    Price of Gold Fundamental Weekly Forecast – Plunge in Dollar Could Be Catalyst for Price Surge

    This week’s price action in gold will once again be dictated by the direction of the U.S. Dollar. While rising Treasury yields could boost the dollar, additional tweets or comments from President Trump on monetary policy or tariffs on China could limit the dollar’s gains or even drive it lower. This would be supportive for gold prices.

    Based on last week’s close at .7418, the direction of the AUD/USD this week will be determined by trader reaction to a pair of Gann angles at .7397 and .7430. The main trend is down according to the weekly swing chart.

  • S&P 500 Price Forecast – S&P 500 choppy to end the week

    S&P 500 Price Forecast – S&P 500 choppy to end the week

    The S&P 500 was very choppy in the week on Friday, reaching just above where we opened in the CFD market. As I record this, it looks as if the 2810 level is going to offer significant resistance. I think that resistance extends higher, so at this point I don’t think the market is quite ready to take off.

    Natural Gas Price Forecast – natural gas markets flat on Friday

    Natural gas markets were relatively flat on Friday, as we test the $2.78 level. It looks as if the market is ready to roll over a bit as we approached the 200 hour moving average. Beyond that, there seems to be a lot of supply in the neighborhood, and of course we are in a recent downturn.

    Gold Price Forecast – Gold markets rally after Trump comments

    Gold markets rally during the trading session on Friday, breaking towards the $1230 level before running into a bit of resistance. The market had been oversold to begin with, so when Donald Trump suggested that interest rates in America needed to stay lower, that sparked a US dollar selloff.

    EUR/USD Price Forecast – Euro explodes to the upside after Trump comments

    The EUR/USD pair was having a fairly quiet Friday, that was until President Donald Trump tweeted that the US dollar was being unfairly strengthened due to soft economic policy by the EU, Japan, and many other countries. Ultimately, I find this a bit ironic, considering that he doesn’t have the power to change monetary policy.

    Silver Price Forecast – Silver markets fall on Thursday as US dollar strengthens

    Silver markets fell during the trading session on Thursday, reaching down towards the $15.20 level. The level has caused a bit of a bounce, and it looks very likely that we may get a bit of a relief rally from here. If you’ve been following me here at FX Empire, you know that I recognize this is a zone of interest for longer-term “buy-and-hold” investors.
