Gold enters bull market - where next?


Recommended Posts

The recent push up in the price of gold means that it is now, technically, in another bull market. The price has risen over 20% since the lows seen back in September 2022.

Gold has just tipped over into bull market today, which means it's up over 20% from the recent lows.

There’s a couple of things going on behind all this. First of all, it's the geopolitics and this continues to see money going into gold as a safe haven. We've got the inflationary aspect as well - two big factors that are giving some sort of support to what's going on with the price of gold.

US dollar basket

I think this is best illustrated if you look at what's happening as well in the foreign exchange markets, the dollar. Before we get to the gold chart, I want to show you the dollar basket because the dollar basket is pulling back. Anything priced in dollars gets this extra lift that we've got.


So there's a number of factors contributing to this move up in the price of gold. But look at this run that we've had from the lows we had back on the 28th of September when we were looking at levels of 1616. And you can see if we look back on that, that was the lowest print that we've seen there since the 8th of April 2020.

But look at the shape of this, the way that it's waving back here. And this is quite a good run that we've got from those lows that we had up to where we are at at 1940. This market is now up 20.23% from those lows. So it is now in a technical bull market.

Where's it go from here? As you can see here there's not actually much stopping it now, from where we are at 1940, all the way up to 2000, which was the spike higher we had back on the 18th of April so far as the record high was concerned. Well, that was back in March 2022, when that market was up at almost 2100 per ounce, we’re quite a way from there, but certainly in some people's eyes, that's the price target to go for.

    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco      
    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
