Gold soars as risk appetite plunges

Updated  Feb 11, 2016 7:00:00 AM


Gold’s sharp rally off December’s low of $1046 has seen its price rise more than 17 per cent in the space of a few weeks. At the time of writing today, the precious metal was trading at just shy of $1230. Gold’s sudden waking from its slumber has caught many people by surprise, myself included. Likewise, the stock market plunge has lasted a lot longer than what most people had probably envisaged when it first  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold shines at new seven-month high on sharp plunge in equities

Updated  Feb 8, 2016 1:30:00 PM


The further plunge in global equity markets that has marked the beginning of this new trading week has understandably helped to prop up certain assets that are considered safer alternatives to volatile stocks. These “safe haven” instruments include the Japanese yen and gold. In the case of gold, this persistent volatility in equities has been joined by a recent drop in the value of the US dollar along with lowered expectations of further Fed rate  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold’s impressive surge continues ahead of NFP

Updated  Feb 5, 2016 6:40:00 AM


Gold’s 10 per cent rally since early December has certainly been impressive, but not a surprise given the on-going stock market turmoil and dollar weakness. The precious metal obviously pays no interest or dividends, and costs money to store. But then again with central bank currency war being at full throttle, yields are universally low or come with undesirably high risks. Given the current level of investor pessimism about the global economy, investors are unsurprisingly  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold: Will 1135 be a reflection point or an inflection point?

Updated  Feb 2, 2016 2:55:00 PM


Late last week, we highlighted a rounded bottom pattern in gold, concluding that “the short-term bias in gold points higher as long as the yellow metal remains above the key 1100-1110 zone. To the topside, the key levels to watch in the coming week will be the 200-day MA at 1130, followed by the 61.8% and 78.6% Fibonacci retracements of the Oct-Nov drop at 1135 and 1160, respectively.“ After a decent rally Monday, the  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold finally rounding into form?

Updated  Jan 29, 2016 3:05:00 PM


Everyone’s favorite precious metal has fallen a long way from the halcyon days of a few years ago, when it seemed like gold could do no wrong. Nowadays, traders are more likely to get laughed at then applauded for buying gold, and based on the trend over the last few years, skepticism toward long gold positions is certainly warranted. As is often the case with markets though, the sentiment may finally have swung too  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold tentatively backs off from highs ahead of Fed

Updated  Jan 27, 2016 11:10:00 AM


Gold backed off from its latest highs but maintained much of its recent strength on Wednesday ahead of the Federal Reserve’s afternoon FOMC statement, where market participants will be closely watching for clues as to the anticipated pace of rising interest rates after last month’s rate hike. Since that December rate hike, renewed volatility has shaken global equity markets and concerns over worldwide economic conditions have deepened, especially with regard to China. These circumstances have  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold: where to next?

Updated  Jan 25, 2016 1:20:00 PM


Gold has been quietly edging higher in recent weeks and today finds itself at just shy of $1110 per troy ounce. From its low point in December to the high it hit earlier this month, the metal has tacked on a good $65 or just over 6 per cent. Gold’s recovery has been driven almost exclusively by a rise in risk aversion, for the US dollar has also risen during this period. Global stocks have  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold bounces on return of stock market volatility

Updated  Jan 13, 2016 3:30:00 PM


The price of gold received a lift on Wednesday afternoon as volatility returned to European and US stock markets. Earlier this week, the yellow metal had fallen from recent highs as stocks regained a measure of stability after global equity markets dropped precipitously during the first trading week of the year. Traditionally, gold has been perceived as a safe haven asset that investors turn to during times of market turmoil. While this correlation has often  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold erases overnight gains as stocks stabilise, NFP eyed

Updated  Jan 8, 2016 7:20:00 AM


Gold rallied to a fresh nine-week high of $1112 in overnight trading before dropping by a good $15 to trade back below $1100 at the time of this writing. The People’s Bank of China fixed the USD/CNY lower a day after the Chinese authorities decided to abort the circuit breaker after it was triggered twice this week following the big drops in Chinese stocks. This, as well as short-covering ahead of today’s US jobs report  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold regains status as safe haven asset again?

Updated  Jan 5, 2016 7:30:00 AM


Gold has finally responded to the falling equity markets rather than the volatility in the dollar at the start of this year, possibly reviving its role a safe haven asset. However, it is early days still and the lack of a more significant rally makes me wonder whether this latest rise will prove to be another ‘dead-cat’ bounce. Global stock markets have fallen sharply at the start of this year and although Wall Street staged  [...] Continue Reading ...
