Gold is climbing again after some U.S. dollar weakness today. The price of Gold is also heavily influenced by the European Central Bank policy decisions after an announcement this Thursday about keeping the interest rates unchanged. Gold is currently trading at $1,947 and it’s inside a daily symmetrical triangle.
The current top of the triangle is $1,966 and the bottom at $1,906. A breakout of any of these two levels would most likely be the spark for bulls or bears.
If gold price breaks bearish, there is some support at $1,862, the low of August 12 and then the 100-MA at $1,839. In the case of a bullish breakout, Gold will face several resistance levels until its last high. The first point to break would be $1,992 followed by $2,000 psychological and $2,015.
The RSI is currently around 51.91 while trading volume seems to be declining as traders are expecting a big move to happen soon. The entire U.S. stock market still has mixed feelings after the recent jobless claims. The Dow Jones lost another 405 points in the past 24 hours. Similarly, the SP500 is down 1.76% after its close.
Gold Price Analysis: Weekly Chart
We know gold is in a clear uptrend and has also formed an equilibrium pattern in the weekly chart. The RSI has been quite high but this is not the first time. Back in June 2019, the RSI was overextended for several months before a pullback. Similarly, the RSI was also heavily overbought in July of this year and it also took several weeks to cool it off.
The most important pattern and indicator is the equilibrium pattern. On the way up, gold isn’t facing too much resistance.
PAXG, the Gold of Crypto
As gold is one of the most stable assets in the market, cryptocurrency stablecoins are starting to make use of it. PAX Gold (PAXG) was created by Paxos as an asset-backed token where each coin represents one fine troy ounce of a London Good Delivery gold bar.
All of the gold is actually stored inside vaults and customers can buy the PAXG token to have full ownership of the gold bars which can be converted to the actual gold. The ratio backing PAXG is 1:1 but the total supply changes to continuously mimic the price of gold.
The price of PAXG is currently $1,945, just like Gold. There are 31,000 PAXG tokens circulating right now and the total market capitalization of all the tokens is $60 million. The tokens can be bought through several big exchanges like Kraken, FTX, and even Uniswap.
