Is it time to sell or buy gold?
Information is not investment advice
Gold dropped significantly yesterday, while analysts predicted $1 800. Were they wrong?
Reasons of gold rally
XAU/USD set a strong upward trend. It reached the 8-year high. Most economists predicted that the gold price would continue rising up to $1 800. Indeed, gold tends to increase amid the market uncertainty. And there are a lot of reasons to be hesitant now:
- the fresh resurgence of new coronavirus cases in the USA,
- US-China tensions,
- high unemployment,
- unsustainable economic recovery.
Investors usually pour money to safe-haven assets such as gold, USD and JPY in such dark times. However, the US dollar started to lose its safe-haven title. Its global dominance has waned as the USA is suffering from the virus outbreak. That’s why gold turned to the number one “emergency” asset. Nevertheless, successful Covid-19 vaccine tests from Pfizer and BioNtech improved the market sentiment. Therefore, yesterday gold bears became stronger and the price dropped. Traders started doubting whether it’s time to sell gold. Most analysts reassured that it’s not the time yet. According to Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Spartan Capital Securities: “gold is continuing to rise reaching new historic levels setting the stage for $2 000 gold sometime this year”.
All eyes on NFP
Traders widely await the US NFP report today. It will define the whole market sentiment and should have a huge impact on gold. If the data comes worse than expected, gold will surge, otherwise-drop. The report will be released at 15:30 MT time. Don’t miss out!
The long-term trend is bullish. It’s likely that it will stick to this trend. However, short-term contractions may take place on its way up. If NFP comes worse than the forecast, the price can break through the resistance at $1 780, and then it may surge further. In opposite, if NFP comes better than expected, gold may fall to the support at $1 760 and then $1 727. Follow the report and catch the market move!

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
