The next two weeks, the following events will affect commodities and currency markets in a big way:
1) FOMC meet
2) US July nonfarm payrolls.
3) The direction of the US dollar.
4) Direction of energy prices.
5) Asian demand for gold and silver.
Each of the above events will affect gold, silver, copper and currency markets in a big way. The next six weeks is the last week of US summer trading and European summer trading period. The next four weeks is also a period when jewelers in Asia will stock up physical gold and silver for the forthcoming demand.
Gold, silver and copper are oversold. They can rise anytime. At lower prices gold prices will see another wave of sell off only if it trades below $1027. At lower prices silver prices will see another wave of sell off only if it trades below $1397. There can be sharp pullback rallies (while maintaining the overall bearish trend) as long as gold and silver trade over these prices.
Another positive side, from the currency markets is if that the Japanese Yen has not yet broken 126.50 against the US dollar. The Japanese Yen can fall to 117 and below as long as it trades below 126.50. A stronger Yen against the US dollar is always positive for gold and silver. September yen repatriations should also result in higher gold and silver prices.
Everyone in India, is now looking for a trend reversal to buy physical gold and silver. In case gold and silver rise this week, then there will be a huge surge in demand this week. Premiums on physical gold and silver will zoom in India, if prices stabilize and/or rise this week.
A Federal Reserve interest rate hike in September and December has already been factored in by the markets. The key is now the pace of interest rate hike till the first quarter of next quarter and not the hike.
Comex gold August futures are expiring this week. There should be profit booking on short positions. As long as Indian gold prices trade over Rs.23700 per ten grams, downside risk will be limited.
COMEX TECHNICAL VIEW
COMEX GOLD AUGUST 2015 – current price $1097.20
Bullish over $1073.10 with $1114.00 and $1131.00 as price target
Bearish below $1056.00 with $1044.10 and $1027.30 as price target
Neutral Zone between $1056.00-1073.10
Jobbers aggressive buy over: Buy on any $15-$20 dip (if any) with a stop loss below $1159 – If the stop loss of $1159 is hit then sell for $1144 an $1119 OR Buy gold over $1104 stop loss $1096 for $1114 and $1131
Jobbers aggressive sell below: Selling only if gold trades below $1069 today.
- The first phase of a correction in gold is over. The next wave of fall will be there only below $1044.
- The region between $1044 and $1073 is an anything can happen zone.
- We prefer a buy on sharp dips strategy with a stop loss below $1030 till next week.
