Global economic calculations could change due to the crisis in Iraq and the subsequent impact on crude oil prices. Iraq tensions will force the Federal Reserve to be hawkish on interest rates this week. They will not be very clear on the interest rate cycle for the rest of the year. There are huge short positions in gold and silver. If there is sustained short covering, then gold and silver could easily rise to $1335/$1400 (gold) and $20.40/$22.35 (silver). This week is very crucial for gold and silver. They have to rise and shine this week, or else RIP in the short term. I am bullish.
The months of June to September are very crucial for global economic growth. Emerging markets like India and China are trying to recover from last year’s woes. The USA has to continue its firm growth. A slowdown in global economic growth in the coming three and half months will be very bullish for gold and silver as talks over interest rate hikes in the USA and interest rate cuts in India and emerging markets will vanish.
It could be all about energy due to Iraq for everyone
Sustained higher energy prices will dent US economic growth and global growth. This is something which US president Barack Obama knows and European leaders know very well. They need to find a way of preventing energy prices from spiraling. Crude oil prices are controlled by America. US senate elections will be in November. What has happened in Iraq is created by the USA and only the USA will shape the future of the Middle East and the North African region.
Higher energy prices will be obviously bullish for gold and silver. The American summer holiday season will start next month. Higher energy prices can affect the travel plans by Americans next month. The Asian summer travel will end by the middle of next month. Travel industry gets hampered. There are a whole lot of multiplier effects due to higher energy prices.
A break of $1292 for gold will trigger another wave of rise to $1303 and $1315. Silver needs to break and trade over $20.14 for another wave of rise. Crude oil has to break and trade over $109 for another wave of rise.
MCX SILVER JULY – prices in Indian Rupees below
Key long term support is at 41259 and as silver needs to trade over 41259 this week to target 42835 and 43588. Initial resistance is at 42328. Today silver needs to break and trade over 42328 for another set of rise. Remain on the sidelines despite the bullish direction.
