Gold up for sixth day as stocks, dollar remain on shaky footing

Updated  Mar 22, 2017 2:25:39 PM

Gold was a tad lower first thing this morning – understandably so after Tuesday’s big rally – before turning positive in the afternoon. The precious metal is now up for the sixth consecutive day and has made back almost the entire losses suffered earlier in the month. I am expecting gold to rise further. Wall Street is on a shaky footing, which could very well keep demand for perceived safe haven assets high.  [...] Continue Reading ...

FOMC Recap – Rates rise but gradual path remains

Updated  Mar 15, 2017 4:30:00 PM

As widely expected, this week’s two-day FOMC meeting resulted in the first rate hike of the year on Wednesday – a quarter-point rise up to 0.75%-1.00%. Despite expectations of a potentially faster pace of tightening going forward, the Fed’s “dot plot” outlook for the path of rate hikes in 2017 was essentially unchanged, with the median projection remaining at three quarter-point increases in 2017, which includes today’s hike. In raising rates, the Fed cited a  [...] Continue Reading ...

FOMC Preview – It’s all in the dots

Updated  Mar 14, 2017 2:20:00 PM

The market expectations for a quarter-point interest rate hike by the US Federal Reserve on Wednesday afternoon when it concludes its March FOMC meeting have reached levels of near-certainty. The futures markets have now priced in around a 93% likelihood that the Fed Funds rate will be increased on Wednesday for the first time this year and the third time in over ten years – up to 0.75-1.00%. With this virtual inevitability already largely baked  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold sits on major support ahead of key risk events, FOMC

Updated  Mar 13, 2017 4:30:00 PM

Gold is currently trading just above the major $1200 psychological support level on Monday, ahead of a busy week filled with central bank decisions and potential geopolitical risks. The price of gold has fallen sharply since late February as dramatically-increasing expectations of a March rate hike by the US Federal Reserve has weakened demand for the non-yielding asset, while a market environment characterized by persistently elevated risk appetite has diminished gold’s safe-haven appeal. A small  [...] Continue Reading ...

Dollar falls, gold bounces after jobs beat – focus shifts to pace of Fed hikes

Updated  Mar 10, 2017 10:45:00 AM

The US jobs report for February came in substantially better than expected on Friday, although a high reading had already been anticipated by the markets given Wednesday’s exceptionally positive ADP private employment data. The US Labor Department reported on Friday that 235,000 jobs were added in February against prior (post-ADP) expectations of around 200,000. Furthermore, January’s number was revised up from an already-high 227,000 to 238,000. The unemployment rate came in at 4.7%, in-line with  [...] Continue Reading ...

NFP Preview: US jobs report likely a mere formality before March rate hike

Updated  Mar 9, 2017 1:30:00 PM

The US jobs report for February is set to be released on Friday morning, just a few days before the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meets and announces its interest rate decision next Wednesday. Unlike previous jobs reports, this Friday’s non-farm payrolls (NFP) data should serve as little more than a mere formality before the Fed very likely institutes its first rate hike of 2017 next week. That is, of course, unless the jobs data  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold pressure increases as stellar jobs report reinforces March rate hike

Updated  Mar 8, 2017 3:30:00 PM

Gold further extended its recent breakdown on Wednesday after the ADP private employment release reported a stellar 298,000 US private-sector jobs added in February, the highest increase since April 2014 and far higher than the ~185,000 expected. While the ADP report is not necessarily a very accurate predictor of the US Labor Department’s official non-farm payrolls (NFP) data to be released on Friday, it is certainly an indication of significant improvement in the overall employment  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold: could precious metals bounce back?

Updated  Mar 7, 2017 12:54:01 PM

Thanks to a generally stronger dollar amid heightened expectations of a faster tightening cycle from the Fed, market participants have apparently reduced their holdings in buck-denominated precious metals. At the time of this writing, gold and silver were both trading lower for the second consecutive day, extending their declines from last week. Gold was finding no support from a pause in the stock market rally either. But could the metals bounce back as we head  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold tentatively breaks down as Fed signals March hike, market complacency reigns

Updated  Mar 3, 2017 2:45:00 PM

The price of gold extended this week’s losses early on Friday as several Federal Reserve officials, including Fed Chair Janet Yellen, signaled in prepared speeches the likelihood of a mid-March rate hike. Specifically, Yellen said, "at our meeting later this month, the committee will evaluate whether employment and inflation are continuing to evolve in line with our expectations, in which case a further adjustment of the federal funds rate would likely be appropriate." Earlier in  [...] Continue Reading ...

Increased Fed chatter keeps dollar well-supported

Updated  Mar 2, 2017 1:00:00 PM

The US dollar continued to be well-supported and gold remained pressured on Thursday as confidence in a mid-March interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve intensified further. In a media interview on Thursday, Fed Governor Jerome Powell said that “the case for a rate increase for March has come together.” This sentiment echoes a series of recent hawkish remarks by other Fed officials in support of an impending rate hike. A day earlier, even the  [...] Continue Reading ...
