  • Oil Trading Alert: Gift For Oil Bears From IEA

    October 15, 2014, 12:41 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil lost 3.18% after the International Energy Agency cut its forecasts for oil-demand growth this year and next. As a result, light crude dropped below the support zone and slipped to the next long-term support line. How low is too low?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is It Time to Take Profits off the Table?

    October 14, 2014, 10:58 AM

    We saw an important move yesterday, when Bitcoin moved above $400. The move happened together with an explosion in volume, which made the move all the more important. Today, the direction has been upheld. But Bitcoin has gone up far and fast lately. Is it time to take profits off the table?

    October 13, 2014, 6:52 AM

    S&P 500 index got closer to the level of 1,900. Is holding short position still justified? 

  • Gold and Federal Funds Rate

    October 13, 2014, 6:05 AM

    Many investors believe that the federal funds rate is adversely related to the gold price. Interest rate cuts are perceived as a sign of cheap money policy – a bullish signal in the gold market. Similarly, the rise of the federal funds rate is considered as detrimental for gold prices. However, it seems that real interest rates are more important than nominal ones. Are changes in the federal funds rate a good predictor of gold prices, then?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bumpy Ride for Bitcoin Traders

    October 10, 2014, 11:56 AM

    We saw an explosion in volume yesterday. More than Bitcoin went up in the direction of $400, reversing later on. The change in short-term trend is now very well visible, but the recent turn (yesterday) was down. What does this mean for Bitcoin investors?

  • Forex Trading Alert: Where Will EUR/USD Head Next?

    October 9, 2014, 12:10 PM

    Earlier today, the U.S. Department of Labor reported that the initial jobless claims in the week ending October 4 decreased by 1,000, beating analysts’ expectations for a 6,000 increase. In response, the U.S. dollar moved higher and EUR/USD erased some gains. Did this move change the very short-term picture?

  • Stock Trading Alert: Stocks Retraced Last Week’s Move Up As Investors’ Sentiment Worsened

    October 8, 2014, 6:57 AM

    S&P 500 index is below the level of 1,950 again as investors await corporate earnings releases, economic data announcements. Will downtrend continue?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Huge Reversal in USD and Gold – Finally!

    October 7, 2014, 2:57 PM

    The precious metals market finally rallied yesterday. Gold moved lower in the first hours of the session, getting very close to the Dec. 2013 low, but it rallied before the session was over, finally closing over $16 higher. Is the final bottom in?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Quite a Lot Happened Last Week – Did as Much Changed?

    October 6, 2014, 12:39 PM

    In short, the answer to the title question is that actually not much has changed – at least not since our last Oil Trading Alert was posted. There was a huge reversal on Thursday, and its implications remain in place also today, even though the crude oil price moved a bit lower on Friday (in fact, at the moment of writing these words, crude oil is back above the $90 level). The one thing that changed, though, are the implications coming from the analysis of weekly volume. You will find more details in today's Oil Trading Alert.

  • Real Interest Rates and Recent Decline in the Price of Gold

    October 6, 2014, 10:49 AM

    Gold performed relatively weak last month, confirming the last Market Overview’s thesis that the role of geopolitical concerns on the gold price is often overstated. Real interest rates seem to have much stronger impact on the gold market. Many analysts consider them even as the prime driver of gold price. Are they right?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Volume Hints at Action to Come

    October 6, 2014, 5:29 AM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin went down, erasing most of Wednesday’s gains. The volume picked up late in the day but, overall, it still didn’t match what we had seen the day before. While there was depreciation it wasn’t particularly strong and Bitcoin ended the day around $375. What does this mean for Bitcoin traders?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil - Seeds Of Change Growing

    October 3, 2014, 7:13 AM

    Yesterday's price action in crude oil was something that showed once again that "everyone has brain power to make money in stocks, but few have the stomach." Sessions like these (or trading before such sessions) is when having a pro on your side can make all the difference between staying the course and selling close to the bottom. The outlook for the crude oil market has been bullish for some time and yesterday's session didn't change that. In fact, the outlook is now even more bullish and the long positions seem justified from the risk/reward point of view. Let's see why.

  • Stock Trading Alert: Indexes Extended Their Move Down, The Worst May Not Be Over

    October 2, 2014, 9:02 AM

    S&P 500 index broke below its recent consolidation, as investors awaited economic data releases. Is this just a profit-taking or a new downward trend?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Crude Oil – Keep Focused

    October 1, 2014, 1:58 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil lost 3.18% as the combination of disappointing data from U.S. and euro zone weighed on the price. Additionally, report that OPEC production increased higher than expected watered down the commodity as well. In this environment, light crude reversed and declined sharply, erasing almost all recent rally. Is the situation as bearish as it looks at the first sight?

  • Forex Trading Alert: EUR/USD - How Low Is Too Low?

    September 30, 2014, 3:30 PM

    Earlier today, data showed that consumer price inflation in the euro zone fell to 0.3% in September from 0.4% in the previous month. Thanks to these disappointing numbers, the euro dropped to a two-year low against the U.S. dollar after and the EUR/USD slipped to the next support level. Will we finally see a rebound from here?

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?
