COMEX FUTURES REPORT
Once again there is speculation that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in April. The higher US jobs number has increased the April probability. Global uncertainty will result in the Federal Reserve to waiting till June meeting for an interest rate hike. Next week’s FOMC statement will be hawkish. There will be a fight between bulls and bears in gold and silver.
The situation in Europe and the Middle East needs a closer look. Saudi Arabia and Qatar are now buying more modernized military hardware than ever before. Turkey’s Erdogen is more of a dictator pursuing his own political agenda and crushing every opposition using the military. There seems to be a cartel among Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. This cartel is supporting the so called Islamic state, flooding Europe with radicalized Islamic refugees, converting Europe into another Middle East and indulging in mass killing. NATO is supplying arms to this cartel as it wants both Assad and Putin to go. These developments are all hyper positive for gold and silver.
Central banks are heavily into currency market trade. Every central bank is using currency moves to accomplish their economic results. Policies followed by central banks are divergent (unlike between 2000 and 2014, where convergence was the word among central banks). The purchasing power of all forms of money is swiftly declining as a result of central bank moves. None of the central bankers are reliable and/or work for the masses. People’s interest in hard assets is beginning to gain confidence. It’s a new start for hard asset class investment (after a lull of three years). However the little difference is one needs to have a balanced portfolio. Excess investment in any asset class will scare us out.
