The data vacuum gets over today. US may retail sales numbers will be the key. May US retail sale numbers do not have weather or Easter. A good number will result in traders expecting an interest rate hike this year only. A bad number can result in gold prices zooming to $1310 and silver zooming to $2040. That’s all I can comment.
Today’s US retail sale numbers is very crucial for gold and silver in the short term as well as the medium term. Speculation that India could reduce gold import duties has resulted in buyers as well as stockiest staying away from the market.
A bit on India
Yesterday the prime minister said in the parliament that Indian hirers should look at skill set and not at the degree while employing. His speech was more like a corporate board room speech and probably he considered states chief ministers as functional heads. Prime ministers Narendra Modis intention is right and even if he is able to deliver forty percent of what is promised, then India will be shining. Higher economic growth will by itself root out religious fundamentalism in India. After the Narsimha Rao government and Vajpayee government, I feel this government will bring long term changes in Indian governance system. Modi in Gujrat has introduced the concept of “Neo Middle class” model for higher growth. “Neo middle class” are people above poverty but if given a proper job opportunity could rise and shine. Higher jobs creation for this section of society will lead to higher demand for goods and services by them and will result in a huge section of population participating in growth. (Western style of capitalism is for a very small section of population contributing to higher economic growth. This will not be the case with Modi).
Gold needs to break and trade over $1267 for further gains. Silver needs to break and trade over $1937 for further gains. The next three trading sessions are very crucial for gold and silver from a technical perspective.
