Market and Price Action (patterns, candlesticks)

Gold (XAU/USD)


  • Daily 4H : Gold may be heading south towards  1350 . A break below that targets 1330 . We also see a rising support in the daily, that might be met above 1350 .
  • A break above 1382  should put the bearish scenario aside, and a break above 1396 should start the discussion of a bullish scenario.
  • However, the market is ranging, so it is more likely that it is moving from pivot to pivot, without following a clear trend.
  • In the 4H chart, the latest rally failed to close above 61.8% of the previous leg down, keeping the sentiment bearish in the near-term.
  • But, if the market stays within a channel, a rally can sees resistance at 1408 , then the  1430  all-time high recently established.

Silver (XAG/USD)

  • Daily 4H : Silver is a tad stronger, the RSI is staying above the 40 level in the 4H chart. The Gold 4H RSI dipped below 40. Gold showed a lower low, but Silver kept it above it previous low.

  • In fact silver looks to be respecting a rising support, and a break above 29.30  suggests bullish continuation. RSI would confirm with a surge above 60.

  • 29.90 , then 30.70  are the next targets for a rally in silver. However, a range between 29.90  and  28 could be developing.

  • The bearish attempt on the 7th, has already be reversed as the market retraced more than 61.8% on the 14th. Therefore, the bias is bullish still, and a projection goes to  30.30 , given that it breaks above 29.30 and the 29.90 clip.
