Trading Outlook for Gold Price, Crude Oil, Dow Jones, DAX 30 & More

2018-10-31 11:00:00
Paul Robinson, Strategist
Share:

Gold coming off resistance quickly has price support in focus, but looks more likely to head towards the next level (line in this case) of support. The drop in crude oil may be over soon, but a rally looks likley to prove only corrective in what looks to be a broader move lower. The Dow Jones has been holding up better than the SPX and NDX, and so far is holding trend support from 2016. The DAX 30 is caught between a break of the long-term head-and-shoulders pattern and significant trend support.

Technical Highlights:

  • Gold has a couple of support areas to watch
  • Crude oil may find some buyers, bounce not expected to last
  • Dow Jones holding longer-term trend support for now
  • DAX 30 caught between two strong levels

Gold has a couple of support areas to watch

Gold’s turn down from the 1240 area has support in focus around 1214/10, the top part of the range during August into the early part of this month. If sellers show up in earnest the next likely spot of support will come at the lower parallel of the channel off the August low. Right now the thinking is that the lower threshold will get tested. Silver is heading lower out of a bear-flag, with the August low and worse targeted.

Crude oil may find some buyers, bounce not expected to last

Yesterday, crude oil turned higher off a trend-line from summer but has yet to thoroughly test lows over the past few months. At some point soon a bounce could develop, but that is all it will be viewed as at this time. The broader picture has turned negative with breaks of the July slope and June trend-line from last year following a turn down off the 2008 trend-line and lows from 2011/12. A retest of those broken lines from 2017 could make for a good spot to look for oil to resume lower after correcting.

Dow Jones holding longer-term trend support for now

The Dow Jones, unlike the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100, is still holding trend support from 2016. This keeps the index supported for now, but not expected to last. There is the underside of a trend-line running over from April just ahead, along with the 200-day MA. This area could make for a good spot for short-term shorts to look to sell if met and momentum turns back lower. Markets are volatile right now, so being flexible and nimble here is key.

DAX 30 caught between two strong levels

The DAX is coming off a test of the 2011 trend-line, but now about to face off with the neckline of the head-and-shoulders pattern recently triggered. The neckline was broken on a gap at 11524. A turn down from resistance may offer an attractive short entry for another test of the 2011 trend-line. We could see some bouncing around between these two big thresholds, but should we see the 2011 trend-line break at some point the DAX is seen as being in for a big decline.
