XAU/USD: levels to trade
Information is not investment advice
XAU/USD ran into the resistance of the 50-day MA in the 1,481.65 area. The further obstacle on the upside is at 1,487.00 (the 100-day MA, the downtrend line connecting September and November highs).
On the H4, the price is below the 200-period MA at 1,477.25 – the nearest resistance. The decline below the recent lows at 1,471 will open the way down to 1,466 (100-period MA on the H4). Notice that gold is trading within a medium-term downtrend, so selling is much more favorable than buying. Still, there’s some space until the price hits resistance line, so cautious longs are possible above 1,478 targeting 1,481.50 and then, if there’s a daily close above this point, 1,487.
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.
