Gold wakes up to morning star

Director / PIA First
United Kingdom
Instrument: XAUUSD
Price target: 1355
Market price: 1295

This week's positive price action in gold will complete a morning star formation if prices manage to maintain gains into the close. The previous week's bullish hammer has been followed by five solid days of gains and presents a bullish outlook in the short term.

Price action faces resistance around current levels ($1295-98) in the form of horizontal and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, however, daily momentum has turned positive and this should assist the reactionary move from the $1260 low.

A close above this previous reaction level and we should see further willing buyers entering long positions next week as the formation would then be confirmed.

The 4-hour chart has seen prices break the downward trend resistance this week and now looks support by the Ichimoku cloud.

Entry: Buy XAUUSD at current levels ($1295) & dip to $1275

Stop: Break of $1250

Target: $1335, $1355 and $1375

Time horizon: 2-4 Weeks

Hey Steve, can I get your thoughts on the Dax please? Its been stuck in this 50 point trading range for the last week. It's like watching paint drive. Possibly a big move in the making, in which direction I have no idea.

Hi Djustoe. I agree Dax seems to have had the life squeezed out of it! Our intraday daily technicals are looking to buy dips and this shows no signs of changing. There is an obvious temptation to fade or sell into the strong current action with a stop just above the 13000 level but i do not believe this will reap any reward and is going against short, medium and long term trend. The more medium term picture looks very bullish and the 3 charts attached clarify my thoughts. Weekly chart tells me the bullish channel has a fair way to go whilst we are still not at overbought extremes. Daily chart (x2|)shows bearish divergence and overbought conditions, so warns of a correction but this could continue for some time before the correction occurs! The longer term bulls would be looking to add fresh longs on bigger pullbacks. A break and close above the 13000 psychological level should lead to an aggressive (fast) extension higher towards 13325.

Good morning, yes this is a short/medium term view (2-4 weeks) and i am happy with reaction so far. Initial resistance expected near $1316-20 before $1335. Dips will attract at $1295 & $1275

Hello Steve, is the current drop in price to 1284 a dip or a change in trend? Do you still expect price to bounce back positively and go towards 1335?

I see this as a correction - looking to add at $1275
