Yuan and Gold
In the previous editions of the Market Overview, we have already analyzed the relationship between gold and some major world currencies, such as the U.S. dollar, the euro, or the Japanese yen. But what is the link between the Chinese yuan (officially: renminbi) and the yellow metal? Let’s check it out. Chart 1: The USD/CNY exchange rate (red line, right axis) and the price of gold (yellow line, left axis, London P.M. Fix) from January 1981 to September 2017. As one can see in the chart above,

New study backs gold as an effective hedge
The case for adding gold to your investment portfolio has won a powerful new advocate. Cameron Crise, Bloomberg’s Macro Man and self-confessed gold sceptic, recently undertook a “Mythbusters-style approach” to ­discovering whether gold is an effective hedge in times of risk. His investigation tests the argument that a small stash of gold can balance out losses in other assets during market turmoil and political crisis. Previous analysis in this area supports the notion that over time, gold holds

Catalan Declaration of Independence and Gold
Yesterday, Catalan leaders signed a declaration of independence. What does it mean for the gold market? So it really happened. On Tuesday, the Catalan President, Carles Puigdemont, signed a document declaring Catalonia’s independence from Spain. He also delivered a speech in the regional parliament saying that the recent referendum gave his government the mandate to create a sovereign state: “I assume the mandate that Catalonia should become an independent state in the form of a republic.” (By t

Gold's Technical Line Of Concern
The traditional post jobs report rally for gold is in full swing. This is the daily gold chart. Gold arrived at a key Fibonacci line at about $1268 as the US jobs report was released. The dollar has stalled against the yen, and that’s also good news for gold. Gold tends to stage great rallies in the days following the jobs report, and this rally is a particularly interesting one. Here’s why: First, Trump has ratcheted up his “hawk talk” in regards to North Korea and Iran. He’s scheduled to

Silver + Gold Jump as China Returns from Holidays, N.Korea + Catalonia Tensions 'Support' After Comex Bulls Retreat

Digging Up An Old Story
Last night instead of watching the No Fans Left political program, I decided to watch a 1931 movie starring Bela Lugosi. Being in the Halloween Season and all, I watched the original “Dracula” where the main character was charismatic, kind, considerate, wealthy, and a little off. This movie was epic and the digitally remastered film really showed the viewers a good time. Bela Lugosi was claimed to have stayed in character for 6 months past the making of the movie and I found out later that he wa

Stocks Up and Yields Down, Gold and Silver Report 8 Oct 2017
Many gold bugs make an implicit assumption. Gold is good, therefore it will go up. This is tempting but wrong (ignoring that gold does not go anywhere, it’s the dollar that goes down). One error is in thinking that now you have discovered a truth, everyone else will see it quickly. And there is a subtler error. The error is to think good things must go up. Sometimes they do, but why? First, we think it’s a cop-out to say, “well it’s all subjective.” If it were all subjective, then there would be

  Betrayal!
Let me apologize in advance for what may be an upsetting piece of writing for some of you. If you're in a state of shock or exhaustion from recent events, perhaps you should skip this one. I don't offer this analysis in order to further distress anyone -- but until you understand what is happening and how that influences your psychological state, you'll remain the emotional equivalent of a rag doll shaken to-and-fro by events. Such understanding may not bring you to a place of calm acceptance. B

Gold Price Sinks, Platinum -11 in 4 Weeks as Stocks Up, Vix Down to Record, US Fed 'Pencils In' Rate Hike
GOLD PRICES sank to 8-week lows against a rising Dollar on Friday as yesterday's fresh all-time highs in global equities were followed by US data showing joblessness in the world's largest economy falling to a fresh 16-year low. "I have penciled in a third rate hike in December," said Federal Reserve voting member Patrick Harker to CNBC on Thursday, "[although] we have to see how the inflation dynamics play out."

The upcoming increase in interest rates
Last week, both Janet Yellen of the Fed and Mark Carney of the Bank of England prepared financial markets for interest rate increases. The working assumption should be that this was coordinated, and that both the ECB and the Bank of Japan must be considering similar moves.Central banks coordinate their monetary policies as much as possible, which is why we can take the view we are about to embark on a new policy phase of higher interest rates. The intention of this new phase must be to normalise

Will North Korea Boost Gold Prices? Part II
The turn of 2012 to 2013 was a time of escalated tensions between North Korean and the U.S, comparable to recent strains. Hence, the analysis of that period should be valuable for gold investors curious whether (and how) the latest crisis on Korean Peninsula would affect the precious metals market. On December 12, 2012, North Korea successfully launched a long-range rocket, testing a banned ballistic missile and raising nuclear stakes. In response, the U.N. Security Council approved the broadeni
