Gold prices remain under pressure, but it's a different story than last week as a weaker U.S. dollar is not lifting the yellow metal. Looking at gold and the USD retracement this week, Gary Wagner notes that it's interesting that the lower U.S. currency isn't taking gold out of its downward spiral. Focusing on Friday's nonfarm payrolls data, Wagner says with the stock market hitting highs, investors are holding back to see if there's any kind of pullback, which he says would give way to some safe-haven buying in the precious metals. As for the jobs numbers themselves, Wagner thinks there will be more positivity for the U.S. economy. Tune in now to see what Gary's eyeing on the charts on this week’s edition of Chart This! Kitco News, June 4, 2015.
Gary Wagner leads Kitco News into the long weekend with his latest thoughts on the gold market as well as the resurgence seen in the U.S. dollar. Talking on gold’s price action, Gary notes that the metal is now within the $1,182-1,221 trading range. “The fact that we’ve moved back in the range is foreboding because it seems easier to move down from here…especially with the dollar rebounding again,” he says. Tune in now to see what key levels are catching Gary’s attention and how he sees the metal set up for the short week ahead. Kitco News, May 22, 2015.
As gold prices build on Wednesday’s sharp rise, Gary Wagner checks in on this edition of Chart This! to see if there’s any substance for a sustained gold price rally. Without question, Wagner believes that gold must close above $1,200 Friday for there to be any hope of a sustained rally. He adds that while gold price fluctuations are linked to U.S. economic data performance, he adds that there is also a currency-based aspect involved. “[W]e pair gold against currencies and we’ve seen that the tremendous rise in the dollar put so much pressure on gold – now we’re seeing the dollar falling,” he says. “I think the big story here right now is the euro/dollar because [it's] been so excessively strong. We need to see if it can keep that.” Tune in now to see what the charts are telling Gary...

Alluding to the last "Chart This!" episode, Gary says he was looking for gold to breach $1,221 in order for him to become bullish on the market. “I said even in a bearish market we should see a bounce, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see the market to go to $1,221,” he says. However, Gary now says gold’s key resistance level now stands at the $1,200 mark. Gary also takes an in-depth look at the U.S. dollar as well as record hitting equities markets to see how they are affecting the gold market.
