GOLD: establishing a higher base?
Information is not investment advice
The gold price has been rising since the middle of last week. Fueled by the US-China tensions, it comes to test the resistance of $1,750. This level marks the upper border of the channel in which the price has spent most of the last two months. Breaking it and eventually doing the same to $1,765 would mean that finally, gold is planning to establish a new baseline level. Will that happen this week? Very possibly. For that, let's watch the news and the response of the gold price around the mentioned key resistance levels.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
