Micro Analysis

17 September, 2021

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

WEEKLY TREND: UP

Fundamental Overview:

  • GOLD PRICE ACTION: Gold fell on Thursday (September 16) by more than 2.00% or around 50 dollars to hit a session low of $1745 (its lowest rate in five weeks). The 14-Day Relative Strength Index (RSI) has fallen down close to its oversold threshold of 30, which could suggest limited downside potential, and possibility for upward recovery.
  • EVENT (WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 AT 19:00 GMT+1): FEDERAL RESERVE MEETING. Another delay of stimulus tapering announcement now expected. Inflation has continued to rise, moved up by high stimulus packages provided by the US Federal Reserve and the US Congress. Inflation rose 5.3% in August. Employment market, on the other hand, showed some weaknesses in August as Nonfarm Payroll data missed expectations by a large margin (235K vs. 750K exp.). FED DECISION JULY 28 (PREVIOUS MEETING): INTEREST RATE: Interest rate stay in the range between 0.00% and 0.25%. BOND PURCHASING PROGRAMME (120 billion dollars per month): For the moment they will keep buying the same amount.
  • ANALYSTS OPINION (GOLDMAN SACHS/CITIGROUP/WELLS FARGO/COMMERZBANK/ CREDIT SUISSE/ BANK OF AMERICA): GOLDMAN SACHS has a target price of $2000. CITIGROUP price target stands at 1950. WELLS FARGO sees Gold at $2100-$2200 in 2021. COMMERZBANK expected gold prices to return to $2000 by the end of the year. CREDIT SUISSE targets the area OF $1959-$1966, which rally could potentially extend to $2075. BANK OF AMERICA maintains an average price target of $1845 for 2021.

Technical Overview:

  • LONG TERM UPTREND: Despite the most recent sell-off, Gold still trades above its 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-Day RSI has fallen again below the level of 50, towards the oversold threshold of 30, which indicates that Gold can become oversold soon. When an instrument becomes oversold, it usually triggers upward movements due to bigger price attractiveness.
  • 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 1700.
