Kenaikan Harga emas tertahan di kisaran Ma 200 grafik 1 jam kemarin di $1267 dan meleha kembali hingga ke area $1239. Harga kini berada di kisaran 1245.  Tekanan turun emas kemungkinan karena dollar yang menguat jelang libur pasar AS, Independence Day, besok dan jelang data tenaga kerja Jumat pekan ini.  Dalam jangka pendek, tekanan turun emas berpeluang membawa emas hingga level 1233 (MA 100 grafik 1 jam). Support selanjutnya di kisaran 1224. Sementara bila harga menembus level 1250 (MA 50 grafik 1 jam), emas berpeluang menyentuh level MA 200 nya di kisaran 1256-62.  Hari ini cukup banyak data ekonomi AS yang akan dirilis seperti data Non Farm Employment Change yang disurvei oleh ADP, data klaim tunjangan pengangguran mingguan, data neraca perdagangan dan data aktivitas sektor non manufaktur yang disurvei ISM.  Fokus perhatian pasar tentunya lebih ke data-data yang berkaitan dengan situasi tenaga kerja AS. Bila data-data ini membaik, dollar bisa kembali menguat dan melemahkan harga emas. Demikian pula sebaliknya.

Harga emas masih berkonsolidasi di area yang sama. Ketidakmampuan emas menembus 1683 dan kembali terkoreksi dalam menunjukkan hal tersebut. Pergerakan harga emas seperti kehilangan momentum. Perlu momentum dari berita-berita baru untuk menggerakan harga emas dari kisarannya yang ada saat ini.

Harga kini berada di sekitar 1670an. Tekanan turun bisa membawah emas ke area trend line di 1663 yang juga area MA 200 di grafik harian. Waspada area bawah 1663, penembusan level ini bisa membuka pelemahan yang lebih dalam ke area 1650an.

Sementara resisten terdekat di 1673. Penembusan level ini ke atas membuka lagi peluang ke area 1680 an.

More of the Same Panic and Fear; Gold Rallies to Yet Another Record High


By Joel Kruger, Technical Strategist

11 August 2011 02:54 GMT

Markets are once again back under pressure after Tuesday’s equity market gains were entirely wiped out (9th worst point drop on record for Dow). Fear and panic remain firmly in control, and gold prices continue to soar to record highs beyond $1800. The US Dollar has been a major beneficiary of the safe haven liquidation, while the Franc and Yen are also incredibly well bid. Meanwhile, the higher yielding commodity bloc has been decimated, and the Australian Dollar has led the declines. A weaker batch of employment data out of Australia has not helped the antipodean’s cause, with the unemployment rate rising to 5.1% and coming in well above the 4.9% expectation.

Elsewhere, contagion fears in Europe have picked up, with market participants seriously worrying about the ability for the Eurozone economy to recover from what appears to be a very deep and messy crisis. The attention has shifted to Italy, with the country’s banking sector falling apart, while France’s credit worthiness is also in the spotlight following the S&P downgrade of US ratings. Any additional deterioration in the Eurozone could seriously compromise the credibility of the EFSF. Looking ahead, the economic calendar for the remainder of the day is mostly second tier, and markets should continue to trade off of the broader global macro themes and developments.

TECHNICAL OUTLOOK

Opening_Comment_body_eur.png, More of the Same Panic and Fear; Gold Rallies to Yet Another Record High

EUR/USD: The market continues to adhere to a bearish sequence of lower tops since May, with a fresh lower top now in place by 1.4535 ahead of the next downside extension back towards and eventually below 1.4000. In the interim, look for any intraday rallies to be well capped ahead of 1.4400, while only back above 1.4500 delays.

Opening_Comment_body_yen.png, More of the Same Panic and Fear; Gold Rallies to Yet Another Record High

USD/JPY: Setbacks have stalled out just ahead of the 76.25 record lows from March, with the market dropping to 76.30 ahead of the latest reversal. Given that we are seeing the rate by record lows, we would not at all be surprised to see the formation of a material base in favor of significant upside back towards the 82.00 area over the coming sessions. However, the overall structure still remains bearish and it will take a break back above 80.00 to officially alleviate downside pressures and confirm reversal prospects. Below 76.25 negates.

