Q4 2019 Gold Forecast and Top Trading Opportunities

US-China Trade Talks the Next Risk Event - Will Gold Benefit?

Risk markets are marginally positive in early turnover ahead of this week’s US-China trade talks in Washington. The 15-month battle has started to inflict economic damage on a global scale and any breakthrough would be welcome, although the latest move by US President Trump may have stymied any progress before it happens. The US yesterday added 28 Chinese organizations to its blacklist – blocking these companies from buying US goods - over concerns that China is violating the human rights of Muslim minorities in Xinjiang. While Trump may be publicly saying that the US and China will do a big deal, it is likely that his latest move will just add fuel to the long-running trade war saga.

The daily gold chart continues to show a negative set-up with a recent series of lower highs and lower lows highlighting bearish momentum. The spot gold price is now also below the 20- and 50-day moving average yet is propped up by the 200-day ma much lower down. Recent price action around $1,490 - $1,495/oz. is being tested with a supportive band between $1,482/oz. and $1,485/oz. before 23.6% Fibonacci retracement comes into play at $1,463.5/oz.

To the upside a strong break back above $1,495/oz. should see momentum building towards $1,520/oz. with moving average resistance seen at $1,502/oz. and $1,510/oz. A close above $1,520/oz. will break the series of lower highs and add some bullish impetus into the space.
