  • Gold and Real Interest Rate

    October 20, 2014, 12:52 PM

    Does gold respond to the inflation or rather to the real interest rate? Paul Krugman said once that the reason behind the high real price of gold between 2001 and 2011 was low real interest rates, not the expected inflation. Is he right and are real interest rates really the main driver of the yellow metal price? How do they affect the gold market?

    October 20, 2014, 12:36 PM

    On Friday, crude oil climbed above $84 supported by upbeat U.S. data. Despite this increase, light crude gave up gains and finally lost 0.19% as concerns over bigger-than-expected increase in crude oil inventories continued to weight. Will we see a rebound in this environment?

    October 17, 2014, 11:15 AM

    Bitcoin stayed below $400 yesterday and, in fact, today we’ve seen a move down. There has been an important change compared with the previous couple of days, though.

    October 14, 2014, 10:58 AM

    We saw an important move yesterday, when Bitcoin moved above $400. The move happened together with an explosion in volume, which made the move all the more important. Today, the direction has been upheld. But Bitcoin has gone up far and fast lately. Is it time to take profits off the table?

  • Gold and Federal Funds Rate

    October 13, 2014, 6:05 AM

    Many investors believe that the federal funds rate is adversely related to the gold price. Interest rate cuts are perceived as a sign of cheap money policy – a bullish signal in the gold market. Similarly, the rise of the federal funds rate is considered as detrimental for gold prices. However, it seems that real interest rates are more important than nominal ones. Are changes in the federal funds rate a good predictor of gold prices, then?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bumpy Ride for Bitcoin Traders

    October 10, 2014, 11:56 AM

    We saw an explosion in volume yesterday. More than Bitcoin went up in the direction of $400, reversing later on. The change in short-term trend is now very well visible, but the recent turn (yesterday) was down. What does this mean for Bitcoin investors?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Huge Reversal in USD and Gold – Finally!

    October 7, 2014, 2:57 PM

  • Oil Trading Alert: Quite a Lot Happened Last Week – Did as Much Changed?

    October 6, 2014, 12:39 PM

    In short, the answer to the title question is that actually not much has changed – at least not since our last Oil Trading Alert was posted. There was a huge reversal on Thursday, and its implications remain in place also today, even though the crude oil price moved a bit lower on Friday (in fact, at the moment of writing these words, crude oil is back above the $90 level). The one thing that changed, though, are the implications coming from the analysis of weekly volume. You will find more details in today's Oil Trading Alert.
