Daily Gold Market Report

Gold rises calmly – Analysis - 08-08-2017
Gold price opens today's trading with calm positivity to move away gradually from the key support 1254.56, which keeps our bullish overview valid as it is until now, and the price needs to breach the resistance barrier formed by the EMA50 at 1261.00 to be released from the negative pressure and rally upwards towards our positive targets that start at 1295.37 and extend to 1312.00. Therefore, the bullish trend scenario will remain valid and active in the upcoming sessions, supported by stochastic positivity, noting that breaking 1254.56 will put the price under negative pressure that targets visiting 1229.32 initially before any new positive attempt. Expected trading range for today is between 1250.00 support and 1275.00 resistance. Expected trend for today: Bullish

Gold and Silver Demand would go Ballistic if People understand the need to Buy it Now

The Bigger the Base, the Greater the Upside Case. This saying among technical analysts/chartists helps define where we are today in gold and silver – and where we’ll soon be headed. It means that when prices “base” in a relatively narrow sideways range for an extended period, they will at some point break out. Before the action gets underway, bears and bulls alike will get “sandpapered” as they take positions, trying to guess whether or not the price is getting ready to decline further or move upward into a new bull phase.


Silver has rebounded since hitting a 2017 low earlier in July. Silver is now above its 20 DMA, a sign of positive momentum, although below its 200 DMA is resistance that could be tough to overcome.

Resistance on the yellow metal is seen near the June highs at 1,296.
