Gold Price Futures (GC) Technical Analysis – May 31, 2019 Forecast

Comex Gold

Gold futures are trading sharply higher with the rally being fueled by a slightly weaker U.S. Dollar, lower demand for risk, and another plunge in Treasury yields. Gold traders are increasing bets on a Fed rate cut later in the year.

On Thursday, a report from the U.S. Commerce Department showed lower inflation during the first quarter. This likely puts a rate cut on the Fed’s radar. Today’s Core PCE Price Index report could solidify the rate cut if it comes in at 0.2% or lower. In fact, weaker than expected personal spending or personal income data today should also be supportive for gold prices.

At 12:21 GMT, August Comex gold is trading $1303.80, up $11.40 or +0.88%.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over $1304.10 will indicate the presence of buyers. The next target is the 50% level at $1304.50. Overtaking this level should trigger a rally into the next resistance area at $1307.10 to $1307.70. The latter is the trigger point for an acceleration into $1310.10, $1311.80 and a downtrending Gann angle at $1312.20.

The trigger point for an acceleration to the upside is $1312.20. Potential targets are $1320.70 and $1332.60.

Basically, buyers are going to have to take out $1304.50 to $1311.80 to extend this rally.
