Gold quotes are trying to recover

Gold prices show moderate corrective growth, consolidating after an active decline yesterday, returning the XAU/USD pair to the local lows of May 3. Currently, the instrument is testing 1860, receiving support from technical factors.

The strengthening dollar and the growth in the yield of US Treasury bonds put pressure on the positions of the metal. Thus, the underlying 10-year securities reached 3.185%, which is the highest level since November 2018, but now, it has corrected to the area of 3.040%, while the USD Index exceeded the high of December 2002 at 104.120, but now it has fallen to 103.590. Also, last week, the US Federal Reserve expectedly increased interest rates by 50 points to 1.00% and announced the start of a phased reduction in its balance sheet. In subsequent comments, the head of the regulator, Jerome Powell, dispelled reports that in the future, officials could accelerate the pace of monetary tightening and, for example, adjust the rate by 75 percentage points. Against this backdrop, gold quotes are supported by the prospects for continued growth in consumer inflation in the US during the current quarter, although it has already reached its highest level in 40 years, around 8.5%. Tomorrow, American investors will be watching the April statistics, which may show the first signs of weakening. In particular, it is assumed that the consumer prices will be only 0.2% MoM after rising by 1.2% for March and may fall 8.5% to 8.1% YoY.

Bollinger Bands show a moderate decline on the daily chart: the price range narrows, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous trading dynamics in the short term. MACD falls, keeping a poor sell signal below the signal line. Stochastic falls close to its lows, indicating that instrument may become oversold in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1877.83, 1900, 1930, 1952.53 | Support levels: 1850.2, 1823.09, 1800, 1760.74

The precious metal quotes show a local downward trend, trading around 21.5.

The key factor that led to the global sell-off in commodity markets was the US Federal Reserve's inflation forecast for April, which suggests a decline to 8.1% from 8.5% a month earlier. The main US statistics on the dynamics of consumer prices will be published today at 14:30 (GMT+2). Adjusting the interest rate to 1.00% could not have had such an early effect, and there are no prerequisites for reducing real inflation now: oil quotes are held above 100 dollars per barrel, contributing to fuel price growth, which increases the cost of delivering goods and increases their final cost. Thus, the key factors of inflation, such as fuel and food prices, are rising, but the regulator insists that inflation should come down. Uncertainty in the market forces traders to get rid of their assets in the stock market and commodity market.

A serious outflow of investors from silver is also confirmed by data from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), according to which, over the past week, the number of net speculative positions decreased to 28.1K from 35.4K a week earlier. Over the past three weeks, the number of positions has decreased from 46.5K to the current 28.1K for the first time since 2020.

The price left the limits of the rising global channel with dynamic boundaries at 26.50–22.00, breaking the support line yesterday. Technical indicators reversed and gave a sell signal: the range of EMA fluctuations on the Alligator indicator actively expands downwards, and the histogram of the AO oscillator forms downward bars in the sell zone.

On the daily chart, the fifth wave of the higher level (5) of 3 develops, within which the wave 3 of (5) formed. Now, a downward correction is ending as the fourth wave 4 of (5), within which the development of the wave c of 4 is ending.

If the assumption is correct, after the end of the correction, the pair XAUUSD will grow to the levels of 2070.42 - 2200. In this scenario, critical stop loss level is 1770.2.

Quotes of XAU/USD are under pressure from "hawkish" rhetoric from the US Federal Reserve and high prospects for the continuation of an aggressive monetary policy at the June meeting, in particular, a sharp increase in the rate by another 0.50%. The "bearish" momentum is expected to push gold prices towards psychological support at 1800. In addition, investors have become more inclined towards risky assets, redirecting their capital from protective ones, which also puts pressure on quotes, while the fundamental picture changes slightly.

Pressure on the position of gold is also exerted by the rising dollar, which is supported by technical factors and high yields on US Treasury bonds. However, the deteriorating economic outlook and the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe are giving the precious metal some support. At the first sign that central banks will ease their "hawkish" rhetoric, one can expect a noticeable increase in demand for a "defensive" asset.

Among the macroeconomic factors at the beginning of the week, weak Chinese statistics should be singled out, providing additional support to the US currency. Retail Sales in China plunged to a record 11.1% in April after declining 3.5% in March. Analysts had expected a much more modest 6.0% decline.

https://i.ibb.co/Y7RjW6P/gold-1.png

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is expanding from below; however, it fails to catch the surge of the "bearish" sentiment at the moment. MACD is going down preserving a stable sell signal (located below the signal line). Stochastic has been in close proximity to its lows for several days already, which indicates the risks of gold being oversold in the ultra-short term.

