COMEX FUTURES REPORT
I will be worried only if gold and silver continue to fall after September’s FOMC meet. The current fall is just a part of summer trading which is backed by lack of demand and a complete breakdown in the technicals. To me one should use gold and silver price falls till September’s FOMC meet to invest for the short term as well as the long term. The quicker the fall, the chances of an equal quick recovery will be high.
When gold prices were trading in the $330-$460 range between the 2001-2004 period, prices had always crashed between the middle of June till the September FOMC meet and thereafter a slow and steady rise after September onwards. I expect this trend to continue this year also. The current gold price phase is just like the 2001-2004 phase. Another similarity was that Asian economies were on the verge of big economic growth. China and other big Asian nations should form a long term growth bottom by the first quarter of 2016 and growth rates thereafter should rise.
No one wants to invest in gold. Gold for now is an untouchable amongst the investment community. Whenever any investment falls excessively and starts to produce negative returns, retail investors do no invest easily. Finding the confidence of retail investment for that investment class is like a snail trying to climb a mountain. Gold, silver and other metals are going through such a phase. Gold bulls need to bear it out for another eleven months.
The Federal Reserve will ensure that gold and silver continue to fall till the first interest rate hike. My experience is that commodity price direction is dependent on Asian demand. Commodities are priced in US dollars. When Asian demand for commodities rise, commodity prices will start another bull phase. The US government controlled hedge funds like Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan etc have the dubious track record of jerking prices of everything which is in big demand in Asia.
Investors are gung ho that the Federal Reserve will start raising interest rates. I do not think Yellen will do a Volcker on US interest rates. The next big mover will be the pace of US interest rates hikes and not the actual hike. The Federal Reserve under Yellen will be extra cautious in raising interest rates. A half a percent interest rate hike in the next three months to four months anytime after September and thereafter a long pause, is expected by me. This long pause in interest rates will itself ensure that gold forms a long term bottom this year.
