Gold Prices Decline With Dollar Up a Second Straight Session

Gold prices gave up an earlier climb to finish a bit lower on Tuesday, weighed down by a second straight session of gains for the U.S. dollar. Expectations for a slowdown in the pace of future rate increases by the U.S. Federal Reserve, however, helped cap losses for the metal. Gold for February delivery on Comex fell by $2.20, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,247.20 an ounce, down from an earlier high above $1,255. March silver rose 2.3 cents, or 0.2%, to $14.628 an ounce, recouping some of its...

Gold Prices Expected To Trend Higher In Quiet Holiday Week
Monday, 25 December 2017 19:11 WIB | GOLD CORNER |Gold OutlookGold Corner

U.S. dollar struggling to find momentum and last-minute tax selling in record-breaking equity markets could help push gold higher this week in what likely will be a quiet holiday trading period, according to some analysts.

Heading into the Christmas holiday weekend, gold futures have pushed to a more than two-week high. February gold futures last traded at $1,278.20 an ounce, up 1.6% since two weeks earlier. This is yellow metal™s second consecutive positive weekly close.

The rally in gold is also helping to push silver prices up, with this metal also trading at a two-week high. March silver futures last traded at $16.44 an ounce, up more than 2% since two weeks earlier.

Looking ahead to this week, many analysts are bullish on gold as the U.S. dollar could continue to struggle heading into the new year. The U.S. dollar index is down almost 10% this year in what has been the worst year for the currency in more than a decade.

œThe U.S. dollar didn™t see much of a rally on the tax vote and I don™t think that bodes well for 2018, said Bill Baruch, president of Blue Line Futures. œI think we will see the dollar push lower in the new year and that will be good for gold.

While Baruch is bullish on gold in the near term, he added that he doesn™t know if it™s a great buy at these levels. He said the time to buy was following last week™s Federal Reserve monetary policy decision.

œWe were kind of looking for a pullback this past week as a good entry point, but that didn™t happen. I think gold is still at a good level as I am confident prices will be higher in three weeks but I just wouldn™t chase this market, he said.

Colin Cieszynski, chief market strategist at The Fundamental Technician, said that he agreed that investors shouldn™t try to chase the market, as technically the price is in the middle of a new trading range.

œI think you could nibble at gold at these levels, but I definitely wouldn™t want to chase this market, he said.

Not only is gold benefiting from a struggling U.S. dollar, but Cieszynski added that gold is seeing reduced headwinds from a collapse in Bitcoin, which is currently down more than 20% on the day. He added that further weakness in the cryptocurrency could help gold prices push higher this week.

œGold is in the middle of a range between $1,240 and $1,300, and I think prices could go higher as we are seeing solid accumulation, he said.

David Madden, market analyst at CMC Markets, said that while he is not expecting to see major moves in gold this week, he sees prices modestly higher as equities could fall as investors take profits ahead of the new year.

Investors have until Dec. 29 to close out any winning trade for a realized profit for the year. These gains would be subject to capital gains taxes in the new year. Along with taking profits, investors have also been closing out their losing positions, which is called tax-loss selling, as they are able to use these losses to balance out any strong gains, according to tax professionals.

œI think weaker equities this week will be positive for gold prices as the market is in a positive uptrend since last week™s [Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting], he said. ˜Buying following the Fed meeting has been a good strategy the last few years and I think we can see that trend continue. I think we could see gold test $1,300 an ounce in early January.

Madden added that markets aren™t expecting the first rate hike of 2018 to come until March, which means that gold has room to move higher in the this few months. He added that there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding monetary policy this year as there are still several vacant seats that need to be filled at the central bank.

œIt™s hard to know what to expect from the Fed when we don™t know who the new members will be, he said.

CME 30-Day Fed fund futures are pricing in a more than 50% chance of a rate hike by March.

For Madden, the key level to watch in gold is the 200-day moving average, which comes in at $1,277.70 an ounce. He added that if that is broken, investors could expect to see a push to $1,300 an ounce.

Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said that he sees $1,280 an ounce as a key resistance point to watch in the near term.

Analysts are also watching $1,290 an ounce as they say this is a key retracement level from the July lows to the September highs.

The only major data to be released this week is the December consumer confidence report from the U.S. Conference Board.
