Gold price technical analysis

Gold staged a notable recovery last week. President Trump testing positive for Covid-19 caused traders to move into safe-haven asset classes.

Gold price technical analysis shows that a rally towards $1,980 could take place if the $1,920 level is overcome.

Gold medium-term price trend

Gold staged a strong recovery above $1,900 last week, after the yellow metal suffered its worst monthly loss in more than 12 months.

Gold technical analysis shows that the $1,915 level is an important technical barrier that bulls need to overcome this week.

Gold price technical analysis

Bulls need to stage multiple daily price closes above gold’s 50-day moving average, around $1,915, to encourage medium-term buying interest.

If bulls overcome the $1,915 area then the $1,925 and $1,945 levels offer the strongest form of technical resistance.

The daily time frame also shows that an important rising trendline, around $1,970, is another viable upside target if the mentioned resistance areas are broken.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
