    Uptrend Continues, but..

    Friday's trading session was pretty much uneventful, as investors awaited the coming quarterly earnings releases season. The S&P 500 index continued to trade along the level of 2,800 and it's closer to breaking higher towards the late January record high. There are still two possible medium-term scenarios, but bulls are happier than a week ago.

  • Is it the Greenback Time?

    July 13, 2018, 8:02 AM
    Is it the ...

    Although last week’s decline took the USD Index under the late June’s lows, currency bulls didn’t break down with this deterioration and responded to their rivals fairly in previous days. Thanks to their determination, the greenback has wiped out most of the recent decline, which in combination with several other positive factors about which we wrote in today's Forex Trading Alert suggests that ...

  • Italian Crisis and Gold

    July 13, 2018, 6:16 AM
    Italian Crisis and ...

    Greece? Forget it – Italy is the real sick man of Europe! We invite you to read our today’s article about the Italian crisis and its likely effects on the gold market. Is the recent turmoil on the Apennine Peninsula a one-off event? Will the euro survive? Let’s read our article and find out!

  • A Picture Less Than Pretty

    July 13, 2018, 4:46 AM
    A Picture Less ...

    The move up seemed to be continuing and the first impression was that we were seeing a first period of appreciation in some time. But the operative word here is “seemed.” If we take a closer look at what the current environment really is, the picture is far less pretty.

  • Stocks Trying to Break Higher Again, Will They?

    July 12, 2018, 7:32 AM
    Stocks Trying to ...

    The S&P 500 index retraced some of its recent advance yesterday, as investors reacted to overnight trade tariffs announcement. Is this a new downtrend? Or just a downward correction before another leg higher? There are still two possible medium-term scenarios.

  • Is Rise in Unemployment Good?

    Is Rise in ...

    The U.S. unemployment rate rose in June. But this is good for the economy. What? Good? How is that?

  • Gold’s & Silver’s Reversals’ Reversals

    July 11, 2018, 7:44 AM
    Gold’s & Silver’s ...

    In yesterday’s analysis, we discussed how meaningful gold and silver’s pre-market decline was given a relatively small move in the USD Index. The implications were quite bearish for the PM market, especially that we had just seen a target being reached in gold stocks. And because mining stocks had just underperformed gold for the first time in weeks. Yet, before the day was over, the USD, gold and silver had all reversed and erased most of their daily moves. Does it make the outlook bullish again? Is gold still likely to reach $1,300 shortly?

  • USD/CAD - The Good, The Bad and… The Profit

    July 10, 2018, 11:09 AM
    USD/CAD - The ...

    They say that the fortune favors the bold, but “they” clearly have never tried making money while trading the forex market. “Nobody ever got broke by taking profits” seems more reasonable as far as sayings go, but the truth is that in the end it’s always the risk to reward that decides whether a given position should be held or not and deviating from it is costly sooner or later. The situations in the EUR/USD and USD/CAD pairs were just very favorable, but they are now only somewhat favorable and exercising the above key rule seems appropriate. This is a profitable execution.

    Tightening is coming, brace yourself! And we mean ‘tightening’, not just the removal of monetary accommodation. Why we think so? Let’s read our article about the recent FOMC minutes and find out!

  • The Euro, the British Pound and the Other Side of the Coin

    July 6, 2018, 10:39 AM
    The Euro, the ...

    Analyzing the medium-term charts of the euro and the British pound, we see that currency bulls have fought fiercely against their rivals in recent weeks. Despite several attempts to push both currencies lower, they successfully defended their main strongholds in both cases and defeated the fans of the greenback. What does this mean for the U.S. currency and its European competitors?

  • Crude Oil and Its Another Interesting Relationship

    July 6, 2018, 10:08 AM
    Crude Oil and ...

    Tuesday's unsuccessful attempt to break above upper borders of the rising trend channels cost oil bulls more than many buyers expected. Their weakness was quickly detected by the rivals, who took control during yesterday's session. The effects of their attack are seen not only on the crude oil charts, because they also affected the interpretation of our next interesting ratio. Is it possible that the relationship between black gold and the general stock market will give us valuable tips on the future of light crude as it has many times in the past?

  • The End of Quantitative Easing and Gold

    July 6, 2018, 7:14 AM
    The End of ...

    The end is near. The end of quantitative easing. In June, the Fed lifted the federal funds rate for the second time this year, while the ECB announced that it would end its bond purchase program by the end of 2018. Is it the key change in macroeconomic outlook that will set the world on fire? We invite you to read our today’s article about the end of quantitative easing on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean and find out what does it mean for the gold market.

    Fed Completed Its ...

    Finally! The core PCE Index hit the Fed’s 2-percent target for the first time in six years. Does this mean a revolution in American monetary policy? And what about the yellow metal?

  • Still No Clear Direction, but S&P 500 Remains Above 2,700

    Still No Clear ...

    There were some positive expectations ahead of the opening of Tuesday's trading session, but then stocks reversed their intraday advance and closed lower. The broad stock market continues to trade within a short-term consolidation. Which direction is next? There are still two possible medium-term scenarios.

  • GBP/USD – Time to Jump in with Both Feet?

    July 3, 2018, 11:19 AM
    GBP/USD – Time ...

    On Friday, the British pound showed strength against the greenback, which resulted in an invalidation of the breakdown under the long-term support line. The closure of the week above this important line emphasized the advantage of currency bulls over their rivals. What a pity that they rested on their laurels.Why? Because yesterday’s session erased most of the earlier rebound. This bucket of cold water, however, awakened the buyers who returned to the game for higher levels. What must they do to make GBP/USD grow above 1.3000?

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview, we will examine in detail the recent monetary policy decisions undertaken by the Fed and the ECB, and analyze what they mean for the gold market. Given the fears that the Fed’s tightening will cause the next crisis, we will examine this hypothesis in the context of the gold market, focusing on the emerging countries, which are especially sensitive to changes in the Fed’s stance. Italian yields have already spiked, while Argentina and Turkey face economic crises...
