Technical Analysis – Gold snaps an improving pose ahead of the uptrend line

Posted on April 8, 2020 at 7:52 am GMT

Gold appears to have found some footing at the 1,643 level from March 26 as it creeps towards a very short-term uptrend line drawn from the 1,455.17 low of March 20. Although the simple moving averages (SMAs) are not giving the strongest and clearest trend signals, they do lean slightly to the positive picture, specifically the 50- and 100-period SMAs. That said, the short-term oscillators are suggesting that positive directional momentum may be starting to pick up. The MACD, in [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI oil futures draw a bullish inverted head and shoulders pattern

Posted on April 8, 2020 at 7:39 am GMT

WTI oil futures (May delivery) appear to be forming an inverted head and shoulders pattern in the four-hour timeframe in a possible signal for a positive trend reversal. In the latest upturn, the price failed to overcome its previous high of 28.45 and reversed south to build the right shoulder. The bullish cross between the 20- and 50-period simple moving averages (SMAs) is also encouraging for a trend improvement. A decisive rebound above the 29.00 level, where the formation’s neckline is standing, could indicate the start of [..]

Technical Analysis – Brent futures complete double bottom at 24.55; surpass SMAs

Posted on April 7, 2020 at 12:07 pm GMT

Brent has gained some of its positive momentum after the creation of a double bottom pattern at 24.55 on March 18 and on April 1. In the short-term the market could retain range-bound trading as the RSI is moving sideways above the 50 level and the MACD remains near the trigger line and above its zero line. Should the pair stretch north, the 35.38 level could provide immediate resistance before the price touches the area within the gap that posted [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold’s latest optimism looks to restart positive picture

Posted on April 6, 2020 at 7:41 am GMT

Gold’s fresh confidence is currently pushing off the 1,607 level – that being the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the down leg from 1,703.36 to 1,451 – following the recent positive sessions which commenced on April 1 from 1,566. Backing an improving near- and medium-term picture are all the inclining simple moving averages (SMAs) as well as the short-term technical indicators. The MACD has remained above zero and is expanding above its red trigger line, while the RSI is hovering above [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI futures retain bearish picture in long term

Posted on April 3, 2020 at 7:12 am GMT

WTI futures look to be mostly bearish after a descent rally from the 65.61 resistance on January, driving the commodity down to a multi-year trough of 19.32. In the preceding days, the price reversed slightly higher, touching the 20-day simple moving average (SMA). The short-term oscillators reflect a rise in the positive momentum. The MACD, in the negative area, has moved above its trigger line and is approaching the zero line. Additionally, the stochastics, which are moving towards the overbought [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold bulls to stay in charge until trendline breaks

Posted on April 2, 2020 at 8:01 am GMT

Gold found strong footing near 1,450 and the upper surface of the Ichimoku cloud on the weekly chart and reversed north again, retaining its bullish structure in the long-term picture. Currently, the price is eating a portion of the bold gains it earned last week and the RSI and the MACD are providing little hope of another rocky rally in the short-term as the indicators are lacking positive momentum. Still, the market seems to be well supported by the ascending trendline [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI futures flirt with short-term downtrend line after bounce off multi-year low

Posted on March 31, 2020 at 9:25 am GMT

WTI crude oil futures rebounded on the multi-year low of 19.25 on Monday, struggling beneath the 20- and 40-period simple moving averages (SMAs) and the Ichimoku cloud in the 4-hour chart. However, the RSI is pointing upwards in the negative territory, approaching the 50 level, while the stochastic is flirting with the overbought zone. Immediate resistance, in case of some gains above the near-term trend line, could come from the 20- and 40-period SMAs currently at 21.76 and 22.88 respectively. More upside pressure could drive the market [..]

Technical Analysis – Silver maintains negative signals after pullback

Posted on March 30, 2020 at 3:42 pm GMT

Silver reversed from an 11-year low of 11.62 and a key support region which includes the 150.0% Fibonacci extension of the up leg from 14.28 to 19.63 – where buyers pushed the price back up to the area of troughs from late 2018 and mid-2019. Despite this, the Ichimoku lines continue to reflect a bearish picture in the price action with a flattened blue Kijun-sen line and the red Tenkan-sen distancing itself below. Additionally, this is also starting to be [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold revisits Ichimoku cloud; flattens after strong bullish action

Posted on March 30, 2020 at 6:30 am GMT

Gold found a strong wall near the 1,644 resistance level as it created an aggressive bullish rally from the 1,454 support area. The price successfully jumped above the 20- and 40-day simple moving averages (SMAs) turning the MACD oscillator higher near its zero line as well. However, the stochastics completed a bearish crossover within its %K and %D lines in the overbought area, while the RSI is flattening slightly above the 50 level. Both are suggesting weak upside movement in [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI oil futures poise for another bearish session; completing descending triangle

Posted on March 27, 2020 at 8:35 am GMT

WTI oil futures for May delivery have been in quite a sideways trade since the plunge to an 18-year low of 20.50 last week on the four-hour chart. While a neutral trading is better than a negative one, in this case the market seems to be developing within an almost fulfilled bearish descending triangle that usually gets dissolved on the downside. In other words, technically, another sell-off seems to be a more likely outcome in the near future, as the [..]
