Considering the daily chart of gold, it seems Gold is at very critical point where it needs to make a break to go for either towards north or south. However, it shows more potential to go towards north as far as my calculation is concerned.

I guess your "calculation" doesn't look at the fact price is only $17 higher than where it opened the year - 5 months ago !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

And also closed near the lows for the week.

Sure hope nobody acted on all that "good" investment advice thrown around lately.

 

Oh wait I forgot it is going lower which means sale prices ding, ding. ding - making it an even better investment choice. :roll eyes: Well unless it doesn't stop going lower ... and lower. About the point investors sell it will stop. And a bottom is found.

 

Happens every time.

...been vacationing/gone almost six weeks, still it is extremely easy to catch up with this thread.

 

 

 

... Might be a good one to invest some here too....
Well at least technically it looks very good investment over the next 3 years. We'll see

That word “invest”. They keep throwing the word.

Do we have a whole generation ‘coming up’ that does not have a clue what ‘investing’ actually is? ... Symptomatic of deeper, more profound cyclical ‘financial’ dysfunction?

 

................................................

 

Looks like gold has shown a lot of promise recently. Might be a good one to invest some here too. vbulletin-smile.gif

 

Hi markjacks,

Why do you think it will be a good investment.?:confused:

...

Now I have to ask - WHY do you say that?

 

:crap:

 

bobsee and sunnyd, Even you two bozo’s ;) deserve * better answers than you got...

 

 

................................................................................

 

... seems Gold is at very critical point where it needs to make a break to go for either towards north or south...

Be aware, gold has been “at very critical point where it needs to make a break” before ... and could again stay there for 10 years or more :spam: just sayin...

Meanwhile good old Silver broke to lows not seen since 2010 or before the great bull market!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gasp!

 

I've been saying for a while that Silver has been leading Gold.

 

But maybe I might the attention of those "investors" by saying it has been the Euro contagion and slowing, slowing Chinese economy leading Silver demand down, down, down. As well as the price thereof and price of Gold and ... oh fughtebouit.

SunTrader makes an interesting comment..... the slowing Chinese economy.:missy:

Could this be a possible reason for Golds weakness?:roll eyes::roll eyes:

I have always looked at the $ / Gold negative correlation

And Gold / Interest rates.

And Gold / Oil

Forget about the store of value.

Now China.???:confused: China has been very strong while Gold has been falling for 2 years

All comments welcome

China is bearish for both Gold and Silver.

 

Look at their stock market bubble imploding (SSE down another 6% today). Margin calls in equities could get them selling some of their gold to raise funds.

 

But mainly slowing economy there means less need for Silver. And as I have say repeatedly industrial need for Silver drives the price ... as well very often the price of Gold.

A way to see the Gold / Silver interplay is with a ratio chart.

 

In the past, over the long term, as the ratio goes higher, Gold goes lower (although it is not quite directly apparent over the short term):

The dollar is more and more precious to billions and billions of people.

To you ?

 

...

just a thought or two...

All those new paper shorts do have to cover sooner or later...

All it takes is a swan (of any color) for PM's to 'bounce' ... and the tiniest bounce would force almost all those newest paper shorts to cover immediately... (rather than meet m calls...)

 

After that, of course, PM's could resume their deflationary work... :missy:

Except open interest dropped a pretty good chunk yesterday - and I believe as well today, but won't know for sure till tomorrow.

