The Dollar is likely to continue weakening over the next few years according to analysis from a number of major banks. A falling Dollar would be a bull signal for gold investors.
The Dollar Index rallied over the past few days but is likely to encounter stubborn resistance at 90.50. Respect is likely and would signal another test of support at 88.50. Breach of support would warn of another primary decline.
* Target calculation: 91 – (95 – 91) =87
Gold lacks direction, ranging between 1310 and 1360, but that would change dramatically if the Dollar breaches support at 88.50. Breakout above $1360 would signal another primary advance, with a target of $1450*. Follow-through above $1375 would strengthen the signal.
* Target calculation: 1350 + (1350 – 1250) = 1450
The All Ordinaries Gold Index has been undermined by the strong Aussie Dollar. Further weakness of the greenback would help support commodity prices and the Aussie. But further gains on XGD remain likely and recovery above 5100 would signal another advance.
