  • 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.

    April 9, 2014, 5:01 AM

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

If you want to know our take on this question, we invite you to read our today's Oil Trading Alert.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Time for a Breather?

    April 2, 2014, 2:56 PM

    Generally, everything that we wrote in our previous alerts remains up-to-date – precious metals are likely to move lower in the coming weeks – and the thing that we would like to emphasize today is that even if we see an upward correction, it will likely not be anything more than just that – a correction. Why? Because of the confirmed breakouts and breakdowns. You'll find details in today's alert.

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.
