Gold echoes cagey market sentiment

Updated  May 19, 2017 11:15:13 AM


The price of gold fell yesterday as risk sentiment improved following sharp falls in the equity markets the day before. The dollar bounced back thanks to better-than-expected readings in the Philly Fed Manufacturing Index and weekly US unemployment claims while a mini flash crash in the GBP/USD pair also helped to underpin the Dollar Index, which in turn increased the pressure on gold. Today however, the dollar is once again weaker while equities were slightly  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold up as dollar stalls ahead of US CPI, retail sales

Updated  May 12, 2017 8:01:13 AM


The dollar buying witnessed at the start of the week was driven by rising expectations about a June rate hike following last week’s FOMC statement and a solid US monthly jobs report. But the greenback’s bullish run then paused in midweek amid the lack of any further stimulus. Today, market participants will finally have some top tier data at their disposal. The headline consumer price index measure of inflation will be the key figure to  [...] Continue Reading ...


Commodities: metals, crude oil rebound

Updated  May 11, 2017 1:51:10 PM


Commodity prices are firmer today with base and especially precious metals ending a bad run off losses, while crude oil has extended its gains from the day before when it rallied sharply on the back of the weekly US oil inventories report. Precious metals have been supported by a number of factors today, not least profit-taking given the extent of the recent bearish run. In addition, the US dollar’s sharp rally at the start  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold still pressured as dollar stays supported and risk appetite remains high

Updated  May 10, 2017 11:45:00 AM


A mild shake-up in US markets occurred late on Tuesday after two potential risk events surfaced: President Trump unexpectedly fired FBI Director James Comey, and a North Korean official issued a threat of more nuclear tests. As of Wednesday morning, however, these incidents have not significantly deterred a continuing risk-on market environment and recent rebound for the US dollar. While US stocks were modestly down and the dollar was relatively flat overall on Wednesday morning,  [...] Continue Reading ...


GOLD: Commodities stage small rebound ahead of NFP, French elections

Updated  May 5, 2017 7:38:59 AM


The first trading week of May is about to end, which means all of the attention will be on the US non-farm payrolls data. Well, that would have been the case had it not been for the small matter of the French elections at the weekend and also this week's collapse in commodity prices. Gold, silver, copper and iron ore, as well as crude oil prices, have all fallen sharply on a combination of worries  [...] Continue Reading ...


FOMC: Dollar rises, gold extends fall after Fed policy statement

Updated  May 3, 2017 4:00:00 PM


The highly anticipated May FOMC statement was issued on Wednesday, and the results were mostly in-line with expectations. The Fed Funds rate remained unchanged at 0.75-1.00%, as widely expected, after a unanimous vote. One moderate surprise, however, was found in the Fed’s discussion of its balance sheet policy. Although there had been some chatter prior to the meeting that the Fed may be looking to reduce its massive asset holdings, Wednesday’s FOMC statement once again  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold approaches key levels ahead of FOMC, NFP

Updated  May 2, 2017 12:29:23 PM


Precious metals started the new trading week and month lower yesterday after falling in the last two weeks of April. Both metals were trading lower again at the time of this writing; gold was trading around $1255 and silver $16.80 per troy ounce. During the last couple of weeks of April, the Dollar Index also fell, chiefly due to a sharp rally in the EUR/USD and GBP/USD currency pairs. The euro rose on the back  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold pressured further as market risk perceptions remain subdued

Updated  May 1, 2017 3:00:00 PM


Despite a generally lagging US dollar, the price of gold continued to drop on the first day of May after having fallen for the past two weeks since mid-April’s year-to-date peak just below the $1300 handle. This sustained fall for gold can be attributed in part to rallying equity markets and low perceptions of market risk, which have significantly decreased the demand for safe-haven assets like gold and the Japanese yen. A highly-positive earnings season  [...] Continue Reading ...


Macron/Le Pen win French election first round – euro surges

Updated  Apr 23, 2017 7:30:00 PM


With most of the votes for the first round of the French presidential election reported late on Sunday, the outcome has emerged very much as pre-vote polling had suggested. Centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen have been voted through to advance to the second and final round of voting, set for May 7th. Though it was a close race to the very end, first round votes eliminated both the conservative candidate Francois  [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold to remain supported as focus turns to Frexit from Brexit

Updated  Mar 29, 2017 1:17:25 PM


Today's triggering of Brexit Article 50 by the UK government was expected and as such it didn’t come as surprise to investors. Consequently, the markets hardly reacted to the news. However, if negotiations start going bad then that may trigger a risk off response at some point. As well as a drop in the pound, safe haven gold could surge higher, possibly similar to how it responded in reaction to the Brexit vote back in  [...] Continue Reading ...
