    Fundamentals

    Last week there were no big changes in sentiment on gold market. Most fluctuations were due changes in value of USD on a background of US-Sino relations and rising worries on global political situation. Gold trading range was relatively narrow.

    As Reuters reports - Gold rose on Friday as a gloomy global economic outlook dented risk appetite, but a firm dollar stemmed bullion’s advance and kept the metal on track for its first weekly decline in three.

    “With equities a little lower here, we’re getting some flight to safety in gold,” said Bob Haberkorn, senior market strategist at RJO Futures.

    “The fact that the U.S. economy is not seeing weak data like the euro zone is supportive of the dollar. If the dollar was a little weaker today, gold would probably be up $7 or $8, instead of $3.”

    Stocks fell worldwide for a third straight day on worries about a global slowdown and the lack of any sign of a resolution to a U.S.-China trade row.

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he did not plan to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping before a March 1 deadline set by the world’s two largest economies for a deal.

    However, while bullion has risen about 13 percent from 1-1/2-year lows touched in August, mostly because of volatile stock markets and a dovish U.S. Federal Reserve, a strong dollar has driven gold down about 0.3 percent so far this week.

    The greenback held firm versus a basket of other currencies , on track for its best week in six months.

    Playing on investors’ minds, the European Commission cut its forecasts for euro zone economic growth, while in Washington a logjam continued over plans for a border wall with Mexico.

    Gold is considered a safe store of value during economic and political uncertainty.

    However, holdings in the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, the SPDR Gold Trust, have fallen more than 1 percent for the week.

    “We see no reason for the outflows in view of the falling stock markets and declining bond yields .... we believe gold should be in good demand as an attractive alternative investment and a safe haven, partly because there are after all numerous political risks,” Commerzbank said in a note.

    Indeed, if we take a look at SPDR holdings, we see gradual drop from almost 824 tonnes by the end of the January to current 802 tonnes. This week fund has lost 10 tonnes. This is not dramatic outflow, previously we saw significantly greater flows just in one week, but still, it could suggest that market a bit tired on upside action and purchasing power exhausts. upload_2019-2-10_14-39-26.
    Still, it doesn't mean reversal. Market needs just some rest to take a breath.

    COT data also shows that net long position has dropped a bit:

    This situation with long position on gold coincides with approaching to our major 1330 target, which also suggests retracement.
    Still, currently we treat this weakness as temporal effect. Global economy problems and political unrest are far from resolving and this provides support to gold market in a long term, as we've talked about it in our FX report yesterday.


    Technical
    Monthly


    This week action has little impact on large time frames, such as monthly.

    As we've said earlier, we're watching for our so called "symmetrical" model. As we've identified clear symmetry in market action, we have suggested that future action could be a reflection of previous downside action shape. Last week, market has moved more above the trend line, which was a crucial level for long-term technical picture.

    Gold shows good performance in December- January, which could lay the foundation of new long-term upside trend. We still keep our harmonic technical model on monthly chart as primary tool of analysis.

    Fundamental reasons for gold rising mostly relate to changing of global political and economical situation. Strong global shifts never could happen without big political events. This should provide big support to gold market. Now it is widely suggested that these processes should accelerate closer to 2020 year, or even in second half of 2019. For example, here is report by Fathom Consulting and their expectations to see world crisis around 2020.

    Here is explanation of our "symmetrical" model and scenario. Recent action on gold market reminds reverse H&S shape but very choppy and extended it time. Important COP target has been hit and upside action has started. In fact we have mirror action to the right and to the left from COP point. Market forms approximately equal lows on both sides. The speed is also similar. Is it possible that reversal is forming? Why not.

    On monthly chart we keep watching whether gold will be able to hold above trend line. Now price stands above YPP as well, but it has not been tested yet by price. So,as soon as any meaningful retracement will happen here - YPP could work as nearest destination point. For example, it could happen right after completion of our 1330 target.

    Weekly

    Trend stands bullish here, market is not at Overbought, at least on weekly chart. Here we do not need to make many comments. Gold has no fib levels ahead, just XOP target, which is coincides with MPR1 around 1330-1340 area.

    We suggest reaching of this target before any other action, such as retracement that we've mentioned above.
    gold_w_11_02_19.

