  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Dollar’s Major Breakout and Gold's Simultaneous Rally

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Breakout or a Single-Event-Driven Upswing?

    January 15, 2015, 11:51 AM

    We saw another daily reversal in gold yesterday, during which gold touched its declining medium-term resistance line. Gold broke above this level early today, so we have a breakout. With gold trading above this important line it’s critical to take into account the reason behind it and to remember that waiting for a confirmation of a given move proved to be profitable many times in the past.

  • Forex Trading Alert: Swiss Franc Shoots Up!

    January 15, 2015, 11:47 AM

    Earlier today, Switzerland's central bank decided to scrap its policy of capping the Swiss franc at 1.20 to the euro, which boosted the Swiss franc against other currencies. As a result, EUR/CHF dropped under a very important support level, which triggered a sharp decline that approached the exchange rate to the levels that we saw in 2011. How much more room to decline does the pair have?

    January 15, 2015, 11:13 AM

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil – Another Fresh Low

    January 14, 2015, 1:54 PM

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Pause in the Decline Might Be Close

    January 14, 2015, 11:40 AM

    Yesterday ended in stark depreciation with Bitcoin losing over 15% compared with the previous close. The volume exploded to over to a level last seen around the local bottom in the early days of October 2014. But the move didn’t really look like a bottom, rather a beginning of a further slide. All this suggests that there might be further depreciation. But there are also other indications. Read about them in this alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Beginning of an Extremely Important Decline

    January 13, 2015, 12:28 PM

    We've seen a strong and volatile move down. Bitcoin has taken a significant dive, losing some 13% and the volume has ballooned to the highest level since the Jan. 4 plunge. There are important implications for our short-term outlook.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Dark Clouds Over Crude Oil

    January 12, 2015, 1:55 PM

    On Friday, crude oil lost 1.45% as worries over a glut in global supplies continued to weigh on the price. In these circumstances, light crude approached the recent low, finishing the day slightly above $48. Will April’s 2009 lows pause oil bears for longer?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Stocks Again Lower As Investors Continue To Hesitate

    January 12, 2015, 1:52 PM

  • Gold and Commodity Cycles

    January 12, 2015, 11:29 AM

    Most of the economists analyze the recent drop in the oil price separately from the other commodities. We take a broader view and suggest that we are witnessing the reversal of the 2000s commodity boom due to strong U.S. dollar and the expected rise of interest rates. Does it imply the bear in the gold market?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin in Tense Territory

    January 9, 2015, 9:45 AM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin ended lower than it had opened, erasing Wednesday’s gains but the overall volume was lower than on Wednesday. It was a day of depreciation but not a decisive fall.

    January 8, 2015, 9:28 AM

Gold Market Overview

A lot has been going on in Europe in the first two months of 2015. Swiss National Bank removed the peg of 1.20 francs per euro, European Central Bank announced the QE program, radical left-wing Syriza won the elections in Greece, shortly thereafter Sweden cut its key interest rate, S&P downgraded Russia’s credit rating to junk status, and the conflict in Ukraine continued.
These are the key events that are likely to drive the price of gold in the following months - be sure to be aware of their impact.
