I said last week that anything which is pro Russia in Ukraine will be rejected by the USA and its NATO allies in Sundays referendum. I am right now. Pro-Russian groups hailed a large majority in favor of secession in a referendum they organized in eastern Ukraine that was dismissed as illegitimate by the government in Kiev and its U.S. and European allies. Tensions between Russia and NATO will continue. Prolonged tensions will benefit bullion in the long term. In the short term gold and silver are in a neutral zone to bearish zone.
Repeated failure of gold to trade over $1300 is a bearish signal. Short term traders and investors will use every rise to exit their gold investments. The chances of a fall below $1260 to $1242 and $1228 will be very high this week. (In case gold trades below $1304). Silver is caught between short term bears and long term bulls. In case silver does not break $1980 this week, then the chances of a fall to $1810 will be very high. This is the technical picture this week. Key US economic data releases include (a) Retail sales on Tuesday (b) Consumer price index on Thursday (c) Housing starts on Friday.
US retail sales numbers will be the key. I expect numbers to beat street expectations on the higher side. Easter spending across the USA and the Eurozone has been very high.
