Valutrades Market Blast Technicals :: 17 December 2019


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Technicals where we will look at UK Oil (Brent), US Oil (WTI), GBPUSD, EURGBP, GBPAUD, Silver (XAGUSD) and Gold (XAUUSD).

Gold, on the daily chart, has been consolidating and we need to keep an eye on several factors including this symmetrical pennant.

However, price is currently at this key level of resistance and previous support so we need to see a break above or a bounce to the downside before determining direction.

Also, we see a “Bollinger Squeeze” which usually means that a big move is on the near future.

Speaking of metals, Silver on the daily chart could be forming a falling wedge so keep an eye on this upper trend line and the stochastic oscillator as we look for a reversal.

Yesterday we highlighted the price action gap in GBPUSD and all the Pound crosses and the market has “filled the gap”.

However, the gap on GBPAUD might be harder to fill so watch this lower trend line.

New traders often ask about the difference between UK Oil and US Oil.

The difference in price is about supply while, at this moment we see key Fibonacci levels of resistance; 50% in the case of UK Brent Crude and 61.8% in the case of US WTI so we need to see a break or a bounce before determining future direction.
