February was a difficult month for the buyers in the Gold Markets as the precious metal lost 7% of its recent gains from the January Rally.
- The selling began on February 2nd, breaking a rising hourly range and triggering fresh shorts and longs to unwind from the bullion markets.
- A small Bearish Flag was also broken on the Daily Gold Charts on February 9th, confirming the overall trend and triggering more fresh shorts in the markets. Throughout the month, the Precious Metal continued to make lower lows and lower highs on all Daily and Intraday time frames.
- On February 27th, the Gold Markets found support around $1800, which acted as a previous breakout level and triggered some support-based buying. However, the Open Interest showed no signs of short covering until February 28th.
- A Bullish Hammer formed on February 28th, causing an increase in the price alongside shedding off some of the OI, signaling profit booking by the bears.
- Soon the market traded with a positive bias and broke $1825 which was the hourly falling trendline. This breakout further triggered some fresh buying in the metal.
Even though we have witnessed significant buying in the yellow metal in the initial days of March, the overall trend still remains a bit questionable. The $1860-70 remains a strong resistance area for Gold. Given the fact that the similar region also was the breakdown region for the Bearish Flag as highlighted in the charts. It is very rational to assume that the bears will try to push Gold back down from $1860-70 to the rising trendline as highlighted in the charts.
The major question is will the buyers defend this trendline? With Gold trading in a range where both buyers and sellers are highly active, it is pretty rational to assume that the coming one to two weeks will remain highly volatile for the Gold Markets. In cases wherein both the buyers and sellers are active, the markets often witness a range-bound consolidation on daily charts. However, the markets are influenced by a ton of different factors. Any external events can trigger a good move on the both ends. Given the fact that the volumes are higher on the both ends, as soon as the market shows a direction the move in that direction is definitely going to be ferocious. Just remember to refer to the chart levels highlighted in the image.
