Gold & Silver; Gold to Gallop higher in the year of Horse?
It is hardly ironic to have a roaring equity market on the back of what some would consider as a poor economic data. If we are to compare the current economic indicator with those of 2002 to 2007 then the equity market will need to readjust with severe retracement. We have been cautious on the rally as 2013 ended, as we deem those moment as euphoria buying. The general public (Tim, Dick and Harry) are all buying with a belief that they are expert in the equity trading industry - that anyone could have made a tidy sum. One real problem they have is that the fundamental and reality of the equity market is so distorted that they just do not care. A cold reminder that greed is the root of all evil and yet we are repeating the exact same clip over and over again - only this time the rich do get richer.
Gold Technical Outlook
Our commentary on 20th January made an important point that a close above $ 1253 will give gold a bullish edge to target $ 1276 (it hit $ 1276.58) before retracing back to find support at $ 1255 (as of the time of writing). As long as the demand is there, we could see a potential push to $ 1321 area if it managed to stay above $ 1228 in the next few days. Otherwise, the selling momentum will continue as gold trade in a downtrend line. As China breaks from holiday, gold will be vulnerable to selling in the next few weeks. It remain possible to reach as low as $ 1100 or beyond that at $ 1040. The weekly downtrend remains solid, with a rebound as an opportunity to sell further.
|Resistance: $ 1277, $ 1296, $ 1324 Support: $ 1227, $ 1200, $ 1180|
Traders Notes: Flat for now. Buy on the break of $ 1301 target $ 1324 (stop at $ 1291).
|Short Term (1 - 3 weeks)||Medium Term (1 - 3 months)||Long Term (6- 12 months)|
|Bearish $ 1110||Bullish - $ 1408||Target $ 1500 / $ 1600|
Silver Technical Outlook
Downtrend channel line remains intact and will continue to drive the prices lower for now. Only a break above $ 21.05 can spark further buying to retest resistance at $ 21.80, followed by $ 22.20.
|Resistance: $ 21.05, $ 21.40, $ 21.80 Support: $ 19.85, $19.35, $ 18.85|
Traders Notes: Flat
|Short Term (1 - 3 weeks)||Medium Term (1 - 3 months)||Long Term (6 - 12 months)|
