  • Forex Trading Alert: Weak U.S. Housing Data Supports Euro

    April 23, 2014, 3:17 PM

    Earlier today, the common currency moved higher against the U.S. dollar after data showed that the euro zone manufacturing PMI rose to 53.3 in April from 53.0 in the previous month (while analysts had expected an unchanged reading). Later in the day, the Commerce Department showed that sales on new homes dropped 14.5%, which supported the euro as well. Whether these positive numbers are in line with the technical picture of EUR/USD?

  • Oil Trading Alert: How Far Down Could Crude Oil Go?

    April 23, 2014, 1:13 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil lost 1.78% as concerns over another build in U.S. crude oil inventories overshadowed ongoing fears over tensions between Russia and Ukraine. Because of these circumstances, light crude declined sharply and invalidated the breakout above the medium-term resistance line. Will this strong bearish signal trigger further deterioration in the coming days? Which important support could stop sellers?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Miners Outperform Once Again

    April 23, 2014, 11:16 AM

    Yesterday’s price action in the precious metals market might seem perplexing to some investors and there’s good reason for it. Gold declined, but silver didn’t, and mining stocks actually managed to rally more than 1%. In today's alert we examine what actually happened and what's likely to happen next in this "strange" environment.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Lack of Action but Not of Signals

    April 22, 2014, 2:25 PM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin edged lower on relatively low volume. The currency ended the day below $500. There was no significant action. Today, we’ve seen more of the same. Is there anything different this time?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Action in Platinum

    April 22, 2014, 2:19 PM

    The precious metals sector moved lower at the beginning of the week which coincided with a small move higher in the USD Index. There were no meaningful breakdowns / breakouts, though – with the exception of the platinum market. Let's see how much the latter changed, and why we haven't seen more of the same action in the rest of the sector.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Will News from Ukraine Push Crude Oil Above $105?

    April 18, 2014, 1:32 PM

    On Thursday, crude oil gained 0.76% as the escalating conflict in Ukraine weighted on the price. Thanks to this news, light crude bounced off an important support/resistance line. Will it increase further with the tensions in the background? Does yesterday growth change the outlook for the commodity?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Important Implications of Going Down

    April 18, 2014, 1:29 PM

    Bitcoin moved lower yesterday but the bearish short-term outlook was not confirmed by an increase in volume – the trading yesterday was significant but weaker than on the day before. Has anything changed today as Bitcoin is now below $500 on both BitStamp and BTC-e?

  • Forex Trading Alert: GBP/USD – Breakout or Fakeout?

    April 17, 2014, 4:13 PM

    Earlier today, the British pound extended gains and hit a 4-1/2 year high against the greenback as upbeat U.K. employment data released on Wednesday still weighted on the pair. Thanks to these circumstances, GBP/USD broke above the important resistance zone. Despite this bullish sign, the exchange rate reversed. Will the buyers manage to close the day above the previous 2014 high?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Oil Bulls Win for Now, but Will This Last?

    April 16, 2014, 2:44 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil gained 0.22% as stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data weighted on the price. Thanks to these solid numbers, the commodity closed the day above the medium-term resistance line, but how reliable this breakout is?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: What Goes Up Might Come Down

    April 16, 2014, 7:16 AM

    Bitcoin went up yesterday on strong volume, further erasing the previous week’s losses. The move was strong but Bitcoin didn’t make it to $500. Today, the appreciation continues but is it really a good time to go long?

  • Forex Trading Alert: EUR/USD – Battle of the Support Line. Who Will Win?

    April 16, 2014, 7:15 AM

    The common currency declined against the U.S. dollar after stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data. Earlier today, the Labor Department showed that the CPI rose 0.2% in March (above expectations for a 0.1% increase), while the core consumer price index (without volatile food and energy items) rose 0.2% last month (also above forecast of a 0.1% gain). Thanks to these better-than-expected numbers, the exchange rate tested the strength of the major support line. Will it stop sellers?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Silver and Miners Still Disappoint

    April 15, 2014, 1:51 PM

    Silver paused and mining stocks moved just a little higher yesterday. The latter barely erased Friday’s declines and did so on relatively low volume. This is bearish daily action and if we take the last 3 trading days into account, we also get bearish implications. The reason is that overall gold moved higher, while mining stocks declined on average. Gold, however, moved visibly higher - is the main precious metal leading the way at this time?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Is the Plunge Over Yet?

