Gold and silver fell below the key long term moving averages and key retracement levels after the Federal Reserve chairman’s semi-annual testimony. The Indian gold future price fell below Rs.30,000 after more than a year. There should be very good physical demand in Asia for gold. I am not very sure of higher silver demand in Asia. Gold premiums will rise. I am not writing off gold as an investment. I continue to believe that one should use the July and August fall in gold prices to invest in physical gold for the long term. I have never believed in gold ETFs as a way to invest and do not intend to change my views.
EU strikes free trade deal with Japan amid rising US protectionism
The deal is set to eliminate 99 percent of export levies on Japanese goods coming to the bloc with tariffs on European imports to Japan expected to remain at around 94 percent. The difference is due to temporary exemptions for culturally and politically sensitive products such as rice.
The deal will bring down the prices for European wine, pork and cheeses for Japanese consumers, while made-in-Japan machinery parts, tea and fish will become cheaper for Europeans.
Our View: The purchasing power of the US dollar is on the decline. The only alternate is gold.
Federal Reserve Chairman’s semi-annual testimony
· Backs continued gradual interest rate hikes
· Policy challenge to keep inflation close to 2%
· “Best Path” is gradual interest rate hikes
Our view: The US dollar can gain and gold and other metals can fall further. The US dollar gaining trend can continue till the September FOMC meet. I expect a gradual US dollar decline after September’s FOMC meet. The US dollar will decline only when the US economy shows forming a growth top and/or Eurozone or UK economic growth shows a long term bottom formation. Trade war uncertainties and its impact are unknown. In the short term the greenback can gain. In the long-term gold gains.
The testimony will continue today also. But key questions have been answered on the trend of US interest rates and the US economy. I do not think today’s part will have any significant impact on the trend of the US dollar or gold and silver.
Economics & Trump trade wars
Incoming US economic data releases will be scrutinized for slowdown. Traders will be on the lookout for trade war related news or bilateral trade agreements between nations.
