Fed QE3 talk will support technically strong gold

Daily Market Analysis (SHORT TERM) Monday 08/27/2012



COMEX Gold (December):

  • Short Term Trends are bullish.
  • Confirmation of a bottom with a range violation on 08/17/12 @ 1622.10. Confirmation of a bottom with a close violation on 08/20/12 @ 1623.00. Upside Targets = 1644.20 – 1657.20.
  • Inside compression day generated on Friday.
    • December Gold settled up a tick on Friday in a thin trading session as the market once again had its entire daily range above the daily Resistance Bollinger Band following its best weekly gain in nearly 3 months.
    • Gold should continue to advance higher this week amid speculation of new easing measures by the FED prompting inflation fears which should lead the precious metal higher to our Q3 target of 1721.90.
  • Projected Daily Range: 18.70
  • Projected Weekly Range: 42.10
  • Projected Monthly Range: 105.00




Euro FX (September):

  • Short Term Trends are bullish.
  • Confirmation of a bottom with a range violation on 08/14/2012 @ 1.2379. Confirmation of a bottom with a close violation on 08/21/2012 @ 1.2451. Upside Targets = 1.2623 – 1.2699.
  • C < LOHB (Close Below Low High Bar) generated on Friday. Possible confirmation of a top with a range violation @ 1.2482. Possible confirmation of a top with a close @ 1.2482 or lower.
    • The September Euro FX settled back lower on Friday after Thursday’s VRCB led to a round of volatility selling due to the Short Term overbought nature of the market.
    • Although the Euro has been the worst performing FX market of the year, it could see a big boost another 2 points higher after some modest selling early in the week to as high as 1.2797 over the next few weeks.
  • Projected Daily Range: .0089
  • Projected Weekly Range: .0211
  • Projected Monthly Range: .0601




E-Mini S&P (September):  

  • Short Term Trends are bullish.
  • Confirmation of a top with a range violation on 08/23/12 @ 1404.00. Confirmation of a top with a close violation on 08/23/12 @ 1400.00. Downside Targets = 1387.50 – 1375.50.
    • The September S&P’s rallied hard to end the week on Friday after generating new 9 session lows and barely avoided generating an OVB week.
    • Friday’s hard rally concluded a very choppy week of back and forth price action and while all signs point to technical failures looming ahead at such elevated pricing, the trends are still decisively bullish and this market could continue to move higher to 1446.00 before finally exhausting all the buying pressure.
  • Projected Daily Range: 15.75
  • Projected Weekly Range: 37.50
  • Projected Monthly Range: 95.75
