Fed Instant Reaction: “Considerable” Confusion

Updated  Dec 17, 2014 3:00:00 PM


In our Fed preview earlier this morning, we argued that the market’s reaction to today’s Federal Reserve statement could be a binary outcome dependent on just two words: considerable time (see “Fed Up with ‘Considerable Time’” for more). As it turned out, the Fed managed to avoid this binary outcome by moving (NOT removing) the “considerable time” pledge within the statement itself. Seemingly in attempt to satisfy both hawks and doves, the new statement  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold soars on safe haven demand amid Greek worries; all eyes on $1240

Updated  Dec 9, 2014 11:20:00 AM


Gold is absolutely roaring higher today. Evidently, it has found support from the deterioration in risk appetite and also a weaker US dollar. The global stock markets have plunged amid worries over Greece after Prime Minister Antonis Samaras called a snap election for this month.   This has raised fears that new parliamentary elections would be required within weeks and that the anti-bailout Syriza could become the largest party in the new government. As  [...] Continue Reading ...


GOLD and USD decoupling? Thesis to be tested by NFP

Updated  Dec 5, 2014 7:10:00 AM


The price of gold has stabilised around $1200 per troy ounce following Monday’s sharp recovery. It is thus holding above the high of not just last week but the last month, too. In other words, precious metals traders have completely gotten over the disappointment from the “No” vote in Switzerland’s “Save Our Swiss Gold” proposal. In truth, that proposal never looked like it was going to win as it made little or no logical sense  [...] Continue Reading ...


GBPCHF: will it crumble as Swiss referendum fears fade?

Updated  Dec 1, 2014 7:40:00 AM


The Swiss referendum on the SNB’s gold reserves held the weekend delivered a clear result – the Swiss people do not want the Swiss National Bank (SNB) to hold more of the yellow metal. A win for the Yes camp (who would have forced the SNB to hold 20% of their assets as gold) could have caused a massive headache for the SNB. However, even though this risk has now been eradicated, the market has  [...] Continue Reading ...


Wheeler’s reflections after 25 years of inflation targeting by the RBNZ, talks down the kiwi

Updated  Nov 30, 2014 6:58:28 PM


It has been a very interesting start to the week, with NZDUSD dropping immediately at the open. It was later followed by similar sell-offs (a rally in the case of USDJPY) in the majors. There was also a sell-off in gold after the Swiss rejected a proposal requiring the SNB to hold reserves equivalent to 20% of their capital. Shortly after FX markets opened for the week RBNZ Governor Wheeler delivered a speech in  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold lower as Swiss referendum looms; key level being tested

Updated  Nov 28, 2014 7:25:00 AM


As reflected in the falling price of gold over the past three sessions, traders are clearly not feeling confident that Switzerland will vote ‘Yes’ on Sunday’s referendum on the Swiss National Bank’s gold reserves. The proposal would require the SNB to hold gold reserves equivalent to 20% of its total assets. Not only that, but all Swiss gold held with foreign central banks would need to be repatriated and the SNB would never be allowed  [...] Continue Reading ...


Recap: Swiss gold referendum: what does this mean for EURCHF?

Updated  Nov 28, 2014 6:05:00 AM


On Sunday 30th November the Swiss people will go to the polls to decide on a referendum on the Swiss Central Bank’s (the SNB) gold reserves. The proposal put forward by the right wing Swiss People’s Party would require the SNB to hold gold reserves equivalent to 20% of their total assets, all Swiss gold held with foreign central banks would need to be repatriated, and the SNB would need to commit to never selling  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold and silver at key technical junctures

Updated  Nov 25, 2014 12:50:00 PM


Gold and silver were both trading higher earlier today, but as I go to press they have turned mixed with the former turning flat. The metals found support from a weaker dollar which fell on the back of some mixed-bag US data.  Among the data highlights, consumer sentiment took a surprise tumble in November while the third quarter GDP was unexpectedly revised higher. The Conference Board’s composite index based on a survey of about 5  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold recovers ahead of FOMC minutes, silver testing key level

Updated  Nov 19, 2014 12:55:00 PM


Gold fell quite dramatically around 15:30 GMT today, shedding in the process around $20 in the space of 20 minutes. Initially, it was not clear what had caused the price slide, for the dollar was relatively stable around the time and there wasn’t any macro data released. But given that the EUR/CHF also “jumped” by a whopping 15 pips around that time, it became clear the move was due to some event in Switzerland.  Indeed,  [...] Continue Reading ...
