Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Price & Time: USD Advance Getting Long in the Tooth?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD fell sharply again on an option expiration day
  • The move below the late April cycle low has shifted our near-term trend bias negative
  • The 61.8% retracement of the December to March advance at 1260 is now an important downside pivot with weakness under this level needed to confirm that a more serious decline is really underway
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen here, but the middle of next month looks like the next major turn window in the yellow metal
  • A move back through 1286 would shift immediate attention higher

XAUUSD Strategy: Flat.

Focus Chart of the Day: FXCM DOLLAR INDEX

Price & Time: USD Advance Getting Long in the Tooth?

About a month ago we were looking for a strong rally in USD. At the time we were in very limited company as the fundamental background supposedly didn’t warrant a strong dollar. My how things have changed over the past few weeks! We were mostly focused on the euro, but even formerly unstoppable high fliers like Cable and NZD/USD have turned during this positive dollar period. In the broader scheme of things we like the dollar - especially over the second half of the year. In the near-term, however, we think the USD’s rise is getting a bit long in the tooth and will be limited to a few more days (a full week at best) as an important cycle turn window is eyed late this week/early next week. We will leave it to the fundamental guys to pinpoint the “reason” for this shift in sentiment, but from this corner month-end rebalancing shenanigans or a disappointment from the ECB look like clear candidates. We are unsure just how important this USD decline will be, but it would be surprising if it didn’t last at least a couple of weeks. Only new cycle highs in the FXCM Dollar Index after Thursday of next week would completely invalidate our early June negative USD view.
