  • 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?

  • Oil Trading Alert: How Far Down Could Crude Oil Go?

    April 23, 2014, 1:13 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil lost 1.78% as concerns over another build in U.S. crude oil inventories overshadowed ongoing fears over tensions between Russia and Ukraine. Because of these circumstances, light crude declined sharply and invalidated the breakout above the medium-term resistance line. Will this strong bearish signal trigger further deterioration in the coming days? Which important support could stop sellers?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Miners Outperform Once Again

    April 23, 2014, 11:16 AM

    Yesterday’s price action in the precious metals market might seem perplexing to some investors and there’s good reason for it. Gold declined, but silver didn’t, and mining stocks actually managed to rally more than 1%. In today's alert we examine what actually happened and what's likely to happen next in this "strange" environment.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Lack of Action but Not of Signals

    April 22, 2014, 2:25 PM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin edged lower on relatively low volume. The currency ended the day below $500. There was no significant action. Today, we’ve seen more of the same. Is there anything different this time?

  • Gold & Silver Trading Alert: Action in Platinum

    April 22, 2014, 2:19 PM

    The precious metals sector moved lower at the beginning of the week which coincided with a small move higher in the USD Index. There were no meaningful breakdowns / breakouts, though – with the exception of the platinum market. Let's see how much the latter changed, and why we haven't seen more of the same action in the rest of the sector.

  • Oil Trading Alert: Will News from Ukraine Push Crude Oil Above $105?

    April 18, 2014, 1:32 PM

    On Thursday, crude oil gained 0.76% as the escalating conflict in Ukraine weighted on the price. Thanks to this news, light crude bounced off an important support/resistance line. Will it increase further with the tensions in the background? Does yesterday growth change the outlook for the commodity?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Important Implications of Going Down

    April 18, 2014, 1:29 PM

    Bitcoin moved lower yesterday but the bearish short-term outlook was not confirmed by an increase in volume – the trading yesterday was significant but weaker than on the day before. Has anything changed today as Bitcoin is now below $500 on both BitStamp and BTC-e?

  • Forex Trading Alert: GBP/USD – Breakout or Fakeout?

    April 17, 2014, 4:13 PM

    Earlier today, the British pound extended gains and hit a 4-1/2 year high against the greenback as upbeat U.K. employment data released on Wednesday still weighted on the pair. Thanks to these circumstances, GBP/USD broke above the important resistance zone. Despite this bullish sign, the exchange rate reversed. Will the buyers manage to close the day above the previous 2014 high?

  • Oil Trading Alert: Oil Bulls Win for Now, but Will This Last?

    April 16, 2014, 2:44 PM

    On Tuesday, crude oil gained 0.22% as stronger-than-expected U.S. economic data weighted on the price. Thanks to these solid numbers, the commodity closed the day above the medium-term resistance line, but how reliable this breakout is?

May Market Overview

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.
