The Daily Market Report: Gold Consolidates Ahead of Tax Plan Reveal, Meeting on North Korea
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-26-17 Gold has stabilized after falling in the wake of the French election outcome. Additional weight was supplied by the U.S. tax reform proposal, which includes a 15% corporate tax rate. Stocks love the idea, which put safe-haven assets on the defensive. The White House is touting the tax plan as the “biggest tax cut and largest tax reform” in U.S. history. Whether President Trump can get such an ambitious plan through Congress remains to be seen.

Morning Snapshot: Gold consolidates recent losses
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-26-17 Gold is consolidating at the low end of this week’s range as French election relief and the proposed U.S. corporate tax cut continues to foster a risk-on environment. Geopolitical risks and a weaker dollar are seen as limiting the downside. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, speaking in CNBC this morning, confirmed that the Trump administration would seek a 15% corporate tax rate. Mnuchin claimed the plan would be “the biggest tax cut and the largest tax reform in the histo

Gold eases in French election afterglow; N.Korea woes limit losses
Reuters/Swati Verma/04-25-17 Gold prices eased on Tuesday as investor sentiment remained skewed towards riskier assets in the wake of the French election results last weekend, though concerns over Korean peninsula limited the safe-haven’s losses. …”People are going on the risk-on scenario (after French election results), but gold didn’t really fall too far away,” said Yuichi Ikemizu, head of commodity trading at Standard Bank in Tokyo. “There are more people who are still worried about not only

Daily Market Report: Gold Remains Defensive as Risk Appetite is Stoked
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/04-25-17 Gold extended modestly lower, exceeding yesterday’s low at 1265.12 as risk assets continue to benefit from the French election results and the prospect of much lower U.S. corporate taxes. The weaker dollar and geopolitical risks continue to offer some support. “Between the France election and the prospects of corporate tax cuts being proposed in the next few days, it’s clearly a risk-on backdrop.” — Thierry Albert Wizman, global interest rates and currencies strategi

Investors will be watching the polls closely in the weeks ahead to see if Le Pen can narrow the differential. Weakness in the dollar that is associated with the rebound in the euro will help to limit the downside in gold. Elevated geopolitical tensions provide an underpinning

LePen Euro Frexit Panic Over – “For Now”
by John Stepek, Editor of Money Week OK, drama’s over. The French election has turned out pretty much exactly as expected. For all that some of the papers are leading with “French revolution” headlines, the reality is that a face-off between the right-wing Marine Le Pen of the Front National and independent/socialist candidate Emmanuel Macron of En Marche! has been on the cards for months now.

However, the yellow metal is already more than $10 off the intraday low, buoyed by persistent geopolitical risks and a weaker dollar. The outcome of the French election was pretty much as expected, with Macron and Le Pen advancing to the May 7 run-off.

If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe, Part V-Rigging Versus Reality
It’s early Monday, and let’s start by clearing our heads of the ramifications of yesterday’s first round of the French Presidential election process – in which, as expected, 39-year Emmanuel Macron, a former Rothschild Bank investment banker whose only political experience was miserably failing as “Economy Minister” under outgoing President Francois Hollande (whose approval rating was so low – principally because the French economy has collapsed – he didn’t run for re-election); running under a

Ready, Set, Splat.
As I write, the French stock market (the CAC 40), is doing a grand jeté (up 4.5 percent!) in celebration of Emmanuel Macron’s assumed slaying of the dragon Le Pen. But that was just the first round under the interesting French election system. Consider that two other candidates who were eliminated, Monsieurs Fillon and Mélenchon, got nearly 40 percent of the vote. Are we so sure about where their voters go in the second and final round two weeks from now? I suspect that most Americans — even the

To Frexit or Not to Frexit, Report 23 April, 2017
This was also a holiday-shorted week. As we write this, the big news comes from the election in France. The leading candidate is a banker named Emmanuel Macron, with about 24% of the vote in a 4-candidate race. The anti-euro Marine Le Pen came in second with just over 21%. From the sharp rally in the euro, which was up about 2% at one point, we assume that observers believe the odds of France leaving the euro have just gone down. Of course, France (and the other European countries) faces a false
