Gold just broke below an important technical level that may indicate another steep drop ahead.



Gold May Be On The Verge Of A Waterfall-Style Decline
Gold May Be On The Verge Of A Waterfall-Style Decline

Now that gold broke below its support level, another sharp decline – including what I call a “waterfall-style decline” – is looking increasingly likely. I suspect that another wave of selling may commence when the Asian precious metals trading session starts in a few hours from now (it’s Thursday afternoon in New York as I write this). If I was planning to short gold, I would make sure that I have a stop-loss order in place to exit the trade.

UK Q3 GDP Expands 0.8% As Estimated

The British economy expanded 0.8 percent quarter-on-quarter in the third quarter, unrevised from the second estimate published on November 27, the Office for National Statistics said in the latest estimates released on Friday.

However, the statistical agency slightly revised up the GDP figure for the second quarter to show a 0.8 percent expansion compared with the previously reported 0.7 percent growth.

The GDP expanded 1.9 percent year-on-year in the third quarter, the ONS said. This was up from 1.5 percent growth reported in the second estimate.

  • AUD/USD fell to its lowest level in over three years on Thursday
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the Aussie while below .8960
  • A Gann level related to the year’s high at .8800 is key support with a daily close below needed to prolong the decline
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen early next week
  • Traction over .8960 will turn us positive on the Aussie

Gold broke and closed below the key 1219 level on Thursday. This move eliminated the positive cyclicality from December 2nd. Given the rather tepid advance off that low we suspected the key pivot would get tested. Focus is now on the year’s low at 1180 ahead of major support near 1155. As for cycles, there is little in the way of turn windows until the end of the month when a Gann 90-day “death cycle” will open the door to a potential reversal. Only a move through the 2x1 Gann angle line of the August high at 1253 would signal the metal has bottomed earlier than expected.

Bonds in 2013 finally got their comeuppance. After a long, pleasing ride of income + price gains, the bond market decided the party was over. It only took four months for the 10-year U.S. Treasury note to drop the equivalent of over five years? interest. All but the shortest maturities suffered similar fates.

1. The bond market is the premiere measure of what’s to come
2. The Fed’s effect on longer yields is over and done
3. Economic measures across the board are strong and trending upwards
4. Bondholders now have added protection as a result of the Great Recession and financial stress
5. The steeper yield curve provides added return potential and safety

USDJPY Weekly Technical Analysis (based on dailyfx article)


USDJPY has broken higher from a 6 month triangle. The triangle from the May top probably composes a 4th wave with the current rally composing a 5th wave (Elliott). The implications are that another correction/decline takes hold after wave 5 is complete.

Based on common wave relationships, an objective for wave 5 is 61.8% of waves 1 through 3 at 111.19. This is near the August 2008 high of 110.65. A 100% extension of wave 4 yields 113.68. An extended wave 5 (blowoff) could see the 100% extension of waves 1 through 3 at 121.95 (not far from the 2007 high at 124.13). In other words, there is plenty of upside.

Trading Strategy: I am long with a 102.60 stop. A level that may induce a pullback (or failure) is the uncovered close from October 2008 at 105.30. Know that there are long term trendlines in play over the next few months as well

Technical analysis for GOLD :

Gold Sheds Nearly 3% on Fed Taper- Bearish Tone Set for 2014 Open

========


Gold was off sharply on the week with the precious metal plummeting more than 2.8% to trade at $1203 ahead of the New York close on Friday. Despite the magnitude of the weekly loss, bullion is set to close well off the lows of the week at 1187. Regardless, the metal is now set to post its first yearly decline in thirteen years and its largest yearly decline in 32 years. As the Fed begins to throttle down from its ultra-accommodative monetary policy stance, the outlook remains heavy heading into 2014.
