  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Trading Flat but Not Flatlined for Good

    March 14, 2014, 3:33 PM

    The price divergence between BitStamp and BTC-e seems to be over. On the other hand, the changes in volume levels differ on either exchange. Does this have any short-term implications at the moment? Read this alert to get to know our opinion.

  • Can Gold and Interest Rates Move Higher at the Same Time?

    March 14, 2014, 8:31 AM

    Some time ago we read predictions that if you expected gold to come closer to $2,000 per ounce, then you should see interest rates coming under the one percent level first.

    Is this really the case? Is the relationship between gold and interest rates really carved in stone?

  • Forex Trading Alert: U.S. Dollar Gains After Initial Jobless Claims Data

    March 13, 2014, 3:01 PM

    The U.S. dollar rebounded from a fresh 2014 low after stronger-than-expected data on U.S. retail sales and initial jobless claims. The Commerce Department reported that retail sales rose 0.3% in February (above expectations for an increase of 0.2%), while the Department of Labor showed in its report that initial claims for jobless benefits decreased by 9,000 (while analysts had expected an increase of 6,000) to a three month low of 315,000 last week. 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.

  • Stock Trading Alert: Stocks extend consolidation as investors hesitate

    March 13, 2014, 1:30 PM

    Indexes continue sideways trend. S&P 500 still close to last week’s all-time high.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Extends Losses

    March 13, 2014, 7:14 AM

    On Wednesday, crude oil lost 1.46% after the EIA showed in its weekly report a much larger-than-expected build in domestic stockpiles. An additional bearish factor which pushed the price lower was an announcement that the U.S. government plans to sell oil from its Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Thanks to this news, light crude dropped to its lowest level since Feb.7, finishing the day slightly above $98 per barrel.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Drops Below $100

    March 12, 2014, 3:26 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil lost 1.39% as concerns over a slowdown in China and rising U.S. stockpiles weighed on the price. Because of these circumstances, light crude declined below the psychological barrier of $100 per barrel for the first time since mid-February.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Copper’s Breakdown

    March 12, 2014, 3:23 PM

    While there was not much going on in the precious metals market, quite a lot happened in copper. It declined heavily and moved below the 2013 lows. This might not seem an important event from the precious metals investor's point of view, but that is only until you consider the fact that copper has often led gold higher or lower in the past. Read today's alert for more details.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Hovering above $600

    March 11, 2014, 2:27 PM

    The action on BitStamp was unimpressively flat yesterday. The currency edged down on volume higher than on the day before. The increase in volume was not accompanied by a more decisive move. Did the short-term outlook change? Read this alert to learn our opinion.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Silver below $21

    March 10, 2014, 3:07 PM

    Silver declined heavily on Friday and we saw moves lower in gold and mining stocks as well. What's particularly important about these moves is that they materialized on high volume. The low-volume-upswings-and-high-volume-downswings pattern heralds greater declines, but tensions in Ukraine are growing. What's an investor and trader to do given these contradictory signals?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Short-term uncertainty as indexes fluctuate near record highs

    March 10, 2014, 9:12 AM

    S&P 500 still close to all-time high. Flat correction within uptrend or topping consolidation pattern?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Alleged Bitcoin Creator Denies Any Involvement

    March 7, 2014, 11:39 AM

    The media frenzy surrounding the supposed discovery of the Bitcoin creator continues. The man Newsweek claims to be the creator of the currency, denied having any involvement with Bitcoin and claimed he hadn’t heard of Bitcoin until recently.

    Meanwhile, there has been some action today, to the downside. Has it been significant enough to change the short-term outlook to bearish? Read the alert to learn our opinion.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Declines Sharply

    March 6, 2014, 2:02 PM

    On Wednesday, crude oil lost 2.27% as tensions cooled in Ukraine and U.S. supply data missed investors’ expectations. Because of these circumstances, light crude erased all its gains from Monday's jump and dropped below $101 per barrel.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Gold Fails to Rally

    March 5, 2014, 12:23 PM

    As you know, we had been expecting the tensions in Ukraine to cause a significant rally in gold (not necessarily in the rest of the precious metals sector). Not only wasn’t that the case on Monday – the rally indeed took place, but it was rather average, but gold managed to decline on Tuesday while there was no visible improvement in the situation in Ukraine and on the Crimea peninsula.

    Does this mean that the rally is over? Read today's alert and find out.

  • Stock Trading Alert: Relief rally puts indexes at new highs

    March 5, 2014, 7:41 AM

    S&P 500 above Friday’s record high. Will uptrend continue despite overbought?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Still up but Weaker

    March 4, 2014, 11:44 AM

    February 28, 2014, 8:17 AM

    S&P 500 close to its all-time high again. Will uptrend continue?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Dollar Rallies, Gold Declines

    February 27, 2014, 2:17 PM

    Yesterday was a session unlike the previous ones. The entire precious metals sector declined, even gold, and at the same time the USD Index moved visibly higher. Has the situation become much more bearish based on the above? Or perhaps the correction is over and what we saw was the final stop before the real rally? You'll find our thoughts on this topic in today's Gold & Silver Trading Alert.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Moves Higher

    February 27, 2014, 7:30 AM

  • Forex Trading Alert: U.S. Dollar Gains

    February 26, 2014, 12:00 PM

What impact did this largest increase in five-and-a-half years has 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: Mt. Gox Gone

    February 25, 2014, 11:31 AM

    There it is. Mt. Gox has disappeared. Quite literally when it comes to the exchanges website – all it features currently is an empty space. It seems to be the common understanding of the Bitcoin community that the exchanges accounts are similarly empty. What kind of waves might this send throughout Bitcoin markets? Read our alert to know our opinion.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Junior's Outperformance

    February 24, 2014, 2:23 PM

    We've seen a rather significant rally in the junior mining stocks in recent weeks and it has been accompanied by huge volume. This sounds like a bullish piece of information but when we compare juniors' performance with that of other stocks and measure the dynamics, it turns out that we've seen similar action in the past shortly before local tops and declines. Is this time any different?

    February 21, 2014, 9:37 AM

    February 20, 2014, 2:26 PM

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.
