Technical Analysis – Gold stays within tentative descending channel

Posted on November 18, 2019 at 8:27 am GMT

Gold recouped a small portion of its losses last week to close slightly positive after finding support at 1,445 and near the bottom of a tentative descending channel. Despite the rebound, the price remained slightly below its 20- and 50-simple moving averages (SMAs) that maintain a bearish cross and under the Ichimoku cloud. Meanwhile in momentum indicators, signals are also discouraging as the RSI was unable to return above its 50 neutral mark and the MACD held stable below its red signal [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI oil futures resume uptrend but shift sideways as momentum dries

Posted on November 12, 2019 at 10:08 am GMT

WTI oil futures are trading around the 57.11 area, which is the 50.0% Fibonacci retracement of the down wave from 63.22 to 50.98, with an undecided direction in hand. Oil has realigned with the positive picture, climbing above 56.90 but then adopted a range (55.66 – 57.83) in the last week, something also viewed in all the Ichimoku lines as they have converged. The short-term oscillators suggest that directional momentum has disappeared but lean towards a positive outlook. The MACD [..]

Technical Analysis – Palladium futures’ correction looks to test 50-day moving average

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 3:30 pm GMT

Palladium futures’ sharp pullback suggests that negative sentiment may be increasing, as it approaches the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), presently at 1660. Noteworthy, is the easing in the 20-day SMA’s slope, which could be the spark for the negative scenario. The bearish picture follows a three-month ascent, which commenced on August 2 from the 1376 level. The short-term oscillators confirm that negative momentum is increasing. The MACD has distanced itself below its red trigger line in the positive zone, [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold looking neutral-to-bearish, support structure may disagree

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 10:18 am GMT

Gold rebounds off the support structure of 1459 – 1453 with buyers trying to push higher. The yellow metal deflected off the resistance structure of 1514 – 1520 last week and dropped underneath all simple moving averages (SMAs) and slightly below the 1459 trough of October 1. Furthermore, the downward slopes in the SMAs lean towards a negative outlook. Yet, the short-term oscillators suggest that negative momentum is starting to weaken. The MACD, deep in the negative region, has just [..]

Technical Analysis – Silver turns bearish with bears pushing for further declines

Posted on November 8, 2019 at 2:29 pm GMT

Silver looks to be shifting to a bearish bias as it moves below the swing low of 16.85 from August 19. The commodity’s bearish state seems to be backed by the downward slopes in the Ichimoku lines and the 20- and 40-day simple moving averages (SMAs), with the 40-day SMA nearing a bearish cross of the 100-day one. Furthermore, the technical indicators reflect strong negative momentum in place, with the RSI currently in oversold territories, while the MACD is accelerating [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold approaches the upper boundary of a range

Posted on November 4, 2019 at 8:22 am GMT

Gold has remained confined in a narrow sideways range – with an upper bound near 1517 and a lower end around 1474 – for a month now. The short-term bias is therefore neutral, something also supported by the converging 50- and 200-period simple moving averages (SMAs) on the 4-hour chart. A clear break on either side of this range is required to set the near-term direction. Taking a look at momentum oscillators though, they paint a slightly bullish picture, suggesting [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold halts further losses, hovers around 23.6% Fibonacci

Posted on October 30, 2019 at 7:46 am GMT

GOLD has stalled around 1488, which is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the up leg from 1266.20 to 1556.92. The precious metal seems to be skewed towards a short-term negative outlook after the price reversed back down from 1517 levels and below the simple moving averages (SMAs) but is expected to remain within its trading range. The short-term oscillators suggest a pause in the negative directional momentum. The MACD is below its red trigger line in the negative zone, but [..]

Technical Analysis – WTI oil futures cautiously positive; pullback steers price below 200-SMA

Posted on October 29, 2019 at 3:54 pm GMT

WTI oil futures are leaning towards a positive short-term picture despite penetrating back below the 200-period simple moving average (SMA). The short-term oscillators are confirming a neutral-to-positive outlook unfolding, with the price now breaking back above the 200-period SMA. The RSI’s negative momentum is easing, heading higher in the bearish territory to the neutral mark. The MACD, despite having fallen below its red trigger line, holds above the zero line. However, the Kijun-sen and 200-period SMA are adopting a horizontal [..]

Technical Analysis – Gold looks to be forming a triangle after a neutral week

Posted on October 21, 2019 at 7:37 am GMT

Gold continued to trade along the downward-sloping trend-line following the negative breakout of an ascending channel, despite closing neutral last week. Traders may maintain neutral behavior in the short-term according to the flattening RSI and MACD, probably keeping the market below the descending trend-line as the bearish crossover between the 20- and 50-day simple moving averages suggests. However, questions are rising about whether the bears are strong enough to violate the new support line drawn from May’s troughs that  looks [..]

Technical Analysis – Palladium futures at fresh record highs; could keep uptrend in short-term

Posted on October 17, 2019 at 1:20 pm GMT

Palladium futures for December delivery are stretching a long-run uptrend within a narrowing channel, with the market printing a new record high of 1,747 on Thursday. The RSI hints overbought conditions as the indicator seems to be softening above 70, a sign that downside corrections may emerge. Despite that, the triple exponential average oscillator (TRIX), which looks to be reversing north again, suggests that the price may keep the upward direction in the short-term. Moving higher, the bulls would aim for the [..]
