Gold Price Outlook: Recovery from 2019 Low Faces Critical Test

Gold Price Outlook: Recovery from 2019 Low Faces Critical Test

Justin McQueen, Analyst

Gold Price Analysis and Talking Points:

  • Gold Prices Bounce Back as Investors Seek Safe Havens
  • Gold Technical Analysis | Recovery Faces First Test
  • Plethora of US data May Dictate Gold

See our quarterly gold forecast to learn what will drive prices throughout Q2!

Gold Prices Bounce Back as Investors Seek Safe Havens

Despite the topside breakout in the USD index, gold prices have managed to stage a slight recovery from its 2019 lows, refraining from making a test of the 200DMA situated at 1250. The slight rebound had stemmed from increased signs of weaker global growth with the likes of South Korea (bellwether for global trade & tech) reported the largest contraction in GDP since the financial crisis (full story), while Germany has also showed little signs of a recovery (full story), which in turn has seen global bond yields drop. Consequently, gold is set to have its first weekly gain in a month.

Gold Technical Analysis | Recovery Faces First Test

Gold prices are set to face its first test with the precious metal edging towards prior trendline support, which is now resistance at $1284, while the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement (2018 peak to 2018 low) at $1287 could also curb further advances. As such, failure to make a decisive break above could see a retest of the 2019 low ($1266) before the 50% Fibo ($1262).

Plethora of US data May Dictate Gold

From here on till next week, there will be a plethora of tier 1 macro data out of the US, which could dictate price action in Gold with US Q1 GDP released today while the FOMC and NFP report will be digested next week.
