The precious metal managed to break above the descending trend line the last couple of days but failed to overcome the 1248 (R12) barrier and moved lower towards the 1220 (S1) support level. Here both the descending trend line and the 50-period SMA as well as the 1220 level are providing significant support to the yellow metal. As it stands, I remain bullish on Gold, and as long as the precious metal remains above the 1220 (S1), I would expect the buyers to drive the battle higher towards the 1248 (R1) level.  A close above here would have suggested that the yellow metal had entered a new short uptrend.

The 50-period SMA is getting closer to the 200-period SMA, thus a bullish cross in the upcoming sessions may increase the possibility of establishing a new short- term uptrend.

WTI collapses below 95.00

Published in Commodites & Metals

The WTI collapsed the last couple of days, drilling through some significant support levels. The WTI is under selling pressure as the price failed to hold above the 50- and the 200-period SMA and at the moment it is approaching towards a crucial support level at 92.00 (S1). If yesterday’s selling pressure continues, I expect the price to challenge the ascending trend line and the 89.00 level. On the other hand, If the bulls manage to maintain oil above the support of 92.00 (S1), I would expect them to drive the battle higher and challenge the 94.00 level.

The MACD oscillator is trading below its zero line supporting the bearish scenario, while the ADX is sloping upwards above its 25 level, indicating the increasing momentum (downwards).

Gold jumps above 1220

Published in Commodites & Metals

The yellow metal is back trading above 1220 (S1) after dipping (spike) to as low as 1214 earlier this week. Gold moved higher above the descending trend line, as it also managed to break above the 50- and the 200-period SMA, reaching a new high this morning at 1248. Technically speaking it should continue moving upwards towards the 1269 (R1) level, after retesting the descending trend line

XAU/USD back to 1183

Published in Commodites & Metals

XAU/USD: The yellow metal is facing a selling pressure the last couple of weeks pushing it down away from the descending trend line, towards a key support level at 1183 (S1). From a technical standpoint, the precious metal is still looking bearish as it failed to form a higher top, having broken below the 1269 (R1) level. Therefore, a clear break below the 1183 (S1) hurdle, might drive the

WTI: The West Texas Intermediate has been moving in an uptrend since the beginning of December as the price managed to violate the descending trend line, moving above the 100.00 for first time in 2-months. If the buying pressure continues to push the WTI higher I expect the price to challenge the 102.90 (R1) resistance level.

The MACD oscillator is trading above its zero and its
