Gold: is the selling overdone?

Updated  Aug 26, 2015 1:00:00 PM


From its opening price of about $1145 today, gold has dropped almost $30 to a low so far of $1117. It has therefore shed its entire gains made since the beginning of the US stock market meltdown on Wednesday of last week. On the one hand, gold’s counter-intuitive price action this week strongly suggests that the metal is heading to significantly lower levels. After all, the 1000 point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold’s failure to shine on Black Monday is worrying

Updated  Aug 25, 2015 7:50:00 AM


During the recent stock market turmoil gold managed to rally sharply as investors sought safe haven assets. Appetite for riskier assets fell in part because of renewed concerns about the health of China, the world’s second largest economy. Concerns were raised following the release of some weaker macroeconomic numbers, including the most recent manufacturing PMI, and the decision by the People’s Bank of China to sharply devalue its currency. The PBOC was at it again  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold shines as stocks plunge…but where to now?

Updated  Aug 21, 2015 7:20:00 AM


Judging by gold’s $90 rally since July and the $50 gain over the past three days alone, it would appear that the metal has regained its status as the ultimate safe haven asset. Equities have come under severe pressure in recent days, with the US and European indices joining the Chinese market turmoil. Sentiment has been hurt in part because of renewed concerns about the health of the world’s second largest economy. The Flash Manufacturing  [...] Continue Reading ...


Will gold cross the critical “line in the sand” at 1140?

Updated  Aug 20, 2015 8:40:00 AM


The fallout from yesterday’s Federal Reserve minutes has been swift, and in some cases, dramatic. As my colleague Kathleen Brooks noted earlier today, the market saw the minutes as dovish, prompting Fed Funds futures traders to lower their implied probability of a September rate hike to just 38%, from roughly 50% beforehand. The dollar was the big casualty of the release: the trade-weighted dollar index has fallen back below its 50-day moving average near 96.25  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold bears lurking as price approaches major resistances

Updated  Aug 17, 2015 2:00:00 PM


Last week gold managed to post its first gain in eight weeks. Prices were supported almost entirely by a slightly weaker US dollar and momentum buying after its technical breakout above a consolidative range between $1080 and $1100. Though the sudden devaluation of the yuan last week effectively increased the cost of gold for Chinese buyers, some of the impact of this was probably neutralised by additional buying to hedge against further declines in the  [...] Continue Reading ...


Forget Super Thursday: it could be Black Friday for gold

Updated  Aug 6, 2015 12:10:00 PM


Now that Super Thursday is drawing to a close, it could be a Black Friday for gold. Friday’s much-anticipated jobs data could provide us a big clue in terms of when to expect a potential rate rise from the Federal Reserve. If the numbers are as strong as the ISM services PMI indicated on Wednesday then calls will increase for a September rate hike. This should help to give the dollar another shot in the  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold’s next move could be huge, but which direction will it be?

Updated  Aug 3, 2015 12:30:00 PM


Gold ended last week only marginally lower thanks to Friday’s noticeable bounce which saw the precious metal momentarily surpass the $1100 handle. Friday’s counter-trend move was partly in response to news that the second quarter US Employment Cost Index (ECI) showed a very small rise of 0.2% in wage pressure. Traders responded to the data by booking some profit on their long dollar and short gold positions as the month drew to a close. Nevertheless,  [...] Continue Reading ...


A Gold-en Anchor on Prices

Updated  Jul 24, 2015 9:10:00 AM


By far the biggest storyline in the markets this week has been the precipitous fall in the price of gold. After closing just below key support at the 1140 level last week, bullish traders panicked this week, driving the yellow metal down by a whopping 5% from last Friday’s close as of writing. Interestingly, today’s drop has occurred despite a disappointing drop in China’s Markit Flash Manufacturing PMI data. The broad measure of manufacturing  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold selling unlikely to be over just yet

Updated  Jul 21, 2015 7:00:00 AM


Precious metals have stabilised a little after Monday’s vicious bear onslaught, which saw gold drop by a huge $45 in the space of a few minutes during the Asian session. That was apparently sparked by large sell volumes on the gold exchange in Shanghai. While the extent of the sell-off has surprised even us, we nevertheless had been warning about a move of this magnitude for several weeks, most notably on Wednesday (see “Gold  [...] Continue Reading ...


Crude: ‘black gold’ to follow footsteps of yellow gold?

Updated  Jul 20, 2015 1:00:00 PM


Commodities have been in the receiving end of the bear blitz in recent weeks.  Traders have been worried about the impact of the appreciating US dollar and falling confidence in China, with the world’s second largest economy being a major consumer of gold, oil and Iron ore among other basic materials. Unless you've been living under a rock, you would know about the huge $45 drop in the value of gold in overnight trading in  [...] Continue Reading ...
