  • 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.

  • Forex Trading Alert: U.S. Dollar Remains Mixed

    April 1, 2014, 8:59 AM

Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar declined against its Australian counterpart after the Reserve Bank of Australia left interest rates unchanged.

We invite you to read our today's Forex Trading Alert.

    March 26, 2014, 8:00 AM

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Confirmation of a Breakdown

    March 24, 2014, 4:51 PM

    Friday was generally a calm day in the precious metals market and for the currency indices. The initial moves higher (in the early part of the session) were mostly invalidated later on and overall not much changed at the first sight. On second look, the lack of rally confirmed the breakdown in mining stocks. What's next?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Stocks continue to fluctuate as investors react to mixed news

    March 21, 2014, 3:04 PM

    Yesterday Bitcoin slipped below $600 and closed the day below that level. This is an important piece of information since this was the first daily close below $600 since Mar. 2. The short-term outlook became more bearish than not. Taking today's action into account, is the short-term outlook bearish enough to justify opening short positions in our opinion?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: First Breakdown

    March 20, 2014, 5:02 PM

    The dollar’s rally and the precious metals’ decline were seen right after comments from the Fed about the planned $10 billion cut in asset purchases. They will now amount to “only” $55 billion per month.

    The dollar’s rally and the precious metals’ decline had already been seen in the charts and the Fed comments served as a catalyst. The situation in gold and mining stocks had already been overbought on a short-term basis, so a decline here might not have changed anything… But it actually has - just not for all the parts of the precious metals sector. The situation is complex but we think it provides us with a potentially profitable opportunity.

    March 20, 2014, 10:05 AM

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: PMs Decline on Huge Volume

    March 18, 2014, 1:05 PM

    Gold, silver and mining stocks declined yesterday. Even though the key support lines were not broken, we saw some invalidations of the previous breakouts, which invalidations were bearish signs on their own. How much did that change? How does it relate to the situation in Ukraine and the outcome of the referendum and what everyone's doing about it? The situation is complex, but in our opinion there's a way to position oneself in this environment.

  • Forex Trading Alert: U.S. Dollar Rebounds Slightly

    March 18, 2014, 1:00 PM

    Earlier today, the U.S. dollar increased against the British pound to nearly five-week high after U.S. economic data, which showed that the number of building permits issued in the U.S. rose to a four-month high in February, rebounding after a sharp drop in January. What impact did it have on major currency pairs? If you want to know our take on this question, we invite you to read our today's Forex Trading Alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Tension Building Up in the Bitcoin Market

    March 18, 2014, 12:40 PM

    The move down has picked up in the last two days. Yesterday, Bitcoin was down, a second day of increasing volume. Overall, yesterday there was more action than during the preceding days. Today, the volume is even higher. Is this enough to support short positions? Read this alert to learn our opinion.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Still Remains Below $100

    March 17, 2014, 2:49 PM

    On Friday, crude oil gained 0.78% as Sunday's closely-watched referendum in Ukraine’s Crimea region and the IEA forecast weighted on the price.

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.
