Gold & Silver Market Analysis for Thursday 2nd of September
Carlo Alberto De Casa
Kinesis Gold Analysis
The big rallying of gold seen in the last 15 days has found an obstacle with the key level of $1,820. Bullion is showing little volatility, while the price is still challenging this key resistance. In the current scenario gold has not yet found new fuel for continuing the recovery, even if the general set-up remains supportive. In other words, after the recent jump, the bullion price seems to have found a temporary equilibrium and new market drivers could be needed for further recoveries.
The list of elements which can trigger further rallies is quite various: first of all, any dovish statement from the Federal Reserve will most likely weaken the U.S. Dollar, pushing investors to increase their long positions on gold. Moreover, any corrections on stocks could cause a new jump on bullion price. On a separate note, geopolitical crises and any factor which can trigger a return to risk-off, could be another element supportive for the investment demand of the precious metal.
From a technical point of view, the first signal of weakness will arrive only with a decline of prices below $1,790. And vice versa gold could continue its lateral consolidation, seeking new market drivers surpassing the key level of $1,820.
Analyzing the macroeconomic calendar, we should also note that tomorrow afternoon there will be the release of the nonfarm payrolls. Any data below expectations could reduce pressure on the Federal Reserve for the beginning of tapering, while data above forecast can be seen as a confirmation of the start of tapering in Q4 2021.
Kinesis Silver Analysis
The volatility has slowed down also on the silver price, which is looking for new market drivers. Looking at the chart we should point out a crucial element: the graphical scenario is improving.
Silver is holding steady above the resistance zone of $24, as investors’ interest seems to be increasing. A jump above $24,32 – 24,35 would open space for further recoveries. On the fundamental side, the physical demand for silver is expected to increase in the next few months, thanks to the growing demand from the industrial sector.
