Multi Time Frame Analysis
We did have a bounce while price action look set to consolidate within a potential broadening channel. Support remains the rising black coloured trend line and this is all lining up nicely for October FOMC meeting next week. A break higher is warranted if we get a hawkish Fed otherwise the dollar bull could continue to lose confidence.
“A short term rebound should be healthy here since inflation data came in as rather rate hike supportive.”
The uptrend continues but price action looks heavy here and we cannot help to suggest that a bigger sell off could transpire for a retest on the daily rising trend line. Swing traders may already have build positions here but only time will tell.
“There is more room for higher prices although we are starting to feel that a pullback is due.”
Dollar into consolidation mode and we have the Euro taking charge on a Tuesday morning – ahead of the ECB meeting. Price action is fast converging within the triangle pattern and potential play could see ab ABC correction.
“1.15 proves too much for the bull to take out but a corrective pullback is underway here. If we get an impulsive sell off, then it will put the latest bullish run into question. Ideally, the daily 100 and 200 ma should be the target of this pullback where we find strong support.”
Price action continue to ping pong as it remain in a cross road. Sellers arrived at 10200 levels and continue to pressure – building a strong layer of resistance. Only a break above will see a clear breakout for higher prices. The risk of going lower is there as many are seeing a potential double top with the 4 hour chart RSI diverging.
“Dax 4 hour chart seems to suggest a potential double top pattern but we need a break below 10000 to confirm that the top is in and for a pullback to retest previous low. Dax daily put in a bullish engulfing candle but it will need to break above previous high of 10188 to make its way higher.”
Price did break below 1170 but buyers are flocking in again here, providing short term support as it confluence with the 4 hourly 50 ma. Since the pullback is corrective, there is a possibility that a wave 5 could play out. Support for gold comes in at 1158 and 1148 if the pullback comes in deeper.
“We have a daily doji candle from yesterday close but we need a confirmation from today’s close with follow up selling to confirm a shift in sentiment. A break below 1170 may give the bears more rooms lower as the risk reward shifted. Only a break of previous high could assure more upside.”
No change in our commentary here. Daily chart has a diverging RSI that could well give early signal of a pullback. The steep buying and short covering process has certainly sparked many to forecast astronomical prices as they argued that silver is biding its time here. Price action will tell us the next move from here on.