    Daily

    So, on daily chart harmonic retracement is completed and market could jump right to 1330 target from current levels, or, as we've said, after re-testing of rectangle consolidation. Here we already see first signs of retracement - bearish divergence with MACD, but, as we've said we expect possible reversal only after completion of 1330 target.
    gold_d_11_02_19.

    Intraday

    Here in the beginning of the week we will keep an eye on "C" point. In our videos through the week we've mentioned possible AB=CD retracement as gold could re-test previous consolidation.

    But, on Friday market has turned up and has not completed OP target. If "C" point will be broken up, this action erases AB-CD pattern and could mean that upside action is re-established. In this case we appear in final leg to 1330.

    Conversely, with '222" Sell pattern on the back, downside action should lead gold to OP target. It means that if you're watching for long entry - wait for one of these two issues either "C" point upside breakout or drop to 1295-1300 support and AB-CD completion.

    Conclusion:

    As we're coming to major 1330 target and sentiment analysis shows that gold market a bit tired from unstoppable rally, retracement could be right around the corner.

    Greetings everybody,

    Let's take a look at gold market again. On daily nothing has changed. We still wait for 1330 XOP target completion. This should be important event for daily chart, as moderate retracement could start after.
    gold_d_12_02_19.

    But on intraday charts we have something discuss. On weekly report we said that if gold will fail to break through "C" top of our AB-CD pattern, then it keeps chances to complete AB=CD retracement at 1300 area.
    And this setup was completed - yesterday gold dropped based on "222" sell pattern that we've mentioned.
    Precisely speaking, reaching of AB-CD target could happen by 1H butterfly pattern:
    gold_1h_12_02_19.

    At the same time, we could get this price action:
    gold_4h_12_02_19.

    Which scenario to choose? Let's use the common sense. Market shows not quite normal price action for AB-CD pattern. CD leg was interrupted twice. First break provides us "222" sell pattern, but second break on the way down to OP looks irrational.
    This increases chances on immediate upside continuation right to 1330 target and ignoring of AB-CD 1300 target.

    Greetings everybody,

    Situation on gold market has not changed significantly. Today I think, we could update our long-term NZD setup. Yesterday was RBNZ rate decision. Although rate stands the same, comments by central bank was not as dovish as it was expected and this has given support to NZD.

    As a result, we could get another bullish grabber on weekly chart which support our long-term scenario. Our weekly target is 0.71:
    nzd_w_13_02_19.

    On daily chart target could be finalized by butterfly "Sell", which 1.27 extension coincides with AB=CD target:
    nzd_d_13_02_19.

    The question is only how reliable recent rally is and whether grabber indeed starts to work. As you remember, once COP has been completed - we were watching for H&S pattern here and AB-CD retracement down here. Despite strong jump - this pattern is still on the table. In current circumstances, we could watch for minor pullback and appearing of "222' Buy pattern, based on grabber's upside swing.
    If we will get it - then we could try to go long. Recent upside momentum is good and we should get the chance to move stops to breakeven. If somehow NZD still will turn down - then we return to H&S idea. It will not cancel weekly/daily setup:
    nzd_4h_13_02_19.

    Greetings everybody,

    So, while we wait for NZD bullish pattern, let's take a look what is going on gold market. Daily chart gives nothing new. Flat action is positive sign as market still stands aimed on XOP @1330 target. Yesterday reversal session has been formed. It is not as strong as when it forms at top, but still, it increases chances that gold still could re-test 1300 consoldation border:
    gold_d_14_02_19.

    On 4H, despite that upside breakout attempt has been done - it has failed and turned to typical W&R action. It means that gold could drift a bit lower, for example to COP target around the same 1300 area. So, it means that we need to wait for some better bullish signs before taking bet on 1330 action:
    gold_4h_14_02_19.

    Greetings everybody,

    Today gold looks a bit more suitable for starting upward action, compares to yesterday session. Daily chart mostly looks the same, the only new thing here is price tests the trendline:
    gold_d_15_02_19.

    But on intraday charts situation differs stronger. Our suggestion was correct and, indeed, gold has shown dive to complete COP target. At the same time, we've got bullish W&R and MACD divergence. Upward action after W&R looks also positive.
    Very important moment here is appearing of high wave (HW) pattern. It doesn't show the direction, but this is checkpoint, where the market checks wether this is correct direction or not. Upside breakout of HW pattern usually gives good confirmation of direction.
    Thus, it could be that gold already stands on the way to 1330 target:
    gold_4h_15_02_19.
