    Where will gold end up?

    The price of gold stopped just below $ 1,800 per ounce after Monday's growth. Now, some analysts are warning of a new sell-off if the level of $ 1800 turns out to be too strong resistance.

    After a sudden collapse at the beginning of last week, gold managed to recover well, and demand for it returned.

    Many people think about the geopolitical outbreak in Afghanistan after the Taliban seized the country after the recent withdrawal of American troops.

    Therefore, everyone is waiting for the speech of the Central Bank Governor Jerome Powell on Wednesday.

    Gold's movement to the level of $ 1,800 or higher will be important not only from a technical point of view but will also determine its future price direction.

    Another multinational investment bank is urging investors to abandon gold, predicting stronger economic growth and an appreciation of the US dollar next year.

    Dominic Schneider, Head of Commodities and Asia Pacific Foreign Exchange at UBS Global Wealth Management CIO Office, said that gold could decline to $ 1,600 per ounce, while silver could fall to $ 22 per ounce.

    However, not all analysts hold this opinion.

    Goldman Sachs still expects gold to hit $ 2,000 an ounce by the end of the year as demand for the yellow metal rebounds.

    According to Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA Europe, there are currently several supporting factors for gold, including a combination of a weak US dollar and low bond yields.

    Gold is also receiving additional price support from the growing demand of central banks for the precious metal, with Brazil and India being the latest to increase their official purchases of gold. This provided a counteraction to speculative pressure on the precious metal. In turn, gold prices recovered to the range of $ 1,780 per ounce, which could serve as a catalyst for additional coverage of short positions from trend followers.

    Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 18

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    Euro initially rose by 15 pips on Tuesday as traders managed to set up long positions, thanks to the signal to buy that appeared when the MACD line was at the oversold area.

    Then, immediately after that, the price turned around and provoked a sell signal, but traders had to ignore it since the indicator was far from zero.

    The reason why EUR / USD rose in the morning is the slight increase in EU employment levels. But by afternoon, the pair declined despite a sharp drop in US retail trade data. Euro even reached new local lows.

    And today, a report on EU inflation will be released, which will most likely provoke another decline in the market provided that the figure comes out the same or worse as expected. Then, in the afternoon, the Fed will publish its minutes of the meeting, which many expect to contain similar clauses as the last discussions.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1732 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1772. EUR / USD will climb higher if the Euro area publishes a better than expected inflation report. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.1708 and 1.1670, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area in order to bring about a market reversal to 1.1732 and 1.1772.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1708 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1670. A decline will occur in the event of poor data on UK inflation and strong Fed protocols. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.1732 and 1.1772, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area in order to provoke a market reversal to 1.1708.

    Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

    Pound fell by 25 pips yesterday as traders managed to set up short positions, thanks to the signal to sell that appeared when the MACD line was going down from zero. At the same time, there were no other market signals for the rest of the day.

    The weak employment data that UK released was the main reason for the decline, followed by the US retail trade report and statements from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. And most likely, this bearish sentiment will continue amid inflation statistics from UK. But if the indicator turns out to be better than expected, there may be an upward correction in the market. Then, in the afternoon, the Fed will publish its minutes of the meeting, which many expect to contain similar clauses as the last discussions.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3764 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3812 (thicker green line on the chart). GBP / USD will trade higher if UK reports strong statistics on inflation. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.3731 and 1.3684, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area in order to set off a market reversal to 1.3764 and 1.3812.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3731 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3684. A decline will occur if UK publishes weak inflationary indicators. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.3764 and 1.3812, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area in order to trigger a market reversal to 1.3731 and 1.3684.

    Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 19

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    Euro rose by 20 pips on Wednesday as traders managed to set up long positions, thanks to the signal to buy that appeared when the MACD line was at the oversold area. But in the afternoon, demand for dollar increased, as the Fed protocol said the members are considering an early tapering in order to prevent the economy from overheating.

