Soft inflation figures from Canada and a poll of economists backing a June Fed cut sent gold higher on Wednesday, as traders refreshed their dovish bets. Crude oil has also faltered once more at a key resistance area.

Gold remains in demand, but less so against the US dollar

Gold is currently down -1.8% in January, and I see further downside potential due to the growing case for a stronger US dollar. But that doesn’t mean gold will fall against everything by the same degree, if at all.

Gold forecast: Seasonals point to Jan gains, or did gold peak to soon?

January is usually a decent month for gold prices looking at this seasonality chart. But with gold rallying each month in Q4 and failing to hold onto gains above the prior record high, has it peaked too soon to expect another strong month?

Gold on a sec… gold just posted its highest monthly close on record

Gold just posted its highest monthly close on record, and now trades less than $40 from its record high set in May. With seasonality on its side, I suspect another crack at the record high could be in order. Although it does run the risk of a shakeout around the milestone level.

Gold glistens as the US dollar plunges (XAU/USD, DXY)

It seems the dollar correction is finally underway, with the US dollar index suffering its worst single day in one year. And it shows the potential for further losses, even if it has found support for now. Gold also shows the potential to have another crack at $2000.

Gold remains at the mercy of USD and bond yields: Asian Open – 27/09/2023

Gold prices suffered their worst day in 8 weeks on Tuesday with spot prices falling below the 200-day EMA and closing on the key $1900 level. But with gold lower against a basket of currencies, it shows gold is weaker and it's not just a case of a stronger USD or yields.

Gold may be lower against the dollar, but it’s holding up elsewhere

Despite competing with the strength of the dollar, gold has been trading higher against all other major currencies since its low in August. This could suggest that gold is acting as a safe haven, even if it is not immediately obvious from the XAU/USD chart.

USD/JPY, Gold, ASX 200 analysis: Asian Open – 17th August 2023

Hawkish FOMC minutes caught markets by surprise which saw US bond yields and the USD continue to rise and sending Wall Street lower for a second day. Whilst spot gold closed beneath 1900, futures have not - so perhaps support awaits). USD/JPY is soaring higher despite a warning from the MOF. And now the ASX reached my first bearish target, I’m now wondering if it can it reach for the second.

While the metal may well extend its drop in the short-term, my longer-term gold outlook remains positive. I therefore envisage a rise to a new record high soon.
