The Italian election will have an impact on the euro and will also affect decision making among Eurozone members. Merkel gets a fourth term in Germany. I do not foresee a sustainable government in Germany. Merkel’s pro migrant chant will reduce if she needs to stay in power. Even new Italian leaders will support the need to take in less migrants. Less migrants implies less chaos and lawlessness in the Eurozone although the damage has been done. Eurozone developments will not have a significant impact on gold prices. Only the European central bank meeting on Thursday will have an impact if there is confirmation over the time frame of liquidity reduction measures.
Any significant reversal by Trump on additional taxes on steel and aluminum will be bullish for the US dollar and bearish for gold and silver. News will be the key going forward. Nonfarm payrolls will tell us whether there will be an interest rate hike this month or not. I do not foresee an interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve this month. The Trump administration is unpredictable. Better to react after the news than act before.
Gold is only supported by protectionism related news. Gold would have crashed but for protectionism. Physical buyers will be on the sidelines. Once again gold has to break and trade over $1380 by 21st March to zoom. In case gold does not break $1380 by 21st March, then it will trade in wider $1272-$1332-$1380 range.
Right now the fall in zinc, lead and copper is just a correction and an investment opportunity. If they fall this week too, then they will move into a short term bearish phase. I will prefer to use sharp correction in nickel (if any) to invest for the long term.
