Gold price bounced yesterday as the US dollar weakened after the ECB’s president press conference. But the bounce was very weak relative to weakness in the greenback . Today’s NFP number will play a major role in what we should expect over the coming weeks for gold.
Gold continues to provide bullish divergence in the stochastic oscillator. The price remains below the Ichimoku cloud resistance of $1,070. Breaking above the cloud will open the way for a move towards at least $1,100. Technically, a bounce is justified at current levels both in the 4-hour chart and in the weekly chart.
Red lines – wedge
Blue lines – projection
Gold price remains near the lower boundaries of the wedge pattern that we have identified in the weekly chart. Stochastic is oversold, a bounce should come soon (maybe today) following the announcement of the US Non-Farm Payrolls. Yesterday’s weak bounce of gold was not a good sign, so bulls are likely to have the last chance today. Lower targets for gold to make a bottom are still open between $1,030-$900.
