Gold Price Forecast – November 19, 2020

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

The near-term outlook for gold remains bearish after holding resistance around $1898 and taking out the $1853.9 swing low today. The move down will likely be a grind for the interim, but the wave formations call for $1843. Settling below this will clear the way for $1825 and then the next major objective and probable stalling point at $1810.

Nonetheless, support around $1850 +/- $2 has been resilient since late September. The $1848.0 swing low held and today’s hammer suggests another test of resistance might take place first. Overcoming $1881 will call for key near-term resistance at $1900. Closing above $1900 would shift near-term odds in favor of $1920 and likely higher.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

The outlook for gold is bearish and the move down is still in a position to eventually reach $1814. This is the equal to (1.00) target of the primary wave down from $2089.2. The connection to $1814 is made through $1854 and $1841.

Nevertheless, today’s $1883.0 high fulfilled the smaller than (0.618) target of the wave up from $1848.0. Therefore, there is a reasonable chance for gold to reach the $1895 equal to (1.00) target before the decline continues. This is also in line with the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $1966.1 and the 21 percent retracement of the decline from $2089.2. For the move down to continue during the next few days $1895 must hold. Closing above this will call for a test of key near-term resistance at $1921. Settling above $1921 would reflect a bullish shift in near-term sentiment and call for another substantial test of resistance before the decline continues.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Gold rallied and settled above the 50-day moving average and the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $2089.2. This is bullish for the near-term outlook and reflects a positive shift in near-term sentiment. The move up is now poised to challenge $1963, $1979, and possibly $1999 during the next few days. The $1999 objective is most important because this is the 62 percent retracement and the larger than (1.618) target of the primary wave up from $1851.0.

With that said, the $1948 equal to (1.00) target of the same wave up from $1851.0 held on a closing basis today. Therefore, a test of support might take place before gold challenges $1963. Initial support at $1925 is today’s midpoint and is expected to hold. Key support is $1903, today’s open and the 50 percent retracement of the rise from $1851.0. Closing below $1903 during the next few days will shift odds back in favor of $1873 and lower.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Gold settled below the 100-day moving average for the second straight day and challenged the $1857 target as called for in yesterday’s update. This confluence point is split around the smaller than (0.618) target of the wave down from $1983.8, the 89 percent retracement of the rise from $1851.0, and the intermediate (1.382) and larger than (1.618) targets of the wave down from $1939.4. This may prove to be a temporary stalling point but fulfilling the $1857 objective is bearish for gold’s outlook.

Closing below $1857 will clear the way for $1841 and then the next major objective at $1810. The $1810 objective is the equal to (1.00) target of the primary wave down from $2089.2. Once met, another significant test of resistance is expected before gold falls any lower.

As stated, due to the confluence of $1857, a test of resistance might take place before falling to $1841 and lower. Resistance at $1893 is expected to hold and $1913 is key for the near-term. Settling above $1913, the smaller than target of the wave up from $1851.0, will shift near-term odds in favor of rising to the $1948 equal to target before the decline continues.This is a brief analysis for the next day or so.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Gold continues to trade erratically but retains a bearish outlook. Today’s failure to reach $1942 and the move below $1902, the smaller than (0.618) target of the wave down from $1939.4, has shifted near-term odds back in favor of testing $1882. This objective is key because taking out $1882 will clear the way for the next leg of the move down to challenge $1859, $1840, and eventually $1810.

Nonetheless, because gold overcame the smaller than targets of the waves up from $1851.0 and $1877.1, there is still a reasonable chance for a test of $1950 before the decline continues.

Should gold settle back above $1925 before taking out $1882 look for a test of $1950. The $1950 level is expected to hold. Closing above this would warn that a bullish reversal is underway and would significantly dampen odds for a continued decline.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

The outlook for gold remains bearish and the move up from $1877.1 is most likely corrective of the recent decline from $1927.0. Closing below $1879 will clear the way for $1855 and lower. Nonetheless, there is a modest chance for a larger test of resistance first, but $1908 is expected to hold.

