  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Rebound Might Be Coming to an End

    January 23, 2015, 12:34 PM

    We saw yet another day of appreciation yesterday. This was on increased volume but not by very much compared with the day before. Does this suggest that Bitcoin might go up further or are there indications that lower prices are to be seen?

  • European QE, Gold and the Swiss Franc

    January 22, 2015, 4:22 PM

    The beginning of the 2015 abounded in extremely important central banks’ actions: the Swiss National Bank’s (SNB) decision to abolish the exchange-rate floor and introduction of quantitative easing by the European Central Bank’s (ECB). What these events imply for the global economy and the gold market?

  • Forex Trading Alert: Europe In Focus

    January 22, 2015, 11:12 AM

    Earlier today, the European Central Bank launched its large-scale buying of government bonds, a policy known as quantitative easing program. ECB will purchase €60 billion per month, starting in March and continuing until late 2016. Additionally, ECB kept its main lending rate unchanged at 0.05% and a separate rate on overnight bank deposits stored with the central bank at minus 0.2%, which means that banks will have to pay a fee to keep surplus funds at the ECB. In these circumstances, EUR/USD declined sharply, approaching the recent low. What’s next?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Indexes Remain Within Medium-Term Consolidation – Which Direction Is Next?

    January 22, 2015, 7:41 AM

    S&P 500 index extended its short-term rebound as investors reacted to quarterly earnings, economic data releases. Will this uptrend continue?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Will Gold Break Out Once Again?

    January 21, 2015, 12:25 PM

    Gold rallied once again yesterday and so did silver and mining stocks. The question is if the rally is about to pause or end, since the mining stocks are not really outperforming gold and the USD Index has just confirmed the breakout above the 2005 high. Today's alert features our take on this critical situation and special comments for traders.

  • Is Gold Pro-cyclical or Anti-cyclical?

    January 20, 2015, 1:18 PM

    The recent drop in commodity prices may signal the possible recession. To understand what may happen in the gold market in the near future, we analyze the performance of gold through the business cycle. Does gold sync with stocks and other assets? Is gold pro-cyclical or anti-cyclical?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Still in a Bearish Environment

    January 20, 2015, 10:01 AM

    We saw Bitcoin move above a possible declining trend line. This is a positive sign but it might not be as positive as it looks at first sight. Read this alert to learn our opinion on that.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Dollar’s Major Breakout and Gold's Simultaneous Rally

    January 19, 2015, 2:29 PM

    Gold soared on Friday once again and so did the USD Index. It was yet another day of the two rallying together, which is a very bullish development. What’s next?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Breakout or a Single-Event-Driven Upswing?

    January 15, 2015, 11:51 AM

    We saw another daily reversal in gold yesterday, during which gold touched its declining medium-term resistance line. Gold broke above this level early today, so we have a breakout. With gold trading above this important line it’s critical to take into account the reason behind it and to remember that waiting for a confirmation of a given move proved to be profitable many times in the past.

  • Forex Trading Alert: Swiss Franc Shoots Up!

    January 15, 2015, 11:47 AM

    Earlier today, Switzerland's central bank decided to scrap its policy of capping the Swiss franc at 1.20 to the euro, which boosted the Swiss franc against other currencies. As a result, EUR/CHF dropped under a very important support level, which triggered a sharp decline that approached the exchange rate to the levels that we saw in 2011. How much more room to decline does the pair have?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Negative Expectations Following Swiss National Bank Decision To Unpeg Its Currency

    January 15, 2015, 11:13 AM

    The S&P 500 index extended its recent move down slightly. Will this downtrend continue?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil – Another Fresh Low

    January 14, 2015, 1:54 PM

    Although ongoing worries over a glut in global supplies pushed crude oil to a fresh 2015 low, the commodity rebounded, finishing day above $46 per barrel. Is it another one-day rally or something more?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Pause in the Decline Might Be Close

    January 14, 2015, 11:40 AM

    Yesterday ended in stark depreciation with Bitcoin losing over 15% compared with the previous close. The volume exploded to over to a level last seen around the local bottom in the early days of October 2014. But the move didn’t really look like a bottom, rather a beginning of a further slide. All this suggests that there might be further depreciation. But there are also other indications. Read about them in this alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Beginning of an Extremely Important Decline

    January 13, 2015, 12:28 PM

    We've seen a strong and volatile move down. Bitcoin has taken a significant dive, losing some 13% and the volume has ballooned to the highest level since the Jan. 4 plunge. There are important implications for our short-term outlook.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Dark Clouds Over Crude Oil

    January 12, 2015, 1:55 PM

    On Friday, crude oil lost 1.45% as worries over a glut in global supplies continued to weigh on the price. In these circumstances, light crude approached the recent low, finishing the day slightly above $48. Will April’s 2009 lows pause oil bears for longer?

Gold Market Overview

Is gold a hedge that rallies when stocks are falling or is gold now a risk-on / risk-off asset just like the stock market? Gold’s performance through business cycles has always been an important issue, but with tumbling crude oil prices in a freefall, it’s become very timely.
The decline in crude oil prices has more implications than most investors think – there is even a very important, yet overlooked link to the part of the bond market.
