Q3 2019 Gold Forecast and Top Trading Opportunities

Gold Chart Looking Increasing Bullish

The daily gold chart shows a ‘bull pennant’ formation taking shape, with the current consolidation period expected to be followed by further upside movement for the precious metal. Any upside break of this pennant should see gold take out its recent six-year high around $1,440/oz. and head towards $1,500/oz. On the weekly chart there is a gap on the April 8, 2013 candle between $1,495/oz. and $1,540/oz. which bullish traders may look to fill.

Silver Stuck and Struggling

The recent break and close above the 200-day moving average has given silver a short-term boost but the metal remains capped by the 38.2% Fibonacci level at $15.54 and the recent multi-month high print just a couple of cents higher. Silver has also drifted into overbought territory and will need a fresh stimulus to keep the recent upside trend intact. The 200-day moving average at $15.13 should provide reasonably strong initial support.
