Daily Technical Insights 06 July 2022



Gold slides sharply below $1,770 following the extra pace and renewed upside momentum of the safe- haven, the US dollar. The intraday decline is supported by multiple factors, including a stronger US dollar and a hawkish Fed expectation ahead of the FOMC meeting.

From the technical perspective, gold is facing strong selling pressure, suggesting that gold is in the bearish mode. Dropping below the descending channel has brought further gold south. Breaking the channel has accelerated the bearish momentum toward the support level of $1,765. If the support fails to defend, then gold would confront another fresh selling pressure. In the meantime, the double-top formation has been constructed, meaning that gold is in the situation of bears. The current support level might be able to stop the bears a bit as the RSI indicator has reached the oversold territory. Further price action eyes on the upcoming FOMC meeting.

Resistance: 1791.85, 1818.39, 1821.76

Support: 1765.11


USDJPY gains positive traction for the second consecutive day as the risk sentiment favours the US dollar at the time of writing.

The outlook of USDJPY consolidates in between 134.89 and 137.00 ahead of the FOMC meeting. However, the divergent monetary policies between the Fed and the BOJ should limit the downside of USDJPY. USDJPY has breached the resistance level of 135.7, suggesting an upside momentum in the near- term. To the upside, if the immediate support can sustain and hold, then it would possibly contest the peak at 137.00. On the flip side, if the support fails to defend, then USDJPY is expected to consolidate.

Resistance: 135.70, 137.00

Support: 134.89, 134.24, 133.59


GBPUSD renews multi-year lows in March 2020. The outlook of GBPUSD remains bearish as the pair continues to trade below the descending trend line; in the meantime, the bearish momentum is supported by the double-top formation.

At the time of writing, GBPUSD is contesting the immediate support level of 1.1899. If the pair can recover at this stage, then it could potentially attract some dip-buying buyers, but bears are still in charge. On the downside, if the support cannot hold, then the pair would accelerate further south. At the moment, the selling pressure seems to moderate a bit as the RSI has reached the oversold condition and the MACD has turned upside.

Resistance: 1.208, 1.2192, 1.2283

Support: 1.1899
