Kinesis Gold Analysis
Things are changing quickly in financial markets and investors require nerves of steel. After creating a solid bullish set-up, gold experienced its worst day of the entire month, losing over $30.
From a technical point of view, it is not a tragedy, but bullion is - once again – back in the lateral channel between $1,790 and $1,820. We should point out that the precious metal has broken down the 200-day moving average (which is currently located at around $1,810).
The recent correction confirmed the importance of the $1,830 – 1,835 area, which is now the key level to surpass for starting a strong bullish movement, whereas a decline below $1,790 would represent a signal of weakness from both a technical and graphical point of view.
Indeed, the hawkish pressure from Northern European bankers is growing, as inflation is showing some recovery signals, which are also noticeable in Europe. Despite this, it does not seem too likely that Ms Lagarde will announce any changes in the bond purchases in tomorrow’s meeting.
Any hawkish statement from the ECB could push gold below the $1,790 mark, while a dovish ECB could lift up prices, giving new fuel to gold after the recent corrections.
Kinesis Silver Analysis
Silver recovery stopped sharply earlier this week. The precious metal was not able to surpass the resistance zone of $25 and the price declined to $24,4, following the weakness of gold and the rebound of the U.S. Dollar.
From a technical point of view, the positive trend is not compromised for definite, but it is now crucial that silver can hold above the dynamic and static resistance placed at $24.2 – 24,25. Analyzing the gold-silver ratio, we can see that in the last few days silver recovered, pulling down the ratio from 77 to 73.5 and confirming investors' growing interest in the grey metal.
