COMEX FUTURES REPORT
At the beginning of the year, the internet media was filled with hyper bearish views on gold. Sell gold was the universal voice, Short sellers of gold where there everywhere. As gold started to rise, these short positions started getting converted into long positions. Movement in currency market, global uncertainty and US interest rate expectations have been the key drivers for gold so far in the first quarter of this year. The period between 15th March and end June will the real big test for gold bulls. Either the stratosphere or Marina’s trench (lowest point on earth).
All important FOMC meet is there this week. Traders have already factored in a no rate hike this meeting or next meeting. A hawkish view that interest rate hike will be dependent on progress of US economy and stabilization of global economic risk will result in a technical trade and also a mildly bullish trajectory. For gold to crash this week (a) $1310 is not breached this week (b) Fed directly says that a June or before interest rate hike will be there.
After the FOMC, traders and all alike will take positions for next quarter. The next quarter is very crucial for gold and silver. If they are able to rise or trade firm in April to June quarter then both of them will zoom in the second half of the year. On the contrary if gold and silver show signs of fatigue in April to June quarter, the short sellers will once again have the upper hand. Even now there are some hedge funds who are looking for clues to sell gold and silver for the next quarter.
I believe that copper and all the industrial metals and energies have formed a long term bottom this quarter. The only direction is to rise. Corrections will not result in a fall below this years low.
Remain on the sidelines. Do not be an emotional fool. Stay calm and do not get caught in the global investor dilemma of stock versus safe havens such as gold.
Investors have the tendency to take massive risk before festivals. They incur losses on trades before festivals and have a sulking face. The colorful festival of Holi is very near. Please do not incur trading losses. If you are not confident, do not trade. Trading opportunities will also be there after holi, enjoyment time will not come again.
Most of us (including myself) work on a fourteen hour a day schedule. Weekends are there to catch up with sleep and also spend time with family. In this husle and busle of daily lives we forget our own self and friends. Holi is the time to catch up with our friends and also rediscover our true self. Just remember trading later, holi and festive enjoyment first.
(I am seeing a lot of traders unable to cope with current intraday volatility of gold. They have incurred good losses. They made the losses because they just followed the momentum and ended up buying at highest prices and selling at lowest prices. The emphasis of today’s report is to remind our highly experienced clients to stick to the basic parameters of intraday trading. Take a break if you are unable to trade in current volatility.)