Gold - $15 Kase Bar Chart
Gold – $15 Kase Bar Chart

Gold’s recent decline from $1927.0 stalled near the 62 percent retracement of the rise from $1851.0. The subsequent move up has been shallow and choppy and is most likely forming a bearish flag that is poised to break lower during the next day or so. Closing below $1879 will confirm that the move down is extending again and will call for $1855 and then $1842. The $1842 level is most important for the near-term because a close below this will clear the way for the next major objective at $1812.

With that said, the small waves up from $1877.1 suggest a test of $1908 might take place first. This is the 62 percent retracement of the decline from $1927.0 and is expected to hold. Closing above $1908 will call for $1924, the smaller than target of the wave up from $1851.0. This is a key threshold for the near-term because a close above $1924 will clear the way for $1942 and likely $1955.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

The near-term outlook for gold is bullish after settling above the $1851.0 double bottom’s $1911 target today. The move up is poised to reach $1938. This is the highest the wave up from $1851.0 projects and is in line with the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $2089.2. Gold will likely be hard-pressed to close above $1938 without a test of support first. Therefore, once $1938 is met odds for a significant test of resistance will rise to better than even. Nevertheless, closing above $1938 would warn that the move down from $2089.2 might be complete and would call for $1958 and higher.

Should gold turn lower before reaching $1938 look for initial support at $1892 and key near-term support at $1877. Closing below $1877 will shift odds back in favor of challenging $1851 and then $1840.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

The outlook for December COMEX gold is bearish after breaking lower out of a coil pattern last week and settling below a crucial $1888 objective on Wednesday. The sustained close below $1888, the smaller than (0.618) target of the primary wave down from $2089.2, calls for gold to reach the $1810 equal to (1.00) target in the coming days.

However, there is strong near-term support around $1843. This is the most confluent wave projection and is in line with the 38 percent retracement of the move up from $1458.8. Today’s formation of a hammer also suggests that a larger test of resistance might take place before the decline continues.

The $1888 level has become initial resistance and will likely hold. However, the increase in volatility during the past few days could help drive gold to challenge $1905. These are the completion and confirmation points for today’s hammer pattern, respectively. Settling above $1905 is doubtful but would dampen odds for a continued decline during the next few days and would shift near-term odds in favor of challenging $1930 and possibly $1954.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

The near-term outlook for gold is bearish after finally breaking lower out of a coil pattern and settling below the pattern’s lower trend line. Gold also settled below the 20-day moving average. The move down is now poised to reach at least $1929. This is the smaller than (0.618) target of the wave down from $2001.2 and connects to a key objective at $1892 as the equal to (1.00) target. The $1892 objective is also the smaller than target of the primary wave down from $2089.2. Settling below this would be quite bearish for the outlook in the coming weeks.

Nevertheless, a move up at the end of the day suggests gold might test the lower trend line of the coil before the decline continues. Tomorrow, this trend line will intersect with $1964 resistance and is expected to hold. Rising above this would call for another attempt at $1983, the smaller than target of the wave up from $1911.7. Settling above $1983 would imply that today’s move down was another false breakout and would clear the way for $2005 and likely higher.

Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook

Gold is trading in a narrowing range that forms a coil pattern. Coils are not exceptionally reliable patterns like flags and pennants when it comes to determining a breakout direction. However, they lean in favor of a breakout in the direction of the prior move before the coil formed, in this case, down. A breakout of the coil should take place during the next few days.

Coils reflect uncertainty, which makes this is a very tight near-term call for gold right now. Even so, odds continue to lean in favor of a break lower. Falling below $1936 will call for $1820. This is the smaller than target of the wave down from $2001.2. Settling below this will confirm a break lower out of the coil and call for a test of $1888 and likely lower.

Nevertheless, gold briefly broke the coil’s lower trend line on Tuesday, but since then has challenged the 62 percent retracement of the decline from $2001.2 and the smaller than (0.618) target of the wave up from $1908.4. Prices also settled above the 20-day moving average today. These factors suggest the coil’s upper trend line around $1988 might be challenged before another test of support. Also, the wave up from $1908.4 calls for a test of $2002. Settling above $2002 would confirm a break higher out of the coil and clear the way for $2023 and likely $2041.
