Holiday (Thanksgiving Day) here in the U.S Thursday which means low volume so stops either direction can be taken out easily.


Yes, the incubus at work.


Generally, though, there are not enough committed buyers entering the market. A committed buyer is not someone who sells at the slightest move down or sells because of a lack of movement. A non-committed buyer is neither dumb nor astute; he is simply not committed to the upside.

Gold is still in the consolidation phase around 1191.15-1221.13. Note the resistance 1221.13 and support at 1191.15. Gold potentially will resume weaken towards the range 1172.63-1142.65 if successfully penetrate the support 1191.15. Beware if gold broke through 1221.13 resistance, because it can open up the possibility of targeting support at 1239.65-1251.11 rose gold.


As I observed in my mercerfx platform, Technically XAUUSD still tend to lead to lower recall is still in a phase of consolidation and remain in the medium term decline groove with its position that until now still under the medium-term declining trend line.

Something on Silver:


Silver Seen Starting Slow, Then Gaining Speed Toward End Of 2015


Silver could struggle in the early part of 2015 as markets continue to factor in expectations for Federal Reserve tightening and as growth in industrial demand remains constrained by soft economies in other parts of the world.


But by the end of the year, many analysts see silver regaining its luster on ideas that any Fed rate hikes are likely to be modest and industrial demand may start picking up, assuming the economy shows improvement.


For instance, TD Securities sees silver averaging $15.50 an ounce in the first quarter but $19.50 in the fourth. Commerzbank looks for the second quarter to be the weakest of the year with an average $16 forecast, but for improvement to $18 in the fourth quarter.


Some of the average full-year 2015 forecasts made by firms so far include Natixis, $15.20; Citi Research, $16.50; Commerzbank, $17; HSBC, $17.65; and TD Securities, $17.81. Among consultancies, Metals Focus looks for $16.20 and CPM Group $16.65.

To say that gold is in a bear market is to misunderstand both gold and markets. Gold isn’t an investment that goes up and down. It is money in the most basic store-of-value sense. Most of the time it just sits there, and when its price changes in local currency terms that says more about the local currency than about gold.


But when currencies collapse, gold shines.


Consider the above from the point of view of a typical Russian. The ruble is tanking (no need to understand why — all fiat currencies go this way eventually and the proximate cause is almost irrelevant). ...[since ~Nov 15th / in one month - gold has gone from ~52k RUB to ~ 76k RUB .... ] Russians who trusted their government and kept their savings in, say, a bank account, are losing their shirts. But those who own boring, doesn’t-pay-interest, in-a-bear-market gold have seen their capital appreciate in local currency terms by about 60 percent in just the past month. They’re not “making money,” but they are preserving wealth.


This is how it has gone always and everywhere when governments have destroyed their currencies. In the Roman Empire, revolutionary France, revolutionary America, most of Latin America in the 20th century, and now big parts of the developing world, local currencies evaporate but gold just sits there, buying the same amount of stuff as ever, impervious to the games governments play.


It won’t be long before this ...is replicated in a whole lot of other places. But by then it will be too late to prepare. The gold will be gone and those who trusted their governments will have to make do with promises.

on the other hand....

is there a currency that gold has been going up in in the last 1-2-5-10 years?


Gold can certainly have a bear market - any one who thinks it cant does not understand markets. If you are based in USD and own USD gold at price X and it is now worth less than X = loss.

It is like any other store of wealth - except it has been better than some over the long term....far worse than others.

the example of the Russian trade is simply an FX trade - not a gold trade.


Everything is a swap!

Eventually we die, just as fiat currencies eventually dwindle. In the meantime......paper scissors doh!

… the regular programming sure started right back up.


"Gold can certainly have a bear market "

Let's hope so! The stupid stuff has been in a 6000 year bubble :)


"the example of the Russian trade is simply an FX trade - not a gold trade"

actually from a russian's pov, it was not an FX trade, nor a gold trade. It was a 'non trade' that made the example


And to the linked article… here’s a digest

Boys and girls… Swap all the gold you have for something else as quickly as possible. Follow these recommendations from your friends who are paid (and unpaid… voices of trading ) to encourage you to exchange, trade, and swap papers and stuff as much as possible-

> Never come off your ‘investment’ perspective. (really it’s ‘our’ investment perspective - to always measure valuation in terms of fiat and productivity ... to always mentally see and operate as if storing value, investing, and trading are all identical activities - but you best accept it and never question it and make it yours too)


> Best to “swap” ‘it’ into currency. That way you’re primed to "swap" again for something that Buffett isn’t "swapping" for… like safely loan it out at almost usurious rates, or take stakes in companies that now systemically just can’t ever go down in value, or get slick and "swap" this currency for another that is ‘moving’.

