Gold Topside Targets Favored on Bullish RSI Break, USD Correction

Gold Topside Targets Favored on Bullish RSI Break, USD Correction

David Song, Strategist

Talking Points:

- Gold Bullish RSI Break Favors Larger Correction; Former Support Zones in Focus.

- USD/CAD Advances on Dismal Canada Building Permits; Inverse Head-and-Shoulders Remains in Play.

- USDOLLAR at Risk for Larger Pullback as RSI Falls Back From Overbought Territory.

Gold

Gold Chart
  • Long-term outlook for Gold remains bearish, but looks poised for a larger correction as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) breaks out of the bearish momentum carried over from July.
  • As the International Monetary Fund (IMF) cuts its global growth forecast, fears of weaker demand may heighten the bearish sentiment surrounding the bullion.
  • Will watch former support regions for a lower-high; first area of interest comes in around $1,231 (78.6% retracement) to $1,234 (78.6% retracement).

USD/CAD

USD/CAD Chart
  • USD/CAD pares decline from earlier this week as Canada Building Permits contract 27.3% in August; limits the scope of seeing the Bank of Canada (BoC) adopt a hawkish tone for monetary policy.
  • Inverse head-and-shoulders formation continues to favor topside targets especially as the bullish RSI momentum remains in play.
  • Even though the DailyFX Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) has narrowed from the extreme readings, retail crowd remains net-short on USD/CAD as the ratio stands at -1.21.
