Fed Minutes: Hints of hawkishness, but more lack of clarity

Updated  Aug 17, 2016 4:00:00 PM


At first glance, Wednesday’s release of minutes from July’s FOMC meeting appeared slightly hawkish and relatively more optimistic about the prospects of a Fed rate hike this year. The minutes stated that some Fed members “anticipated that economic conditions would soon warrant taking another step in removing policy accommodation.” This revelation gave some inkling that the Fed may at least be more divided when it comes to members’ opinions on near-term rate hikes, and perhaps  [...] Continue Reading ...


Crude stocks fall more than expected, gold traders await FOMC minutes

Updated  Aug 17, 2016 12:20:00 PM


The official weekly crude oil inventories report from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), released this afternoon, has confounded expectations in a positive way and oil prices have correspondingly surged to their best levels since early July. Whereas the American Petroleum Institute (API) had reported a 1 million barrel decline in US oil stocks and a large 2.2 million barrel build in gasoline inventories last night, today’s EIA data shows that the decrease in  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold undermined by rallying equities, dollar

Updated  Aug 8, 2016 8:20:00 AM


The rallying equity markets and firm US dollar is proving to be a toxic mix for the buck-denominated and perceived safe-haven gold. After eking out a small gain for the month of July, the metal started August on the front foot last week before turning decisively lower on Friday in response to the US jobs report, which came out much stronger than expected.  The precious metal has started the new week a touch weaker today,  [...] Continue Reading ...


Another big NFP beat sets stage for increased Fed rate hike speculation

Updated  Aug 5, 2016 11:50:00 AM


The US non-farm payrolls (NFP) data released on Friday morning showed another big beat for July following June’s stellar outcome. 255,000 jobs were added in July against prior consensus expectations of 180,000. Average hourly earnings were also better than expected, rising by 0.3% versus the previous 0.2% forecast. The unemployment rate remained steady from last month at 4.9%, falling slightly short of the 4.8% forecast. Further, June’s already-buoyant 287,000 figure was revised even higher to  [...] Continue Reading ...


US NFP Preview: From Horrendous to Stupendous – What’s Next?

Updated  Aug 4, 2016 1:00:00 PM


The past two Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) employment reports both showed exceedingly large deviations from prior consensus forecasts – but in opposite directions. May’s data, released in early June, showed a colossally disappointing 38,000 jobs added in May against prior expectations of 160,000. This was later revised even further down to a minuscule 11,000 jobs added. In sharp contrast, June’s numbers, released early last month, revealed an exceptionally positive 287,000 additional jobs versus prior expectations of  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold remains supported after Fed defers rate hike

Updated  Jul 28, 2016 12:40:00 PM


In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday’s FOMC statement, in which the Fed held rates steady as expected while still acknowledging improved economic conditions, gold spiked down on the mildly hawkish elements of the statement. Shortly after, however, as the markets digested the Fed’s characteristically non-committal comments that gave no indication as to the potential timing of a future rate hike, the precious metal surged on the continued interest rate uncertainty. Prior to Wednesday’s surge, the  [...] Continue Reading ...


Fed Recap: Another non-committal non-event

Updated  Jul 27, 2016 4:00:00 PM


As widely expected, the Fed opted once again to refrain from raising interest rates after its two-day meeting concluded on Wednesday afternoon. And as usual, market-watchers dug feverishly into the policy statement searching for any clues as to potential guidance on future rate hikes, but were again largely disappointed despite the fact that the Fed did acknowledge some economic improvement. Generally, the FOMC statement was changed modestly from previous months, projecting neither a substantially hawkish  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold falls out favour as equities surge

Updated  Jul 12, 2016 9:00:00 AM


Safe haven gold has been falling out of favour since the start of this week. Investors have apparently been piling into equities, especially in the US where the S&P 500 climbed to a new all-time high on Monday and the index future points to a new record high open this afternoon. Added to this, the dollar has managed to hold onto most of the gains made post Brexit due to a slight improvement in economic  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold tests key level head of US jobs report

Updated  Jul 8, 2016 8:10:00 AM


Since the outcome of the Brexit vote two weeks ago today, the dollar has risen sharply against both the euro and more noticeably the pound; government bonds have repeatedly rallied to new highs – that’s to say their yields have fallen to record low levels, while the equity markets have been all over the place. Amidst all this confusion and uncertainty, investors have flocked to traditional safe-haven assets: precious metals. Gold and especially silver have  [...] Continue Reading ...


Silver: precious metals soar as yields plunge

Updated  Jul 1, 2016 7:45:00 AM


Precious metals have lived up to expectations at these times of high uncertainty. Gold has managed to hold onto most of the Brexit-related gains made at the end of last week, while silver has actually made significantly more. Unlike the former, the latter has also many industrial uses and so when base metal like copper rally, silver benefits from this source, too. It is therefore also less sensitive to the “risk-on, risk-off” trade that the  [...] Continue Reading ...
