Q3 2019 Gold Forecast and Top Trading Opportunities

Gold Rally Pauses but Underlying Market Remains Firm

As we start the week, gold is trading around $1,490/oz. off its recent multi-year high but still firmly in positive territory after the recent upsurge. The fundamentals behind the recent move remain in place and while the price may be edging lower, a period of consolidation, or price correction, is needed before the next move higher.

Gold Price Weekly Forecast: Bullish Breakout Remains In-Play

On the charts, the 61.8% Fibonacci level at $1,492/oz. has just been broken but remain in-plays while the recent high/low either side of $1,472/oz should provide support if the price continues to fade lower. Overall the chart remains positive, trading above all three moving averages, while gold has moved back out of the overbought zone.

Silver Eyes Support Zone

Silver’s recent breakout has stalled, and the recent slip back has pushed the price back towards an important support zone between an old double-high at $16.65/oz. and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $16.56/oz. Just below here is the 20-day moving average which again should provide a level of support. As with gold, the chart remains biased to further upside with the recent drift lower taking silver out of extreme overbought territory.
