- Technically gold, silver, copper and crude oil are all bullish.
- The next two days are very crucial for gold and silver from a technical perspective.
Gold is firmly entrenched over $1310 but needs to break $1331 for another set of rise. There are still huge short positions in gold and silver. The problems is that whenever gold and silver consolidates for a few hours, traders go short. In my view traders are still holding on to their short positions. Unless there is a $20-$25 instant rise in the gold price (from current levels), these short positions will not get squared off. Silver needs to trade over $2125 to be in an intraday bullish zone.
China, the largest foreign U.S. creditor, reduced holdings of U.S. Treasury debt in December by the most in two years as the Federal Reserve announced plans to slow asset purchases. Reduced issuance of bond purchases will result in nations reducing their US treasury holdings. However unofficially China continues to increase its gold reserves which itself suggests that the long term bullish trend is intact for gold. The inverse correlation between central bank purchases and their US treasury holdings will be for the rest of the year.
Physical demand for gold and silver should rise as the week progresses. There will be buyers on dips as long as gold trades over $1290 and silver trades over $2036 in the near term. Higher energies prices will dent emerging market growth.
