Gold Weekly Price Chart (XAU/USD)

XAU.

Notes:In my previous Gold Weekly Technical Outlook we noted that the price breakout had,achieved our initial resistance target and leaves the immediate advance vulnerable near-term,” while below Fibonacci resistance at 1322. Price has now set the February opening-range just below this threshold with weekly momentum testing resistance at the 70-threshold. The broader price breakout remains at risk while below this zone.

Initial support remains back at the 2018 open at 1302 with near-term bullish invalidation steady at the highlighted slope confluence around ~1290. ‘A breach higher from here targets the 2018 high-week close at 1350 backed closely by the 2016 trendline just higher around ~1360s.’

For a complete breakdown of Michael’s trading strategy, review his Foundations of Technical Analysis series on Building a Trading Strategy

Bottom line:The immediate focus is on a break of the 1302-1322 zone early in the month with the broader outlook weighted to the topside while above 1290. From a trading standpoint, we’ll favor fading weakness while above confluence support targeting a breach higher in price. Review my latest Gold Price Outlook for a closer look at the near-term trading levels.

Gold Trader Sentiment

Gold
  • A summary of IG Client Sentiment shows traders are net-long Gold - the ratio stands at +2.51 (71.5% of traders are long) – bearish reading
  • Long positions are 3.5% higher than yesterday and 3.0% higher from last week
  • Short positions are 0.7% higher than yesterday and 9.0% lower from last week
  • We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests Gold prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday & last week, and the combination of current positioning and recent changes gives us a stronger Gold-bearish contrarian trading bias from a sentiment standpoint.
