This Precious Metal Made Four Straight Days Of Gains

Frank Cabibi

8/16/2021

Gold continues to push higher amid the concerns of the delta variant and investors try to turn to the safe haven asset. China and Australia are struggling with virus outbreaks and shutdowns as economists fear another wave of potential lockdowns around the world.

Our outlook

I have been bullish gold for months now although the performance hasn't been great overall. Shutdowns are hard on a country's economy which is what will be the bullish catalyst in the short term. However, I think gold will be worth much more in the longer term as inflation keeps rising and interest rates remain low. Although lockdowns will help gold rise, I don't think that will happen again in the US as over 50% of citizens are vaccinated. So, the long term behavior is more important to me right now. I think that gold could definitely climb back to $2,000 in a year. In the short term, here is what I see:

Trade Setups

$1,789 is a clear resistance level on the 1D chart, so price will likely test that level and have the potential to retrace after four days of green. A retrace could send price down to support around $1,750, while a push above resistance could take price up to the falling trend around $1,802. Something to watch is that the 50-day has crossed back under the 200-day moving average which signals a death cross, a bearish technical signal. A triple top at $1,830 will possibly be the biggest resistance level to cross above for the metal.

Why the New FOMC Decision Matters

Yesterday, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the Federal Reserve’s policy-making body, implemented yet another 75 basis point interest rate hike. While this move was perfectly in line with market forecasts, Chair Powell’s comments following the subsequent press conference, in which he discussed the FOMC’s new set of economic projections, were significant. He continued to […]

Shocking CAD Inflation News

Statistics Canada released a surprising new batch of inflation data this morning: month-over-month CPI failed to meet market forecasts, declining by 0.3% instead of the anticipated 0.1%. Rather than being an outlier, the other measurements of CPI mostly followed suit, as both year-over-year Trimmed CPI and Median CPI likewise failed to meet expectations. Trimmed CPI’s […]
