Gold rose despite some better than expected US December private ADP numbers. The US dollar is still on the weaker side against the euro and sterling. This is the best chance for gold to rise to the $1400-$1430 zone and for silver to test $2000. FOMC minutes preventing a gold price fall is very positive for bullion in the near term. Investors know that the chances of a quicker interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve are high. Still gold rising is a very positive sign. I expect short gold positions to be converted into long positions if it rises today.
Physical demand for gold and silver in India is not big at the moment. The Indian Hindu marriage season starts early this year and has an early summer close due to the extra inauspicious “Maal Maas” in May. Marriages will be early. Indian gold jewelry demand will be on the higher side and early this summer. I expect Indians to use the current prices and further prices to buy more gold and gold jewelry. There were no major natural calamities in India last year. This will result in higher rural demand for gold due to the rise in income of farmers. There is a direct correlation between Indian stock prices and Indian gold demand. Indian stock markets are still near a historical high.
Copper and industrial metals can move ten percent either side anytime. Either they break key resistances or else there will see a sharp correction. I will prefer to remain on the sidelines in industrial metals at current prices.
