Although crude oil moved lower after the market’s open weakened by concerns over the situation in Ukraine and Greece, the commodity rebounded as weaker U.S. dollar supported the price. As a result, light crude gained 1.08% and climbed above an important resistance, but is it as bullish as it seems at the first sight?

We didn’t see much action yesterday. The price itself didn’t move much, especially in comparison with what we had seen earlier, and the volume was relatively weak. This was the calm after the “storm” but are there any hints at the direction in which Bitcoin is headed?

The Russia’s current problems resemble those from 1998. The next logical step during the currency crisis experienced by the developing country with large foreign-currency debt is banking crisis due to balance sheet problems. Why do we think that Russia is entering into a full-blown financial crisis with banks and companies’ defaults?

The markets were surprised yesterday by the decision of the Swedish central bank, which cut its repo rate to -0.10 percent and introduced QE. In that way, the Riksbank joined the club of central banks introducing negative interest rates (others are the Danish central bank, SNB and the ECB). What does it mean and what are the implications for the gold market?

Earlier today, the U.S. Commerce Department showed that retail sales dropped by 0.8% in Jan (missing expectations for a decline of 0.5%), while core retail sales (without automobile sales) decreased by 0.9% in December, disappointing forecasts for a 0.4% drop). On top of that, the U.S. Department of Labor reported that the number of initial jobless claims in the week ending February 7 increased by 25,000 missing analysts’ expectations for a 6,000 increase. In response to these disappointing numbers, the U.S. dollar moved lower against its Canadian counterpart, which resulted in a breakdown under the long-term support/resistance line. Will we see a sizable downward move?