    • Date : 28th October 2020.Alphabet Q3 earnings: Focus on advertising revenue.Once again the FAANGs excluding Netflix plan to report their earnings the same day within 30 minutes of each other. FAANGs illustrate 20% of the S&P500’s total value. Even though most of them face increasing antitrust scrutiny, all posted an impressive rally this year as their shares have surged and sustained close to record highs as the pandemic reckoned with online services such as shopping, streaming, clouds.Hence in addition to our earnings articles, today we will focus also on Alphabet’s third quarter earnings for 2020 which will be reported along with the rest of the giants. Just a quick reminder, Alphabet Inc. is a holding company and Google’s parent company. The company’s businesses include Google Inc. (which is the largest one) and its Internet products, such as Access, Calico, CapitalG, GV, Nest, Verily, Waymo and X. The company’s segments include Google and Other Bets.Alphabet’s report will be key after its first year-over-year revenue decline in company history in Q2 as a result of the lack of advertisement demand from the majority of businesses amid the economic slowdown globally. However the forecasts for Q3 have the company well positioned with the consensus recommendation “strong buy”, corresponding to the majority of the consensus recommendation from Reuters Eikon, as 30 out of 36 analyst firms recommend “buy” and “strong buy”, while only 6 recommend ‘hold’. Hence, no analyst firm is making a “sell” or “underperform” recommendation for the company.GROWTH FOR ALPHABET INCAccording to Zacks Investment Research and Reuters Refinitiv, the information service is expected to have $11.33 in earnings per share during the third quarter of 2020, which represents a yearly rise of 12% since the reported EPS for the fiscal quarter ending September 2019. Focus should also turn onto the revenues number which is projected to hit a 6% yoy spike, to around $42.8 billion, from the $40.49 billion reported last year. Net sales meanwhile are seen at $35.26 billion.Revenue by business segment:   Google Search & Other (ad revenue, dominated by Google Search) – consensus of $24.96 billion* YouTube ads – consensus of $4.38 billion* Google Network (ad sales on third-party websites/apps) – consensus of $5.07 billion (down 4%) Google Cloud – consensus of $3.32 billion* Google Other (Play Store, hardware, YouTube subscriptions) – consensus of $5.11 billion* Other Bets (Google Fiber, Verily, Waymo, etc.) – consensus of $153 million (down 1%) Despite the huge diversification of its portfolio, Alphabet Inc earns nearly 71% of its revenue from advertising. Hence even though, the travel sector is still weak the majority of the analysts remain bullish on the advertisement services of Alphabet into Q3 given the slightly ‘temporary as it seems’ recovery that we have seen as the pandemic eased over the summer and business began reopening. Morgan Stanley stated also that they came into earnings season positive about the online ad market recovery but grew more optimistic following Snap’s blowout ad revenue beat and better-than-expected ad results from Verizon subsidiary AOL, Sirius-owned Pandora, and Interpublic Group.The positive consensus for Q3 could also be driven by the shift of Alphabet to Google Play and YouTube to help its partners support their businesses. The majority of the analysts believe that we could see strength in YouTube ad pricing and the return of brand spending in its channel checks.Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai however highlighted in his latest statements GOOGL’s focus on non-advertising segments. Like tech giant and its cloudspace rival Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), GOOGL has the capacity and resources to strategically pivot, from a large “legacy” company to an aggressive emergent; in this case, from search to various ‘other segments’ offering potential growth.Meanwhile, the risks that Alphabet faces ahead of the report is the solid competition from Amazon in advertising business and cloud services but also the cold headwinds on the earnings front in addition to emerging regulatory challenges. Coming off a not-so-stellar Q1 reporting season, GOOGL fell short in Q2, reporting its first ever year-over-year quarterly decline.Earlier this week, the Justice Department, along with 11 Republican state attorneys general, filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, alleging an unlawful monopoly on search services and advertising. US Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen called GOOGL, “the gateway to the internet” and said the company “has maintained its monopoly power through exclusionary practices that are harmful to competition.”At this stage, we have to point out that a consensus recommendation, similarly to economic data forecasts, has a significant effect on the near-term stock price, as it represents a company’s wealth picture. Hence on every earning report, stock price is highly influenced by the comparison between the outcome and the expectations. The market tends to react positively if the outcome comes in better or at least in line with the forecast, while the price moves lower if the reported earnings miss expectations.Technically, the current Google price action has posted a sharp rally since the March panic with the stock rebounding from the $1,000 area to record highs at $1,732.41. Currently the asset is traded at the $1,524 area which is just a 23.6% loss from all-years highs. The overall bias remains strongly positive even though medium term momentum indicators signal a potential pullback lower.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 27th October 2020.USD improves, GBP Mixed, CB decisions & TRY.The Dollar firmed up into the London open and beyond, paring declines seen earlier in pre-Europe trading in Asia. The move drove gold and oil prices lower, too, indicating there has been some depth in dollar buying, although the magnitude of movement hasn’t been great.US equity index futures have managed modest gains after the S&P 500 closed with a 1.9% loss yesterday, though investor sentiment in global markets remains decidedly restive. Most Asian stock markets declined, and Australia’s ASX 200 equity index closed with a 1.7% loss in its worst single day performance in a month. Soaring positive Covid tests and the associated trend toward increasingly restrictive countermeasures, along with the risk of next week’s US election results being contested, and the delay in US stimulus relief, are keeping markets on edge. Overall strong Q3 economic data are being overlooked as markets look to what is appearing to be a grim winter ahead in the northern hemisphere, with risks of a double dip recession being factored in, especially in Europe. Amid this, the Dollar has been holding up, despite a narrowing in nominal US yields relative to peers in recent days, including Bunds and JGBs, revealing that the US currency is functioning as a safe haven currency again.The USDIndex index lifted back above 93.00, though remains down on yesterday’s and Friday’s highs at 93.11-13. EURUSD tipped back to levels around 1.1800 after posting a high at 1.1836. USDJPY remained settled in the upper 104.00s in what could be termed a consolidation of the steep decline seen last Wednesday but has tested below S1 below to 104.60. The pair remains about 0.7% down from week-ago levels. Sterling continued to trade without direction, overall, holding over 1.3000 around 1.3020. EU and UK trade talks continue in London through to tomorrow before relocating to Brussels. They are reportedly working to a mid-November deadline.Taking a step back, the currencies that are showing the biggest gains on the year-to-date are the ones that most would expect to have risen against the backdrop of the global pandemic crisis, being currencies of current account surplus economies, specifically ones that don’t have a high commodity export component. Thereby the Euro, Swiss Franc and Yen are the biggest gainers, while the dollar bloc and the likes of the South African Rand and Russian Ruble, among others, are showing the biggest year-to-date declines, save the politically savaged Turkish Lira. Turkey seems to be in dispute with all its neighbours and some further afield. The Central Bank holding rates last week has not helped its predicament – USDTRY printed a new all time high earlier at 8.1580.USDCAD lifted out of a correction low at 1.3169, with oil prices, although up yesterday’s lows, coming under moderate pressure during the early London session. WTI benchmark crude prices are down 6.5% from week-ago levels, and prospects for a sustained rebound look to be limited given the supply glut and weakening demand as Covid-containing measures intensify across Europe and some parts of North America. This backdrop should keep USDCAD underpinned. The pair has been trending lower since March, though we have been noting trend derailing risks. A run to levels around 1.3500 and above seems possible, as the BOC decision tomorrow and the US Election next week remain the key immediate fundamentals .Always trade with strict risk management.
