Gold plunges on improved appetite for risk

Updated  Jul 24, 2014 12:10:00 PM

Just like the past few days, gold is once again weighed down by the deadly combination of stronger dollar and US equities. The greenback’s strength is bizarre given the big disappointment we had in terms of housing market data as new home sales plunged in June from an already low base the month before. Sales of new homes dropped to 406,000 annualised units in June from 442,000 in May (the original estimate for May was  [...] Continue Reading ...

Fundamental round-up: Russian sanctions, more bark than bite

Updated  Jul 21, 2014 11:35:00 AM

What a difference a week makes. After pro-Russian rebels shot down a civilian airliner in the Ukraine last week, the focus has shifted to geopolitical concerns and the prospect of mounting tensions between Russia and the rest of the developed world. The US, Australia, the UK and Germany have used strong language to pin the blame for the atrocity on Putin, however the EU has stopped short of following suit. EU Foreign ministers are  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold’s love affair with Fibonacci

Updated  Jul 21, 2014 6:30:00 AM

Gold is one of the most difficult assets to analyse from a fundamental point of view. There are so many variables that affect its price that for some it becomes almost impossible to have a strong conviction about the trend at any one moment in time. What’s more, some of the well-known variables that affect its price work with varying degrees of success from time to time. For example, the record low interest rate environment  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold plunges as “risk-on” trade discourages haven buying

Updated  Jul 14, 2014 12:50:00 PM

Gold and silver have fallen over 2 percent each today. It is not clear what exactly caused the metals to plunge. It could be that the stronger equity markets have discouraged some market participants from tying up their capital in the safe haven assets. After all, it was the weakness of the markets last week which helped gold prices to rise in the first place. Today, stocks have rallied on the back of some better  [...] Continue Reading ...

Precious metals surge on haven buying

Updated  Jul 10, 2014 8:15:00 AM

Precious metals have surged higher, even though the Indian government may have disappointed a few by refusing to reduce the import duty on the metal as it unveiled the 2014/5 budget today. It looks like the price of gold has been driven, above all, by safe haven buying as other risk assets such as stocks have dropped sharply and extended their recent weakness. The stock market has sold off mainly on concerns about the health  [...] Continue Reading ...

Precious metals higher ahead of FOMC minutes, Indian budget

Updated  Jul 9, 2014 12:30:00 PM

As gold and silver are priced in the US dollar and tend to move inversely with assets deemed risky, such as stocks, the conditions have thus been positive for the metals today with the greenback weakening and equities remaining largely out of favour. All eyes are on the FOMC’s last meeting minutes, scheduled for publication at 19:00 GMT (14:00 ET) this evening. If the minutes are more dovish than expected then one would expect a  [...] Continue Reading ...

Precious metals start the week on the back foot

Updated  Jul 7, 2014 8:05:00 AM

Precious metals are both weaker this Monday afternoon, with gold down 0.5% and silver 0.7% lower. The metals are again held back by a slightly stronger dollar, which has been in demand after the June employment report was much better than anticipated on Thursday. Prior to that jobs data, everything was looking up for gold with speculators jumping on the bullish bandwagon from all corners. As the CFTC’s positioning data showed on Friday, net longs  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold drops in the aftermath of NFP, but holds above key level

Updated  Jul 3, 2014 11:50:00 AM

Gold was weaker this morning as the dollar strengthened on expectations that the US employment report for the month of June would surprise to the upside. Sure enough, the headline nonfarm payrolls number came in much better at 288,000 while the rate of unemployment dropped to 6.1%, which was its lowest level since September 2008. As a result, gold prices fell further in the immediate aftermath of the employment report to hit a session low  [...] Continue Reading ...

Month in Review: June a Rough Month for USD

Updated  Jul 1, 2014 8:30:00 AM

“What is past is prologue” - William Shakespeare As we move into July and the second half of 2014 (already!), we think it would be valuable to review the performance of some of the major currencies and markets that we regularly discuss. On a day-to-day basis, it’s easy to get caught up in each minor wiggle on a chart, but by taking a step back and reviewing a month’s performance on the whole, major trends  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold’s bearish trend has ended, but will this necessarily instigate a rally?

Updated  Jul 1, 2014 8:25:00 AM

Overnight, precious metals climbed higher with gold hitting a four-month peak of $1333 per troy ounce while silver rose only marginally. It looks like the slightly firmer Chinese manufacturing PMI data has underpinned the metals, which suggests that demand for gold and silver as industrial materials may have been stronger last month.  But overall prices have found support from both technical and fundamental factors recently with the weakness in US dollar, due a dovish Federal  [...] Continue Reading ...