    Today, there will be a report on the current account balance of ECB, which will not have a serious impact on the market if it does not diverge from the forecasts. Then, in the afternoon, US will release weekly data on jobless claims, which, if exceeds expectations, will put more pressure on EUR / USD.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1697 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1742. EUR / USD will climb higher if the Euro area publishes strong economic data. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.1665 and 1.1624, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area in order to bring about a market reversal to 1.1697 and 1.1742.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1665 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1624. A decline will occur if the Euro area releases weak economic indicators and US publishes a strong labor market report. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.1697 and 1.1742, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area in order to provoke a market reversal to 1.1665.

    Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

    GBP / USD declined by 20 pips yesterday because traders took short positions amid a signal to sell in the market, which came after the pair became oversold. Earlier, the market signal was to buy, but pound did not grow even though the MACD line was moving up from zero.

    The main reason for the slump was the weak data on UK inflation, followed by the Fed protocols that set off increased demand for dollar. Apparently, many members said the central bank may already cut measures in the coming months.

    Today, there are no UK statistics scheduled to be released, so the market will most likely focus on the reports from US. If the figures on jobless claims turn out better than expected, pressure on EUR / USD will intensify.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3741 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3812 (thicker green line on the chart). But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.3700 and 1.3638, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area in order to set off a market reversal to 1.3741 and 1.3812.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3700 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3638. GBP / USD will decline further if US releases a strong labor market data. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.3741 and 1.3812, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area in order to trigger a market reversal to 1.3700 and 1.3638.

    Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD and GBP/USD on August 20

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    EUR / USD declined by 20 and then 30 pips on Thursday as traders managed to set up short positions, thanks to the signals to sell that appeared when the MACD line was at the overbought area. The driver was the stable decrease in weekly US jobless claims, which provoked increased demand for dollar.

    Today, there will be a report on German PPI, but it is unlikely to help euro regain its lost positions. At most, the movement will be horizontal, unless dollar bulls close their positions this weekend.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1697 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1733. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.1675 and 1.1644, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1697 and 1.1733.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1675 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1644. A decline will occur if Germany releases a weak economic report. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.1697 and 1.1742, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1675.

    Analysis of transactions in the GBP / USD pair

    GBP / USD continued to decline yesterday even though there was a signal to buy that coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. This resulted in huge losses, especially since there were no other market signals for the rest of the day.

    The main reason for the slump was the continued decrease in weekly jobless claims. And today, this bearish sentiment may continue if the data on UK retail sales turn out bad. But in the afternoon, there may be a slight correction in the market, as dollar bulls may close their positions since it is already the end of the week.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when pound reaches 1.3645 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3688 (thicker green line on the chart). But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.3618 and 1.3583, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3645 and 1.3688.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when pound reaches 1.3618 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.3583. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.3645 and 1.3688, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.3618 and 1.3583.

    Hot forecast for EUR/USD on August 23, 2021

    The need for correction is not just long overdue, but has even already begun last Friday. However, the process is extremely slow. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that this is a corrective movement. The uncertainty of the single European currency is caused by business activity indices. The fact is that the preliminary assessment should show a decrease in all indices without exception. For example, the production index should fall from 62.8 points to 62.2 points. The index of business activity in the service sector may fall from 59.8 points to 59.4 points. So, the composite index should decrease from 60.2 points to 59.8 points. Thus, even a slight decline in the single European currency is quite possible during the European session. It will be small for the simple reason that the single European currency is already seriously oversold, which means that its downward movement is extremely limited.

    However, this does not mean that the correction is postponed indefinitely. American statistics are much more important, and it is precisely with these data that things will be much worse today than in the eurozone. And we are talking about the same preliminary estimates of business activity indices. Thus, the manufacturing index may decrease from 63.4 points to 63.0 points, while the index of business activity in the service sector from 59.9 points to 59.0 points. As a result of all this, the composite index should decrease from 59.9 points to 59.0 points. And due to the fact that American statistics have much more weight, the market will react to it noticeably more actively. Plus, the dollar is clearly overbought. This will be the final reason for the correction.

    After updating the local minimum of 2021, the EUR/USD pair slowed down its downward course. As a result, there was a corrective movement, which led to the return of the quote above the previously passed level of 1.1700.

