Weakness in the US dollar after the FOMC minutes resulted in gains for metals and energies. There is optimism that Trump will create new jobs with higher growth rates. If there is any indication of fading of Trump optimism then the US dollar will nosedive, emerging market stocks, metals and energies will zoom.
Gold imports to Turkey jumped to 36.7 tons in December recording a 688 percent after its president Erdogan called for its citizens to convert their foreign exchange into Turkish Lira or gold. The Chinese are buying a lot of gold. There is higher demand for gold all over the Eurozone over fears of Islamic terrorism. Physical gold demand is on the rise. Investment demand in ETFs keeps on fluctuating. Physical gold demand is a long term indicator of gold prices. In the short term and medium term ETF inflows/outflows and other news affect prices.
In India key state elections have been announced. The NDA government is trying to impact voter sentiment by keeping the Union budget on time. All the judicial agencies whether it is the election commission or the Supreme Court have been supportive of the NDA government. The NDA government will give the budget on the dates it wishes. Goa and Uttarakhand are the key states for the BJP. Congress has the best chance to come to power in Punjab. I do not foresee a BJP in power in Uttar Pradesh as ghost of demonetization will affect voters. The Indian rupee so far has been trading in 66-69 range against the US dollar. This range will be broken soon. Domestic factors suggest further weakness. Only global factors can result in gains for the rupee.
The next three days till Monday is very crucial for all metals and energies. If they rise then I expect a ten percent rise over the coming weeks. If they fall, then could move in to a medium term bearish zone.

MCX CRUDE OIL JANUARY 2017 – previous day close Rs.3621
There is a technical congestion between 3555-3588-3621. Crude oil needs to trade over this zone to rise to 3712 and 3774. Today one needs to remain on the sidelines as crude oil rise can move 125-150 anytime. Jobbers watch 3617 all the time.
