Gold and silver fell yesterday as traders remained on the sidelines. A key reason for gold and silver to fall is that they are not attracting new investors. The current bunch of gold investors are not investing aggressively. Physical buyers are fence sitters. Today gold and silver demand will be very high in Asia. Asian demand should prevent a big correction in prices. Physical premiums in gold and silver should rise today.
The FOMC has indicated of a September interest rate hike. There was nothing new in it. As long as strong labor conditions exist in the USA, interest rates will continue to rise. For any slowdown in interest rate hikes, jobs creation should reach a saturation point.
Economics & Trump trade wars
Industrial metals slumped as most of the global manufacturing numbers fell in July. Corporates are pessimistic on short term manufacturing growth. Trump and his trade war continues as he intends to slap more tariffs on Chinese goods. Chinese retaliation is being awaited. China is taking measures to spruce domestic demand as a first baby step to reduce dependence on US exports.
The USA is targeting China where it hits the most. (a) Tariffs are being imposed on high labor intensive Chinese goods. China can counter this partially by using India and other nations as a dumping ground. (b) High end technology goods are being targeting which China does not have any short term solutions. In this case China does not have any choice but to accept demands by the USA. (c) Agro products retaliation by both nations does not have any effect on their respective economic growth.
Focus is on the bank of England meeting today and the as usual overhyped US July nonfarm payrolls. To me all the drama by Trump and his trade war theme is pre conceived plan for the upcoming US senate elections. Nationalism buys votes. Trump is using war and trade war as means to win over the American voters for the November senate elections. All the destabilizing Trump tweets will disappear after the US senate elections are over.
COMEX SILVER SEPTEMBER 2018 – current price $1543.50

MCX NICKEL AUGUST 2018 – previous day close Rs.915.20