    The RSI technical indicator confirms the correction move by crossing the 50 level from the bottom up.

    The daily trading chart shows a downward cycle from the beginning of June, the scale of which leads to a change of trading interests.

    Expectations and prospects:

    The corrective move returned the quote in the area of the Fibonacci line 23.6-1.1720, where the possibility of completing the existing movement is being considered. If there is no reduction in the volume of long positions in the area of this level, then the subsequent Fibo level is located around the 1.1760 mark.

    A comprehensive indicator analysis gives a buy signal based on the short-term period. At the same time, the intraday and medium-term periods signal a sale.

    Trading Signal for XAU/USD for August 24 - 25, 2021

    The daily chart of Gold shows that the metal is trading within a downtrend channel which has been extending since May 14. Now it would be close to start a trend change, but the price has triple resistance where the top of the channel, the 200 EMA and the 6/8 line of murray converge (1,812).

    The gold market opened the week higher and XAU / USD rose from the level of 1,781, breaking the symmetrical triangle pattern (see the chart). Until the closure of the bullish candle on Monday at 1,804, this pattern could sustain momentum, so gold could rise to the zone of 1,812.

    This bullish momentum of yesterday occurred due to the weakness of the USDX which fell from the high of 93.71 (8/8 of murray). This level was predicted by us as we had already indicated it in the previous analysis. Now we believe that the USDX could make a correction to the 61.8% of Fibonacci and it will enable a new bullish momentum of gold.

    But first, gold should also make a technical correction, since it is showing overbought signs, facing extreme resistance at 1,812.

    We believe that the zone between 1,812 and 1,806 represents strong resistance and gold could fall to the 5/8 murray line located at 1,781 because the 200 EMA is a strong barrier which could prevent a bullish rally.

    On the contrary, if Gold breaks the key level of 1,812, the price will be free for a new bullish stage. So, the price could reach the area between 1,843 and 1,875, the level of 8/8 murray.

    Our outlook for now remains bearish because we are confident in the price action patterns. We can also add the eagle indicator on 4-hour charts. As the indicator has reached the 95 level, this signals an imminent technical correction.

    The reasonable trading idea is to sell at any level below 1,812 with targets at 1,781 and towards the pivot point of 4/8 Murray at 1,750. The eagle technical indicator, that measures the volume and the strength of the market, shows a signal of an imminent correction in the next few hours.

    Trading tip for XAU/USD (Gold) for August 24 - 25, 2021

    Sell below 1,812 (triple resistance), with take profit at 1,795 and 1,781 (5/8), stop loss above 1,818.

    Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on August 25

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    Euro rose by 20 pips on Tuesday, thanks to the signal to buy that coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. Sadly, there was no further growth because the indicator was far away from zero in the afternoon.

    Surprisingly, the better-than-expected GDP data from Germany did not affect the market much yesterday. The speech of ECB member Isabel Schnabel was also practically ignored, as it did not concern monetary policy. But in the afternoon, euro's rally halted because of good data on US home sales.

    Most likely, the bullish move will continue provided that upcoming reports from Germany exceed expectations. But if the figures decline, EUR / USD will drop in price as well. Then, the scenario could escalate in the afternoon if US releases strong data on orders for durable goods.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1754 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1796. EUR / USD may climb higher if data from Germany exceeds expectations. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.1733 and 1.1693, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1754 and 1.1796.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1733 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1693. A decline will occur if Germany releases weak economic indicators and if the ECB takes a wait-and-see position on monetary policy. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.1754 and 1.1796, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1733.

    Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on August 26

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    Several market signals appeared in EUR / USD on Wednesday, but the first two had to be ignored because they came when the MACD line was far away from zero. Then, the next signal coincided with the indicator going to the overbought area, so traders were able to short euro by 20 pips. Following that was a signal to buy, which coincided with the MACD line being at the oversold area. This allowed traders to push the pair up also by 20 pips.

    Euro was under slight pressure because of the economic reports released yesterday. The data from IFO was just as expected, while other indicators were worse than the forecasts.

