COMEX FUTURES REPORT
Short term investment sentiment for gold in India and across Asia is bullish. Retail gold demand in India will rise as the week progresses and into March. In India there is massive speculation that prices in India will rise to Rs.35000/ten grams (current price is around Rs.29500/ten grams) in the next three months. However the direction of gold prices after the release of US February nonfarm payrolls will be interesting. Till the release of the release of US February nonfarm payrolls on 4th March, gold prices could trade in a wider $1180 and $1315 range.
The Euro/usd is on the verge of a technical breakdown. The Usd/Jpy is on the verge of a technical breakout. These contrarian moves against the US dollar will create confusion among investors and will be short term bullish for gold. There are no significant market moving economic data releases from America today. Till the Federal Reserve meeting around the “ides of March” investors will be focused on whether what can or what will change the outlook of interest rates by the Federal Reserve. After the release on US February nonfarm payrolls, even I had said that an interest rate hike will happen either in the June meeting of the Federal Reserve or beyond. I will also be looking for clues as to what can induce the FOMC to have an interest rate hike before June.
Movement of crude oil prices and copper reflects that traders and jobbers are on the fringe and closing open positions quickly.
The reduction in Indian gold imports so far this year is purely cyclical and will pick as the year progresses.
