  • USD’s Likely Bottom and Its Implications for Precious Metals

    May 8, 2017, 10:01 AM
    USD’s Likely Bottom ...

    The medium-term trends in gold are reflected by the medium-term trends in the USD Index and that’s been the case for many years. Naturally, there are deviations from this rule, but generally, it has to be the case simply because gold is priced in the US dollar. Consequently, it is very important for precious metals investors and traders to monitor the USD Index as signs of bottoms likely indicate lower prices for PMs in the following weeks. You’ll find details in today’s Gold-&-Silver-Trading-Alert-based free article.

    In the first quarter of 2017 gold gained about 9 percent. In April, the yellow metal continued its rally partially due to the uncertainty about French elections. Geopolitical risks clearly won with a hawkish Fed in a tug of war in the gold market. Does it mean more bullish outlook for the gold market? We invite you to read our today’s article about the most important geopolitical developments – such as presidential elections in France and the formal triggering of Brexit – and find out what are their possible implications for the gold market.

  • Sign of Outperformance in Metals

    May 4, 2017, 9:53 AM
    Sign of Outperformance ...

    In yesterday’s alert we wrote that the reversal in the precious metals market should once again not be taken at its face value and even if that one should not overreact based on it as the size of the potential rally was limited. Well, it turned out that “limited rally” was an euphemism for a decline. Gold, silver and mining stocks declined once again despite the previous day’s reversal and gold stocks confirmed the breakdown below the key support line. The implications are strongly bearish. However, there’s something ever more bearish and much more profound.