…someday maybe use technical and sentiment analysis to accumulate some gold again …


however But - if you want to swap for a more trending ‘store of value’ that is still ‘physical’…


> The following items from the article will hold value. They are indestructible and have no special environmental storage or transport requirements:

Autographs, Stamps, Memorabilia, Wine, Ceramic vases, Vintage cars, Art works, Watches, Guns and ammo. They can all be thrown around and buried in plain dirt. (And speaking of dirt, don't swap for any of that sht either. It's not on the list.)


> List mentions Diamonds. Great choice! Like the other items above you don’t need any special knowledge or experience to swap diamonds cost free…


> The final item on the list, coins, really shouldn’t even be on their list. Why? The first words in the article title were “Forget Gold”


Gold is bearish. ... as in currencies are better ... as in Most don't want it.

Don't be one of the ones who do want it. Forget gold. Gold is bearish... end digest

the regular programming never stopped with the belief that gold is king and there are no alternatives.



....as for the Russian example - please enlighten us as to how to preserve wealth by non trading or swapping :).

The trade mentioned was an FX trade - class 101. The wealth was preserved because the ruble tanked not because gold was a great investment. Anything other than Rubles might have been good.

Diversification is still probably the best wealth preserver but most of us dont have 6000 years. :doh:


2 other thoughts...


1) I like the Walking dead (more for the moral dilemmas it raises) - why dont these guys talk about their store of gold. Even experts in Zombie apocalypses dont put all their belief in gold.


2) Given its Christmas - what happened to the gold the baby Jesus got on his birth?

Clarificaton of my msg - ie more off topic repetition

The message is simple. Each person needs to differentiate for self between trading, investing, and wealth preservation. Check the narrative in your posts. It acutely mishmash conflates all three of them.


The “Regular programming” in here on this TL thread is traders / “swappers” doing their TA and sentiment thang. I am first and foremost a trader so I have nothing against it and trading paper PM’s… except in most times there are contracts that provide more bang for the buck…except ‘trading’ it based on the background collective memehope that it will again go especially parabolic ‘works’ only 1 in 30 times it is ‘predicted’…


Culturally, typical ‘regular programming’ is MSMs doing anything but ‘gold buggin’ … they never stop sabotaging beliefs that gold might possibly be king. They never stop promoting alternatives. They mish PM’s into the ‘investments’ category - ignoring that investments must be productive. In your MSM supportive story, since 19xx or 20xx, it has even performed horribly against all other assets and other “fx trades”. On one front is a narrative to sustain the false dialectics of paper bugs vs gold bugs. It promotes “swapping” as fast as possible to discourage ‘investing’ in gold as a vote of no confidence in cash producing businesses… programming you to diversify as much as possible into paper debt tickets of an insolvent global private banking corporation whose only saving grace is the ability to create more paper debt tickets at will and without supervision. In this “Regular programming” meme, ‘gold’ can be nothing but price sensitive. … for the record, I never ‘invest’ in PM’s.


In uncontaminated ‘preservation of capital’, one’s perspective is NOT price sensitive - period. Again, each person needs to clearly demarcate for him or her self between trading, investing, and wealth preservation. As gold only goes parabolic 1 in 30 times it is predicted to, even more rarely - ~ 1 in 300 times? - that it is ‘predicted’ , the system eventually does an‘ accounting’ of financialization - with an inevitable and very rare transfer of wealth to the people that own gold and silver. Who knows? and Who knows when? Prior to that - - PMs may even become a useless relic - especially on ‘spiritual’ levels… then suddenly .,. like “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.” Vladimir Ilich Lenin * BANG !! Enough ( off topic ) said. I only post in this thread to encourage those coming behind me to make those stark demarcations for themselves... We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming replete with its confirmation and conservation biases to continuity and business as usual… meanwhile scissors cut your paper at a non alarming target of 2% per year … compounded… etc



Re: “zombies”

Physical Gold is about preservation of capital for light, life, and growth… no surprise zombies and their potential targets have no apparent access to or utility for it in their stories. “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside of you as fate.” CG Jung


Re: "baby Jesus’s gold" - Joseph diversified most of it into shekels for groceries. He later sold the rest to put Jesus through carpenter college. Like most messiahs, Jesus never releases his transcripts… there are whispers that he dropped out.

