Gold (XAU) Price, Charts and Analysis

  • US dollar on the backfoot and below trend support.
  • Positive take from latest US-China trade talks and Brexit negotiations.

Q4 2019 Gold Forecast and Top Trading Opportunities

Gold is back above $1,500/oz. in early trade, boosted by a weak US dollar complex. The US dollar basket (DXY) has opened below recent trend support off the June 25 low for the first time flashing a bearish signal. US President Trump is meeting Chinese Vice Premier Liu He today amid signs that talks are taking a positive shift for the first time since the trade war erupted over 15-months ago. Brexit talks have also taken a turn for the better in the last 24 hours with both sides suggesting there is a pathway forward, the first time that the two sides have agreed on anything for months.

Any progress in talks between the two super powers will be welcome news for financial markets and trigger a fresh risk-on move, pushing the value of the safe-haven US dollar lower. The daily chart below shows today’s trend break, leaving the USD at risk of further falls.

Gold continues to re-build a base between $1,480/oz. and $1,490/oz. after the late September/early October sell-off. Current price action is just below the 20- and 50-dma and these moving averages will need to be cleared to allow gold to push higher. Above here, two recent high prints at $1,517/oz. and $1,519.5/oz. need to be closed above to open the way to the September 24 high at $1,535.8/oz.
