Gold & Silver Price Analysis and Talking Points:

  • Gold Prices Soar, Risks Remain Tilted to Further Upside
  • Silver Price Outlook | Eyes Topside Resistance Following Breakout

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

Gold Prices Soar, Risks Remain Tilted to Further Upside

Gold prices have extended on its bullish uptrend, hitting a fresh 6yr high (highest level since April 2013) as risk off sentiment dictates price action. The latest catalyst stemmed from the rising political unrest within Hong Kong, which in turn saw equity markets head south, while in the EM complex, Argentine assets crashed following the huge upset in the primary election for President Macri. Adding this to the mix of ongoing trade war tensions between the US and China, therefore keeps risks tilted to the upside for the precious metal with the potential for a move towards $1600, particularly as global bond yields continue to drop towards record lows.

GOLD Technical Levels

Resistance 1: $1587 (61.8% Fibonacci Retracement)

Resistance 2: $1600 (Psychological)

Support 1: $1484 (50% Fibonacci Retracement)

Support 2: $1450 (Psychological)
