  • Silver Weekly Price Forecast – Silver holds steady for the week

    Silver Weekly Price Forecast – Silver holds steady for the week

    Silver markets went back and forth during the week, forming a bit of a neutral candle. This is a good sign though, because we are trying to form a bit of a base in the silver market. Ultimately, I believe that we will break out, but it’s going to take a bit of grinding sideways before doing so.

    Gold Weekly Price Forecast – Gold markets rally for the week

    Gold markets rallied a bit for the week, as we have cleared the recent consolidation and it now looks like the rally is going to continue. The $1250 level above looks to be rather resistive and perhaps a nice target for the time being.

  • EUR/USD Weekly Price Forecast – Euro looking for a bottom

    EUR/USD Weekly Price Forecast – Euro looking for a bottom

    The Euro is looking for a bottom on the longer-term charts, and as you can see on the accompanying chart, I have a yellow circle around the massive hammer underneath the 1.1450 level. That’s an area that I think continues to hold this market up, so this point I would expect a bit of a bounce.

  • EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for October 19, 2018
    FX Empireyesterday

    EUR/USD Mid-Session Technical Analysis for October 19, 2018

    Based on the early price action, the direction of the EUR/USD is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the main bottom at 1.1432. Holding above 1.1432 will indicate the presence of counter-trend buyers. If this can generate enough upside momentum then look for a rally into the resistance cluster at 1.1498 to 1.1502.

    Price of Gold Fundamental Daily Forecast – Gold Bulls Need the Dollar to Weaken, or Stocks to Plunge

    EUR/USD Price Forecast – EUR shows signs of weakness again on Thursday

    The Euro fell below the 1.15 level during the session on Thursday, as we continue to test this general area of the chart, as there seems to be a lot of support extending down to the 1.1450 level. It is because of this that it looks like we are trying to build up the confidence to finally go higher.

    AUD/USD Price Forecast – Australian dollar pulls back after initially rallying on Thursday

    The Australian dollar initially took off on Thursday, reaching the top of the recent consolidation area, but then turned right back around the show signs of weakness as the Americans stepped on board. It looks as if we are simply going to continue to consolidate in the short term.

  • Gold Price Prediction – Gold Moves Higher Despite Robust Jobs Data

    Gold Price Prediction – Gold Moves Higher Despite Robust Jobs Data

    Gold prices moved higher on Thursday as US yields whipsawed initially moving higher following a stronger than expected jobless claims report.  With claims close to a 59-year low, wages should begin to move higher which is why the Fed in its meeting minutes said that it was likely to move to restrictive monetary policy. With short-term policy still somewhat accommodative, its possible that short term rates rise to 3%, which is close where the 2-year yield is currently pricing. This could buoy the dollar and in turn put downward pressure on gold prices.  Despite this scenario, yields moved lower, paving the way for higher gold prices.
