Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

Price & Time: Key Levels to Watch Ahead of the FOMC

We have spent a lot of ink over the past weeks writing about patterns and their various implications. We continue with that theme today as the recent price action in Gold shows that some of the sharpest moves in markets often stem from patterns that don’t work out. Late last week XAU/USD triggered a fairly clear minor head & shoulders pattern on the move through 1186. The daily/weekly close below the neckline likely enticed even more shorts into the market. It all proved to be a trap as the move on Monday forced a pretty severe squeeze as the rally back over the neckline and right shoulder invalidated the pattern. Often times false pattern breaks signal an important shift in market sentiment and there is a good chance that this position squeeze could morph into a more meaningful move higher. A clear break of 1225 within the next few days would signal that such a move is underway. On the flipside, it would take a break of 1175 to turn the immediate technical picture negative again.
