We all heard about various “bailouts” or the financial wizardry that the American government used after the 2008 crisis. In a two pronged play the government spent public money while at the same time it introduced the “quantitative easing” program, which resulted in huge money printing and increases to the “narrowly defined money supply.” As mentioned in the last reports, even though it was inflationary it was not very, very inflationary-- at least not yet.
Lots and lots of new money was created, huge mountains of the stuff. The biggest question is what happened to this money and how did this affect the stocks and bonds? So besides the quantitative aspect there is also the qualitative aspect – what has happened to the money? Where did it go? How would the Fed’s activity to step back affect the markets? Finally - how is gold likely to react to the above in the long run?
The above is a small excerpt from our latest Market Overview report. The full version includes much more in-depth analysis of this and other fundamental factors that are likely to affect the gold market in the near future. You can.

The first week of a new month and a new quarter was quite good for oil bulls.

At the same time oil stocks closed lower for a first time in five weeks. Does it mean that they became weaker in relation to crude oil? How does the relationship between light crude and the oil stocks look like? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

The recent week was tough for the U.S. currency. Investors avoided the dollar as uncertainty over the U.S. government shutdown and the upcoming debate on the debt ceiling weighed on sentiment. These circumstances resulted in declines and the dollar dropped to a new eight-month low in the previous week. What’s interesting, at the same time we didn’t notice a sharp increase in gold. Does it mean that the yellow metal stopped responding to the U.S. dollar price moves? What’s next? Can gold climb higher in the near term once again?

One of the main events of recent days was the first U.S. government shutdown in 17 years. In the previous week, light crude dropped to a new September’s low at $101.05 and gold declined below $1,300 an ounce. Despite this declines, both commodities rebounded sharply in the middle of the previous week supported by a weaker U.S. dollar. Additionally, we saw similar price action in both cases in the following days. Will crude oil lead gold higher once again? What could happen if the recent positive divergences between both commodities remain in place? If you want to know our take on these questions, we invite you to read our today's essay.

After three quarters of declines prompted by fears over U.S. stimulus tapering, gold posted a near 8% gain for the September quarter. Yesterday, the yellow metal gained on safe-haven bids surrounding the U.S. government shutdown and reached $1,347. Will gold break out of its $1,300 to $1,350 range?

Gold has declined since we posted our previous essay with the bearish medium-term outlook, so the medium-term downtrend definitely remains in place. In today’s free commentary we will focus on other parts of the precious metals sector: silver and palladium.
