The US Dollar rally, combined with the ECB’s policies are at risk of blowing up a $9 trillion carry trade. When the Fed cut interest rates to zero in 2008, it flooded the system with US Dollars. The US Dollar is the reserve currency of the world. NO matter what country...
Whether or not the Swiss National Bank was the "first domino to fall" remains to be seen. With central banks in Denmark, Turkey, India, Peru, and Canada all lowering rates and China pumping $8 billion into its banking system via a reverse repo operation, it's clear...
The recent rise in the gold price, now standing at just below the $1300 mark, does not yet appear to have put a dent in Chinese gold demand as represented by withdrawals from the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE). Indeed it appears to be picking up even further in the...
SPX found enough resistance at its previous short-term high of 2064 to put a halt to the strong rally which started at 1988. Friday’s retracement does not look complete and it’s now a question of whether the bears will be able to muster enough strength to regain the...
Equities past their peak? Bond market dead? So where do investors go looking for returns? Eric Coffin suggests gold, both bullion and stocks. In this interview with The Gold Report, the publisher of Hard Rock Analyst explains how changes in the currency and energy...
As was widely expected, the European Central Bank has started a program of Quantitative Easing, something which the ECB vowed it would never even consider when the supranational institution was created. Situations can change and less than 10 years after its...
Many interesting things are happening in the markets as we move into 2015. On Thursday this week the ECB announced an eighteen month, 1.1 trillion euro QE program. I had a good chuckle over this as I remembered how Europe’s central bankers introduced the euro as a...
Yesterday the European Central Bank (ECB) announced an expanded 1.1 trillion euro (US$1.3 trillion) asset purchase program to start in March 2015 and continue through September 2016 (19 months) that will include the purchases of sovereign (national government) debt. It...
The new year has ushered in a remarkable and unexpected turn of events for gold. It is up significantly in four of the seven top currencies (the euro, British pound, Australian and Canadian dollars), up respectably in two others (U.S. dollar and Japanese yen) and down...
An absolutely massive week for leading stocks. I’ve talked recently about the ability to keep it small during the tough times…and go heavy during the good times. And things turned good this past week.
Long term – on major sell signal since Mar 2012 when $HUI was at 550. Short term – on buy signals. Gold sector cycle – up as of 11/14. A bear market rally is in progress but upside should be limited. COT data suggests lower metal prices overall going forward.
It’s 2:30 AM MST Friday morning, on my “day off.” However, I couldn’t sleep because too much is going through my head – as I digest the second “financial big bang” in just a week’s time. Many more are coming this year – perhaps as early as Monday, following Sunday’s...
Despite arriving late to Thursday’s press conference - ironically, held up by the new ECB elevator system that just wouldn’t cooperate… Draghi delivered the goods. The ECB would buy over 1 trillion euros through September 2016 - or until there is a “sustained...
The Swiss National Bank (SNB) shocked the currency markets when it abandoned the three year currency peg to the euro. Switzerland spent billions of francs to cheapen the franc, loading up its balance sheet which doubled to over CHF1 billion equivalent to 86 percent of...
In recent days and weeks we noted key levels for Gold at $1250 as well as $1270-$1280. Over the past two weeks Gold easily cleared $1250 and continued to $1300. Today it is trading around $1290 and will close above its 80-week moving average for the second consecutive...
Germany’s Bundesbank has just made great play of the fact that it managed to repatriate some 85 tonnes of gold from New York in 2014 and 35 tonnes from Paris. Technically, as the Bundesbank points out this is very much on schedule with its promise to bring back into...
The annual LBMA precious metals price competition’s top gold forecaster over the years, Sharps Pixley’s Ross Norman, is bucking the mainstream analyst consensus with a $1321 average gold price forecast for 2015. Silver $18.56, Platinum $1268, Palladium $876. Slightly...
