The story of the day was the Fed’s decision yesterday and the comments attending the announcement. With a vast array of commentary on this and the future of rate hikes, we suggest readers keep an eye on the overall perspective surrounding the announcement. To us it was clear that the Fed is data driven and the data is negative. Pertinently, the Fed announced it would monitor the global economy carefully. We have to factor in the changing global cash flow and note that the U.S. is not an island, but very much a part of the global economy, so it must take note the impact of U.S. interest rates, no matter how small. The Fed is seeing the U.S. in a global context, not just with its eye on the U.S. economy. The recent plunging of global markets bears testament to this. In particular, the level of the U.S. dollar exchange rate has become very, very important. We see the Fed as not being happy with it going any stronger and wants it to remain below 100, on the dollar index or lower.
The importance of this lies in the impact on the U.S. exports and imports which are very much a part of the global economy. Evidence of this is the declining market share of Boeing, losing to Europe’s Airbus. We see exchange rates in 2016 becoming a major focus of the global economy and a telling factor on gold prices, particularly the dollar.
But gold prices do not just reflect exchange rates and inflation. If they reflected inflation they would be moving around $15 a year at present, but we have seen that in the last week. The changing shape of the global gold demand and supply alongside fundamental structural changes in the gold markets will make the gold price in 2016.
