Gold Price Forecast and Crude Oil Price Outlook: Reversals Likely Soon

Gold price and crude oil prices, news and analysis:

Gold price reversal lower likely

For most of March so far the gold price has been rising steadily, increasing from a low of $1,676.89 per ounce on March 8 to current levels not far short of $1,750. Yet that advance is looking increasingly like a modest correction within a major trend lower and the correction could soon be over, leading to more price falls.

The gains in the gold price this month have come despite increases in the yields on US Treasury bonds and notes, which make zero-yielding gold less and less attractive so, in this case, both fundamental and technical factors are pointing in the same direction – to prices heading lower.

By contrast, crude oil prices have been easing back, falling from a high of $67.86 per barrel on March 8 for the US contract to current levels just under $64. Yet that looks like simply a correction lower within a major trend higher that will likely resume soon.

From a fundamental perspective, oil prices have been suffering from news of rising US inventories of the commodity. However, global economic growth forecasts are being revised higher as widespread coronavirus vaccinations increase the chances of a recovery from the slump caused by the pandemic. That should increase demand for oil as increasing output fuels the need for the commodity, raising prices in the process.
