Gold Prices Risk Larger Rebound Following Failed Run at December-Low

Gold Prices Risk Larger Rebound Following Failed Run at December-Low

Gold Talking Points

Gold prices appear to be on the cusp of a larger rebound following the failed attempt to test the December-low ($1236), and recent price action brings the topside targets back on the radar as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) finally bounces back from oversold territory.

Gold Prices Risk Larger Rebound Followed Failed Run at December-Low

The monthly opening range remains in focus for gold as it snaps back from a fresh 2018-low ($1238), and the precious metal may stage a more meaningful recovery over the coming days as there appears to be a near-term change in market positioning.

Image of IG Client Sentiment report

A look at the IG Client Sentiment Report shows retail interest remains heavily skewed as recent updates show 88.5% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 7.67 to 1, while the number of traders net-long are 6.0% higher than yesterday and 8.2% higher from last week. At the same time, the number of traders net-short is 1.1% lower than yesterday and 11.1% lower from last week, which suggests the recent volatility in gold prices could be a mere function of profit-taking behavior.

Keep in mind, the fact traders are heavily net-long suggests the broader outlook for gold remains tilted to the downside especially as price and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) continue to track the bearish trends from earlier this year, but recent price action warns of a larger rebound as the momentum indicator climbs back above 30 and flashes a textbook buy signal.

Gold Daily Chart

  • Gold prices have faced marked selloff even after the death-cross formation took shake, but the failed run at the December-low ($1236) raises the risk for a larger rebound, with a break/close above the $1260 (23.6% expansion) hurdle bringing the topside targets back on the radar.
  • Next area of interest comes in around $1271 (38.2% expansion) to $1279 (38.2% retracement) followed by the Fibonacci overlap around $1288 (23.6% expansion) to $1291 (50% expansion).
