Gold Price Outlook Looks to Be Down Before Up

Gold Price Outlook Looks to Be Down Before Up

Paul Robinson, Strategist

Gold Price & Silver Technical Highlights:

  • Gold moving sideways, watch for bearish break inside bull-flag
  • Silver bouncing after bear-flag break, still weak overall

Gold moving sideways, watch for bearish break inside bull-flag

Yesterday, gold came out of the gates hot but was then swatted lower on trade war headlines. This put in a bearish reversal day at trend-line resistance, or what is also the upper threshold of the bull-flag developing since the September high.

The generally sluggish nature of gold right now suggests that another leg lower could be next, especially with resistance having been tagged and abided by. To confirm this, looking for a break of the underside parallel of the channel developing since last month’s low.

A breakdown out of the congestion pattern could quickly have the underside of the broader bull-flag pattern in play along with the 200-day MA which is quickly coming into confluence; the area to watch is near the 1410-mark.

If, however, gold maintains the lower parallel and starts to run higher above the top-side line of the bull-flag and yesterday’s high at 1487 (and stay above), then a run towards testing the formidable levels from 2011/12 could be underway.

All-in-all, it looks like probability is skewed towards seeing a near-term move lower followed by an eventual breakout of the bull-flag. With that said, there are signposts to watch that will help confirm one of the above scenarios, so we don’t need to step too far out on a limb in speculating.

Silver broke down out of a bear-flag last week, but has since recovered. This doesn’t mean it was a false-break, a test here could be all that is in progress before moving lower again. Like gold, silver has a pesky trend-line keeping it pointed down.

Stay below the trend-line and the outlook remains bearish, with the 200-day and peaks from earlier in the year in play down around the 16.25/10-area. A breakout above the top-side trend-line and 17.29 will shift the bias towards seeing higher prices.
