Posted on December 10, 2018 at 9:45 am GMT

A bearish correction would drive prices until the 1243 support level, taken from the [..]

Technical Analysis – Silver pauses negative tendency, creating neutral phase

Posted on December 6, 2018 at 2:30 pm GMT

Silver has been consolidating since August 15 and has been stuck in a sideways channel. The neutral to bearish picture in the medium term looks to last for a while longer after prices failed to break above the upper channel in the preceding month. Resistance was met at around 14.90 region and significant support at 13.90, forcing the price to remain in a range. Technical indicators confirm this view with the RSI approaching the 50 level with weak momentum and the MACD [..]

Technical Analysis – Gasoline futures rally above 50-SMA

Posted on December 4, 2018 at 11:38 am GMT

Gasoline futures (for December delivery) managed to violate to the upside the 50-period simple moving average (SMA) on the four-hour chart yesterday, for the first time since early November, recovering some of its longer-term losses following the fall from 751.50. Today the pair jumped well into the Ichimoku cloud to touch two-week highs at 599.38, a sign that buying interest might continue to heat up as the MACD keeps gaining positive momentum significantly above its red signal line. Yet with the RSI approaching its overbought limit of 70, another [..]

Gold challenges upper bound of triangle as risk events loom – Commodity News

Posted on November 29, 2018 at 3:39 pm GMT

Bullion is currently testing the upper bound of a triangle pattern, with the latest leg higher fueled by a drop in the dollar after Fed chief Powell struck a cautious-perceived tone. Several risk events lie ahead, including the FOMC minutes, the Trump-Xi meeting, and potential US tariffs on cars; the way these play out may determine the yellow metal’s short-term direction. Gold continues to trade almost entirely as a mirror reflection of the US dollar, a pattern that has dominated [..]

Posted on November 28, 2018 at 11:49 am GMT

Gold bears entered the market on Tuesday, driving the precious metal to two-week lows. The 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the upleg from 1,196 to 1,230, at 1213 is currently acting as a barrier to steeper declines on the four-hour chart. The MACD though warns that bearish actions may break this wall as the indicator seems to have already started a new bearish phase below its red signal line. Yet the RSI suggests that the market is very close to its oversold area, suggesting that upside corrections cannot be [..]