Jesus was a Capricorn

He ate organic food

He believed in love and peace

And never wore no shoes

Long hair, beard and sandals

And a funky bunch of friends

Reckon we'd just nail him up

If he came down again

Most of us hate anything that

We don't understand

Prine? Kristoferson?

Saxo Bank See Gold Ending 2015 On A Strong Note

Wednesday December 24, 2014



Gold could be set for a strong breakout in the second half of 2015 as a year of consolidation wraps up said one European commodity analyst.


Saxo Bank is still working on their 2015 annual forecasts but Kitco News spoke with Ole Hansen, head of commodity strategist for the Danish bank to get his preliminary thoughts on the gold market for 2015.


“Major investing firms are still lukewarm on gold,” he said. “But I would be cautious about being too much on the negative bandwagon.”



Ole Hansen, head of commodity research at Saxo Bank

A last minute drive in equity markets is helping to drag gold prices down and it appears the yellow metal will end the year on a softer note. However, because of the current holiday market conditions, Hansen said investors will have to wait until after the first couple of weeks in January to get a clear direction for the gold market at least in the near-term.


Hansen is slightly more optimistic on the gold market for 2015 compared to other analysts as he thinks the yellow metal could end next year around $1,250. But it won’t be a definitive move higher, at least in the first few months of the year; in the short-term, it appears prices will struggle and might even break below the 2014 lows, he said.


Hansen said that for the start of the year he could see gold prices fall to $1,100 or even $1,080 an ounce as the U.S. dollar continues to dominate the marketplace and investors adjust to normalized U.S. interest rates.

    • #analysis #forex #followme #socialtrading The #GBPUSD is trading at 1.2410 due to no positive Brexit developments and an on-going Parliament deadlock at the UK. The #UK #PM Boris Johnson’s Luxembourg visit failed to provide any key updates. The EU President criticized the Tory leaders’ depth of details while British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab reiterated the PM”s pledge to leave on October 31 and also passing the bucket of criticism back to the EU. The #USD stays on the front foot as the recent rise in #safe-haven demand, mainly due to the attacks of Saudi Arabia, joins hands with optimism surrounding the US-China trade talks, up for early October. While the absence of data, except the US Industrial Production for August, is likely in support of carrying the previous move forward, any positive to the UK PM during the first day of hearings at the UK’s Supreme court could help the Cable recover some of its latest losses. #TechnicalAnalysis Unless providing a daily closing beyond 100-day simple moving average (DMA) level near 1.2510, the quote is less likely to rise towards mid-July highs surrounding 1.2580, which in turn highlights the importance of 1.2380 and 50-DMA level of 1.2280 during further declines.

