The Prospects of Gold’s Next Upswing

Commodities / Gold & Silver 2019 Nov 26, 2019 - 03:23 PM GMT

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Commodities

The USD Index rallied on Friday, and gold responded with an intraday decline – that’s normal. What’s not necessarily normal is the size of the daily change in gold compared to the size of USD’s rally.


USD Index Bounces Higher

Namely, gold futures ended Friday’s session exactly where they had closed on Thursday. There was no daily change in gold, even though it – theoretically – should have declined given USD’s upswing. What does it mean? Gold’s resilience means that gold has probably not finished its short-term upswing yet.

The general rule for any market is that if it doesn’t move in the way it “should” move given what’s going on in the world, it means that – for whatever reason – it’s not the direction in which the market is going to move next. This trading technique doesn’t specify what is the reason for a given market’s strength. The point is to detect and acknowledge this strength, and then to combine this information with other trading signals.

One of the biggest benefits of this approach is its widespread application. Knowing what is likely to move a given market and what kind of reaction would be normal, means that it can be applied – regardless of what the market is. It also applies to various terms, if one takes into consideration the likely time in which the effect of a given development “should” be in place. For instance, in case of long-term investment, one should pay attention to how the market reacts to the factors that matter in this time horizon, for instance demographics and shifts in supply & demand picture. In case of day trading, it’s a matter of checking if a given individual piece of news (or price action from a key influencing market) causes a price move that seems natural. The bigger the divergence from what would be viewed as normal, the stronger the bullish or bearish signal becomes.

Moving back to the USD-gold picture, we previously wrote that the USD Index is quite likely to consolidate before rallying strongly and it seems that this consolidation is still taking place. The USDX didn’t break to new November highs and Friday’s rally is in tune with how the U.S. currency performed in case of previous consolidations that we marked in green.

Back and forth movement was common, and sometimes it took form of a day-to-day swings, and sometimes (such as in July and October), it meant two bottoms. There are no indications that would make Friday’s upswing look any different than what we saw in October and July and thus it seems that we could easily see yet another downswing (perhaps to the recent lows) before the rally really picks up.

And what would gold be likely to do in such an environment? It would likely rally more visibly than it rallied recently – similarly to how it performed in the final parts of previous USDX consolidations. Despite today’s few-dollar pre-market downswing, it seems that the top is not yet in and that gold will move higher shortly.

But what about the short-term, what else can we say about our long position opened right after the November 12 reversal? Apart from outlining the take-profit targets, the full version of this analysis dives into the lessons from the short-term precious metals’ moves. It’s an invaluable tool in planning when and where to profitably switch market sides – similar to what we have successfully done with the preceding short position.
