GOLD In a Corrective Retracement - Elliott Wave Analysis

Gold is in a sharp recovery this year, displaying a robust rally since breaching the March highs of $2,133.

The move shows no overlaps, indicating a clean and strong impulse, likely representing an extended third wave, with potential targets between $2,500 and $2,600.

Analyzing the daily time frame and more closely examining the 4-hour chart, there has been a strong push higher two weeks back. But, notice that the break to new ATH has been temporary and that the price is now coming back below the 4-hour channel support and breaking the $2,372 swing area, suggesting a deeper correction might be in play, possibly made by three waves. Alternatively, the current impulse down from the high could also be wave C of a flat. Either way, it suggests that the decline is not over, but strong support could be found at $2,280, where bulls might show up again.

However, a lot will depend on the US yields and FED policy as well. Higher US yields could potentially cause more damage to metals, but if this is due to strong economic data and higher inflation, or hawkish FED, then any dip in gold could be short-lived, as many investors might look to the metal as an inflation hedge.