Existing short positions should be kept until technical indicators are clarified.

Resistance levels: 1823.09, 1850.2, 1877.83, 1900 | Support levels: 1800, 1775, 1752.87, 1730

On the daily chart, a downward correction of the higher level develops as the second wave (2), within which the wave C of (2) forms. Now, the third wave of the lower level iii of C has formed, and a local correction has started to develop as the fourth wave iv of C.

If the assumption is correct, after the end of the correction, the price will fall to the levels of 18.40–15.71. In this scenario, critical stop loss level is 23.25.

Re: Precious Metals Club

XAGUSD, silver prices are consolidating around 21.5

Silver prices show a slight decline during the Asian session, testing the level of 21.5 for a breakdown. The instrument managed to update the local highs of May 11 the day before; however, the "bulls" failed to consolidate on new levels, as a result of which XAGUSD returned to the opening levels. Pressure on the positions of the instrument was exerted by optimistic macroeconomic data from the USA.

Tuesday’s statistics on the dynamics of Retail Sales in the US was better than market expectations. In April, Retail Sales volumes slowed down from 1.4% to 0.9%, while analysts expected a decline to 0.7%. Retail Sales excluding Autos for the same period slowed down from 2.1% to 0.6%, which turned out to be twice as good as experts' forecasts. Retail Sales Control Group declined marginally from 1.1% to 1.0% in April, while forecasts suggested a sharp slowdown to 0.5%. Thus, sales figures do not yet reflect a dramatic slowdown in consumer activity within the country. This removes some of the risks from investors who are concerned about a possible slowdown in the pace of monetary tightening by the US Federal Reserve.

https://i.ibb.co/r0B5hw2/silver-1.png

Bollinger Bands on the daily chart show a steady decline. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of multidirectional trading dynamics in the short term. MACD indicator is growing, while preserving a rather stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic is showing similar dynamics; however, the indicator line is already approaching its highs, indicating the risks of overbought instrument in the ultra-short term.

The precious metal quotes are being corrected in a downtrend, being around 1814 dollars per ounce.

The asset is declining amid fears for global demand due to the coronavirus outbreak in China, which led to serious restrictions. The negative effect on the Chinese economy can be assessed now. Yesterday, industrial production data were published in April, which fell by 2.9% after rising by 5.0% in March. Retail sales fell 11.1%, well above the 3.5% decline in March. Due to the introduced lockdown, the unemployment rate also increased, which amounted to 6.1% compared to 5.8% in March.

According to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), since mid-March, the number of net speculative positions in gold has decreased from 274.5K to 193.3K, and over the last week, the outflow amounted to 5.9K positions. Thus, the overall speculative position in gold is approaching the minimum levels of the middle of last year at 165–175K positions, which indicates an extremely low demand for the metal.

https://i.ibb.co/QKJQffr/gold.png

On the daily chart of the asset, the price is moving within the global ascending channel, approaching its lower border. Technical indicators maintain a stable sell signal: indicator Alligator’s EMA fluctuations range expands, and the AO oscillator histogram, having moved into the sell zone, continues to form downward bars.

Gold prices show a slight increase during the morning session, developing a fairly strong "bullish" momentum formed in the middle of last week and trading at 1855.9. The main driver of the instrument's recovery was the weakening USD Index, which sharply corrected from multi-year highs around 105, losing more than 2.5%, to a low of 102, despite the "hawkish" rhetoric of the US Fed members.

Demand for XAU/USD is holding up as global tensions escalate as fundamentals change little. Many economies are facing record inflation amid soaring prices for energy and other resources, forcing investors to look for safer alternatives to risky assets. In turn, rising inflation prompts the world's central banks to sharply tighten monetary policy, making gold ownership less attractive, since it does not generate interest income. Meanwhile, a special military operation in Ukraine continues, and the negotiation process is actually stopped, so the conflict is becoming more and more protracted.

Today, investors are waiting for the publication in the US of May statistics on business activity, as well as April data on the dynamics of New Home Sales. During the day, the Chair of the US Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, is also scheduled to speak.

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate active decrease. The price range is narrowing, reflecting the emergence of ambiguous dynamics of trading in the short term. MACD indicator is growing, while preserving a rather stable buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic approached the level of "100" and reversed into a horizontal plane, indicating a strongly overbought instrument in the ultra-short term and signaling in favor of the development of a corrective decline.

