Gold Rejects 14-Month High

Gold’s latest rally took it to within $3/oz. of levels last seen in April 2018 as the precious metal continued to rally on the back of a weakening US dollar. Gold has rallied nearly $70/oz. – 5.4% - in a week and the market is currently edging lower. The next move in the precious metal will be predicated by Friday’s US Labor report (NFPs) with any weakness in the jobs report a positive for the precious metal. Wednesday’s US ADP employment change report rattled the US dollar, missing expectations by a wide margin – actual 27k vs 183k exp – and printing a nine-year low.

On the charts, gold may well look to fill the gap between $1,309/oz, and $1,320/oz. before any attempt to move higher. Below here there is a tight zone between $1,301 and $1,304/oz. that has provided supportive. To the upside, $1,346.8/oz. guards April 2018 high at $1,365/oz. a level that may well be tested if US NFPs miss expectations.

The CCI indicator shows that the market remains heavily overbought and may well slow any further upside in the short-term.
