Daily analysis of Gold for November 16, 2016



The gold price continues fluctuating within a sideways range between the 1,211.31 support and the 1,249.94 resistance. Thus, we still keep our outlook neutral until the price manages to breach one of these levels and detect its next track clearly. Note that a break of 1,211.31 levels will extend the correctional bearish wave to target the 1,172.68 area; while a breach of 1,249.94 represents initial positive factor that supports the attempts to regain the main bullish trend. Upside targets will begin at 1,297.74 and extend towards the previously recorded top at 1,375.00. The expected trading range for today is between the 1,211.00 support and the 1,249.94 resistance. read more

Daily analysis of Silver for November 16, 2016



The silver price gradually crawls upwards approaching from retesting the 17.43 level, which represents 50% Fibonacci level that was broken previously. Stochastic reaches the overbought areas thresholds, while the EMA50 forms continuous negative pressure on the intraday and short-term trading. Therefore, we still suggest the bearish trend in the upcoming sessions, and the targets begin at 16.56 and extend to 15.49 after breaking the previous level. Remember that it is important to hold below 17.43 to continue the suggested bearish bias. The expected trading range for today is between the 16.56 support and the 17.43 resistance. read more

Technical analysis of USD/CAD for November 16, 2016

General overview for 16/11/2016:

The first wave down labeled on the chart as a wave -a- has been done and now the market is in the internal corrective cycle. The top at the level of 1.3589 might be the swing high of a larger time frame (the brown wave Z). If it is, then the uptrend might be reversing, but to confirm this scenario we need a daily close below the level of 1.3290. Otherwise, the pair is expected to trade sideways. read more
