GOLD: Clearly clouded chart picture! 🔴 The current gold analysis on 06/04/23 🔴 Chart analysis, weekly outlook and trading setups

ABSTRACT: Not much has changed in the overall interpretation of the daily chart for gold. As long as the precious metal is trading below the SMA20 at the end of the day, it could continue down. Overall, the pullbacks could run into the SMA200 area (currently at $1,836.0). In our opinion, there is only a perspective on the upside when gold has not only moved above the SMA20, but also above the SMA50 and, above all, has established itself.

Gold chart check – viewing in the daily / 4h chart:


Gold chart analysis daily on 06/04/2023 - forecast

The daily chart shows that gold has gradually given way after it had formatted the high for the year. It tumbled below both the SMA20 (currently at $1,980.6) and the SMA50 (currently at $1,991.1) that the precious metal has established below as it sells off. At the end of the last trading week, the upper but of the last two daily candles went to the SMA20 again. From here the focus was down again.

Not much has changed in the overall interpretation of the daily chart. As long as the precious metal is trading below the SMA20 at the end of the day, it could continue down. Overall, the pullbacks could run into the SMA200 area (currently at $1,836.0).

In our opinion, there is only a perspective on the upside when gold has not only moved above the SMA20, but also above the SMA50 and, above all, has established itself. If this move succeeds, there are chances that it could revisit the $2,000/$20 area on further upside momentum.

  • Classification of higher-level chart image, forecast (daily chart): neutral

Consideration in the 4h chart:

Gold forecast for the new trading week on June 4th, 2023 - day trading

The 4-hour chart shows that gold initially struggled to push above the SMA50 (currently at $1,958.3). After a pullback to the SMA20 (currently at $1.95846), the move was successful. What failed was to establish itself above the SMA20. At the end of the week it not only went below the SMA20, but also below the SMA50.

With this move at the end of the week, the chart picture has clouded over significantly. As long as gold does not succeed in pushing itself back above the SMA50 or subsequently also above the SMA20 and fixing it, further losses could occur. Run-up areas could be $1,920/$17 and then $1,890/$85 area.

Should the precious metal be able to re-establish itself above the SMA20, there is the prospect of starting the SMA200 (currently at $1,990.0). However, it remains to be seen whether this average line will also be overcome. The chart shows that this line could be a tough one.

  • Classification short-term chart image, forecast (4 hours): bearish / neutral

Conclusion: As long as gold closes below the 20-day moving average, the losses could widen. Only if the precious metal manages to establish itself above the 50-day moving average again at the end of the day would further recoveries be conceivable and possible

  • Probability of bull scenario based on our setup: 40%
  • Probability of a bear scenario based on our setup: 60%

Gold – assessment for the coming trading week:

Long Setups: Gold may initially attempt to hold above $1,948.5. If successful, it could continue higher towards our next targets at 1949.4, 1951.1, 1954.0, 1956.8, 1958.4, 1959.2 and then 1961.7. dollars go. Above $1,961.7, our next targets would be 1,963.5, 1,965.7, 1,967.9, 1,969.2, 1,970.6, 1,972.3, 1,974.3, 1,977 .1, found at $1,979.2 and $1,981.8, respectively.

Below $1,938.7, it could continue down towards our next targets at 1,936.0, at 1,934.4, at 1,932.1, at 1,930.3, at 1,928.4, at 1,926.1, at 1,923, at 9, at $1,921.5, at $1,917.7, at $1,915.4, and at $1,913.3, respectively.
