COMEX FUTURES REPORT
Gold has a key support at the 100 day moving average of $1217.10. The next wave of selling will be if gold trades below $1217.10 either in the UK session or the US session. US retail numbers today will be the key and can set the direction for the US dollar and bullion for the next three weeks. Over the past few months, there has been an increase in the US savings rate. An increase in the savings rate implies less consumption. Increases in employment numbers may not necessary translate into higher consumption.
In case US retail sale numbers are below street expectations then the US dollar could take a drubbing and that will give gold and silver yet another chance this year to rise. I am not advising to aggressively go short despite the current downward momentum.
However in case gold and silver fall throughout the day, then there will be a massive increase in net short positions which will continue to rise till early March. Today’s session is very crucial for bullion.
The Delhi drubbing of the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in delhi state elections can delay the speculated import duty cut on gold and silver. The upcoming budget will be slightly populist. The Modi government had been laying the foundations for a long term growth ever since it came to power last year. However voters in India are just swayed by short term needs and dictats by religious heads and the price has been paid by the BJP. (Please note that I am a national first and then have a bias towards communism).
Wait and wait before going long in bullion. Silver will see another wave of selling only if it trades below $1644 either in the UK session or the US session. We are against going long in silver at current prices. Trade carefully and look for signs of trend reversal.
