Gold Rises To 1270; GBP/USD Inside Bar At Support

Gold prices moved to $1270 early today as noted in yesterday’s daily report. Price action in gold is likely to form a near-term top which could see a much-needed correction start. Meanwhile, GBP/USD forms an inside bar at support which could see a short term momentum led breakout to the upside.

EUR/USD Daily Analysis

EUR/USD 4-Hour Chart

EUR/USD (1.13): EUR/USD posted declines for 6 consecutive days with price closing at 1.1371 yesterday. However, the range (open/close) of the candlesticks has declined to indicate a lack of momentum. This could potentially signal a near-term correction to the upside. Resistance is seen near 1.1470 while a close below yesterday’s low at 1.1358 could signal further downside to 1.130. On the 4-hour chart, price action continues to consolidate near the support zone of 1.14 and 1.1380 and has formed a falling wedge pattern with a doji formed and the current 4-hour candlestick staying bullish. A bullish close here and preferably above the doji’s high of 1.1381 could signal an upside breakout. While 1.1470 remains a key level to watch, EUR/USD could rally to as high as 1.14975 to form a lower high.

USD/JPY Daily Analysis

USD/JPY 4-Hour Chart

USD/JPY (108.8): USD/JPY is currently bearish but price briefly opened higher. A bearish close today could signal a move to 107.955 – 107.70 support. Watch for a lower high in USDJPY which could signal a move to 111.0 in the near term. On th 4-hour chart, the hidden pergence is currently seeing prices falling lower after a brief test near 109.35 – 109.73 resistance. The downside is likely to be limited near 108 – 107.360, which could confirm the bottom being in place and could start a rally to the resistance of 109.73 – 109.35 and eventually to 111.0.

GBP/USD Daily Analysis

GBP/USD 4-Hour Chart

GBP/USD (1.44): GBP/USD formed an inside bar yesterday with prices closing bullish but within the Monday’s high and low range. The inside bar comes near the 1.4425 support, which marks the previous resistance level which snapped, sending GBP/USD towards April 28th higher close at 1.4673. An upside breakout here could see another rally, but it is very likely that GBP/USD will form a lower high indicative of a move to the downside unless the resistance zone of 1.4743 – 1.4635 is broken. On the 4-hour chart, a descending wedge pattern confirms this view with price moving higher above 1.4425. Initial resistance is seen at 1.4535, which could be the likely target. In the medium term, a higher low near 1.4535 – 1.4585 could see GBP/USD correct lower to 1.43 support.

Gold Daily Analysis

XAU/USD 4-Hour Chart

XAU/USD (1270): Gold prices formed a doji yesterday after Monday’s bearish declines. Price action is showing signs of fading momentum which could see a near term top being confirmed. As long as gold doesn’t break above $1300, we suspect that a correction to 1200 will be likely, provided gold can manage to break 1230 support. On the 4-hour chart, the falling median line is showing a correction to retest the broken support at 1273 – 1271. Establishing resistance here could confirm a move lower, but there is a risk of a break higher. In this case, gold could consolidate between 1291 – 1289 resistance and 1273 – 1271 support.
