"Corporations who control Fed, most likely control most of the gold reserves anyway and could allow USD to fall faster than we expect"

 

In both cases USD DOWN, thats the point, I did not mention a scenario where USD is UP

The common thread running through all my (mostly off topic) posts re PM’s =

Gold is best seen as a wealth preservation hedge against depreciation of your other ‘money’ and as nothing else.

 

It becomes ignernt look at it as an investment...or be highly ‘price sensitive’... or even consider it a reliable trading instrument (as most of the time, there are other trading instruments that are providing more bang for the buck)

 

If you start accumulating real PM’s early enough in life, then ultimately you’ll find yourself learning to ratio trade gold v silver... and

As you accumulate more, you must learn to trade paper PM's... via hedging in derivatives... typically it's best to use methods that are ‘slow’ to get in and also slow to get out. Personally I lean towards more itchy to get in and out, but that is mostly from being present at a trading station 2 - 6 hours daily. When I’m not around - like in June most years - methods revert to less sensitive resting orders for lifting shorts, etc...

 

All the best,

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:

    • Date : 16th December 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 16th December 2019.Following a busy week ending with a Conservative victory in the UK election and rising hopes of a potential trade deal between UK and China, attention turns to the BoJ, PBoC and BoE monetary policy meetings next week. However, the developments on the US-China trade front will remain front and centre.Monday – 16 December 2019 Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 08-30-09:00) – The prel. November manufacturing PMI was revised up to 46.9 from 46.6, despite the signs that the weakness in manufacturing is starting to spread. The European PMI for December meanwhile is expected to released at 47.4. Manufacturing PMI (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK PMI is expected to register an upwards reading to 50.7 after the upwards revision last week at 48.9. Tuesday – 17 December 2019 RBA Meeting’s Minutes (AUD, GMT 00:30) – The RBA minutes provides 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. Employment and Earnings (GBP, 09:30) – Average earnings are expected to have increased by 3.8% in October, above the 3.6% the previous month. The ILO unemployment rate (3M) for October could rise at 3.9% from 3.8%. Wednesday – 18 December 2019 German IFO (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The German Business Sentiment Index released by the CESifo Group is closely watched as an early indicator of current conditions and business expectations in Germany. December’s numbers are expected unchanged. Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK inflation is seen unchanged to the downside in December, at 1.5% y/y, the lowest rate seen since November 2016 and after 1.7% in September. The core should be steady as well at 1.7%. Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Prices are expected to have eased slightly in December, with overall inflation expected to remain at 1% y/y, while core inflation at 1.3% y/y. Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 13:30) – The overall Canadian CPI and core should hold close to target, while the November Core outcome is expected to slip to -0.2% following the 0.4% jump in October. Thursday – 19 December 2019 Interest Rate Decision and Conference (JPY, GMT 03:00) – In the last meeting, 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 signaled its commitment to keep interest rates at current levels “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020”. BoJ Governor said in his statement that cutting rates further are a possible policy option, adding that he doesn’t think that Japan is near the reversal rate. He also said that he doesn’t think the BoJ needs to change the forward guidance now. Hence this is likely to remain the scenario in this week’s Monetary Policy Statement. Interest Rate Decision (GBP, GMT 12:00) – BoE should remain on hold until Brexit has been resolved. Thus, consensus forecasts suggest no change in the policy rate in this meeting, however an uTwo of the nine-member MPC dissented in favour of cutting the repo rate by 25 bps Friday – 20 December 2019 Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 13:30) – A Q3 GDP growth is expected up to 2.2% from 2.1%, with a -$1 bln trimming for factory inventories alongside a $4 bln hike for construction. The Q4 GDP growth estimate sits at 2.4%, with support from recent reports indicating a -4% Q4 drop in imports that adds to GDP, likely firmness in government purchases, a rebounding residential investment sector, and an expected bounce in equipment spending.

    • Date : 12th December 2019. Lagarde prepares ECB debut – 12th December 2019.   Policy unchanged Projections unlikely to change much Clues about review sought Style in focus Presiding over her first presser of the European Central Bank today, Lagarde is expected to confirm once again the current policy setting, giving time to ECB to focus on the planned review of its overall policy framework.Final Eurozone GDP and PMI readings broadly supported this neutral picture, while the confidence that a deep recession can be avoided is strengthening (Figure 1) despite the fact that German manufacturing and production numbers still look weak. The exports and the overall trade are actually holding up much better than expected, which together with still strong labour markets is underpinning hopes the net exports and consumption will continue to support growth not just in Germany.Figure 1 : December German ZEW investor confidence outcome, end the year firmly in positive territory at the highest level since February 2018.As there is nothing in the data really to challenge the ECB’s overall policy stance, the focus firstly turns into the tone and presentation style that President Lagarde will have. The “risk” is that the presser will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. Lagarde’s team building exercise seems to have worked and at least in public there has been a pretty consistent message since she took over, which is very likely to be confirmed today. Additionally it will be interesting to see whether she will back fully Draghi’s package.Citi Bank: All key interest rates will likely be left unchanged, and the forward guidance reaffirmed. The main interest at this meeting will be the new Eurosystem staff projections, extended to 2022, to gauge whether the September package will be sufficient to bring inflation back into line with the ECB’s target over the forecast horizon. If not, investors’ attention will quickly turn to the ECB’s toolbox and what instruments the Governing Council would be willing to use and when, in order to defend its credibility in the absence of large fiscal support. The upcoming strategic review of monetary policy will also likely be the focus of many questions.Hence as reported by Citi, other than Lagarde’s style, ECB projections could also monopolize the attention. Even though, the ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, it has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The central bank won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon with many analysts supporting that this will continue until mid-2020 unless there is a major change in circumstance.Central bankers will be conducting a comprehensive review of the policy framework, however, with a special focus on the inflation target. A more symmetric definition, which stresses that the ECB can see through lengthy inflation overshoots as well as periods of too low headline rates is likely to come in the first quarter of next year. The inclusion of owner-occupied housing costs into the HICP number also remains a challenge especially as house prices are rising rapidly in some centres, also thanks to the low interest rate environment.Bund yields have nudged higher over the past week, but the German 10-year so far failed to move lastingly above -0.3%. Uncertainty on trade and Brexit are keeping a lid on yields, although there is the risk that if things go the way markets want and a phase one trade deal is confirmed and in the UK PM Johnson gets his majority, there could be a sharp rise in yields, if markets price out further easing and start to look ahead to central banks removing some of the stimulus.However this is far away for now, while central bankers are not looking eager to add further easing.Always trade with strict risk management.
