Refinitiv data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘buy’ for Goldman.

The long-term price target of $429.10 suggests the share is currently trading at a discount of 37% to a perceived longer term fair value.

The long-term trend for Goldman remains down as the price trades firmly below the 200-day simple moving average (SMA).

In the short-term, however we have a bullish wedge formation (red lines) and oversold signal on the company. This suggests that we could see a short-term rebound within the longer term uptrend.

The rebound would be considered following a break (close) above wedge resistance at roughly $328.90. This scenario would consider a move back towards the 375.50 level.

Traders respecting the longer term downtrend would, however look for a bearish reversal before this level ($375.50) for short entry. Alternatively, a break below wedge support ($299.60) could also suggest short entry with $269.70 the next support target.

In summary

- Goldman Sachs is set to release Q1 2022 results on the 14th of April 2022

- Q1 2022 are expected to show a year-on-year decline in both revenue and earnings per share (EPS)

- Long-term broker consensus suggests the share is currently a ‘buy’, with a longer term price target of $429.10

- IG clients with open positions on the share are predominantly long

- The long-term price trend for Goldman remains down, although in the short-term a falling wedge and oversold signal suggest a short-term rebound.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
