COMEX FUTURES REPORT
The big guess answer for everyone is when an interest rate hike will be there by the Federal Reserve. FOMC minutes are positive that inflation will rise which should result in an interest rate hike. US economic data releases shows sustained strength.
By next week either gold breaks and trades over $1174 or it will fall to $1108 and $1086 first and then rise. Asian demand for gold and silver will rise with the passing of every week. Premiums on physical gold and silver will rise with the passing of each week.
Indian gold imports
Indian gold imports in the first eight months of the calendar year are estimated to be 40% higher at 587 tonnes year-on-year. 2015 is likely to close with over 1000 tonnes imports. The import bill for the first 8 months is estimated at $23 billion, up 42% year on year. Imports in the month of August are estimated between 85-100 tonne compared to 67 tonne in August, 2014, a rise of around 50%. In July this year, imports were 97 tonne. If the final figure for August comes near to 100 tones as estimated, it will be perhaps the highest August import. In August 2011 the import was 91.8 tones.
Our view: (A) Indian gold imports should prevent gold prices from a big fall till November. From December 2015 to February 2016, Indian gold imports should fall. It is this period’s price trend which will be crucial for next year. (B) Chinese demand for gold will be crucial from the middle of January 2016 to the middle of March 2016 due to the Chinese New Year. If Chinese gold demand beats street expectations, then gold will rise to $1430-$1500 by May 2016.
I am not hyper bullish in gold in the short term. Buyers hold on to long positions with a stop loss below $1088. Fresh buying only if gold trades over $1150 after the release of tomorrow’s US August nonfarm payrolls with a stop loss below $1107.

- For the rest of the month, I am against selling crude oil unless it falls below $42.00.

- A daily close over $44.00 today and tomorrow should result in $53.00-$55.00 in the next two weeks.
