Gold Technical Analysis: Bearish Outside Bar Reversal Favors Drops

Treasury yields decline as investors eye trade tensions. While the stock market remains worried with concerns of a drop or recession.

West Palm Beach, United States - August 21, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Alphabetastock.com report: Gold closed well below $1,504 on Monday, validating the bearish outside bar candlestick pattern created on Friday.

A bearish outside bar candle occurs when the price action for a specific day falls outside the high and low of the preceding day. That candlestick is widely considered a sign of indecision in the market place.

However, in Gold’s case, that pattern indicated bullish exhaustion. After all, the outside bar appeared following a near 90-degree rise from $1,400 to $1,535.

Traders usually wait for confirmation of bearish reversal, preferably in the form a close below the outside bar’s low.

As noted earlier, Gold found acceptance below $1,504 (outside bar’s low) on Monday, confirming a short-term bullish-to-bearish trend change.

Supporting the case for a drop to the immediate support of $1,480 (Aug. 13 low) is the impending bearish crossover on the moving average convergence.

The bearish case would be invalidated if prices rise above Monday’s high of $1,513. As of writing, the zero-yielding safe-haven metal is trading largely unchanged on the day at $1,495 per Oz.

Forex today was more favourable for risk-FX on, yet again, mixed trade headlines where on one hand, Trump said he wasn’t ready to do a deal with China yet the US confirmed a 90-day extension to US tech companies’ business with Huawei. Additionally, Germany and the US are contemplating fiscal stimulus.

While central banks are likely to be the next key focus with the Jackson Hole coming up as well as the FOMC minutes as well as the Reserve Bank of Australia’s today, geopolitics remains in the driving seat and volatility can be expected to continue. Economic contingency plans from Germany and talk of one from the White House which could be triggered in the event of a recession sounds good on paper but will unlikely to pair off the risks of a protracted trade war and desperate measures from central banks reacting to deteriorating economic activity.

The data was light, although the DXY got a boost from Boston Fed President Rosengren who dissented against the rate cut in July, advocating for the Fed to pause at this stage, bullish on the US economy and showing little concern for overseas doom and gloom. In turn, US 2-year Treasury yields climbed from 1.50% to 1.55% while the 10-year yield rose from 1.58% to 1.61%. Still, markets expect a rate cut as soon as September.

Sánchez blanks Braves, Nationals salvage series finale 7-0

Sep 16, 2019

WASHINGTON — Aníbal Sánchez has seen enough in 14 years in the majors to know when his team needs a lift. He provided one Sunday, pitching seven sharp innings to help the Washington Nationals prevent a three-game sweep and beat the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves 7-0. "I think that's what we needed right now," Sánchez said. "I think every game we win right now is really important for us." Washington manager Dave Martinez left in the middle of the game.

Own goal, Lodeiro's brace lift Sounders past Red Bulls, 4-2

Sep 16, 2019

SEATTLE — A shot by Victor Rodriguez that was knocked in for an own goal in the 83rd minute put the Seattle Sounders ahead, and Nico Lodeiro's goal in stoppage time secured a 4-2 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.

Sep 16, 2019

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — This time, Wade Miley stared down first-inning adversity.

Vázquez homers twice, drives in 5, Red Sox beat Phillies

Sep 16, 2019

PHILADELPHIA — A little lunchtime wisdom served Christian Vázquez well. Vázquez homered twice, including his first career grand slam, and drove in a career-high five runs to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. The Red Sox catcher had gone without a homer for 13 straight games and had just one in 25 contests entering Sunday. He was stuck on 19 homers and trying to reach 20 — probably trying too hard. Over lunch on Thursday with manager Alex Cora and former big league slugger Carlos Delgado, Vázquez listened as the two...
