Gold Ascending Triangle Breakout – Brace for a Sell Trade

Gold - XAU/USD Chart

GOLD, Today, during the Asian trading session, the yellow metal price failed to halt its losing streak of the previous-day, drawing further offers below the $1,800 mark. However, the strong rebound of the US Treasury yields and record equities has played a significant role in undermining the GOLD prices. The firmer US dollar was seen as another factor that kept the gold prices under pressure. This can be attributed to the inverse relationship between gold and the dollar.

Apart from this, the upbeat market mood has diminished the safe-haven demand, which makes the gold prices even weaker. The risk sentiment got some lift right after the US released surprisingly positive jobless claims data. In addition to this, the discussions over how close the US Senate is to announcing the much-awaited infrastructure spending plan added further optimism to the market trading sentiment.

In contrast, the multi-day high in coronavirus figures from the US, China and Australia, keeps challenging the market trading sentiment. This may help to limit deeper losses in the bullion prices. Gold is trading at 1,799.60 and consolidating in the range between 1,799.19 and 1,804.88.

Upbeat US Data & US Senate Updates

Despite the ever-increasing coronavirus numbers from the US, China and Australia; the market trading sentiment was able to extend its positive performance of the previous day. remaining well bid on the day. Be it chatter over the announcement of the much-awaited infrastructure spending plan. which is expected to be released by the US Senate soon or the previously released upbeat US data; everything seems in favor of the market risk sentiment.

On the data front, the ADP non-farm employment change was at 330,000 in July; the services purchasing managers’ index (PMI) was 59.9. the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) non-manufacturing employment was at 53.8. and the ISM non-manufacturing PMI was at 64.1. Meanwhile; investors also cheered a decline in US initial jobless claims; with 385,000 claims having been submitted during the past week.

Thus, the risk-on mood and the firmer USD will keep GOLD under pressure, ahead of the key US employment data due to be released. However, any disappointment generated by the jobs report could reverse the latest losses in gold.


The Bullish US Dollar & the Gold Price

Despite the somewhat brighter market mood, the broad-based US dollar managed to pick up positive traction; remaining well bid ahead of the US jobs report. The data could see the US tighten its monetary policy earlier than Europe and Japan. where the prospect remains distant. Previous comments by US Federal Reserve Vice Chair; Richard Clarida, stating that conditions for an interest rate hike could be met in late 2022; led to a closer focus on the recovery of the labor market from the COVID-19 disaster.

Meanwhile, the previously released positive US data boosted the prices of the greenback, with the upticks in the US dollar keeping the bullion prices under pressure, as the price of gold is inversely related to the price of the US dollar.

The multi-day high in coronavirus figures from the US, China and Australia keep challenging the market mood. which may support the prices of the safe-haven metal, gold. As per the latest report, the number of COVID infections in the US has risen to a 6-month high; while China has recorded the highest daily rise in the number of coronavirus cases during the current outbreak. Besides this, Australia’s daily COVID numbers have also hit the highest levels since August 2020. with the national total being around 307, according to the latest information.

Looking ahead, the market traders will keep their eyes on the US economic docket. which highlights the release of key US jobs reports due for publishing on the day. Meanwhile, the preliminary figures of Japan’s Leading Economic Index for June; expected to come in at 102.7 against 102.6 prior; may be seen as key catalysts to offer near-term direction to the market trading mood.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!
