A Gold-en Anchor on Prices

Updated  Jul 24, 2015 9:10:00 AM

By far the biggest storyline in the markets this week has been the precipitous fall in the price of gold. After closing just below key support at the 1140 level last week, bullish traders panicked this week, driving the yellow metal down by a whopping 5% from last Friday’s close as of writing. Interestingly, today’s drop has occurred despite a disappointing drop in China’s Markit Flash Manufacturing PMI data. The broad measure of manufacturing  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold selling unlikely to be over just yet

Updated  Jul 21, 2015 7:00:00 AM

Precious metals have stabilised a little after Monday’s vicious bear onslaught, which saw gold drop by a huge $45 in the space of a few minutes during the Asian session. That was apparently sparked by large sell volumes on the gold exchange in Shanghai. While the extent of the sell-off has surprised even us, we nevertheless had been warning about a move of this magnitude for several weeks, most notably on Wednesday (see “Gold  [...] Continue Reading ...

Crude: ‘black gold’ to follow footsteps of yellow gold?

Updated  Jul 20, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Commodities have been in the receiving end of the bear blitz in recent weeks.  Traders have been worried about the impact of the appreciating US dollar and falling confidence in China, with the world’s second largest economy being a major consumer of gold, oil and Iron ore among other basic materials. Unless you've been living under a rock, you would know about the huge $45 drop in the value of gold in overnight trading in  [...] Continue Reading ...

XAUUSD: thin and volatile conditions in Asia

Updated  Jul 20, 2015 12:58:22 AM

Despite a lack of market moving events or data releases it has been a very volatile day in FX and commodity markets in Asia. The action began with a huge 4% drop in the price of gold, with XAUUSD reaching its lowest level in over five years. It looks like a combination of heavily selling in China – shortly after the open 5 tonnes was dumped on the Shanghai Gold exchange - and widespread US  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold on the brink as Yellen talks up 2015 rate hike prospects

Updated  Jul 15, 2015 11:00:00 AM

The price of gold has fallen sharply once again today. Undoubtedly, the latest catalyst for the slide has been Janet Yellen’s hawkish comments which have helped to underpin the dollar and undermine some buck-denominated commodities. In a prepared statement before testifying to Congress, the Federal Reserve chief sounded optimistic about the US economy, describing the outlook as "favourable." She also reiterated her view that the Fed is likely to hike rates later this year if  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold on the verge as investors price out Grexit risks

Updated  Jul 13, 2015 1:30:00 PM

Not that the unfolding of the Greek crisis lent gold any noticeable support in recent weeks, but now that a bailout deal has been struck investors may move back into riskier assets such as equities which could see the precious metal fall further out of favour. Not only that, the dollar is also on the rise, which is even more bad news for some buck-denominated commodities. The US currency has been supported by expectations about  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold: It’s Groundhog Day All Over Again for Frustrated Bulls

Updated  Jul 6, 2015 9:20:00 AM

Last week, we analyzed the (lack of) safe haven demand for gold in the wake of Greece’s deteriorating debt negotiations, noting that the yellow metal …[was] dramatically lagging its safe-haven rivals” and that “this week’s lackluster reaction suggests that gold may be losing its luster and on the verge of a big breakdown” (see “Gold: Safe Haven No More?”). Gold subsequently dropped to a new nearly 4-month low at 1156 on Thursday before recovering  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold: moment of truth

Updated  Jul 2, 2015 12:10:00 PM

We have repeatedly commented that gold’s near term outlook does not look bright because of the apparent lack of interest from investors worried about the crisis in Greece. Whereas the European stock markets have fallen quite dramatically in response to the deteriorating Greek situation, the precious metal has barely shown much reaction. Admittedly, this has been in part because of the strength of the US dollars, which has been climbing steadily higher this week in  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold: Safe Haven No More?

Updated  Jun 30, 2015 2:25:00 PM

One of the big themes we’ve been exploring this week as the Greek debt negotiations deteriorate (see my colleague Kathleen Brooks’ latest analysis of the situation here) is the appeal of so-called “safe haven” assets. Most traditional safe haven assets are acting as expected, with money flowing into the Japanese yen, US dollar, US Treasury bonds, and the Swiss franc (though the SNB’s decision to intervene in its currency may redirect some  [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold extends drop as risk appetite improves

Updated  Jun 23, 2015 10:35:00 AM

Gold has fallen quite sharply at the start of this week after rallying to a sturdy area of resistance at the end of last week – more on this later. The yellow precious metal is driven lower by a combination of factors, not least the significantly stronger appetite for riskier assets due to raised hopes over a deal for Greece. After the Greek government blinked at the weekend, investors were hoping for a resolution as  [...] Continue Reading ...
