Gold Erases Post- Election Fall as Trump Wrong on Dollar

Gold Bullion Erases Post- Election Fall as Trump Wrong on Dollar – Daily Prophet

Robert Burgess of Bloomberg Prophets

President Donald Trump sent currency markets into a tizzy late Wednesday when he signaled his preference for a weaker dollar. “I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that’s my fault because people have confidence in me,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal.

Although the greenback immediately dropped before stabilizing Thursday, that’s only part of the story. In fact, it has been falling all year as traders lose confidence in Trump’s ability to push his pro-business, pro-growth policies through Congress. Judging by the Federal Reserve’s U.S. Trade Weighted Real Broad Dollar Index, the currency is weaker now than at the end of November, the month of Trump’s election victory. Other markets are sending similar signals. Stocks are rolling over and yields on Treasuries suggest optimism for stronger economic growth is quickly fading.

BULLISH ON GOLD
It’s no wonder that perhaps the only market hotter than the one for Treasuries is the one for gold. Bullion is up 11.4 percent this year to $1,289.10 an ounce. In a survey this week, traders and analysts were the most positive on gold since December 2015, according to Bloomberg News’ Eddie van der Walt and Ranjeetha Pakiam.

In yet another bullish sign, prices have climbed above the 200-day moving average and Britain’s Royal Mint said bullion purchases jumped 20 percent in the first quarter.

“We have all these latent threats that have been around for a while, Trump, European elections, Brexit, and they’re all just becoming a little more acute,” said Mark O’Byrne, a director at broker GoldCore Ltd. in Dublin.
