COMEX FUTURES REPORT
Indian gold and silver demand will be on the higher side this week due to a number of festivals. Any signs of a stabilization in the US hiring market will be bullish for gold and silver. An Israel-Hamas peace deal (if any) will be closely watched, progress of ISIS in Iraq among others will affect bullion. There has to be indications of a sustained peace in the Middle East and the North Africa region to reduce the safe haven part in gold and silver. Libya also is in fire.
Historically the September to November period has been bullish for gold and silver due to higher Asian demand and/or demand by Asians living globally. This trend should be repeated this year also.
I once again repeat what I have been repeating over the past few weeks, US economic data will be bearish for gold and silver if and only if they beat street expectations by a wide margin. People are just looking for interest rate hike prospects for next year in the USA and UK.
A BIT ON MY COUNTRY INDIA – perception of the common man in Delhi after the Modi government
The common man perception as well as perception small and medium sized entrepreneurs, small shops etc in Delhi is that “The slogan of NDA that acche din aane wale hai was just an imaginary creation”. Reason for this is that inability of the government to control prices of fruits and vegetables. Zooming of expenses to survive has resulted in reduced expenses on or before festival days. If there is reduced expenditure then small shopkeepers in locality and other very small entrepreneurs get very meagre sales. This has been the case in Delhi in “Eid” and there is expectation that this will be repeated on “Rakhi day” which is on Friday. Now a days festivals are celebrated with a burden. I believe that the NDA government has the power to bring down prices of fruits and vegetable in whatever short period it has been there. The people are now once again leaning towards the “Aam Aadmi Party”. They should get a very heavy majority if and when there is elections in Delhi. It will be “Bure din for the Bhartiya Janta party” in Delhi state elections.
Gold needs to fall below $1276 or break $1313 for direction. Silver needs to fall below $2010 or break and trade over $2070 for direction. Crude oil needs to trade over $96.00 for the rest of the month to prevent a long term technical breakdown.
