    Vicious Trio Keeps ...

    The craziness of it. Bitcoin has been storming up and down, from $20,000 to $6,000 and back to $11,000 again. This volatility makes most traders’ stomachs churn, their faces go pale and their palms start to sweat. As if this action weren’t enough, an unknown trader has put their money where their mouth is – all $400 million of it. One can’t help but wonder what in the market justifies such an extreme move.

    Since Friday, the USD Index extends increases and makes up for lost points.

  • Stocks Fail to Hold Gains, But Still No Correction

    February 22, 2018, 7:30 AM
    Stocks Fail to ...

    The first part of yesterday's trading session was controlled by the bulls and the S&P 500 index was gaining ahead of the FOMC Minutes release at 2:00 p.m. Then the uptrend reversed and stocks fell below Tuesday's closing prices. Investors continued taking short-term profits off the table after week-long move up from previous Friday's lows. The market trades around 6% below its late January all-time high. Stocks are expected to open slightly higher today, but will they extend their yesterday's late session sell-off or bounce and continue trading within three-day-long consolidation?

  • Miners’ Rally? What Rally? Watch Out for More Fake Moves!

    February 21, 2018, 8:20 AM
    Miners’ Rally? What ...

    Remember how mining stocks soared on Valentine’s Day and how we wrote that a rally is not necessarily bullish? Guess what – this rally has been more than erased. Miners not only closed below the February 14th opening price, but also below the February 13th and 12th closing prices. Mining stocks big rally turned out to be nothing more than just a regular 50% retracement during a decline – something that we saw many times in the past and that we described as likely. But, since the rally was rather inconsequential, then perhaps the decline is inconsequential as well?

    The End Is ...

    The doomsayers have been calling for recession for years. Mainstream economists laughed at them, painting a rosy picture. However, the recent plunge in the stock market strengthened the pessimists’ hand. They interpret the dive as a signal of a coming recession. Is the end of the stock market boom really near?

  • Bitcoin as Poison

    February 16, 2018, 10:28 AM
    Bitcoin as Poison

    The views on Bitcoin among various investors are quite polarized. The whole spectrum includes both people directly owning the cryptocurrency and those who seem to hate it. We have read analyses suggesting that a surprising percentage of hedge fund managers own digital coins. At the same time, Warren Buffett's investment chief, Charlie Munger, called Bitcoin “noxious poison.” Do such words mean that Bitcoin is doomed?

    Stocks Extend Rally ...

    S&P 500 index gained 1.3% on Wednesday, following lower opening of the trading session. The market has extended its rally from Friday's low. But will it continue higher today? We can see some short-term overbought conditions. Was this two-week-long sell-off the beginning of a new medium-term downtrend or just downward correction before another leg up? It's hard to say, but this move down set the negative tone for weeks or months to come.

    Things Only a ...

    We live in very specific times. Getting a "like" on a post or picture becomes a necessary daily activity and means of self-validation. Not "liking" something that others have posted or that is massively "liked" may be frowned upon or even viewed as being disrespectful. Plus, it seems that no matter what you do, everyone gets offended very easily. When did honesty, independence and common-sense stop being virtues? In today's analysis, we elaborate on our often controversial approach and we discuss the final bottom in the gold prices.

    Key Change That ...

    Last week, everyone focused on the stock market sell-off. Reasonably enough, given the pace of the declines. But the analysts failed to pay enough attention to the very important shift. That change may be more important than Trump’s victory in the presidential election. Will the critical switch make gold shine – or dull?

    On Monday, oil bulls extended gains after Friday's invalidation of the breakout, which together with the buy signal generated by the Stochastic Oscillator suggest further improvement.

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview, we will examine what the Great Unwind implies for the U.S. dollar and gold. The tightening of monetary policy and higher interest rates could be negative for gold, but more hawkish BoJ and ECB would mean narrower divergence in monetary policies between the Fed and other major central banks.
We will answer the question of why the American currency has been falling like a stone recently, despite the Fed’s tightening cycle. We will also explore the historical bull and bear cycles in both gold and the U.S. dollar, as trend in this currency is likely to be the vital driver in the gold market in 2018.