Resistance levels: 1877.83, 1900, 1930, 1952.53 | Support levels: 1850.2, 1823.09, 1800, 1775

Re: Precious Metals Club

https://i.ibb.co/8Y0pHMJ/silver-forum-1.png

The escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, high rates of global inflation, and lower forecasts for the recovery of the economies of developed countries create obstacles for further upward dynamics in the XAGUSD pair. However, analysts predict a 5% increase in silver demand in 2022 due to further structural progress in industrial production, which is expected to reach another record level this year, and jewelry sales growth after the coronavirus pandemic. On the supply side, higher mine productivity is expected due to increased production capacity and increased production at existing mines, leading to a 3% increase in global supply in 2022.

Thus, it can be assumed that the fall in metal prices will be stopped when geopolitical tensions decrease and the US Federal Reserve rate stabilizes in a specific target range. Up to this point, the growth of XAGUSD quotes should be taken as a correction.

From the technical analysis position, silver is trading in a long-term downtrend, in which market participants reached the support level of 20.57. Then the RSI technical indicator signaled that the instrument was in the oversold zone, which led to the development of a correction, in which market participants tested the resistance level of 22.2. As long as this level is held by the "bears," further sales of the precious metal will be a priority. The target for short positions will be the May low. If 22.2 is broken upwards and the consolidation above, we should expect the quotes to rise to the next resistance level of 24.25.

https://i.ibb.co/jf3DwhL/silver-1.png

As part of the medium-term downtrend, market participants reached the target zone 3 (21.24–21.05) but failed to consolidate below it, after which a correction began, in which market participants tested the key resistance of the trend at 22.32–22.15. Currently, the zone is holding, which signals the possibility of new sales with the target at the May low of around 20.50.

Re: Precious Metals Club

Quotes of the precious metal are being corrected in a sideways trend, being at around 1845.0.

XAUUSD is holding above the mid-year level at 1800 and, despite the downtrend of the last two months, investments in gold continue to bring income to investors. This can be clearly seen if we compare the dynamics with the main stock markets of the world. The yield of the Dow Jones index over 4 months of this year decreased by 9.63%, the German DAX 30 declined by 12.99%, and the French CAC 40 decreased by 10.97%, while gold over this period increased by 3.75%, which demonstrates that the precious metal performs the function of protecting against fluctuations in financial markets during a period of uncertainty.

According to a report by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), over the past week, short positions of swap dealers in gold were reduced by 18349 contracts, and this is the largest volume of fixing positions over the past year. In the same period, the number of buy positions increased by 25 thousand, which fully reflects the mood of investors who consider the prospects for strengthening the asset's rate to be very high.

On the daily chart of the asset, the price is trading within the global ascending channel, starting to form a reversal after reaching the global support line.

Gold prices show quite active growth during the Asian session, recovering to the previous local highs, updated last week. The instrument is testing 1860 for a breakout, receiving support from a rather weak dollar. However, the USD Index is up 0.05% intraday at 101.68, rebounding from Friday's monthly low of 101.43, as markets weigh Friday's US data to predict the next move by the US Fed. Demand for gold remains stably high, given that the fundamental picture in the markets is changing slightly. Investors are still watching the development of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, which has generated many additional risks and does not yet give any hope for a quick improvement in the situation.

The pressure on the US currency increased last week amid the incident in the Persian Gulf. Earlier, the Greek authorities seized a tanker with Iranian oil, after which they handed it over to the United States. Iran responded to this by detaining two Greek tankers, which could lead to a new escalation of tension in the Middle East. At the same time, as monetary policy tightens in various regions, the demand for risk is gradually recovering, putting pressure on "safe" gold.

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate flat dynamics. The price range expands from above, freeing a path to new local highs for the "bulls". MACD is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, on the contrary, maintains a confident downward direction and at the moment practically does not react to the resumption of growth.

Silver prices show a slight decrease during trading in Asia, developing a corrective momentum formed at the beginning of the current trading week. XAGUSD is testing 21.45 for a breakdown. Risk-driven market sentiment continues to shift to equities as yields rise on US government bonds, which investors currently prefer as alternative sources of additional funds, putting pressure on safe-haven assets such as silver. Since the dynamics of asset quotes of the metal group is inversely proportional to the movement of the US currency, XAGUSD is actively losing value.

Optimistic macroeconomic statistics from the USA provided moderate support to USD on Tuesday. The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices accelerated from 20.3% to 21.2% in March, ahead of market forecasts of a decline to 20%, and the Chicago PMI strengthened from 56.4 to 60.3 points in May, while the market expected a slight decline to 55 points. At the same time, Dallas Fed Manufacturing Business Index fell from 1.1 to -7.3 points in May, contrary to the forecast of growth to 4.9 points.

