Gold eyes record high, ASX probes resistance: Asian Open

Gold took full advantage of lower yields on Friday to accelerate into its record high, leaving the question as to whether it can break above this key milestone or present us with a desirable pullback first. The ASX 200 is also considering a break above its 200-day MA.

Gold rose 10pct in 10 days, ASX 200 clings to support: Asian Open

Gold’s rally has been nothing short of impressive. But the fact its 10% rise stalled below $2000 with a bearish reversal candle on Friday suggest it may need to take a breather. Meanwhile, the ASX 200 clings to an important support level, which could open up a run for 6700 is broken.

Gold, ASX 200 analysis: Asian Open – 10/10/2023

Gold enjoyed its best day in five months as it sucked in safe-haven flows, and we see the potential for further gains from here (over the neat-term, at least). The ASX rallied for a third day, but how it reacts around 7,000 today could dictate sentiment for the week.

AUD/USD support caves as USD melt up continues: Asian Open 28/09/23

AUD/USD fell to its lowest level since November on Wednesday as it buckled under the strain of a stronger US dollar and yields. With key support levels showing the potential to act as resistance, a move down to 63c could now be on the cards.

ASX 200 analysis: Like it or not, it’s holding above 7k post CPI

WTI crude oil, ASX 200 analysis: Asian Open – 26/09/2023

Price action remains choppy on WTI crude oil's daily timeframe, which further backs up the case that last week's bearish reversal candle marked the beginning of a correction. The question now is how deep can it retrace before dip buyers seek to return in force? The ASX 200 has shown tentative signs of stability above 7,000, but given the bearish breakdown seen last week we prefer to seek bearish setups around resistance levels.

AUD/USD, ASX 200 headwinds to persist with ‘higher for longer’ Fed rates: Asian Open

At the most basic level the Fed delivered what was expected; another policy pause with the potential for further hikes. The opening paragraph tipped noted an economy which is “expanding at a solid pace” with a slower but “strong” job growth and elevated inflation. There’s nothing remotely dovish there. And then we look at the numbers…

Gold bulls reclaim key levels, ASX 200 pulls back to support: Asian Open

Gold provided a false break and recovery bac above its 200-day EMA last week, and Monday's trade saw gold find support back above its 200-day MA. The ASX 200 handed back around half of Friday's gains, although there's a reasonable chance it might be able to find support around 7200 given the 200-day EMA resides in the area.

USD/JPY bulls eye fresh highs: Asian Open – 22nd August 2023

USD/JPY bulls seem intent on goading the MOF and BOJ into verbal or actual intervention, as the market rises back to last week's multi-month high with rising yields supporting the move. The question now is whether we'll hear an increase of comments from officials if or when we break above last week's high. For now, USD/JPY looks as though it at least wants to retest it.
