  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Is the Decline Over or Just Starting?

    September 18, 2014, 10:11 AM

    The central bank left interest rates unchanged and continued to cut the quantitative easing program, by another $10 billion a month, as was expected (all in all, nothing really surprising happened). In response, gold and mining stocks plunged and silver declined a little. Taking profits off the table and closing the very short-term long positions turned out to be a good idea as the sector declined visibly in the final part of the session. With the breakdown below the May lows being confirmed, will we see further weakness?

  • Gold , Crude Oil and U.S Dollar - The Link Intensifies

    September 10, 2014, 1:31 PM

    Yesterday, the price of light crude bounced off an eight-month low and climbed to almost $94 per barrel, supported by expectations that the EIA weekly report will show another drop in crude oil supplies. Despite this increase, a stronger U.S. dollar limited the rally and light crude reversed. As it turned out, today’s government data disappointed market participants and the commodity hit a fresh multi-month low. What’s next? Is it possible that the gold-to-oil ratio will give us some interesting clues? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Miners Break Down as U.S. Dollar Soars

    September 5, 2014, 12:47 PM

    Even though gold didn’t react in a big way to Mario Draghi’s comments, a lot happened in the precious metals market yesterday. We finally saw a breakdown in mining stocks and we saw an extreme daily rally in the USD Index. As you know, the USD Index very often triggers significant moves in gold.
