This is a US nonfarm payrolls week. Over the past few months there has been more action on days before the release of this number than after the release of this number. Many a times the reaction to the number have been subdued. Another thing which confuses me is the whether a really good number (if any) can actually sway the investor to shun gold and invest elsewhere. Most of the good news of the US economy has already been factored in.
The US economy could see a couple of months of consolidation phase and thereafter a period of another wave of higher growth rates. Investor’s dilemma towards bullion could increase if the US economy moves into a consolidation phase. I will also not ignore the possibility of the Federal Reserve “crying wolf” on interest rates. The Federal Reserve can raise interest rates till April next year. NATO expansionist policies can continue till April 2016. Whatever crap the US president does to increase the miseries of Americans living in America and increase the miseries of the world population will be till April 2016. The period from May 2016, will begin the American election process. The American voters are no idiots. The will elect someone who is responsible to Americans and someone who will try to ensure a world peace. For a few months from May 2016, American politicians will be governing for the masses. What I mean to convey is that gold and silver prices will zoom once there are any indications that US interest rates will not rise anymore.
Low global energy prices and low global interest rates so far has not translated into higher global growth. The cost of living is on the rise in every nation. I always maintain that unless the cost of survival essentials stabilize, there will be uneven growth within every country and among countries. This uneven growth if not controlled within nation causes mass unrest like the ones in Southern Europe. The end result is higher demand for safe havens.
