US economic data releases suggest continued interest rate hikes till the first quarter of next year. Traders are factoring in a minimum two interest rate hikes in the next six months (may be even more depending on inflation). Federal Chairman Powell has said that interest rates in the USA may be raised by above “neutral”. Next year gold will be free from the interest rate hikes correlation. Gold investment returns in emerging markets is positive. (a) The continued fall in currency values and (b) stock markets falling more than pullback rallies are helping gold prices to rise. Gold is a good investment and a safe investment even as prices in US dollar terms are falling. Gold demand in Asia will rise more and more on price falls. Asians will shift investment from bonds and stocks to gold.
The US dollar Index is at a critical juncture. It is trading at 95.72. The two hundred week moving average is at 95.67. If the US dollar Index manages to trade over the 200 week MA till Tuesday, then chances of breaking past 100 will be very high.
Zinc zoomed yesterday and has broken all key resistances. Nickel may have formed a medium term bottom in September. The widening of the zinc-lead spread suggests that the industrial metals rise is here to stay. Aluminum if it rises for another week will rise fifteen percent in the short term. Trading volumes are very thin in industrial metals as Chinese markets are closed this week. In case Chinese do not buy for a few days (after they open), then sudden crash will be there in all industrial metals.
