Asian Metals Market Update: U.S. Economic Data In Focus

October 5, 2021

Price of all gold, silver and copper hinges on US economic data releases (other than jobs) and various US September jobs numbers. A slightly better number has already been factored in by the traders. There will be massive short covering rally if US jobs number comes in lower.

Silver will rise. Use crashes in silver to invest. Day traders and weekly traders still have to remain on the sidelines on gold and silver this week. Intraday price moves will be two-way. Physical demand for gold and silver will be on the higher side in Asia. Once again keep a close watch on gold premiums in Singapore. A rising trend in Singapore gold premiums will imply a test of $1810 this week.

In Southern India, gold jewelry demand continues to surprise every week. In Delhi and north India, jewelry demand is expected to rise sharply after 7th October but only if the price does not break $1800. Chinese gold demand unofficial numbers between 1st October and 7th October will also need a close watch.

Crude oil IS rising as nations scramble to increase inventories. Petrol/diesel shortage in UK has caught the world by surprise. China and most nations in the northern hemisphere have started increasing their reserves for winters. Speculators have sharply increased long positions in crude oil as a result. Crude oil will see a big sell-off only if winters are warm and/or US dollar Index gains sharply after nonfarm payrolls.

Rise in all metals (precious metals and base metals) in October is subject to a break of key resistances. The trend of copper and base metals between 8th October and 15th October is also critical. (one week after China opens).

If technical defies hyper bearish sentiment, then gold will be near 48000 and more by Diwali. Right now gold can rise but it needs to float over 47000 in October month to attract new traders.

As long as silver trades over 56000 in the short term chances of 71000 and more is very high. The next big sell-off will be there only if silver trades below 56000. The next two weeks is very crucial for silver bulls.


78 percent of the yearly gold supply--is made into jewelry.
