  • Does Gold Always Respond to Real Interest Rates?

    October 27, 2014, 3:07 PM

    Generally, the real interest rates are negatively correlated with the gold price, i.e. the rising interest rates adversely impact the price of the yellow metal. According to a rule of thumb, whenever the dollar’s real short-term interest rate is below 2%, gold rallies, and whenever the real short-term rate is above 2%, the price of gold falls. However, there are many objections to the use of such a simple model, and generally to the adverse relationship between gold and real interest rates.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil - Sinking Or Rebounding?

    October 27, 2014, 12:38 PM

    On Friday, crude oil lost 0.68% as concerns over a global oversupply continued to weigh. Additionally, soft U.S. housing data pushed the commodity below $82 per barrel. Will we see another test of the strength of the psychologically important level of $80?

  • Forex Trading Alert: USD/JPY – Currency Bulls In Charge

    October 23, 2014, 2:07 PM

    Earlier today, the Department of Labor showed that the four-week average of the initial jobless claims fell to the lowest level since May 2000. In response, the U.S. dollar moved higher and climbed to a two week high against the weaker yen. How did this move change the very short-term picture?

    October 22, 2014, 12:24 PM

    Although crude oil started yesterday’s session almost $1 below Monday’s closing price, the commodity rebounded in the following hours supported by solid Chinese and U.S. data. Did this increase change the very short-term picture?

  • Forex Trading Alert: USD/CAD - At Crossroads

    October 21, 2014, 3:08 PM

    Earlier today, the National Association of Realtors showed that sales of previously owned homes climbed 2.4% from a month earlier to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.17 million in September. These solid numbers supported the greenback and pushed the USD/CAD pair to the important short-term support. Will it be strong enough to push the exchange rate higher?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: How Will We Know That the Bottom Is In?

    October 21, 2014, 12:23 PM

    Yesterday, gold closed higher than it had done in the previous several weeks, which seems like a very bullish development for the entire precious metals market until one realizes that miners are still close to their most recent lows.

    Apart from commenting on the current situation in the precious metals market, in today's alert we discuss the very important issue of determining if the final bottom is indeed in.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Goes up and down

    October 21, 2014, 11:05 AM

    We saw a move down yesterday. The volume was relatively significant but nowhere near what we had seen during the recent strong declines. What does this combination mean for Bitcoin traders?

  • Gold and Real Interest Rate

    October 20, 2014, 12:52 PM

    Does gold respond to the inflation or rather to the real interest rate? Paul Krugman said once that the reason behind the high real price of gold between 2001 and 2011 was low real interest rates, not the expected inflation. Is he right and are real interest rates really the main driver of the yellow metal price? How do they affect the gold market?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Is Current Rise in Crude Oil Reliable?

    October 20, 2014, 12:36 PM

    On Friday, crude oil climbed above $84 supported by upbeat U.S. data. Despite this increase, light crude gave up gains and finally lost 0.19% as concerns over bigger-than-expected increase in crude oil inventories continued to weight. Will we see a rebound in this environment?

    October 17, 2014, 11:15 AM

    Bitcoin stayed below $400 yesterday and, in fact, today we’ve seen a move down. There has been an important change compared with the previous couple of days, though. Namely, the volume is visibly lower. At the moment of writing, not even 25% of yesterday’s volume has been reached. What kind of implications does this have for traders?

  • Forex Trading Alert: How High Could USD/CAD Go?

    October 16, 2014, 1:57 PM

    Although the U.S. dollar moved lower against most of major currency pairs after disappointing economic data yesterday, we didn’t notice such price action in the case of the USD/CAD. Therefore, we decided to take a closer look at USD/CAD in today’s Forex Trading Alert. Will yesterday’s increase trigger further rally?

Oct Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview we will discuss which tools affecting inflation and real activity do the central banks have left. We will examine thoroughly the most debated innovative instruments, such as helicopter money, and consider how these ‘non-standard unconventional’ tools affect the economy and the gold market. We will also analyze recent propositions to change current monetary policy framework by increasing the inflation target or by replacing it by price level or nominal GDP targeting. Last but not least, we will address briefly the policy of targeting the long-term interest rates, introduced last month by the Bank of Japan. How would these proposals, if implemented in the U.S., influence the precious metals market?
