This will be a big week for commodity markets and currency markets. (a) US June nonfarm payrolls (b) Greece drama (c) US Independence day vacation. These can reverse the current direction of the markets and/or create another big sell off in gold, silver and copper. In the next two weeks, I am more than confident that a new trend will be there. It has been easing picking for gold, silver and copper traders. Just sell on any rise and make merry. This strategy will not work this week as there will be two way price movements.
Use higher trailing stop losses. Use any five percent fall (if any) to invest for the short term. Unless there are clear signals of a long term trend reversal, trade/invest for the short term in all metals and energies.
Immediately after the release of the US economic data, there will be an assessment on the US interest rate cycle. You might get foxed and make a bad trade. Wait for initial movement to settle down and then make your trade. Momentum traders can play with the momentum using trailing stop losses.
Gold and silver falling does not mean that one cannot make a profit through trading/investing. The only thing one needs to do is reduce greed and slower and lower returns. Most of the people think that bullion traders are irrational. The general view is that bullion should not be in one’s portfolio. Last week some of the large hedge funds have predicted that US jobs growth will stabilize at fifty thousand per month. Right now investors and the Federal Reserve are obsessed with over one hundred and fifty thousand jobs per month. If US jobs growth stabilizes at fifty thousand per month, then forget interest rate hikes and rest in peace, bullion bears. I am optimistic that 2016 will be the year of gold and silver bulls. However right now, extreme caution is needed by gold and silver investors.
The Saudi form of Islam will cripple the global economy. Saudi’s are just like termites eating the world, ably supported by Obama and all NATO leaders. Even the two main contenders in the US presidential race, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton have already sold themselves to the Saudi’s and key Islamic leaders. Whoever becomes the next US president, they will be purchased by the oil money of Saudi’s and terror money of Islamic leaders. Gold in the long term has to rise.
Buy lots land, wait for more falls in gold and silver and invest in physical. This has always been my long term call. This will remain my long term call. Short term to medium term, selected stocks are best. Better investment planning would be to invest at least fifty percent of profits from stock markets in land and bullion. This is applicable for all nations including India.
Gold was not invincible. Stock markets will not be invincible. Only creation of more and more money by almost all central banks seems to be death proof. But to remain death proof, a cost has to be incurred. The cost (in the future), will be central banks running out of pure monetary tools (which they have been using after the second world war) and helpless. Greenspan, Bernanke, Yellen, Merkel, and the global crop of central bank chiefs and global upcoming key politicians have all born, brought up and lived in a world where changes in pure monetary cycle have led to their desired level of economic growth and jobs creation. Our current decision makers do not have any innovative economic decision making ability among themselves. This lack will do more harm to the global economy in the coming years.
