Factors which can affect markets                                       


Trump’s trumpet is over now. Trump is different from the previous American presidents as he tries to lure more and more companies to create jobs. He being a billionaire is trying to rectify America’s balance sheet. But the American politicians are trying their best to start an impeachment proceeding against him as they do not like change. May be they do not like the change in power. Every kind of proposed legislation has been blocked. This has been the American political scenario. The reverse has been the American growth story which has been showing signs of sustainment. The European political scene is getting the stabilization doze after the French election and UK elections. UK elections have failed to create any volatility. German elections in my view will be rigged in favor of Merkel. Options market bets are showing a bullish trend for the euro against the US dollar for the rest of the year. Turkey alienating itself from NATO is just a tip of the iceberg. In the future I see NATO being replaced by group of Islamic nations who are currently funding wahabisim. In the end, all the political developments so far in 2017 makes me believe that the common man should not write off gold and silver as a long term investment destination.


The next two weeks are big weeks for all metals and energies. Incoming US economic data releases will give us a clue over the pace of interest rate hikes for the rest of the day. Concerns are there over the continued rise in American stock markets. There is also some section of traders who are increasing bearish bets on the US dollar for the rest of the year. So far Trump has not done anything to increase jobs. Foxconn, Infosys etc have all announced job creation but actuals will take a lot of time. If jobs creation is the sole criteria for interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve then interest rates will rise at a much quicker pace next year than in the next six months.


Over the past few years gold and silver have changed direction a week after “Eid”. If this trend continues then gold and silver may form a short term bottom this week and rise next week. Technically gold needs to trade over $1227 on a daily closing basis to continue its short term bullish trend. Spot silver technicals say that it needs to trade over $16.06 in July to September quarter to continue its bullish journey. After 2008, there has not been a big hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico to ensure zooming of crude oil prices. The first hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico is over the verge of arrival. Hurricane news will ensure crude oil prices limiting their slide.
