With the gold price rising in Asia this morning another attempt is being made to break through overhead resistance. The consolidation pattern looks just about complete, so today and tomorrow may well see a lot of market action. Already it has broken through $1,150. There were no sales or purchases of gold into or from the SPDR gold ETF or the Gold Trust. This leaves the holdings of the SPDR gold ETF at 687.196 tonnes and 160.62 tonnes in the Gold Trust. This leaves the market in a fairly balanced state today, one which favors a tipping of that balance one way or the other on small volumes. -Subscribewww.goldForecaster.com[See a site where protection from confiscation is offered to gold owners:www.Stockbridgemgmt.com ]The dollar is falling below levels not see for several months.We are of the opinion that this is what the Fed wants. In the main market analysts are seeing a bull market in the dollar, looking at the Technical picture in isolation. And that is what we would see if the Technical picture was all important. But the will of the Treasury and Fed, which can control the exchange rate rules, is against dollar strength! So while gold moved up in both the dollar and euro, it was in the dollar that we saw the most gains. It would only take a U.S. dollar exchange rate against the euro and gold at its current euro price of $1.145 to lift the $ gold price to $1,162!
With the annual meeting of the I.M.F. in Peru going on, the warnings of the dangers that lie ahead from that august institution are always pointing to the assumption that governments will rectify matters before these warnings become realities. A look at the last seven years of attempts to stave off these consequences tell us it is not realistic to expect government actions to succeed, if they are present at all. Central banks have done all they can to do, but they can only do so much. It is government’s turn to act. With the Fed postponing interest rate hikes because of the impact on the dollar and global economy the IMF’s warnings tell us the turmoil of last month in global financial markets may well be the start of a new era on financial disturbance going forward. We believe that world governments are fully aware of what lies ahead, so be ready for a turbulent future.
Silver–Silver is steadier today and will now wait for gold to point the way. We feel that direction will be given soon. -Subscribe www.SilverForecaster.com ]
