Gold knocking on the door of resistance at $1750

Gold knocking on the door of resistance at $1750

One thing in particular that really stands out to me in today’s trading session is the resilience of the gold market even as the safe haven trades were being put back on by a decent sized contingent of traders. The Euro got knocked down about 50 points and the US Dollar saw a pop higher as traders were expressing signs of nervousness over both Greece and now Portugal. Additionally, the long bond rallied up nearly a full point and is once again at the top end of a trading range that is now three months in duration. This combined with the fact that Euro Gold is extremely strong tells us […]

Gold Bullion Headed for Biggest Monthly Gain this Century

Gold Bullion prices were headed for their biggest calendar month gain this century by Tuesday lunchtime in London. Gold Prices hit $1745 per ounce – just shy of 14% higher than the Dollar Gold Bullion price set at the last London Fix of 2011. By this measure, January 2012 looked set to record the fourth-largest calendar month gain in the last three decades, and the biggest since September 1999, the month that saw the signing of the Central Bank Gold Agreement, which limited the sales of Gold Bullion by signatory central banks. Stocks and commodities also gained Tuesday, while government bond prices dipped. “In overnight trade in Asia, we continued […]

What is Euro Gold telling us?

What is Euro Gold telling us?

Gold priced in terms of the Euro continues to be most impressive on the chart as it creeps ever closer to its all time high. This move upwards is a visual telegraph that there remains deep-seated concerns over the European sovereign debt situation, especially on the Continent itself, in spite of the recent euphoria over “free money” for the next two years. While the Fed has given the markets, and in particular, the wild-eyed hedge fund community, the green light to buy “risk assets”, there is an underlying current of palpable worry which remains in our global markets. Short-term oriented players are betting that they are faster than the next guy […]

Junior Gold Stocks Rebound from Lows

Junior Gold Stocks Rebound from Lows

The junior sector had a very difficult year in 2011 but has led the recent recovery (at least statistically) in the precious metals sector. Two of our favorite exchange traded funds, GDXJ and ZJG.to are up 30% and 25% respectively. That exceeds GDX (large caps) which has rebounded 15%. These are significant gains but barely put a dent in the low valuations for the sector. Ratio analysis shows us how undervalued the smaller gold stocks are yet an examination of history shows this is not out of the ordinary at this point in a bull market. First lets take a technical look at the juniors. We show ZJG.to and GDXJ […]

Why Gold Is Shining Bright & What the Fed is Doing

Why Gold Is Shining Bright & What the Fed is Doing

Well here we are, caught between resistance in the S&P 500 around the 1,330 area and support around the 1,300 price level. My last two articles have discussed why I was expecting a top in the coming days and weeks ahead, but prices just continued to work higher. One of the things that I pride myself in as a person who trades and writes about financial markets in public is that I am always honest. If I blow a call I fess up and admit it. When I have made mistakes in the past, I always try to learn something new from them and I discuss losing trades publicly with […]

Chinese are buying Gold “like cheap cabbage”

The wholesale market cost of Buying Gold rose to $1728 per ounce Monday morning in London – down slightly on last week’s close – while stocks, commodities and the Euro all fell and government bond prices gained as European leaders met for their latest summit in Brussels. The cost of Buying Silver fell to $33.08 at one point – a 2.6% drop from where it ended last week. Gold fell as low as $1718 per ounce Monday morning, dropping steadily during Asian trading, though this represented a loss of only 1% on Friday’s closing price. “Everybody seemed to be expecting profit taking out of Shanghai after the two Chinese bourses came back online,” said […]

The Stock Market and the Dollar Sustain the Bullish Environment for Precious Metals

The Stock Market and the Dollar Sustain the Bullish Environment for Precious Metals

This week marked the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese calendar, and according to Chinese mythology, Dragon years bring powerful changes and optimism representing imperial power, prosperity and good luck. This year is supposed to be even more auspicious since it’s a Water Dragon year, something that occurs once every 60 years. We admit that we don’t yet use the Chinese Horoscope as a technical indicator, and who knows, perhaps we should. One thing is certain—the Year of the Dragon began with an auspicious move for precious metals. The dragon that breathed fire into precious metals prices was the Federal Reserve which announced this week that it is planning […]

With news from the Fed causing tremendous upside action in gold this week, and reports coming in from Los Angeles describing a massive military exercise in the streets of Los Angeles, today King World News interviewed Gerald Celente, Founder of Trends Research and the man many consider to be the top trends forecaster in the world. Celente had this to say about the Fed announcement and subsequent press conference: “You can see what’s happened to gold prices and how they’ve spiked up. There’s no way out and it’s not only the Federal Reserve, it’s also the European Monetary Union. Look at the games they are playing. We just saw, at […]

Money Flowing back into Commodities

Money Flowing back into Commodities

Note the CCI chart and the nearly vertical lift over the last week. Money is pouring back into RISK ASSETS as the Dollar heads lower and the Fed keeps interest rates so low that money is free. This is the perfect environment for the wild-eyed speculator, especially the hedge fund types, who ADORE LEVERAGE and will shove as much money as they can wrap their fingers around into the commodity sector in anticipation of inflationary price rises. By the way, just take one look at the following chart of unleaded gasoline if you have the stomach for it. Every time you head to the gasoline pump and fill up, you […]

Gold regains half of its losses from the record peak price

Gold regains half of its losses from the record peak price

Technicians make a big deal out of the 50% Fibonacci retracement level due to the psychological implications of that level in the minds of traders, both bulls and bears. Generally speaking,  those who have been on the wrong side of a trade and who have very deep pockets, will oftentimes allow the market to continuing moving against them while they wait for the inevitable price retracement, either higher or lower depending on which side of the market that they are on. Once they regain half of their losses, they will oftentimes then finally get out of the losing trade and move to the sidelines to access their next move. That means […]

Euro Gold right at Resistance level

Euro Gold right at Resistance level

Take a look at the following chart of gold priced in Euros, or “Euro-Gold” as I prefer to term it. I have mentioned here and on some of my KWN Weekly Metals Wrap that this chart is one that all gold traders must continue to reference if they are to get a proper handle on the technical aspects of this market. The reason for this is that the issue most shaking the gold market during the “risk off” trades was the mess in the sovereign debt situation of many countries in the Euro-Zone. Fears over that factor were seeing European-based buying of gold as doubts over the integrity of the […]
