COMEX FUTURES REPORT
The interest rate rise by the Federal Reserve was slightly larger than expected. The federal funds rate was raised to 0.25 percent to 0.5 percent. There will be more interest rate hike over the next one year. It will still be difficult to comment on the pace of interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. In my view inflation will be the key. Interest rate will continued to be raised at a moderate pace as long as inflation does not rise. If inflation overshoots the interest rate hikes could be jeopardized.
Just trade in the technical for the rest of the year. Momentum is bearish for gold, silver, copper and crude oil. There are more bearish factors than bullish factors. In the short term, unless big demand comes up, every sharp rise will be met by sellers.
Geopolitical risk has unaffected gold and silver prices. “Escalate” is the only word to describe the situation in Middle East. Saudi Arabia along with Turkey are using the oil money to expand their territories in the Middle East (by attacking Yemen and other nations in the region). Saudi Arabia and Turkey are the promoters of the so called “Islamic State”. Migrants will cause more lawlessness in Europe next year. Migrants in the long term (tem years and over) will convert Europe into another Pakistan. In 2016 geopolitical risk will have a serious decision making impact on the mindset of investors. I expect gold and silver to be positively affected by the geopolitical risk.
Failure of gold to break past $1109 by the second week of January will result in a fall to $975 and $937 first. Failure of silver to break past $1515 by the second week of January will result in a fall to $1276 and $1187 first. Nymex crude oil needs to trade over $31 to avert another big crash.
