How strong is the relationship between the dollar and commodities?

Updated  Mar 26, 2015 11:20:00 AM


The dollar and its relationship with commodities has been talked about a lot recently. The sharp dollar increase in the second half of the year was blamed for the large sell off in the price of oil and other commodities, now that the dollar has given back some of its recent gains, the dollar sell-off is being seen as a contributing factor to the increase in the oil price. However, it is never as  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold: Bucking the Trend in the Buck

Updated  Mar 19, 2015 3:30:00 PM


Markets have calmed down today after yesterday’s staggering post-Fed moves, but many traders are still trying to catch their breath. The more forward-looking traders who were able to capitalize on the dollar’s momentary weakness are sitting pretty today: EURUSD has fallen over 400 pips from yesterday’s peak, GBPUSD is once again trading lower on the week, and USDJPY is back pressing against its 7.5-year high near 121.80. It’s too early to say conclusively whether yesterday’s  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold: Rallying in to Resistance

Updated  Mar 18, 2015 4:37:02 PM


As anticipated, markets are going absolutely bonkers after the Federal Reserve made their intentions known to the world this afternoon.  In terms of the statement, they pretty much did what was expected of them; they dropped the word “patient” and signaled that future policy would be data dependent.  The biggest market moving catalyst for the market though was the dot chart that indicates where committee members feel interest rates will be in the future.   [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold under pressure ahead of FOMC

Updated  Mar 17, 2015 1:20:00 PM


The price of gold spiked higher earlier this afternoon for no apparent reason, although a bounce back looked overdue anyway given that the stock markets had already slumped. Nevertheless, as the session wore on, gold started to head lower once again and equities soon bounced off their lows too. Evidently, traders are unnerved about the prospect of an earlier rate hike from the Federal Reserve and its impact on the dollar. If the Fed opts  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold recovers as risk appetite wanes

Updated  Mar 10, 2015 10:00:00 AM


Gold being the only real alternative to fiat currency was the obvious choice for market participants this morning, which rallied sharply off its overnight lows after “Grexit” fears made an unwelcome return to the markets and dampened the appetite for risk. The yellow precious metal had been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons up until today and now could be the time for it to shine and stage a comeback rally. That said,  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold: USD conceals metal’s strength

Updated  Mar 6, 2015 7:00:00 AM


Ahead of the US monthly jobs report, gold is hovering just above the $1190 handle and threatening to break further lower. The precious metal is now down for a fifth consecutive session and is thus set to close lower for the week.  Or will it? This will depend almost entirely on the outcome of the NFP report. As my colleagues in the US pointed out in their NFP preview, the major labour market indicators  [...] Continue Reading ...


Precious metals: alternative currency thesis called into question

Updated  Mar 2, 2015 1:20:00 PM


Precious metals are trading lower as I go to press. Despite China becoming the latest central bank to cut interest rates again over the weekend, gold and silver have not found much demand as alternative currencies. In fact, the Aussie dollar has also fallen while the stock markets have failed to move noticeably higher on the back of the PBOC’s move. This suggests that investors may have interpreted the PBOC’s move as a signal that  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold lower again after Yellen testimony sparked short-covering

Updated  Feb 24, 2015 11:40:00 AM


The price of gold fell today to a fresh 7-week low of just above $1190 before bouncing back strongly to trade for a time above $1200. Demand for the safe haven asset was initially already low as virtually everyone was expecting the Eurozone finance ministers to approve the Greek reform proposals for extending its bailout. Indeed, when this was approved the markets barely moved. Then it was over to Janet Yellen, the Federal Reserve chairwoman,  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold jumps as $1200 support holds, but where to next?

Updated  Feb 19, 2015 6:45:00 AM


After a weaker start yesterday gold turned sharply higher to close in the positive territory. The precious metal has since extended its gains to trade around $1220 at the time of this writing. Gold’s rebound at the key $1200 mark should not come as a surprise for our technically-minded readers. We have been banging on about the technical importance of this level for a number of weeks now and fully expected it to drop to  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold plunges on increased deflation, reduced Grexit risks

Updated  Feb 17, 2015 10:30:00 AM


Gold has fallen sharply today following a three-day countertrend move. Clearly, demand for the safe haven asset is simply not there, for if there was it would probably be trading much higher due to the growing concerns over Greece, the advances of the terrorist group IS (now in Libya) and the continued conflicts in Ukraine despite the ceasefire agreement there. If these sort of risks are unable to lend gold support, one would have to  [...] Continue Reading ...
