    Gold markets struggle at resistance again during the week

    Gold markets initially tried to break above the $1350 level during the week but rolled over to form a bit of a shooting star. However, I see there is more than enough support underneath that could continue to come into the market and singled higher.

    US dollar rallied against Japanese yen during hectic week

    The US dollar initially pulled back against the Japanese yen during the week but found enough bullish pressure to reach towards the top of the shooting star from the previous week. This is a very bullish sign, and we have a clear breakout point to watch.

    US dollar rallies against Canadian dollar during the week

    The US dollar fell as low as the 1.25 region during the week but bounced enough to show signs of life. On Friday, we guide a very negative outcome when it comes to the CPI numbers coming out of Canada, so this only exacerbated the upward momentum.

    The New Zealand dollar falls hard during week

    The New Zealand dollar has fallen rather hard during the week, reaching down towards the 0.72 handle. That’s an area that has been supportive in the past, but the fact that we are closing at the very bottom of the candle suggests that we could continue to see more bearish pressure. I think this next week is going to be crucial.

    The British pound initially tries to rally during the week, yet fails

    The British pound initially tried to rally against the US dollar during the week but found enough resistance above the 1.43 level to roll over and fall rather significantly. The 1.40 level of course will offer a bit of support, and I think that if we can break down below that level it’s likely that we will probably go looking towards the uptrend line underneath, and of course the sideways support at the 1.3650 level should also offer support.

    British pound falls against Japanese yen during the week

    The British pound initially tried to rally against the Japanese yen during the week, but found the upward momentum lacking, thereby rolling over and reaching towards the 151 handle during the Friday session. However, we have several support levels underneath that should give buyers some hope.

    Euro initially rallies, and then turns around during the week

    The EUR/USD pair initially rally during the week, testing the 1.24 level before rolling over rather significantly. The market remains in consolidation, so even though this is a negative candle, I don’t put too much into what we are seeing. In fact, I think that it is difficult for longer-term traders to be involved currently.

    Euro climbs against British pound during the week

    The Euro rallied significantly during the week, using the 0.8650 level as support. I believe that these markets have a significant amount of resistance at the 0.88 handle, so I think that although we’ve seen some strength, when I look at this chart I see a gradual drift lower.

    Australian dollar falls against US dollar, but has support just below

    The Australian dollar has fallen over the course of the week but is near a major support area that could come into play. We are closing out the week at the bottom of the range, so that of course is a negative sign, and sets up a very important week ahead.

    Gold falls during Friday trading

    Gold market participants sold during the Friday session, reaching down towards the $1335 level. I think that there is plenty of support below though, so it’s only a matter of time before we turn around and rally again. I believe that the $1350 level above is of course massive resistance.

    US dollar pulls back initially on Friday, only to find buyers again with higher interest rates

    The US dollar initially pulled back against the Japanese yen on Friday but found enough support near the 107.50 level to turn around and rally significantly. I think that the 108 level above is major, so paying attention to this market is crucial now.

    The New Zealand dollar falls during hectic Friday session

    The New Zealand dollar fell rather hard during the trading session on Friday, reaching down towards the 0.72 level, an area that is important on the longer-term charts. It’s interesting to see how this level has reacted, and as I record this we have seen a small bounce. However, if we break down below this level, that’s a very negative sign.

    The British pound continues to drift lower during Friday session

    The British pound continued to fall on Friday, reaching down towards the 1.40 level for support against the US dollar. This is partly due to Mark Carney suggesting that the Bank of England was a bit more dovish than people thought, and of course raising interest rates in the United States.

    British pound tries to find support against Japanese yen on Friday

    EUR/USD fall significantly during Friday session

    The EUR/USD pair has fallen rather significantly during the trading session on Friday as the United States interest rates continue to rise. I believe that breaking below the 1.23 level is a significant turn of events, and that we should continue to see downward pressures in the short term. However, I see a significant amount of support underneath.

    EUR/GBP choppy during difficult Friday session

    The EUR/GBP pair has been very choppy during the trading session on Friday as we are a bit confused. It’s not a huge surprise, as the market has seen a lot of headline risk coming out of both the European Union and the United Kingdom. However, this past week we have seen headline risk coming in a new form, the idea of the Bank of England being a bit more dovish than anticipated.

    Gold Drops as Dollar Gains Traction

    Gold prices moved lower sliding through support near the 10-day moving average which is now seen as resistance near 1,343.  Support is seen near an upward sloping trend line near 1,331. Momentum has turned negative as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) index generated a crossover sell signal. This occurs as the MACD line (the 12-day moving average minus the 26-day moving average) crosses below the MACD signal line (the 9-day moving average of the MACD line).
