Gold Prices Stuck Amid Brexit Turmoil as US Dollar, Yields Clash

Gold Prices Stuck Amid Brexit Turmoil as US Dollar, Yields Clash

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

GOLD & CRUDE OIL TALKING POINTS:

  • Gold prices stuck amid Brexit turmoil as US Dollar, bond yields diverge
  • Crude oil prices brush off hefty 10.3 million barrel rise in US inventories
  • S&P 500 futures hint at a return to risk-off trade to end the trading week

Commodity prices struggled for lasting direction Thursday. Gold prices were locked in place as worrying Brexit headlines weighed on bond yields and drove the US Dollar higher, putting the metal’s roles as anti-fiat benchmark and non-interest-bearing alternative in conflict.

Meanwhile, crude oil prices overlooked a dramatic build in US inventories. EIA data showed stockpiles added a hefty 10.3 million barrels last week, crushing forecasts calling for a 3.2 million barrel gain. The tepid response may reflect foreshadowing in API figures as well as the preceding record-setting selloff.

GOLD MAY STRUGGLE FOR DIRECTION AS OIL SELLOFF RESUMES

Looking ahead, a lull in top-tier scheduled event risk may put sentiment trends in the spotlight. Bellwether S&P 500 futures are pointing tellingly lower ahead, hinting at a risk-off bias. That may help keep gold anchored while crude oil succumbs to renewed selling pressure, falling alongside share prices.

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

Gold prices are probing above support-turned-resistance in the 1211.05-14.30 area, with break higher confirmed on a daily closing basis exposes the 1260.80-66.44 zone. Alternatively, a turn lower that breaches trend line support – now squarely at the $1200/oz figure – targets the 1180.86-87.83 region next.

CRUDE OIL TECHNICAL ANALYSIS

Crude oil prices continue to mark time above support in the 54.48-55.21 area. A daily close below this barrier opens the door for a test of the 52.34-83 zone. Alternatively, a reversal back above trend line support-turned-resistance – now at 58.74 – exposes the $60/bbl figure anew.
