Gold Weekly Price Forecast – Gold markets looking for support

Gold markets spent the majority of the week falling but got a bit of a reprieve on Friday as Donald Trump suggested that interest rates in the United States should remain low, and perhaps rate hikes should be on hold. Of course, he doesn’t have that power so the market reacting the way it has on Friday is a bit of a head scratcher.

Gold weekly chart, July 23, 2018

We’ll markets initially fell during the week but found enough support near the $1215 level to turn around and form a candle that could be loosely translated as a hammer. That’s a good sign, and quite frankly the gold market is oversold so it would not surprise me at all to see a bit of a bounce. Beyond that, the US dollar has been a bit overbought, so we could have a bit of a “double whammy” coming. However, I think there’s even more significant demand closer to the $1200 level, so it makes sense to think that perhaps we could drift a little bit lower before seeing a true surge higher.

A break down below the $1200 level would be significant indeed, opening the door to the $1120 level for buyers to try to protect. Most of the move in this market is going to come down to what’s going on with the US dollar, which continues to strengthen. It’s not until other central banks around the world get their act together that we are going to see a longer-term move. However, there is one hell of an investment opportunity coming as gold will eventually turn around and go much higher. I believe that the “smart money” is starting to accumulate physical gold, and that the $1200 level should offer a bit of a “floor” in the market.
