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 ...


Gold rebounds, but Fed expectations continue to weigh

Updated  Oct 9, 2017 11:53:20 AM


Despite last week’s sharp disappointment in the headline US non-farm payrolls release, which showed a hurricane-related loss of 33K jobs in September against forecasts for around an 80-90K gain, market expectations for a December interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve actually rose above 90% in the aftermath of the release. Part of the reason for this rise in Fed expectations despite the headline jobs disappointment was that markets had already discounted September’s anomalous weather  [...] Continue Reading ...


NFP Recap: First US job decline in seven years, lower unemployment, higher wage growth

Updated  Oct 6, 2017 10:03:24 AM


Friday’s US jobs report for September contained several rather dramatic surprises. The headline non-farm payrolls (NFP) number actually declined by 33,000 jobs, the first negative reading in seven years, due in large part to the impact of recent hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) on food services and drinking establishments. These businesses alone lost 105,000 jobs in September due to the weather-related impact. Markets had been expecting a lower-than-usual (but positive) reading at around +90,000 jobs. An  [...] Continue Reading ...


NFP Preview: Will a US jobs beat on low expectations sustain the dollar recovery?

Updated  Oct 5, 2017 12:49:09 PM


Since the last official US jobs report was released in early September, the US dollar has bottomed out and begun a tentative recovery, gold topped out and initiated a sharp plunge, and equities have continued to gain ground in record high territory. That non-farm payrolls (NFP) data release in September, which reported August job growth, showed a gain of 156,000 jobs against a prior consensus forecast of around 180,000. While the actual number disappointed expectations,  [...] Continue Reading ...


Battered gold braces for key US economic data

Updated  Oct 3, 2017 1:16:14 PM


Gold prices have been battered relentlessly for more than three weeks as the US dollar has generally been rising in recovery mode from its long-term lows, expectations for a Fed rate hike in December have increased, and markets have failed to be daunted by recent geopolitical risk events and conditions. These three factors have weighed heavily on the dollar-denominated, non-yielding, safe-haven asset, pressuring the price of gold well below the $1300 handle. Even further nuclear  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold surges as NK/US tensions escalate

Updated  Sep 25, 2017 4:12:22 PM


The US dollar was mixed on Monday – down against the safe-haven Japanese yen and up against the euro in the aftermath of Sunday’s German election – but was broadly higher overall against a basket of major currencies. Despite this renewed strength in the greenback, which has been driven largely by increased expectations of a December Fed rate hike in the wake of last week’s hawkish FOMC meeting, the price of gold defied these factors  [...] Continue Reading ...