    April 14, 2014, 11:46 AM

    S&P 500 the lowest since half of February. Stocks remain in a downtrend, but may correct their recent move down.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Is Recent Rally in Crude Oil Running Out of Steam?

    April 14, 2014, 11:44 AM

    On Friday, crude oil hit a fresh five-week high as better-than-expected U.S. macroeconomic data weighted on the price. Despite this improvement, light crude gave up the gains and reversed as day before. Is the recent rally in crude oil running out of steam?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Silver Finally Outperforms – How Bullish Is That?

    April 11, 2014, 5:13 PM

    Silver moved above the previous April highs yesterday and it finally outperformed gold and mining stocks (it was not hard to outperform the latter as miners declined). So... we saw a strong bullish signal (white metals sometimes lead the yellow one)... Or did we? In mid-March it was silver's outperformance that marked the final top and the beginning of a significant decline. You'll find our take on the situation in today's alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: This Move Up in Bitcoin Might Be a Fake One

    April 11, 2014, 5:13 PM

    Bitcoin declined heavily yesterday. It went more than 15% down compared with the previous day’s close and there was an explosion in volume. This was a classic slump but today the price has gone up, recovering most of yesterday's losses. Is this a good time to go long? Read this alert to get to know our opinion.

  • Forex Trading Alert: GBP/USD - Double Top or Further Rally?

    April 11, 2014, 7:58 AM

    Earlier today, the greenback moved higher against the British pound after better-than-expected jobless claims data, which showed that the number of people filing for initial jobless benefits in the week ending April 4 declined to an almost seven year low. Will this drop in British currency trigger a bigger correction? What is the technical picture of cable? We invite you to read our today's Forex Trading Alert.

  • Interest Rate Hikes on the Horizon? Not Likely.

    April 9, 2014, 10:25 AM

    In my previous essay I discussed the link between gold and real rates. Today I will focus on the rates themselves. From time to time we can hear that the rates are about to be raised, or that investors fear the "inevitable" interest rate hike. Just how inevitable can it be, if we have been hearing about it for years now and seen none at all? What does this have to do with gold? I invite you to read today's April-Market-Overview-based essay and find out.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Are We About to See another Move down?

    April 9, 2014, 5:01 AM

    Yesterday, the implications of volume were different for traders on BitStamp and BTC-e. Is this confirmed by the action today? What kind of short-term outlook prevails at the moment? Read our alert to find out.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Important Resistance Broken. What’s Next?

    April 8, 2014, 5:26 AM

    Crude oil gained 0.63% on Friday as solid jobs report and doubts over the oil export from Libya pushed the price higher. In this way, light crude broke above an important resistance level and closed the day above $101 per barrel. Will crude oil extend gains in the near future? If you want to know our take on this question, we invite you to read our today's Oil Trading Alert.

  • Stock Trading Alert: Friday’s selloff – new downtrend or just a short-term pullback?

    April 7, 2014, 8:30 AM

    S&P 500 has reversed lower after setting new record high. Technology stocks slammed hardest, as Nasdaq 100 lost 2.7% on Friday.

  • Stock Trading Alert: Stocks continue long-term uptrend

    April 3, 2014, 3:31 PM

  • Forex Trading Alert: U.S. Dollar Extends Gains

    April 3, 2014, 3:30 PM

    Earlier today, the U.S. currency moved higher against the euro as the European Central Bank left its benchmark interest rate unchanged (at a record-low 0.25%) and later ECB President Mario Draghi comments weighted on the common currency. What happened with other currency pairs? What is their current outlook? If you want to know our take on this question, we invite you to read our today's Forex Trading Alert.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Extends Losses

    April 3, 2014, 5:51 AM

    On Wednesday, crude oil lost 0.42% as fears about sluggish demand and talks between the Libyan government and protestors weighted on the price. Because of these circumstances, light crude declined for the third time in a row and closed the day slightly above $99 per barrel.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Drops Below $100

    April 2, 2014, 2:56 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil lost 1.84% as expectations for an eleventh straight weekly increase in domestic crude stockpiles weighed on the price. In this way, light crude declined below $100 a barrel for the first time in a week and closed the day at $99.69.

Feb Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

In the recent years, the Federal Reserve dropped inflationary bombs on the market and some commentators believed that the US dollar would soon evaporate. It hasn't and, in fact, the USD Index has been moving higher since 2008. Why? How is that possible given all the dollars that have been "printed" since that time? Doesn't the basic law of supply and demand work anymore? In the February 2014 Market Overview we analyze this critical issue and - as always - we discuss the implications for the gold market.
