Technical Analysis – Silver bulls meet long-term trendline, but not ready yet to give up

Posted on July 3, 2020 at 10:34 am GMT

Silver attempted to break the upper border of the neutral zone it has been ranging within this week, but its efforts proved unsuccessful as the trendline joining the peaks from September 2019 defended the bears once again at 18.42. Hence, the short-run risk is looking neutral-to-positive at the moment and another retest of the soft downward-sloping trendline is likely. Particularly, a decisive close above the 18.65 barrier might be what the bulls are eagerly waiting for to rally towards the three-year [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI futures weaken their bullish move above SMAs

Posted on July 2, 2020 at 7:55 am GMT

WTI crude oil futures have found resistance at the 41.60 barrier, sending prices sideways in the short-term. Oil is keeping its position above the moving averages despite the contradicting signals in the momentum indicators. The MACD is holding beneath its trigger line in the positive territory, while the RSI is pointing marginally up in the bullish region. In case of more upside pressures and a successful climb above the immediate resistance of 41.60, the next hurdle would come from the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold’s strength prevails; defeats all obstacles

Posted on July 1, 2020 at 8:14 am GMT

Gold’s brake pads seem to have no effect on the triumphing bullish structure, which has hiked to an almost 8 year high of 1,788. The commodity’s overwhelming climb is tackling the 1,788 mark, that being the 123.6% Fibonacci extension of the down leg from 1,765 to 1,670. The pickup in positive momentum is also reflected in the strengthening Ichimoku lines. Glancing at the short-term oscillators, they too aid an improving picture suggesting upcoming advances. The MACD is in the positive [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI futures fails to improve positive mode; neutral in very short-term

Posted on June 30, 2020 at 9:04 am GMT

WTI crude oil futures have been trading within a narrow range, inside the Bollinger band confirmed by the momentum indicators. The RSI is moving sideways in the positive region near the 50 level, while the MACD is flattening marginally above trigger and zero lines. The flat movement is in line with the 40-period simple moving average (SMA), which acts as support for the bears. If the price jumps above the upper Bollinger band, immediate resistance could appear at the 15-week [..]

Technical Analysis – Brent futures pull back from more than 3-month peak

Posted on June 29, 2020 at 1:23 pm GMT

Brent crude oil futures stretched their two-month rally to a more than three-month high of 44.00 last Tuesday before pulling slightly lower. The RSI seems to be gaining momentum above the 50 level, while the stochastic oscillator is ready to post a bullish crossover within its %K and %D lines above the oversold territory. The market trend is likely to hold on the upside as long as the price holds far above the moving averages in the short term. If [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold trades near almost 8-year peak; still bullish

Posted on June 29, 2020 at 7:20 am GMT

Gold prices are continuing the upside movement, creating new highs and touching an almost eight-year peak at 1,779. The short-term technical indicators are neutral-to-bullish and point to a somewhat stromger market. The MACD is holding well above its zero and trigger lines, while the RSI is hovering in positive territory. The Ichimoku lines are also suggesting a bullish bias as the red Tenkan-sen line is standing above the blue Kijun-sen line and the cloud is looking for more upside movements. [..]

Technical Analysis – Palladium futures test floor of sideways market

Posted on June 26, 2020 at 5:10 am GMT

Palladium futures have consolidated below the 1,853 level, that being the 50.0% Fibonacci retracement of the up leg from 1,353 to 2,354, after yesterday challenging the bottom of a one-month trading range. The latest negative push within the range has some backing from the bearish overlaps of the mostly horizontal 200-period simple moving average (SMA) by the downward sloping 50- and 100-period ones. Nevertheless, the negative bearing within the short-term oscillators has paused and thus a bounce from the foundation [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI futures pause ascent ahead of key resistance

Posted on June 25, 2020 at 9:03 am GMT

WTI oil futures faded prior to reaching a critical resistance level at 43.69 and appear to be reloading for a push higher to revisit this mark. The recent weakening in the price is mirrored in the flattening of the Ichimoku lines and within the short-term oscillators. However, the near completion of a bullish crossover of the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) by the soaring 50-day one could boost positive sentiment and refuel the unbroken positive tone in the Ichimoku lines. [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI futures advance to 15-week high as bulls are back in play

Posted on June 23, 2020 at 9:34 am GMT

WTI crude oil futures came close to breaking the 15-week high of 41.21 and the upper Bollinger band in the 4-hour chart. According to the RSI, the market could maintain positive momentum as the indicator is positively sloped above its neutral threshold of 50, though the MACD oscillator is still continuing with somewhat weak momentum above the zero lines. On the upside, the price could attempt to overcome the 41.21 high and retest the 43.60 resistance, which if successfully broken the door could open for the 200-simple [..]
