  • How Crazy It Is to Short Gold with RSI Close to 30

    July 16, 2018, 9:32 AM
    How Crazy It ...

    Aiming to make money on gold price’s decline is always controversial. The long-term fundamentals remain favorable and gold and silver are likely to exceed their previous highs in the coming years. True, but that doesn’t mean that both metals can’t move even lower in the next several weeks or even months. Different factors govern more short-term-oriented trades as markets are emotional, not logical in the near term.

    One of the popular techniques that is used to detect good entry and exit prices for gold is the RSI indicator and the most popular way to use it is to buy when RSI moves to 30 and sell when RSI reaches 70.

    Yet, sometimes it’s a good idea to keep shorting gold even with RSI close to 30. In today’s articles we’ll explain why this is the case.

    Uptrend Continues, but..

    Friday's trading session was pretty much uneventful, as investors awaited the coming quarterly earnings releases season. The S&P 500 index continued to trade along the level of 2,800 and it's closer to breaking higher towards the late January record high. There are still two possible medium-term scenarios, but bulls are happier than a week ago.

    Is it the ...

    Although last week’s decline took the USD Index under the late June’s lows, currency bulls didn’t break down with this deterioration and responded to their rivals fairly in previous days. Thanks to their determination, the greenback has wiped out most of the recent decline, which in combination with several other positive factors about which we wrote in today's Forex Trading Alert suggests that ...

    A Picture Less ...

    The move up seemed to be continuing and the first impression was that we were seeing a first period of appreciation in some time. But the operative word here is “seemed.” If we take a closer look at what the current environment really is, the picture is far less pretty.

  • Stocks Trying to Break Higher Again, Will They?

  • Gold’s & Silver’s Reversals’ Reversals

    July 11, 2018, 7:44 AM
    Gold’s & Silver’s ...

    In yesterday’s analysis, we discussed how meaningful gold and silver’s pre-market decline was given a relatively small move in the USD Index. The implications were quite bearish for the PM market, especially that we had just seen a target being reached in gold stocks. And because mining stocks had just underperformed gold for the first time in weeks. Yet, before the day was over, the USD, gold and silver had all reversed and erased most of their daily moves. Does it make the outlook bullish again? Is gold still likely to reach $1,300 shortly?

  • USD/CAD - The Good, The Bad and… The Profit

    July 10, 2018, 11:09 AM
    USD/CAD - The ...

    They say that the fortune favors the bold, but “they” clearly have never tried making money while trading the forex market. “Nobody ever got broke by taking profits” seems more reasonable as far as sayings go, but the truth is that in the end it’s always the risk to reward that decides whether a given position should be held or not and deviating from it is costly sooner or later. The situations in the EUR/USD and USD/CAD pairs were just very favorable, but they are now only somewhat favorable and exercising the above key rule seems appropriate. This is a profitable execution.

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview, we will examine in detail the recent monetary policy decisions undertaken by the Fed and the ECB, and analyze what they mean for the gold market. Given the fears that the Fed’s tightening will cause the next crisis, we will examine this hypothesis in the context of the gold market, focusing on the emerging countries, which are especially sensitive to changes in the Fed’s stance. Italian yields have already spiked, while Argentina and Turkey face economic crises...
