  • Has Bitcoin Bought It?

    March 16, 2018, 11:32 AM
    Has Bitcoin Bought ...

    Punch-drunk from a series of crunching blows, dazed and confused, staggering for the ropes. It’s hard not to get the image of Bitcoin being pummeled by the market, getting the wind knock out of it. But is this picture true? Instead of focusing on what swirls around in the media, a cautious investor would instead reach out for what might drive their profits.

  • Crude Oil – Who Wants the Triangle?

    March 16, 2018, 10:55 AM
    Crude Oil – ...

    On Thursday crude oil wavered between small gains and losses, but finished the day only 23 cents above Wednesday closing price. Such small daily changes that we observe recently don’t look too encouraging for oil bulls or for the bears. However, to dispel boredom, we rummaged deeper in the charts and we found something that may interest both sides of the market’s battle. Curious?

  • EUR/USD – Something Old, Something New and… Something Blue

    March 15, 2018, 10:06 AM
    EUR/USD – Something ...

    Since the beginning of the month all battles between bulls and bears run in a fairly narrow area, which unfortunately doesn’t create good investment opportunities. In today's alert, we looked at the broader perspective of EUR/USD and the USD Index itself, and we already have our own types where we will likely open next positions. If you do not want to miss the levels that we think about, take a look at our today's analysis.

    Are We Going ...

    Who will win: bulls or bears? The LBMA published its annual forecast survey for precious metals prices in 2018. Gold prices range from $1,120 to $1,510. Where is the price of the yellow metal headed?

  • Downward Pressure Mounting

    March 15, 2018, 7:24 AM
    Downward Pressure Mounting

    Stocks extended their short-term losses on Wednesday, as they retraced most of last week's Friday's rally. The broad stock market failed to continue its rebound from February 9 low despite technology stocks reaching new record highs. Investors' sentiment worsened again following economic news, trade war fears. There are still two possible future scenarios. Or maybe three, but the third one is the worst.

  • Upcoming Turnaround in Gold

    March 14, 2018, 7:56 AM
    Upcoming Turnaround in ...

    More than two weeks ago, we described the very specific and very important pattern in the gold market, one of short- and medium-term importance. We wrote that the triangle apex pattern based on the intraday highs, pointed to a major reversal in the first half of March. The first half of March ends this week, so the key question is if the pattern was invalidated or are we about to see a major reversal in the price of gold.

    March 12, 2018, 9:27 AM
    Silver Does it ...

    In the alert that we posted last Monday, we warned that Friday’s session was likely to be volatile and tricky. This seems to have indeed been the case for silver. The white metal declined early in the day only to rally almost 40 cents from the initial low. In our previous alert, we discussed the possibility of silver topping at about $16.65 and this level was reached. Is silver about to take a dive just like it did in late November 2017?

  • S&P 500 at 2,800 Again, Breakout or Fakeout?

    March 12, 2018, 7:48 AM
    S&P 500 at ...

    Stocks rallied on Friday, as investors reacted to better-than-expected monthly Nonfarm Payrolls number release. The broad stock market retraced its late February move down, while technology stocks reached new record highs. Is this a new leg within multi-year bull market or still just retracement following late January - early February 12% sell-off? Let's take a look at possible future scenarios.

  • Riding the Current Wave in Bitcoin

    March 9, 2018, 10:37 AM
    Riding the Current ...

    In a move surprising to some, the SEC has announced that a number of cryptocurrency exchanges must register with the agency. Without naming names, the race has begun to determine if a specific platform meets the definitions put forward by the SEC. As our readers are aware, this is actually not surprising at all. In fact, it is only one small step in a broader trend recognizable in the Bitcoin market. How this specific event translates into the current trading conditions is what’s most interesting from a trader’s perspective. And we have indeed seen one specific change which may influence your profits.

  • Make Gold, Not (Trade) War!

    March 8, 2018, 10:31 AM
    Make Gold, Not ...

    “So it begins.” This is what King Theoden said right before the Battle of Helm’s Deep in the Lord of the Rings. Fortunately, the army of Uruk-hai doesn’t threaten the kingdom of men. But something else – also dreadful – endangers us. Trade wars.

  • $10 Move in Crude Oil in Just 1 Month? Impossible vs. “I’m Possible”

    March 8, 2018, 8:36 AM
    $10 Move in ...

    Sounds crazy, right? But from time to time crazy is something that does indeed take place, and these are the times when the prepared are much more profitable than those who were caught with their guard down. There is one analogy that points to the possibility of seeing such a big move in the price of crude oil. What if?

  • Stock Market Shrugs Off Trade War Fears, But Will It Go Higher?

    March 8, 2018, 7:21 AM
    Stock Market Shrugs ...

    Stocks closed virtually flat on Wednesday, despite Tuesday's potentially negative resignation of Gary Cohn, the head of President’s National Economic Council. It heightened trade war fears. The market opened lower, but it reversed its intraday downtrend, as investors used the opportunity to buy stocks. The S&P 500 index extended its short-term consolidation following Friday's bounce and Monday's advance. Will it break higher today?

Gold Market Overview

In this edition of the Market Overview, we focus on the most significant drivers of gold prices. We distinguish three such factors – and we examine how they affect the price of gold. In general – and in the first four months of 2018 in particular. Knowing what really impacts the gold prices enables investors to make better decisions. They can skip the analyses which concentrate on the gold mining supply or the average production costs – and focus on the true factors.
