Gold Price Long-term Trend Analysis Forecast 2020

Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020 Feb 26, 2020 - 03:39 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Commodities

The gold bull market ended 2019 with a strong gain of 19%. The first half the year was marked with uncertainty as the price after an early year surge to $1350 gave up all of it's gains to drift lower to trade down on the year by early May. However, this was the calm before the bull market storm and that set the stage for a powerful bull run starting early June that saw the Gold price rocket higher to a early September peak of $1566, up over 25% on the year! Igniting Gold bug fever and encouraging prominent gold bugs to get carried away with headlines of Gold heading for $5000 and beyond.


However, the September high marked the start of a period of consolidation that just went on and on all the way into the end of November when off a $1446 low the Gold bull finally awoke with the price starting to trend higher once more, to end the year at $1520. With Gold rocketing to above the September high taking place early January when the drama queen in the White house launched his own rockets with the risks of igniting a new war in the Middle East, that luckily Iran proved incompetent at countering, including shooting down a passenger plane by mistake. This illustrates that we are living in an age of being ruled by MORONS! And whilst all this is going on the British media are wholly focused on just ONE story, MEGAN and HARRY tripe!

GOLD TREND ANALYSIS 2020

QE4EVER

The same money printing mega-trend drivers pushing stocks into the stratosphere are continuing to inflate all asset prices, precious metals and other commodities.

So continued upwards bias because as I've often iterated, once money printing starts it does not stop! However, markets usually tend to discount the future and so will have priced in future QE to some degree, so we may see a pause in the Gold bull trend after the recent surge to $1610.

US DOLLAR

Normally there tends to be an inverse relationship between the US Dollar and Gold. When the Dollar rises, the gold price tends to fall and visa versa.

The dollar has been drifting lower since peaking in September 2019 just shy of $99. Where my analysis at that time was to expect the USD to trend lower to 95.50. Overall there is not much to indicate that the USD is going to move out of a range of between 98 and 95 anytime soon. So expect a tight trading range for at the first half of 2020, which is overall neutral for Gold. Beyond which it may make a break lower to target 93 which would be bullish for Gold. So implies a quiet first half of 2020 for Gold, with the bull moves more likely during the second half of the year.

LONG-TERM TREND ANALYSIS

The long-term chart shows Gold retreating from it's first attempts to clear heavy resistance in the $1530 to $1630 area that I suspect will take significant effort to over come to then target $1800. So at least implies to expect several failed attempts to clear this resistance area before Gold can finally target a trend to $1800, so likely we are in for a period of consolidation.
