Trading Long on Gold (XAUUSD) & GBPUSD. Trading short on USDCAD.


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Technicals.

I’m Brad Alexander and on behalf of Valutrades let’s take a look today at Gold (XAUUSD), WTI (US Oil), GBPUSD, and USDCAD.


Yesterday we promised to take a look at USDCAD and with the increasing Crude prices and a weaker USD we see more room to the downside.Screenshot 2021-06-01 at 10.56.27

Price action is trying to break this symmetrical pennant and the Stochastic Oscillator is displaying lower highs which is a bearish signal, but watch out for support just above $1.20.

We have to zoom out to the weekly chart to see support from almost 4 years ago.

The inverse situation can be seen on GBPUSD where Pound strength and dollar weakness gave us resistance 3 1/2 years ago.

We mentioned increasing Crude Oil prices based on increased demand and we see on the WTI Daily Chart, price is back where it was exactly 2 months ago.Screenshot 2021-06-01 at 10.56.53

We will look for a break of resistance here but be aware that we might get a pullback first and, if you caught our video yesterday, OPEC + is meeting today so be careful.

Gold has kept climbing after it broke this double bottom many weeks ago.Screenshot 2021-06-01 at 10.57.03

We have a couple of key levels above including these 2 highs at $1950.
