Micro Analysis

09 August, 2021

For General Information only. Not Intended to Provide Trading or Investment Advice. Your Capital is at Risk.


Fundamental Overview:

  • EVENT (AUGUST 11, WEDNESDAY AT 13:30 GMT+1) INFLATION (CPI) FOR JULY (EXPECTED: 5.3%): DATA IN JUNE CAME IN AT 5.40% vs. EXPECTED 4.9% (HIGHEST SINCE 2008). Inflation has continued to rise, moved up by high stimulus packages provided by the US Federal Reserve and the US Congress. A rising inflation usually increases demand for gold as the asset is traditionally considered a store of value, which tends to protect the purchasing power of people’s wealth amid higher inflation.
  • EVENT: JACKSON HOLE SYMPOSIUM (AUGUST 26- 28): The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City hosts dozens of central bankers, policymakers, academics and economists from around the world at its annual economic policy symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Symposium participants include prominent central bankers, finance ministers, academics, and financial market participants from around the world. The participants convene to discuss the economic issues, implications, and policy options pertaining to the symposium topic. The symposium proceedings include papers, commentary, and discussion. Fed Chair Jerome Powell will be expected to talk about the Fed policy (and the upcoming bond programme tapering) as well.

Technical Overview:

  • LONG TERM UPTREND: Despite the most recent sell- off, Gold managed to stay above it long term uptrend line. This could suggest an upward recovery as long as it stays above the uptrend (black) line.
  • 14-DAY RELATIVE STRENGTH INDEX (RSI): The 14-Week RSI has fallen below the oversold threshold of 30, which indicates that Gold has been oversold as of late. This, in turn, signals a potential upward correction is imminent.
  • RESISTANCE AND SUPPORT LEVELS: If Gold manages to stay above the uptrend line and speculators gather up to trade on 14- Day RSI oversold signal, then it could be expected the prices to start recovering, targeting Resistance 1 of 1800. If, however, the prices fail to uptrend line, then it could be expected Gold to continue falling and target Support 1 of 1665.
