Gold and silver are bullish after the FOMC minutes. Fed policy makers signaled they wanted more evidence that recent weakness in economic growth was transitory before removing monetary stimulus further. So basically if May nonfarm payrolls comes in below 150,000 then June’s interest rate hike will not be there. Any indication of interest rate hike postponement will be bullish for US dollar denominated asset class.
We also have the UK election in two weeks time. Technically the euro and cable are bullish against the US dollar. Cable will zoom if there are no surprises in the UK elections. (I expect Ms. May to come back to power even more strongly). Currency market trends will affect metals and not energies.
One needs to trade in the technical. Trading volumes in MCX took a knock down in the month of May. I believe that was due to unofficial betting in the IPL cricket league. Volumes will zoom from June in MCX metals and energies. Higher GST rate (if any) in gold and silver will attract more jewelers to hedge in MCX instead of buying physical (at lower prices). Retail participation in MCX metals and energies trading is way below expectation. I expect greater retail participation once MCX starts options in metals and energies.