Opening_Comment_body_gbp.png, More of the Same Panic and Fear; Gold Rallies to Yet Another Record High

GBP/USD: The market remains locked in a broader downtrend off of the April highs, and a fresh lower top is now sought out somewhere ahead of 1.6550 in favor of the next downside extension back towards the recent range lows at 1.5780. Ultimately, only a break back above 1.6550 would delay bearish outlook and give reason for pause, while back under the 200-Day SMA at 1.6085 should accelerate declines.

Opening_Comment_body_chf.png, More of the Same Panic and Fear; Gold Rallies to Yet Another Record High

USD/CHF: Despite the intense downtrend resulting in recently established fresh record lows by 0.7000, short/medium/longer-term technical studies are violently stretched, and we continue to like the idea of taking shots at buying in anticipation of a major base. Still, at this point, fading this trend will require some upside confirmation and we would look for a break and close back above 0.7350 at a minimum to open the door for these reversal prospects and alleviate immediate downside pressures.

US Dollar Looking More Contructive Across the Board into Tuesday


US Dollar Looking More Contructive Across the Board into Tuesday

By Joel Kruger, Technical Strategist

02 August 2011 04:18 GMT
  • US Dollar Index bounces by yearly lows; more upside potential
  • RBA leaves rates on hold as was widely expected at 4.75%
  • Yen and Swissie find offers after trading to record highs
  • US debt ceiling developments still being digested
  • Eurozone structural concerns resurface
  • Aussie and Kiwi finally showing weakness

The US Dollar has been well bid overall in the early week, with the price action resulting in a favorable close off of the yearly lows in the US Dollar Index. The only other currencies that have shown better bid in recent trade have been the other safe haven currencies in the Swiss Franc and Yen, which both trade just off recently established record highs against the Greenback. Still, even the Yen and Swissie showed some relative weakness in the latter portion of Monday trade, and with both of these markets looking extremely stretched, the risks from here seem to favor USD appreciation going forward.

Markets had initially been well bid on Monday on the news of a resolution to the US debt ceiling talks, with risk correlated assets rallying impressively, before finally reversing quite sharply into North American trade. A combination of concern over the type of resolution achieved by the US government, softer US ISM data, and widening Eurozone peripheral bond spreads, all contributed to the risk off trade, with US equities getting hit rather hard. We also started to finally see some relative weakness in the antipodean currencies, with both Aussie and Kiwi rolling over from post-float record high levels and putting in bearish closes against the Greenback.

The RBA has now come out early Tuesday leaving rates on hold at 4.75% as was widely expected, with the accompanying central bank statement maintaining its newly adopted less hawkish outlook. The central bank continues to express concern over broader global macro threats and some worrying deteriorative local fundamentals, and as such, even with the attractive yield differentials, we would continue to look to be fading any strength in the currency as we contend that the best is now behind the currency down under.

On the data front, the key release in Asian trade was a weaker than expected Aussie building approvals print. Looking ahead, economic releases in the European session are few, but at the same time should not go unnoticed with Swiss retails sales, UK construction PMI, and Eurozone producer prices all very capable of moving markets. US equity futures and oil prices are consolidating their latest declines, while gold is once again looking toppish by record highs following Monday’s bearish close.

Ultimately, only back above 1.4535 would negate outlook and give reason for pause.

USD/JPY: Setbacks have stalled out for now just ahead of the 76.25 record lows from March, with the market dropping to 76.30 ahead of the latest minor bounce. However, the bounce is somewhat significant on a short-term basis, with the market putting in a bullish outside day formation on Monday to suggest that the price could once again be very well supported in favor of a major upside reversal over the coming days. Look for a break and close back above 78.05 to confirm bullish reversal prospects and accelerate gains towards 80.00, while back below 86.25 negates and opens the door for fresh record lows.

Monday’s strong bearish outside formation could very well set up the next lower top by 1.6475, and we look for a break and close back below 1.6200 to confirm and accelerate declines. Ultimately, only a break back above 1.6550 would delay bearish outlook and give reason for pause.

Monday’s fresh record lows by 0.7730 seem to have been very well supported, and we would be on the lookout for a break and close back above 0.7950 on Tuesday to encourage short-term reversal prospects and accelerate gains. Back below 0.7730 negates.
