      Gold Up $60 since FOMC Decision, US-China Trade Wars Drive the Move

      The price of gold is up around 4% since last week‘s FOMC decision and today’s move is being fueled by a ratcheting up of trade tensions between the US and China which has sparked a global risk-off move. US President Donald Trump turned up the pressure on China last week by slapping a 10% tariff on $300 billion of Chinese imports, in addition to the 25% on $250 billion of Chinese goods already in effect. In retaliation, China has let USDCNH weaken above 7.00, to counteract the tariffs, a move that will infuriate the US and may bring further punitive action.

      The daily gold chart continues to look positive but is also flashing a strong overbought signal which may temper any further short-term rally. Gold broke above the recent six-year high at $1,453/oz. and a close and consolidation above this level will bring the May 2013 high of $1,488/oz. into view before $1,551/oz. comes into play. Support seen between $1,433/oz. and $1,437/oz.

      Silver Held Back by Technical Resistance

      Silvers recent sell-off has been reversed and is now looking at breaking back above recent highs and an important Fibonacci retracement level. The recent double-high at $16.65/oz. is guarded by the 61.8% retracement level at $16.57/oz. with two other intra-day highs in-between. Silver needs a break and close above $16.65/oz. before it can re-test the June 14, 2018 swing-high at $17.32/oz. A cluster of lows between $16.12/oz. and $16.17/oz. provides support.