    There is a high chance that bearish pressure will continue today amid the ECB protocol and data on money supply. Reduced lending in the private sector could also provoke a decline, which may escalate if US releases a strong GDP report for the 2nd quarter. The speech of the Fed Chairman Jerome Powell at the Jackson Hole symposium will also be decisive to the EUR / USD pair.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1779 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1834. EUR / USD may climb higher if GDP data from France and the whole Euro area exceed expectations. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.1757 and 1.1708, but the MACD indicator line must be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1779 and 1.1834.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1757 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1708. A decline will occur if the Euro area releases weak economic indicators and if the ECB takes a wait-and-see position on monetary policy. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.1779 and 1.1834, but the MACD line must be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1757.

    Trading Signal for USD/CAD for August 26 - 27, 2021: Buy above 1.2573 (EMA 200)

    On August 20, the USD / CAD pair peaked at 1.2948, the highest level since December 2020. Since that day, the pair has been making a correction and has finally reached the 200 EMA zone located at 1.2573.

    In a few days, the loonie has strengthened by more than 350 pips. The rally of oil prices of more than 600 pips from the low of 62.00 has given strength to the USD / CAD pair. Now it could be in a zone of a probable technical rebound.

    Investors are cautious and prefer to stay on the sidelines ahead of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell's speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium.

    This event is an important factor for the currency market. So, it could be limiting the strength of the Canadian dollar, justifying some caution before positioning for any further movement.

    According to technical analysis, traders have the same sentiment on USD/CAD as we observe that the pair has found some support near the key support of the 200 EMA and has been bouncing above this level since yesterday.

    The 21 SMA located at 1.2658 is exerting some downward pressure. Therefore, a pullback towards this level will be a good opportunity to sell. A little higher is the 4/8 line of murray that has now become strong resistance.

    On the other hand, a break below 1.2573 (200 EMA) will open the possibility of a new bearish sequence that could reach the 2/8 murray support level located at 1.2451.

    The key point until Friday is to wait for a consolidation above the 200 EMA. Whenever there is a bounce at this level, it will be a good opportunity to buy with targets at 1.2695 and up to 1.2817.

    Buy above EMA 200 at 1.2573 with take profit at 1.2695 (4/8) and stop loss below 1.2538.

    Sell if the price makes a pullback 1.2695 (4/8) with take profit at 1.2630 and 1.2573 (3/8), stop loss above 1.2730.

    Analysis and trading recommendations for EUR/USD on August 27

    Analysis of transactions in the EUR / USD pair

    There was a signal to buy in EUR / USD in the morning, but traders had to ignore it because it came when the MACD line was at the overbought area. This resulted to euro dropping by another 20 pips, which, in turn, formed a signal to sell in the market. But since the MACD indicator was far away from zero, the pair did not go down much. Following that was another signal to buy, but it also did not result in a large movement.

    Obviously, the minutes of the July ECB meeting and data on money supply and lending did not affect the market much.

    And today, since there are no important macro statistics scheduled to be released, the market will most likely remain calm in the morning. But by afternoon Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will make a speech, which will be decisive to the EUR / USD pair. Data on German import price index and US income will most likely be ignored.

    For long positions:

    Open a long position when euro reaches 1.1770 (green line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1800 (thicker green line on the chart). EUR / USD trade upwards if the Federal Reserve does not hint on future policy changes. But before buying, make sure that the MACD line is above zero, or is starting to rise from it.

    It is also possible to buy at 1.1750 and 1.1708, but the MACD line should be in the oversold area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1770 and 1.1800.

    For short positions:

    Open a short position when euro reaches 1.1750 (red line on the chart), and then take profit at the level of 1.1708. A decline will occur if US releases strong economic reports and if the Fed indicates potential changes in the monetary policy. But before selling, make sure that the MACD line is below zero, or is starting to move down from it.

    It is also possible to sell at 1.1770 and 1.1800, but the MACD line should be in the overbought area, as only by that will the market reverse to 1.1750.
