Its been a long time since both Gold & Silver were receiving this much attention from traders and investors globally. Over the last few weeks we have witnessed a big shift on the longer term weekly charts that this current move is different from what we have seen over the last few years.
Gold finished the week at another 2019 high at $1,425, while also more importantly making a six year weekly high as well. The reason why I say that Gold has had a big shift is because we have recently seen on the weekly chart a break above a long six year sideways consolidation phase shown on the chart. It recently made a small retracement to retest the old resistance now support area of the consolidation phase, followed by a bounce higher off support.
In addition the 52 week moving average has now swung to the upside as the price action sits just above $1,415 support. Its possible we could see a move towards $1,480 resistance this week after we saw a retrace on Friday on the daily chart to a key support.
However its also important to note even though over the next several weeks & months that we could see the price at or above $1,564 resistance area based on the 52 weekly moving average range relative to price. I’m also expecting that we will encounter consolidation soon as well which could see either a pullback or sideways phase for a few weeks. Especially we hit $1,480 resistance before any consolidation.
Silver on the other hand has also had a big shift on the weekly chart even though its still lagging considerably relative to Gold’s recent price action. On the weekly chart Silver has had a big price move week breaching multiple resistance areas including the last previous weekly high area of $15.80-85, closing at just under the $16.20 resistance area after reaching a weekly high at the $16.60 which was also a key resistance.
Ideally this coming week it would be ideal to see another follow through of buying for the week and close above $16.20 resistance allowing it to consolidate the new higher high of this week. Given the past history of weekly potential price action moves away from the 52 week moving average, Silver has the ability over the coming weeks and months to move beyond $18.65 resistance.
Considering for Silver though its 52 week moving average has gone from sloping down to now flat, we could see a consolidation move coming soon as well allowing the 52 week moving average to swing to the upside and allow a breather before making its next big move higher. Given that we will have the FED FOMC meeting to decide rates at the end of the month of July, we could see a move higher for both Silver & Gold leading into the FED decision & sell the news / retrace after FOMC meeting.
