Gold outlook dimmed by stronger US data ahead of CPI and FOMC
It was a textbook reaction in gold in response to the stronger jobs and consumer sentiment data, with the metal falling, dollar and yields rising. It fell from around $2020 to a low so far of $2002. While down, it is certainly not out. It was only on Monday when it hit a new record high, albeit a short-lived one. Still, the downside could well be limited, especially if we see more evidence of waning inflationary pressures around the world.

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 on a sec… gold just posted its highest monthly close on record
Gold just posted its highest monthly close on record, and now trades less than $40 from its record high set in May. With seasonality on its side, I suspect another crack at the record high could be in order. Although it does run the risk of a shakeout around the milestone level.
AUD/USD, gold stall around key levels ahead of US inflation: Asian Open
The US PCE inflation report is arguably the event of the week, and with traders having vigorously sold the US dollar ahead of it I am left wondering if it is a case of ‘sell the rumour, buy the fact’ – especially if it comes on hot. And with AUD/USD and gold stalling around key levels on Wednesday, the potential for mean reversion seems apparent.
Gold needs plenty to go right to maintain its bullish momentum
Gold is knocking on the door of record highs heading into what has recently been an extremely strong period for bullion prices. But having rallied so hard since early October, it comes across as being priced for perfection near-term.
Gold analysis: Precious metals, stocks climb as yields and dollar drop

Gold falters around $2k, crude oil looks set for a pre-OPEC bounce: Asian Open
Gold has formed a double top around $2000 which leaves the potential for a pullback before its next leg higher. And crude oil shows the potential for a bounce towards $80 or $82 ahead of next week's OPEC meeting.
Gold’s probe above $2000 may determine its longer-term trajectory
With the US dollar index falling through its 200-day moving average while benchmark US bond yields remain contained, it should come as no surprise that gold has pushed back towards $2000 per ounce over the past few days.

Gold and silver analysis: Silver looks set to resume rally?
Gold and silver should remain supported on the dips amid peak interest rates narrative, with the latter likely to be more active given that we are in a positive market environment with stocks also rising.
Gold set to bounce? EUR/CHF looks ready to roll (over): European open
Today we look at a cheeky long setup on gold with its double bottom pattern at support, and an interesting setup on EUR/CHF which could appeal to bearish swing traders.
Gold glistens as the US dollar plunges (XAU/USD, DXY)
It seems the dollar correction is finally underway, with the US dollar index suffering its worst single day in one year. And it shows the potential for further losses, even if it has found support for now. Gold also shows the potential to have another crack at $2000.
Gold and silver analysis: US CPI sends dollar and yields sharply lower - Technical Tuesday
US inflation turned out to be weaker than expected on both the headline and core fronts, and the market’s response was a swift one.

EUR, AUD, CAD, WTI analysis: Commitment of traders report (COT)
Large speculators increased their gross-long exposure to AUD/USD futures by 17.1% and trimmed shorts by -2.9% on the day of the RBA’s last hike. And this could be a significant development when you consider net-short exposure recently hit a record level of bearishness just six weeks ago, yet prices defied bears with a sustainable break beneath 63c.
Gold vulnerable as upside risks for US yields build
US benchmark bond yields look like they may have bottomed in the near-term, an outcome that may generate additional headwinds for gold at time when it’s already struggling.
Gold analysis: Metal extends drop to test key support
Markets have been very quiet in the last couple of days, with the lack of any major data causing stocks to drift higher, extending their recent trend, while the dollar has drifted back higher following last week’s data-driven sell-off. As a result, gold and silver have weakened so far this week. But are we now going to see a recovery?
AUD/USD, gold: Reversal roadblocks loom as prices near key levels
AUD/USD and gold have struggled in November, giving back some of the gains achieved in late October. With both sitting near key levels, we look at the prospects for a bounce or extension of the pullback in the days ahead.
Gold analysis: Is silver about to outperform gold?
Precious metals prices have weakened over the last couple of weeks, following gold’s impressive +7% gains in October, and silver’s not-so-impressive 3% rise. Last month’s gains for gold were mostly driven by safe-haven demand as the flare up in the Middle East conflict saw investors rush out of risk-sensitive assets.
Gold falters around $2,000, although seasonality could be on its side
Gold enjoyed its best month in seven in October, with its 7.3% rise forming a clear bullish engulfing candle and was its third best month of the year. Whether it can extend its rally and make a run for a new record high remains to be seen, but we have seen gold failed around the $2075 highs three times since 2020. What would be so different this time?
