Gold Price and US Dollar News and Analysis

  • US Dollar finding support and may turn higher.
  • Gold approaching Fibonacci resistance; RSI indicator at a four-month high.

The DailyFX Q3 Gold Forecast is now available to help traders navigate the market.

Gold Likely to Drift Lower as US Dollar nears Support

A tale of resistance and support as two of the most liquid financial assets continue to weigh on each other. The US dollar index – currently at 94.35 – is nearing strong support at 94.00 and may turn higher, putting pressure on the recent sharp gold rally. Monday’s news of a new trade agreement between the US and Mexico is supportive in the short-term for the greenback ahead of some heavyweight data releases later this week.

Gold and USDCNH Correlation Remains Intact

The latest gold rally has also been aided, and driven, by the turnaround in the Chinese Yuan’s fortune against the US dollar. After rallying from around USDCNH 6.20 to USDCNH 6.96 over the last four-months, the pair have turned lower, pushing gold higher.

Gold Price Rally Nears Strong Technical Resistance Level

Gold is now approaching technical resistance and may struggle to close higher in the short-term. Fibonacci retracement at $1,215.4/oz. is close, while the 20-day moving average at $1,221/oz. will provide further resistance. A clean break and close above these levels will leave $1,236/oz. as a viable upside target.

A look at the RSI indicator also shows gold’s relative strength at a four-month high and inching towards overbought territory.

The latest IG Retail Sentiment Indicatorshows that traders remain 83.2% net-long of the precious metal, normallya bearish contrarian sentiment indicator. However recent changes in client sentiment give us a mixed trading bias.
