Gold & Silver Price Analysis and Talking Points:

  • Gold Prices Maintain Bullish Outlook, Double Top Eyed
  • Silver Price Outlook | ETF Surge Bodes well for Silver Prices

See our quarterly gold forecast to learn what will drive prices throughout Q3!

Gold Prices Maintain Bullish Outlook, Double Top Eyed

As Fed Chair Powell set the stage for an interest rate cut at the end of the month, gold prices reclaimed the psychological $1400 level as the USD dropped. As such, with central bank easing on the way from both the Fed and ECB, global bond yields continue to head lower sparking a record amount of global bonds yielding negative rates, thus the opportunity cost for holding gold is reduced. Alongside this, the backdrop of slowing global growth has also underpinned the precious metal, thus, risks remain tilted to the upside with the double top in sight at $1435-40.

Silver Price Outlook | ETF Surge Bodes well for Silver Prices

Silver prices remain underpinned by psychological support at the $15 level. Although, near term resistance at the 38.2% Fib ($15.33) has kept gains limited thus far. However, with institutional buying increasingly evident given the widening divergence between total ETF holdings (currently at 2019 highs) of silver and the price, raises scope for a push higher in the white metal.