It would be a major shock if the Fed doesn’t deliver. But some, including Donald Trump, want more than just 25 basis points. In fact, the US President has called for “boneheads” Fed to cut rates to zero or lower in a tweet this week. Understandably, with US data not deteriorating as badly as, say, Germany, the Fed is reluctant to cut aggressively and rightly so. The risk therefore is that the Fed refuses to provide a dovish outlook for interest rates. In this potential scenario, a rate cut might only weigh on the dollar momentarily. With most other major central banks already being or turning dovish, the Fed will also need to be super dovish for the dollar to end its bullish trend. Otherwise, the greenback may find renewed bullish momentum, even if the Fed cuts by 25 basis points.     The #Swiss National Bank will have to say about the #ECB’s decision to resume bond buying, given the recent appreciation of the franc against the shared currency. The #BoJ is unlikely to respond to the #ECB’s resumption of bond buying. It may keep the current policy of controlling the yield curve. For one, the global economy hasn’t deteriorated too significantly to exacerbate deflationary pressures in the export-oriented Japanese economy. For another, the there’s only limited number of policy options left at the BoJ's disposal. Thus, cutting short-term interest rates further into the negative may be an option, but to be used on another occasion.
    • Hi everyone, The latest Commitments of Traders review is out. Brazilian Real COT Change (52W) / C - 54%, LS – 54% / FTG Score / D -24,1, W -36,7, M -25,9 / All major cot signals are indicating that we have a good chance to see the market to rally. Wheat (Minn.) COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -25.7, W -31.3, M -29.7/ All time cot extremes are always highly valued, but we should be careful, since history has proven that we can be in such a place for a long time before we see the major trend change… Nevertheless we should be prepared to see Wheat go higher. Sugar COT Extreme / C, LS – All Time COT extreme / FTG Score / D -28.6, W 26.4, M -45.2 / Well I could simply copy+paste what I just wrote for Wheat but actually there are some differences here… If you look carefully, you may find Sugar to be in a bullish extreme since mid 2017, and we have still not been able to leave the bear market…. So even with this all time cot extreme, one should be willing to accept the high chance that Sugar will stay low even with such extremes! All the best, Dunstan COT Charts FOREX Trading Futures Trading
    • Date : 16th September 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 16th September 2019.Welcome to our weekly agenda, our briefing of all the key financial events globally. The week ahead is expected to be a massive one, as four of the major Central banks will announce their rate decision, i.e. Fed, BoJ, SNB and BoE. There is a lot of interest in seeing whether BoJ will follow the Fed’s steps next week in cutting rates. Monday – 16 September 2019   Industrial Production and Retail Sales (CNY, GMT 02:00) – The Chinese Industrial Production growth is expected to have risen, at 5.2% y/y in August from 4.8% y/y last month. A slightly positive reading is also expected in the Retail Sales figure at 7.9% from 7.6%. Tuesday – 17 September 2019   Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes (AUD, GMT 01:30) – The RBA minutes, similar to the ECB Reports, provide a detailed assessment of the bank’s most recent policy-setting meeting, containing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced the rate decision. They are usually a cause for FX turbulence. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Economic Sentiment for September is projected at -38.0, from the lowest level since 2011 at -44.1 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The ZEW is a pretty clear indication that investors are gearing up for a much higher risk of a global recession, which ties in with developments in global bond yields and the marked flattening of curves. Wednesday – 18 September 2019   Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 08:30) – The UK CPI inflation is anticipated to be more underwhelming than the July data, at 1.9% y/y from 2.1% y/y, with a monthly rise up to 0.5% m/m. Consumer Price Index and Core (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The final reading of inflation is expected to have held steady at 1.0% y/y and core at 0.9% y/y, with an increase in the monthly number at 0.2%m/m from -0.5%m/m. Lower energy price inflation keep a lid on the overall number meanwhile as CPI excluding energy moved up to 1.2% from 1.1% y/y last month. Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 12:30) – The August CPI is expected to continue adding to the backing for steady BoC policy this year, even as the Fed and ECB add stimulus. CPI has been forecasted to grow to a 1.7% y/y pace in August, below the 2.0% last month. Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (USD, GMT 18:00-18:30) – The August’s jobs data did little to alter the market’s expectations for a 25bp rate cut at the September 17-18 FOMC meeting. Based on Powell’s latest comments, the Fed is very committed to a symmetric 2% inflation goal, hence given low inflation, interest rates will remain low. That leaves very little room to cut rates further. The Fed is not forecasting or expecting a US recession, nor a global downturn, said Powell. The fact that the chair doesn’t seem too concerned about a recession in the States, or the world, suggests the FOMC is not going to be aggressive easing policy. Thursday – 19 September 2019   Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement (JPY, GMT 02:00) – The BoJ kept its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and its pledge to guide 10-year JGB yields around 0% while maintaining its asset buying program. The central bank is expected to signal once again its commitment to keep interest rates at current levels “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020”. The BoJ pledged to keep an eye on the output gap, but for now at least it seems the bank is seeing the risks as coming mainly from the outside. Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement (CHF, GMT 07:30) – The SNB kept policy on hold at the June council meeting. The Libor target was replaced with a key policy rate, but the central bank was adamant that the degree of monetary accommodation remains unchanged. After the ECB cut rates, while the Fed is now widely expected to ease rates, the SNB has little room to manoeuvre, especially against the backdrop of ongoing Brexit uncertainty and geopolitical trade risks. The SNB’s central message remains that the situation remains fragile and the currency “highly valued”. Interest Rate Decision, MPC Voting (GBP, GMT 11:00) – Shadowed by the ongoing political developments in Brexit, the BoE is not expected to proceed with any interest rate actions. Friday – 20 September 2019   Retail Sales ex Autos (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Retail sales and Core for August are seen steady, while the headline is anticipated to drop to 2.9% y/y from 3.3% and core to 2.5% from 2.9%.
