Gold has remained firm despite all kinds of confirmation that global economic growth is here to stay. Physical demand for gold across Asia should rise from next week. The Hindu festive season will begin from 14th July and end in the middle of November. There will be some kind of Hindu festival coming up every fifteen days between 14th July and the middle of November (except between 17th September and 2nd October which is the shradh period). Ramzan Eid on 29th July will also result in higher gold jewelry demand in India. (Over the past few years, I have observed that there has been a huge increase in demand for consumer durables in India around the Ramzan Eid period.)
Gold – Delinking from interest rate expectation possible in the long term
Over the past few years, traders and investors are just focused on interest rates and inflation direction by the USA, the Eurozone and the UK. It is also one of the key reasons why gold prices have fallen from $1930 to $1179. The Federal Reserve can raise interest rates by not more half a percent in two installments next year. Does half a percent interest rate hike imply that gold prices will boomerang? I do not think so. After an initial interest rate hike, the Federal Reserve will wait for a lot of time for the next move. There will be big wild one way swings for gold if and when real interest rates start to rise in the USA. The US administration under Barack Obama and John Kerry have only increased the misery of the people in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). John Kerry is a failed Vietnam War veteran and now his policies have failed in the MENA region. Gold will remain firm in the long term. The gold price manipulation which is being done by the Federal Reserve through Morgan Stanley and other “too big too fail” hedge funds cease to be effective in the next one year. People will realize that gold and metals have to be an important part of their portfolio. Gold in the long term will delink from changes in interest rate expectation and inflation expectation.
July to September period is a very crucial phase for the US economy in areas of business spending, consumer spending and hiring in all areas. Even if they stabilize in this period, one should expect higher interest rates by the Federal Reserve next year. I remain positive in silver in the long term. However I expect intraday volatility to zoom this quarter.
Gold has to break $1355 this week for another set of rise. In case gold does not break $1355 this week, then it will fall to $1296 and $1282 first.
It will be a technical trade with the US dollar as the key apart from Iraq risk.

Copper and silver are set for a very big rise. I just hope they rise.
