Asian Metals Market Update: February-6-2018

By: Chintan Karnani, Insignia Consultants

 -- Published: Tuesday, 6 February 2018 | Print  | Disqus 

Gold rose due to safe haven demand on the global stock market plunge. Gold gained despite a strong US dollar. If gold rises today, then there will be short covering. A lot of short term traders are short. One needs to remain on the sidelines in gold and silver. In case of extreme margin money pressure in stock markets, some of the long positions in precious metals and industrial metals could get liquidated.


One thing I know is that bottom fishing never works whenever anything falls.  A week’s fall in global stock markets is an investing opportunity. Short term bearish trend will be there if global stock markets continue to fall into next week (around Valentine day). If you are sitting on cash, keep a close watch on the stocks you want to invest. Proper stock selection is the key. This is the reason why I prefer everyone to invest in physical gold in small percentages. The value of your stock investment can fall fifty percent under a rout. I do not think gold prices will fall fifty percent under any price crashes in the next few years. There may be times when gold investment returns may not cover real inflation. Safe haven asset classes have very low returns with almost zero chances of capital erosion.


If US stock markets fall today also, then last night’s slide could be just the tip of the ice-berg. Buyers and investors will vanish. Margin squeeze could result in more sell off in stock markets. The upcoming twenty-four hours are very crucial for global financial markets. The global economy is fundamentally strong. There is nothing to worry. US, Eurozone, China, India, Japan and most nations have rising growth numbers.


COMEX GOLD APRIL 2018 – current price $1345.60

Bullish over $1339.10 with $1351.10-$1357.70 and $1374.40 as price target.

Bearish below $1329.10 with $1323.90-$1321.10 and $1312.80 as price target.

  • Gold needs to trade over $1339 today to rise to $1357.70 and $1374.40.
  • Sell off will be there if gold falls below $1339.
  • Trade very carefully between the $1329-$1339 zone.
  • Be prepared for a $25 sudden move either side anytime.

·         Usd/inr can rise to 64.6100 and 64.9700 as long as it trades over 64.2500.

NYMEX CRUDE OIL (1ST CONTRACT)  - current price $63.36.

Bullish over $64.30 with $65.80-$66.90 as price target

Bearish below $63.70 with $62.80 and $60.90 as price target

  • If global stock markets continue to fall, then crude oil will fall to $60.20.
  • Crude oil needs to trade over $64.00 to rise.
