Investing.com - Gold prices will remain susceptible to any further gains in the dollar this week after declines on Friday on the back of a stronger greenback which was boosted by expectations for a more aggressive pace of policy tightening by the Federal Reserve this year.
This week, gold prices are expected to remain especially sensitive to the U.S. Dollar and Treasury yields as long as the geopolitical events remain under control.
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.
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.
Investing.com – Gold prices remained on course to snap a two-week winning streak as safe-haven demand faded amid easing geopolitical concerns, while continued dollar strength added to downside momentum.
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).
High U.S. Treasury yields contributed to the rise in the dollar all week. U.S 2-Year Treasury yields reached 2.453 percent on Friday, the highest level since September 2008 as the two-year’s spread versus two-year German Bunds grew to 302 basis points, the widest in more than three decades.
