Gold Daily Price Analysis – Gold Falls Sharply After Unexpected CPI Data

  • 2 mins read ●
  • Published:
gold market analysis 2

Gold prices fell sharply yesterday as the Fed is projected to take a hawkish stance on rate cuts following higher-than-expected inflation data. 

Key Points

  • Gold prices dropped yesterday after the release of strong CPI data. 
  • Fundamentally, the Fed’s hawkish stance on rate cuts can set the tone.  
  • If the price doesn’t stabilize in the near term, we may see gold plummet further to $1973 or $1965.

Gold Daily Price Analysis – 14/02/2024

Hotter-than-expected CPI that shows an increase in core inflation in the US sent the probability of a rate cut lower in the next Fed meeting. As a result, gold prices dropped following the resort, with gold spot prices shedding 1.33%. Today, the fall has continued, as the price has further lost -0.2% as we speak to fall to $1991.

Yesterday’s CPI data was higher than analysts anticipated, suggesting that any efforts at disinflation and rate cuts would take a backseat for now. This means treasury bonds will continue to have higher yields, the US currency will retain its strength, and less attention will be paid to safe-haven assets, like the yellow metal.

Technically, on the daily chart, the price of Gold fell far below the 50 EMA, and the RSI fell below the 50 line, indicating a heavily bearish atmosphere for the precious metal.

Gold Technical Analysis – 14/02/2024

Yesterday, the price of gold fell heavily, but we’re still awaiting the aftermath of this fall from a technical perspective. Do we see an immediate retracement? Or do we get a further drop today?

Only time will answer those questions. But whatever happens, these are some key levels to pay attention to:

On the upside, traders should carefully watch the $1999.09, $2006.27, and $2011.38 price levels, which coincide with the 0.786, 0.618, and 0.5 levels of the Fibonacci retracement tool, respectively. A rise above these levels will be a huge statement of intent on the part of the bulls.
