Information is not investment advice
In one of the recent articles, we tried to make a trajectory for the gold price based on the December chart. Well, we were wrong - that's how you reality-check your projections. Gold did not follow the upward channel similar to the one it was in December and got down to 1 845.
That means, the tactical support of 1 825 should be the baseline level for bears to aim at, and 1 875 is the key resistance so far. In the mid-term, a sideways dynamic seems to be the most probable scenario.
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.
