The demand trend from China of gold and silver due to the Chinese New Year is very important for the short term. Indian gold and silver demand are expected to rise as the year progresses. In my view from 2016, Indian and Chinese demand for bullion will zoom. This will change the fundamentals and ensure that short positions get converted into long positions.
In other words 2016 should the reverse of 2014. The Federal Reserve will start and stop to raise interest rates by the middle of June 2016. After June 2016, I expect a very long pause in US interest rate hikes which could support bullion investment. The Federal Reserve can raise interest rates between one percent to one and a half percent in the next sixteen months. Thereafter a long pause will be there and the next US president (after Barack Obama) will call the shots on interest rates.
Norway is worried that some of its citizens are at key posts in the Islamic state army. Europeans control most of the Islamic state key army positions while Asians and Africans do the rest. The world is still taking the Islamic state lightly. There are only serious words to soothe the people which is followed by absolute almost inaction. In order to divert the attention of masses from the Islamic state, Ukraine and Greece issues have been created. I have never heard the USA taking serious action against Boko Horom in Africa as they continue with their daily human scavenging activity. I see only fear for the masses in every part of the world. This global fear should be the cause of the next parabolic rise in gold and silver. Oh yes, central banks are net buyers in gold.
The plunge protection team (PPT) constituted by every nation to ensure that stock markets do not crash will someday reach a bubble zone. Manipulation of currencies by central banks for economic growth and/or political motives is at its decade peak. This should also reach a point of no return by next year which is when bullion will start its massive rise. However, I still say for this year, one needs to be patient.
Globally, there is a huge political change. In India we have the “Aam Aadmi Party” (AAP) which is the result of traditional political parties looting the people since Independence. The National democratic alliance (NDA) hype is over. In Delhi, people are dissatisfied over issues such as Uber taxi rape issues, inability to bring down prices of food and other surviving essentials, roads being dug up for new infrastructure but not being completed among other key issues affecting the daily lives of people. There will be more Indian style “Aam Aadmi Party” in every part of the world over the coming years. This will ensure the death of some of the historical political parties. Global political churning should be bullish for bullion and other safe havens.
