  • Italian Government, U.S. Job

    June 6, 2018, 9:46 AM
    Italian Government, U.S. ...

    Italy has a new government. The 66th since World War II. Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate declined to the 18-year low. What does it all mean for the gold market?

  • Gold’s Breakout vs. Relativity

    June 6, 2018, 9:08 AM
    Gold’s Breakout vs. ...

    Gold, silver, and mining stocks moved higher once again yesterday and the former even managed to move above the declining trend channel. Breakouts are bullish and thus the outlook for gold improved significantly… Or did it? Gold’s price in terms of the euro and gold’s relative performance to silver and mining stocks make replying to the above question quite easy. Looking at the relative price moves on a day-to-date basis doesn’t provide any interesting implications, but who says that it’s the only way in which one can examine them?

  • Respite for Bitcoin Traders Might Be Deceptive

    June 5, 2018, 11:59 AM
    Respite for Bitcoin ...

    There seems to be some respite for Bitcoin traders. It might be tempting to take this breather as a sign of the tide turning. We highlight the reasons why you probably shouldn’t.

  • Sharp Dollar Appreciation and Gold

    June 5, 2018, 8:38 AM
    Sharp Dollar Appreciation ...

    The U.S. dollar has recently rallied. Is it only a temporary rebound or the Fed’s interest rate hikes are finally working? We invite you to read our today’s article about the rapid strengthening of the greenback and find out what does it mean for the gold market.

  • Unbelievable Analogy in Gold & Silver

    June 4, 2018, 7:59 AM
    Unbelievable Analogy in ...

    Gold moved lower in May and it’s also down in June, but the price action is far from being spectacular. The overall volatility is still very low and the situation in the precious metals sector is simply extremely boring. But with May now being over and with a new month, new factors are likely to come into play and the odds are that this month will be anything but boring. Especially, if we see the continuation in the analogy that practically nobody seems to realize.

  • Friday's Rally to Continue?

    June 4, 2018, 7:45 AM
    Friday's Rally to ...

    Stocks were gaining on Friday following monthly jobs data release. Investors' sentiment improved as the market broke above its recent trading range. Is this a new uptrend or just an advance within a few-week-long consolidation? Tech stocks rallied, but the S&P 500 index remained below its resistance level. There are still two possible medium-term scenarios.

  • Oil Bulls’ Wishes vs. Reality

    June 1, 2018, 9:15 AM
    Oil Bulls’ Wishes ...

    Wednesday’s rally that followed Tuesday’s reversal gave hope for a sustainable move higher. But only to those, who focus on the daily price movement only, without taking bigger picture into consideration. As we explained last Friday, there were bearish implications of the weekly candlestick pattern even before it was completed. In the following analyses we wrote the same about the monthly candlestick and since May is over, the candlestick is completed, and we can say that our previous expectations were met. What do the more long-term patterns indicate for the crude oil’s future and how much can we trust the recent rally?

  • Once Again, Gold Is Not Commodity

    June 1, 2018, 5:50 AM
    Once Again, Gold ...

    Many analysts attempt to develop a fundamental model for the price of gold by focusing on such statistics as mine production and industrial usage. They thoroughly analyze the changes in physical demand, supply, the marginal costs of mining, etc. However, this approach is fatally flawed. We invite you to read our today’s article about two approaches to valuing gold and find out why you shouldn’t treat it as a commodity.

  • Arrivederci Gold, Forte Dollaro

    May 31, 2018, 7:55 AM
    Arrivederci Gold, Forte ...

    The Italian title of today’s Gold News Monitor means “goodbye gold, dollar is strong”. Is that really true? Let’s analyze the implications of the recent Italian turmoil for the gold market.

  • Topping USD’s Implications for Gold Investors

    May 30, 2018, 12:55 PM
    Topping USD’s Implications ...

    The euro plunged, the USD Index soared and gold… just stayed put. There was no meaningful action except for the big intraday volatility that ended in a rather small decline. Can one infer anything at all from the above combination of factors? Yes, if one knows where to look.

  • Outlook Shifting in Predictable Ways for Bitcoin

    May 29, 2018, 11:10 AM
    Outlook Shifting in ...

    As Bitcoin is going down, we’re seeing more and more information on how the currency is in a precarious position or how the prospects of the currency is bleak. But what interests traders the most is if the recent developments have changed anything in the current outlook. And we provide you with our answer to this question. One our readers have known for some time now.

  • How Far Is from North Korea to Italy?

    May 29, 2018, 9:35 AM
    How Far Is ...

    Almost 5 500 miles (8 800 kilometers). That’s the distance between Pyongyang and Rome. It seems a lot, right? But not for gold, the truly global monetary asset. In recent days, the price of the yellow metal has immediately reacted to the developments around both North Korea and Italy. What has happened?

  • Crude Oil: It’s Here!

    May 25, 2018, 8:52 AM
    Crude Oil: It’s ...

    In the previous alerts we let you know how the situation in the crude oil was becoming increasingly bearish, but that it was not yet bearish enough to justify any action regarding the price. The risk was still too high to do so, and we explained that waiting for the confirmation was the preferable course of action. The confirmation has arrived.

  • Three Drivers of Gold, Second Look

    May 25, 2018, 7:11 AM
    Three Drivers of ...

    The three most important factors in the gold market are the real interest rates, the U.S. dollar, and the risk aversion. Fair enough. But we need to dig deeper to solve the gold’s puzzle. We invite you to take a second look at the bullion’s fundamental drivers to develop a more sophisticated model of the gold prices.

  • June Hike Is Coming. Will Gold Survive?

Jun Market Overview

Gold Market Overview

The price of gold dived under $1,300. Are there more declines in gold prices ahead of us?

In this edition of the Market Overview, we will answer this key question. To achieve this ambitious goal, we will carefully examine the recent macroeconomic developments, such as the rising interest rates and rapidly appreciating U.S. dollar – and their likely effects on the gold market. Given the enormous global pile of debt, which is sensitive to changes in rates and greenback’s strength, we will analyze whether, or how strongly, the debt crisis threatens us.
