Gold (XAU) and Silver (XAG) Price Analysis and Charts.

  • Gold (XAU) overbought and lower prices likely in the short-term.
  • Silver (XAG) oversold but technical indicators continue to weigh.

DailyFX Q2 Forecasts and Top 2019 Trading Opportunities.

Gold (XAU) Remains Overbought in the Near-Term

Gold is looking likely to fade slightly lower in the short-term with one technical indicator – CCI – continuing to flash an overbought signal for the precious metal. The recent one-month high made yesterday, pushed the CCI indicator to its highest level since late-February when the price of gold was trading more than $1,340/oz. Any short-term sell-off will likely be constrained by support at $1,292/oz. ahead of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level at $1,287/oz. Below there, old horizontal support levels at $1,281/oz. and $1,277/oz. come into play.

Silver (XAG) – Downtrend Remains in Place

A series of lower highs off the February 20 high print dominates Silver’s chart and suggests lower prices ahead. Silver currently changes hands at $14.82 and is under pressure from a technical perspective, as it trades below all three moving averages and the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $14.91, its initial upside target. For a medium-term bear market to gain more credence, Silver will need to close below the May 2 low at $14.56 to establish a fresh lower low. The CCI indicator has moved out of oversold territory but recent upticks have proved weak and short-lived.
