  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil - One Swallow Doesn't Make a Summer

    May 5, 2014, 11:30 AM

    On Friday, crude oil gained 0.72% as stronger-than-expected U.S. employment data and ongoing concerns over tensions between Russia and Ukraine weighted on the price. In this way, light crude rebounded and hit an intraday high of $100.14. Did this rally change anything in the overall outlook?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Sentiment Worsens But No Confirmation of Trend Reversal Yet

    May 5, 2014, 8:45 AM

    S&P 500 continues to fluctuate slightly below early April all-time high as broad market struggles with the resistance at 1,900. Will uptrend resume?

  • Forex Trading Alert: Plunging Euro and Rising Dollar or Vice Versa?

    May 2, 2014, 1:39 PM

    Earlier today, the U.S. dollar moved higher against the common currency after strong U.S. employment data. The Labor Department showed that the U.S. economy added 288,000 jobs in the previous month, well above expectations for a 210,000 increase. The report also showed that the U.S. unemployment rate dropped to 6.3% in April, while analysts had expected a fall to 6.6%. In reaction to these better-than-expected numbers, the euro declined sharply, approaching its important support. Will history repeat itself once again?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Moving Down but What Kind of Move Is It?

    May 2, 2014, 12:30 PM

    Bitcoin went up yesterday on BitStamp. This was another day of gains, but the action was not confirmed by volume. The overall move up from Apr. 27 until May 1 didn’t read as strongly bullish even for the short-term. Today, we've seen a move down. Is this the beginning of a new slide in Bitcoin?

  • Forex Trading Alert: USD/CHF – Strong Bearish Action

    April 30, 2014, 2:22 PM

    Earlier today, the U.S. currency moved lower after data showed that U.S. gross domestic product rose at an annual rate of 0.1% in the first quarter, well below expectations for a 1.2% growth. In reaction to this, the greenback declined sharply against the Swiss franc and reached the long-term support line once again. Will it withstand the selling pressure in the following days?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Breakout Failed - Will the Breakdown Last?

    April 30, 2014, 9:07 AM

    On Tuesday, crude oil came back above $102 on ongoing concerns that tensions between Russia and the West could lead to stronger sanctions and disturb exports from Russia. However, the commodity erased earlier gains as disappointing data and prospects for increased exports from Libya weighted on the price. Thanks to these circumstances, light crude closed the day below important medium-term line once again. Will the consequences of this event be bearish enough to push the price below the key level of $100?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is This the Beginning of a Move up?

    April 29, 2014, 12:35 PM

    Bitcoin gained yesterday and the volume was almost twice as high as on the day before. This was a move up on increased volume – a development bullish on its own, but not necessarily in the context of the recent decline. Today, however, we've seen more appreciation. Has a move up just started?

  • Forex Trading Alert: EUR/USD – Will Another Fakeout Trigger a Sizable Move?

    April 29, 2014, 12:29 PM

    Earlier today, the euro declined sharply from almost two-week high against the U.S. dollar after preliminary data showed that German consumer prices fell 0.2% this month, and increased 1.3% on a year-over-year basis (while analysts had expected a monthly decline of 0.1% and an annual increase of 1.4%). Did this weakness change anything in the short-term outlook?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Finally Some Bullish Signs

    April 29, 2014, 7:14 AM

    Stocks extend their fluctuations, as broad market remains near all-time high. Investors await economic data, earnings releases. Is it time to be more aggressive?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Other Bearish Arguments and Their Implications for Crude Oil

    April 28, 2014, 2:53 PM

    On Friday, the price of light crude declined from $102 as concerns over domestic supplies encouraged oil investors to sell the commodity for profits. Will the psychological barrier of $100 withstand the selling pressure in the following days?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Miners Break Out but Gold Fails to Follow so Far

    April 28, 2014, 1:49 PM

    The situation in the precious metals sector remains tense – miners have broken above the declining resistance line, while gold hasn’t. However, taking Friday’s intraday move in the USD into account, we can say more about the gold-USD link. In today's alert we dive into both issues and also discuss the signal coming from junior mining stocks. What kind of move in the precious metals sector are the above factors likely to generate?

  • Forex Trading Alert: GBP/USD - Ready for New High?

    April 25, 2014, 1:14 PM

    Earlier today, the British pound moved higher against the U.S. dollar after data showed that U.K. retail sales rose 0.1% in March, beating expectations for a 0.4% drop. Despite these encouraging numbers, GBP/USD is still trading between the medium-term support and the 2014 high. Are there any technical factors that could drive the exchange rate higher or lower in the near future?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is It Soon Enough to Take Your Profits off the Table?

    April 25, 2014, 1:05 PM

    Bitcoin went up yesterday on increased volume. Based on yesterday’s developments alone, the situation could have looked as though the short-term outlook had improved. It hadn’t meaningfully improved, however, if one took into account the overall situation. So, Bitcoin declined heavily today. The burning question now is: has it declined enough to close short positions? We provide you with our opinion on that.

  • Stock Trading Alert: The Situation on the Broad Market Remains Tense as Companies Release Quarterly Earnings

    April 24, 2014, 7:28 AM

    S&P 500 fluctuates slightly below early April all-time high - investors seem to be preparing for a bigger move. Tech stocks are set to move sharply higher as investors react to corporate earnings announcements, however, whether or not the broad market will follow is a different question.

  • Forex Trading Alert: Weak U.S. Housing Data Supports Euro

    April 23, 2014, 3:17 PM

    Earlier today, the common currency moved higher against the U.S. dollar after data showed that the euro zone manufacturing PMI rose to 53.3 in April from 53.0 in the previous month (while analysts had expected an unchanged reading). Later in the day, the Commerce Department showed that sales on new homes dropped 14.5%, which supported the euro as well. Whether these positive numbers are in line with the technical picture of EUR/USD?

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview, we will discuss the gold lending and swap market – a misunderstood and overlooked part of the gold market. Are you confused by the talk of gold backwardation, the gold lease rates (GLR) or the gold forward offered rates (GOFO)? This edition of the Market Overview will show you how these gold market-related interest rates and the price of gold interfere with each other. We will also discuss how the gold leasing is conducted, how it is linked to the gold prices, and why gold is leased at all. Last but not least, we will analyze whether the leasing of gold by central banks affects the price of gold, what negative gold forward rates mean, and how to interpret the occurrence of backwardation in gold.
