- US February nonfarm payrolls this week will be the key.
- Gold is technically bullish
Developments in Ukraine will be closely watched by the world. Gold will regain the status of safe haven in case of a war between the current Ukrainian government aided by the USA and its NATO allies and Russia. Traders who went short in gold on the hope of a taper by the Federal reserve this month and other positive sets of US economic data releases could short cover. The developments in Ukraine in the next two weeks are very important and will only increase the intraday volatility in bullion.
The US and its European NATO allies are digging too much into Russian interest. Mr. Putin has been silent on Libya, Egypt and Syria. This is time he has made the right move by making the first call and surprising NATO. If Ukraine escalates for a few months, then we just might see the beginning of another cold war. Gold bulls will be very happy at these developments. I just hope energy prices do not zoom as sustained higher energy prices could just derail the current global economic recovery.
US February nonfarm payrolls this week will still be important. The European central bank meeting and its guidance on interest rates will also affect the euro and commodities.