Silver, in turn, reacts positively to the long-awaited reopening of manufacturing facilities in Shanghai from June 1. Only 67 new cases of COVID-19 infection were detected in the country's largest financial center last Sunday, according to the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China. The authorities also eased some quarantine restrictions in Beijing. In general, the pace of industrial production in China is recovering, which increases the demand for silver as an industrial raw material.

The XAUUSD pair holds above the key level of the previous 1800 and are currently being corrected after a slight increase.

Despite significant fluctuations in world markets, precious metals remain one of the most reliable investments. If traders preferred contracts for gold a year ago, today, buyers are showing particular interest in bullion and coins. According to the US Mint, sales of the most popular American Golden Eagle series in May of this year significantly exceeded previous periods: 200.5K coins or 147K ounces of gold equivalent were sold, significantly higher than 122.5K or 88K ounces sold in April. Also, if we consider the dynamics of sales in May 2021 with a figure of only 20.5K ounces, then the positive trend becomes more and more obvious.

According to the latest report from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), over the past week, the global downtrend for the precious metal has been reversed, and after six weeks of constant decline, an increase in the number of gold contracts was recorded to 183.8K from 175.4K, which is quite expected, given the sharp outflow of short swap dealers, which was reported a week earlier.

Gold prices are holding around 1840 during the Asian session, trying to correct after a slight decline on Monday. XAUUSD remains under pressure after the release of fairly strong data from the US labor market: employment rose by 390K, which is better than the projected value of 325K, and the Unemployment Rate, instead of the expected decline to 3.5%, remained at 3.6%. The statistics highlighted the stability of the sector and its readiness to cope with the increase in interest rates from the US Federal Reserve, which may contribute to further tightening of monetary policy. In addition, the uptrend in the yield of 10-year US bonds makes the dollar an extremely attractive asset for investment.

An additional negative factor for gold is the current position of the European Central Bank (ECB). The regulator has recently been actively speaking out in favor of raising interest rates in order to curb the sharp rise in inflation. The ECB will meet on Thursday, and some analysts believe that it will announce the start of a reduction in the quantitative easing (QE) program. An increase in the interest rate, according to current forecasts, is possible in Q3 2022, provided that the situation in the markets does not change radically.

Silver is trying to recover its positions
Silver prices are moderately declining during the morning session, again testing 22 for a breakdown. The day before, the instrument made another attempt to grow, reacting to a corrective decline in the yield of US Treasury bonds, which retreated from their previous highs at 3.038% to 2.979%.

At the same time, trading participants are in no hurry to open new trading positions for the instrument, preferring to wait for the decisions of major global financial regulators on monetary policy issues. In particular, a meeting of the European Central Bank (ECB) will be held this week, at which, as expected, the regulator may announce the start of a quantitative tightening program, and next week the key issues will be discussed by the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, from which the market expects a "hawkish" rhetoric. In turn, the Bank of Japan, judging by the recent comments of its Governor Haruhiko Kuroda, will maintain a soft position.

Moderate demand for silver is also supported by the gradual recovery of industrial activity in China. However, the situation is ambiguous here, as growth in Asia may be offset by a noticeable drop in industrial activity in Europe, where supply chain disruption, high inflation and rising energy prices are causing many factories to stop working. Disruptions are especially noticeable in high-tech areas, where the use of silver as a raw material has always occupied a fairly high percentage.

Although the number of positions in gold for the last week began to gradually increase, the statistics for silver remains at the levels of the previous week. According to the latest report from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the advantage in open positions remains in favor of sellers (37.877K positions), while buyers have only 7.797K open contracts. In addition, last week, buyers liquidated 0.926K positions, while sellers, on the contrary increased their number by 0.997K.

https://i.ibb.co/DCQpmbV/silver-1.png

On the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are gradually reversing horizontally. The price range is slightly narrowed from below, being spacious enough for the current activity level in the market. MACD is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic, having not reached its boundary level of "80", reversed into a horizontal plane, reacting to the emergence of "bearish" trend during the Asian session.

The XAUUSD pair is correcting within a sideways trend, trading at 1850 with no signs of a possible change in the current trend.

Yesterday, the World Gold Council (WGC) published a new report on government stocks from March to April 2022. Thus, Turkey's reserves increased by 6.5 tons to 436.7 tons, Kazakhstan – by 5.3 tons, and the total volume reached 373.4 tons of metal, while Uzbekistan's reserves were replenished by 8.7 tons to 346.2 tons. Only the Philippines should be singled out among the major sellers during this period, which managed to sell 5 tons of the precious metal, reducing the available resources to 151.3 tons.

