Gold Price Fundamental Outlook

Gold’s recent push higher is fading as markets put their faith in the latest round of optimistic US-China trade deal reports. News outlets are saying that the US may dial back on some of the tariffs imposed on Chinese goods on September 1 to help push through phase one of a deal with China, and markets are taking a positive slant. The Chinese Yuan is trading back below 7.00 against the US dollar for the first time in three months, after having hit a peak of USD/CNH 7.196 in early September.

Gold Price Technical Analysis

While risk-on asset markets are booming – S&P 500, Nasdaq and the Dow Jones all hit record highs Monday traditional risk-off markets – Japanese Yen, Swiss France and gold – are all fading lower. Gold’s recent move higher helped set-up a bullish pennant pattern, but this is now starting to break down. The extended uptrend line from the October 1 low remains in place and continues to provide support for a further move higher although his move is weakening. The trend line is around $1,500/oz. and is just above both the 20- and 50-day moving averages and a break and close below all three would call the recent bull move further into doubt. Initial support from the downtrend line around $1,488/oz. before the recent double lows at $1,482/oz. before $1,474/oz.
