Initial Timeframe: 1 February 2022 to 11 February 2022
Gold prices have recovered from a low of $1,780.60 touched late last week. The knee-jerk reaction that pushed prices lower following the Fed’s is now passed and sentiment is shifting toward the long side. The technical break above resistance of $1,800 bodes positively for gold. If prices can stay above this level the next stop could be $1,820.
Not much has changed since last week when prices were testing $1,850 before the Fed’s comments. The financial, economic, political, and health panorama continue to face problems. Inflation will not decline this month just because of some hawkish statements. It will take quarters of real monetary policy action combined with changes in supply and demand for goods and services in the real economy. In the interim, gold will be supported around current levels, trending toward the higher end.
