Safe-havens surge as fear grips global markets

Updated  Mar 22, 2018 1:06:45 PM


Market volatility surged sharply yet again on Thursday as equities tumbled on political concerns and fears of a potentially escalating global trade war. These fears have been brought on by US President Trump’s continuing campaign to impose massive US import tariffs, and the global retaliations that are expected to follow. Trump is expected to sign a memorandum imposing substantial (~$50 billion) and wide-ranging tariffs on Chinese imports in a bid to punish China for intellectual  [...] Continue Reading ...


Is Heightened Market Volatility Here to Stay?

Updated  Feb 13, 2018 12:13:04 PM


As major equity indices briefly entered correction territory last week – with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling by over 1100 points in one day on February 5th, its largest single-day drop ever – volatility came roaring back into the markets after an unusually quiet and complacent 2017. While last week’s overall pullback in global stock markets was far from disastrous when viewed from a longer-term perspective, however, the disproportionate rise in market volatility was  [...] Continue Reading ...


The Week Ahead: All eyes on inflation and interest rates

Updated  Feb 9, 2018 2:10:24 PM


The roller coaster ride that equity markets took into correction territory this past week has been characterized mostly by dizzying plummets and much less so by hopeful rebounds. Key to the wild swings was exceptionally inflated market volatility that reflected sharply elevated fear as the short-volatility trade that had prevailed for several years rapidly unwound in the span of just a couple of days. Helping to spark this high volatility were increased concerns about rising  [...] Continue Reading ...


NFP Recap and Week Ahead

Updated  Feb 2, 2018 11:30:47 AM


The official US jobs report for January that was released on Friday morning was highly positive, easily beating expectations on both the headline data and, very importantly, wage growth. 200,000 non-farm jobs were added to the US economy in January against prior consensus expectations of around 180,000. Additionally, December’s initial 148,000 disappointment has now been  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold rally potentially topped out

Updated  Jan 31, 2018 12:31:46 PM


The primary driver of rallying gold prices since mid-December has clearly been a plunging US dollar. During the past month-and-a-half, the sharp rise in the price of gold from its mid-December low around $1236 up to its new long-term high around $1365 that was just reached last week, has tracked the equally sharp plunge for the US dollar index during the same period. Strong bearish sentiment that has continued to weigh heavily on the US  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold extends slide as US dollar, equities stay aloft on US tax reform anticipation

Updated  Dec 5, 2017 12:38:24 PM


As the US dollar and equity markets on Tuesday continued to stay supported on anticipation of impending tax reform in the US, both market volatility and safe-haven demand continued to contract. This contraction could clearly be seen in the price of gold, which extended its slide of the past week as the rebounding dollar attempted to push higher. Though tax reform is not yet a done deal, as the House of Representatives must pass its  [...] Continue Reading ...


Will gold continue to glitter?

Updated  Nov 28, 2017 10:44:40 AM


The price of gold hit a six-week high at the beginning of the week. Increased geopolitical tensions, in addition to a weaker dollar helped boost the precious metal to levels not seen since mid-October. Given that gold is traded in dollars, this means it tends to trade inversely to the value of the dollar. The dollar has been weaker over the last month or so, which has served to boost the price of gold. The  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold poised for break from tight consolidation

Updated  Nov 14, 2017 1:44:33 PM


With the euro surging sharply on Tuesday, the US dollar took a steep dive despite a higher-than-expected US inflation reading from Tuesday’s Producer Price Index. The PPI for October came out at 0.4% against prior forecasts of 0.1%. The dollar has been pressured since late last week as concerns over US growth as well as the likelihood and timing of US tax reform have weighed on both equity markets and the dollar. Meanwhile, gold has  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold eyes lower levels on stronger dollar

Updated  Oct 26, 2017 3:26:26 PM


The price of gold continued to drop sharply on Thursday, extending its fall of the past two weeks, as the US dollar surged, equities rebounded from the previous day, and markets awaited President Trump’s impending announcement on who will lead the US Federal Reserve beginning in February. Helping to keep both stocks and the dollar supported on Thursday, the US House of Representatives approved a Senate budget that should open the path further to the  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold remains pressured on Fed anticipation, risk appetite

Updated  Oct 18, 2017 2:47:23 PM


The price of gold fell for a third consecutive day this week, erasing most of its gains from the previous week, as several market factors continued to weigh on the precious metal. Although the US dollar was modestly down on Wednesday, the first half of this week has seen a rebound from the previous week’s pullback. This current dollar rebound, which has contributed to pressuring dollar-denominated gold, has been driven in part by high anticipation  [...] Continue Reading ...
