This week is the FOMC meet. This year gold and silver have been distracted by expectations of an interest rate hike (by the Federal Reserve) between June and December. Every now and then some idiotic member of the FOMC keeps on giving some different views as to when there will be an interest rate hike. An interest rate hike will be there this year. There are no second thoughts over the same. But timing and pace of rise will be the key for gold, silver, metals and emerging market currencies apart from the US dollar. Gold and silver have not risen as most of investors are of the belief that there will be a zip-zap-zoom kind of interest rate hike (if and when the interest rate hike starts to happen). I expect gold and silver to soon delink from US interest rate expectations before the end of June.
Gold and silver are about of witness one of the biggest changes in the demand cycle. Retail European demand should start to rise now and zoom in the next few years. Some of the European central banks will become net buyers (from net sellers) from next year. The Chinese as usual continue to be the largest accumulators of gold. Indian gold imports could fall as the government tries to monetize household gold. Europe is going through a demographic change. The rise in radical Islam is on the verge of changing the very foundation in which Europe has been established for centuries. Europe will soon have more mosques than churches. More mosques will imply more demand for physical gold among Europeans as compliance towards Sharia.
There is no silver monetization scheme in India. I expect Indian silver demand to continue to rise in India this year and for the rest of the decade. Ever rising Indian silver demand (apart from industrial use) will be the next catalyst to restart a silver price rise.
In the next three weeks in case gold is able to trade over $1120 the chances of a rise to $1324 will be the very high. In the next three weeks, in case spot silver is able to trade over $13.75, the chances of a rise to $1710 and $1930 will be high. There will be very big one way moves in the next three weeks. Forget consolidation. Range traders will get crushed. A bad trade on the wrong side will ensure that you are busted. I am not asking you to be a bull or a bear. I am just asking you to judge the trend and make your day cheerful (instead of sorrowful).
This is a good time to trade in commodities. Even small phases of high volatility will ensure decent profit. Those who are not trading in commodities should now enter. Crude oil is at an infection point as there will be a $15 one way move anytime. This is the best chance for crude oil to rise this year. I am positive. Buy far dated gold and silver call options. Instead of buying a lottery ticket buy a gold and silver call option after November 2016.

- View till end May: Crude oil can rise to $61.50 and $72.10 as long as it trades over $51.20. Sellers will be there if (a) crude oil does not break $61.50 till the end of may or (b) crude oil has a daily close below $53.70 for four consecutive days.
- This week crude oil needs to break and trade over 58.90 for another set of rise.