The data released yesterday by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) disappointed the experts. According to the report, at the beginning of this month, investors reduced the number of net speculative positions in gold to 172.6K from 183.8K, although a week earlier, the figure for the first time in the last two months increased from 175.4K to 183.8K.

As a result, even with an increased interest in physical gold from the central banks, the demand for contracts from market participants continues to remain low, which does not allow the quotes of the XAUUSD pair to strengthen their positions.

The daily chart shows that the price is moving within the global ascending channel, near the support line. Technical indicators maintain a weakening sell signal: fast EMAs on the Alligator indicator are approaching the signal line, and the AO oscillator histogram, being in the sell zone, is forming upward bars.

The pair grow.
On the daily chart, the fifth wave of the higher level (5) of 3 develops, within which the wave 3 of (5) formed, and a downward correction developed as the fourth wave 4 of (5). Now, the formation of the fifth wave 5 of (5) has started, within which the first entry wave of the lower level (i) of i of 5 has formed, and the correctional wave (ii) of i of 5 is developing.

If the assumption is correct, after the end of the correction, the XAU USD pair will grow to the levels of 2000 – 2070. In this scenario, critical stop loss level is 1785.69.

Gold prices show a corrective decline, retreating from their local highs from May 9, updated at the beginning of the week. Investors are taking profits on long positions opened last Friday, when the demand for XAU/USD increased again after the publication of multidirectional macroeconomic statistics on inflation in the US. The released data showed an acceleration of the indicator in May to 8.1%, which was a new record high since December 1981. On a monthly basis, the country's Consumer Price Index accelerated from 0.3% in April to 0.7%, and the Core CPI excluding Food and Energy, slowed down to 6.0% from 6.2%, which is quite obvious, because the reason for the current negative dynamics in the United States is the rise in energy prices.

In turn, the revision of inflation data is likely to lead to a more aggressive policy of the US Federal Reserve, aimed at tightening monetary conditions. In particular, the regulator may decide to either raise interest rates more quickly, for example, by 75 basis points at once, or continue the planned correction of the value after two meetings in June and July. Earlier it was assumed that officials would take a break after two rate hikes in the summer, to assess the impact of the measures taken on the economy and consumer price growth.

Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate flat dynamics. The price range is expanding; however, it fails to catch the surge of last week's "bearish" sentiments. MACD is growing preserving a weak buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic is showing similar dynamics; however, the indicator line is already approaching its highs, indicating the risks of overbought instrument in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 1869.49, 1878.84, 1900, 1920 | Support levels: 1850.20, 1823.09, 1800, 1775

On the daily chart, a downward correction of the higher level develops as the second wave (2), within which the wave C of (2) forms. Now, the fifth wave v of C is developing, within which a local correction of the lower level has formed as the wave (iv) of v, and the development of the wave (v) of v has started.

If the assumption is correct, the XAG USD pair will fall to the levels of 18.4 - 15.6. In this scenario, critical stop loss level is 22.52.

XAG USD, silver is trying to recover positions
Silver is trying to recover from a sharp decline at the beginning of the week, when the asset retreated to local lows of May 16. Positive dynamics are due to technical factors and expectations of the US Federal Reserve's decision on interest rates. Experts do not doubt that the US regulator will again increase the cost of borrowing, but the pace of tightening monetary policy is still in question. Previous forecasts suggested a rate hike of 50 basis points. However, after the data on inflation in the country for May was published at the end of last week, the agency may decide to add 75 basis points to the indicator. Additional pressure on the trading instrument is exerted by the growth in the yield of US Treasury bonds: thus, this value for 10-year securities yesterday renewed annual highs for 2022, approaching 3.45%.

The deterioration of the epidemiological situation in China also hurts metal quotes. Only two weeks have passed since the lifting of quarantine restrictions, and Beijing and Shanghai are once again forced to carry out mass testing and restrict the work of enterprises due to a new outbreak of the disease. On Tuesday, the city Health Committee reported that 25 new cases of COVID-19 infection and 38 asymptomatic carriers of the infection were recorded in the capital of the country. Analysts fear that industrial activity in China will again decline, negatively affecting the demand for silver as an industrial raw material.

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands moderately decrease: the price range expands from below but not as fast as the "bearish" trend develops at the moment. MACD develops a downward trend, maintaining a fairly strong sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic maintains a strong downward direction but rapidly approaches its lows, indicating that silver may become oversold in the ultra-short term.

Resistance levels: 21.21, 21.4, 21.69, 22 | Support levels: 20.86, 20.58, 20.39, 20
