Gold Price Trend Forecast Summer 2019

Countertrend Rallies in Dollar, Euro, Stocks, Silver, Gold, and VIX May Be Over

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010 Nov 19, 2010 - 03:39 AM GMT

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe countertrend rallies in the U.S. dollar (UUP), euro (FXE), stocks (SPY), silver (SLV), gold (GLD), and the VIX (VXX) may be relatively short-lived. On November 10th, we stated, “The odds of short-to-intermediate-term reversals are elevated for numerous markets”. From their recent lows to their recent highs, the VIX rallied 29% and the U.S. dollar gained 5%. From their recent highs to their recent lows, gold dropped 6.6%, silver fell 14.6%, the S&P 500 lost 4.4%, and the emerging markets index gave back 7.3%. These all qualify as ample corrections within ongoing trends. Given the developments in Ireland, and more importantly the initial bullish response by the markets, we need to be open to the reemergence of the “risk on” trade.


From Bloomberg:

Ireland may ask for a fund amounting to "tens of billions" of euros to rescue its banks to shore up the nation’s finances after talks with European Union and International Monetary Fund conclude. "If these talks were to result in a substantial contingency capital funding" pool that didn’t need to be drawn down, that "would be a very desirable outcome," Finance Minister Brian Lenihan said in the Irish parliament in Dublin today. He said no agreement has yet been reached. (Full Story).

On November 17th, we mentioned that 1,178 represented a possible level of support on the S&P 500. The market closed right on 1,178 on Wednesday, which means we open on Thursday from a logical rally point.

Before we show some evidence supporting a possible resumption of the acceptance of risk by market participants, let’s examine some simple ways to monitor the short-term battle between the bulls and the bears. If gold can close today in a bullish manner and take care of the four items outlined below, the odds of the recent bullish trends resuming in stocks, including emerging markets (EEM), and commodities (DBC) will have increased. From a bullish perspective, we would like to see the gold ETF (symbol GLD) finish up on strong volume; say, better than 32 million shares – the higher the volume the better. A low volume up day would be much less convincing.

Four bullish signals to watch for on the daily chart of gold: (1) RSI back above 50, (2) close above orange trendline, (3) MACD Histogram to “tick up”, (4) Rate of Change (ROC) to move back above zero. As of Wednesday’s close none of the four had occurred yet. If we get all four at the close on Thursday, it is bullish short-term for the price of gold, as well as for stocks and commodities in general.

The rally in the U.S. dollar may be over, or at a minimum ready to take a break. As of Wednesday’s close, the weekly chart below shows no significant bullish divergences that would lead us to believe the recent rally in the dollar was anything other than a normal countertrend rally. Notice the thin blue dotted line below may provide resistance. Rate of Change (ROC) is shown at the bottom of the chart; it has not yet given a longer-term bullish signal for the dollar. We need to keep an eye on the dollar - trendlines show some possible uncertainty over the next few weeks.

The weekly chart of the euro supports the possibility of the resumption of the rally and higher highs after the current correction has run its course. Notice the thin blue trendline may stem the recent decline in the euro. Like the dollar, the euro’s trendlines tell us to remain vigilant and open-minded over the next few weeks. If divergences appear on a weekly chart, it would be concerning.

The weekly chart of the VIX does have a bearish MACD Histogram divergence with price, which supports the possibility of a lower low in the VIX. The Rate of Change indicator (bottom of chart) has not given a bullish signal, which also, as of Wednesday’s close, supports further VIX weakness.

Traders often watch Fibonacci retracement levels; so it pays to keep these in your back pocket. The basic concept is all markets have natural ebb and flow where “giving back” some gains is a normal part of any healthy market. Retracements bring new buying interest and allow markets to move higher. Silver and gold both have retracements levels close by that may spark interest from traders. The retracement in silver is relative to the recent move from point A to point B (see below).

There are no bearish divergences on the weekly chart of silver, which supports the resumption of the uptrend after the current correction. Gold and silver, as well as most risk assets, are now at a point where their risk-reward ratios are much more favorable than they were a week ago.

Like silver, gold has a retracement level and price support in the neighborhood. We need to watch the daily charts today for buy signals.

Gold’s weekly chart also supports a resumption of the uptrend, but relative to silver, gold is not as impressive.

Just as the elements were in place for countertrend rallies in stocks, dollar, euro, gold, silver, and the VIX on November 10th, the elements are now in place for a possible resumption of the primary trends. Volume and breadth can help us read the conviction of any market moves on Thursday. Any gains need to be held into today’s close. Markets will open higher; so the majority of today’s gains cannot be captured. However, further gains seem probable if we see what we want to see over the next few days. As always, keeping an open mind and paying attention to what is happening, rather than what we think will happen, is extremely important. We need to see short-term buy signals. If we have time, we may post some updates during the day on Short Takes.

Your market views are flipping more often then a coin.

Your S&P 1178 bottom call - You called virtually every level between 1178 and 1065, a totally unconvincing call.
