  • 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

    Yesterday, the volume exploded on BitStamp and BTC-e after our essay was published. The price was pushed even further up and the day ended with Bitcoin significantly higher. How much has changed in terms of the short-term outlook? Read on to get to know our opinion.

  • Forex Trading Alert: U.S. Dollar Erases Losses

    March 3, 2014, 3:19 PM

    Earlier today, the U.S. dollar moved higher after positive economic data. The Commerce Department reported that personal spending rose 0.4% (above expectations for an increase of 0.1%) and personal income rose 0.3% (also above expectations for a 0.2% increase. Additionally, the core PCE price index rose 0.1% in line with expectations. 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: Indexes gain as market sentiment improves

    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

    On Wednesday, crude oil gained 0.75% after the EIA data showed that crude inventories rose less than expected and better-than expected economic data. In this way, light crude rebounded and closed the day above $102 per barrel.

    February 26, 2014, 12:00 PM

Earlier today, the Commerce Department showed that new home sales rose 9.6% to 468,000 units in January, while analysts had expected a 1% drop to 400,000. 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?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Stocks fluctuate near their recent highs

    February 24, 2014, 9:00 AM

    S&P 500 still close to its January all-time high. No clear short-term direction as investors take some profits following recent advance.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Declines Slightly

    February 21, 2014, 9:37 AM

    On Thursday, crude oil moved lower as the U.S. dollar straighten after solid U.S. economic data and stocks of distillates fell less-than-expected. Despite this small drop, light crude still remains near a 4-month high, slightly below $103 per barrel.

    February 20, 2014, 2:26 PM

    Mt. Gox released the much-anticipated announcement today, saying that… It didn’t have that much to say at all. Read our alert to find out what impact this might have had on the Bitcoin market.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Silver's Upswing and Euro's Resistance

    February 19, 2014, 10:00 AM

    Not much happened in gold and mining stocks this week, but silver moved higher. We sometimes saw this type of divergence right at the local tops, but it was not an extremely reliable sign. In today's Gold & Silver Trading Alert we take a closer look at what actually happened and analyze it along with the situation in the USD and Euro Indices. In short, not everything is as bullish as it appears at the first sight.

    February 18, 2014, 1:00 PM

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

    February 17, 2014, 3:01 PM

    The U.S. currency was little changed near recent lows against major currencies as U.S. markets are shut for the President’s Day holiday and trade volumes remain thin. Nevertheless, it’s worth noting that the greenback declined to a four-year low against the British pound earlier today. What is the current outlook for major currency pairs? We invite you to read our today's Forex Trading Alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bloodbath on Mt. Gox

    February 14, 2014, 11:34 AM

    Panic. This one word sticks in the back of everybody’s mind when assessing what’s been going on in the Bitcoin market for the past couple of days. It might be hard to get one’s head around the fact that the currency was at $900 on Feb. 5, only to almost reach $300 today. The sell-off continues, today coinciding with news of another hacker attack. Is this enough to open short positions? Read this alert to learn our opinion.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil Hits Fresh Monthly High

    February 13, 2014, 12:37 PM

    On Wednesday, crude oil rose on better-than expected economic data from China and climbed to its highest level since late October. Despite an increase to a fresh monthly high, light crude reversed after the EIA data showed that crude inventories rose more than expected. In this way, crude oil lost 0.11%, but closed the day above $100 per barrel.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Exchanges under Attack

    February 12, 2014, 11:00 AM

    The news of the day is probably the denial of service attack carried out on major Bitcoin exchanges: Bitstamp and BTC-e. They have both announced they would experience the same kind of problems that earlier hit Mt. Gox.

    On Mt. Gox, Bitcoin was relatively stable yesterday, losing 0.6% at the end of the day. Overall, the picture yesterday was of a move declining in strength. Does the action today support any kind of reversal? Read our alert to get to know our take on that.

    February 11, 2014, 12:25 PM

    The U.S. dollar remains mixed against major currencies after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen signaled that recent soft economic data haven't swayed the central bank from a strategy of trimming its monthly bond purchases by $10 billion at each of its policy meetings this year.

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.
