U.S. Labels China “Currency Manipulator,” Gold Soars

Posted by Metals Corporate on

By John McDonald In the wake of breaking news that the United States had formally labeled China a “currency manipulator” and China had retaliated by dropping the price of its currency to a near-historic low, gold prices skyrocketed the night of August 5, 2019.  Even after the upward momentum stabilized the next morning, gold bulls gleefully noted the yellow metal had hit another six-year high overnight. With Asian and European markets volatile and the U.S. stock indexes positioned to open higher the next morning, gold buyers had eased up on activity somewhat as the trading day began.  However, gold and...

As Dollar Weakens, Get Ready for Strong Gold

Posted by Metals Corporate on

By John McDonald Despite lower unemployment rates than the United States has seen in the past half-century and strong market performance for nearly a decade, the Federal Reserve recently opted to trim interest rates for the first time since the global financial meltdown of 2008. Jerome Powell, Fed chairman, cited stalled manufacturing growth and anticipation of a “world economic slowdown” as reasons for the cut. While the rate-cutting has a number of analysts in a tizzy, gold investors should be watching the Fed’s move with excitement.  It is likely just the catalyst gold needs to outperform the market and replicate...

Posted by Metals Corporate on

By John McDonald After three months of indisputable gains and multiple six-year highs, some investors previously proudly bearish on gold are changing their stance on the yellow metal.  In fact, two prominent traders say it doesn’t matter what anyone does at the Fed or on Wall Street; gold will surge regardless at some point in the coming year. They expect that to happen sooner rather than later. “I look at gold as higher in both scenarios,” said Anthony Grisanti, founder and president of GRZ Energy, the day before the Fed cut interest rates by a quarter of a point.  Although...

The Mysterious “Whale” Buying Up Silver

Posted by Metals Corporate on

By John McDonald Silver investors have spent much of the summer disappointed thanks to what they consider “underperformance” in light of gold’s recent rally and general bullish trend. Silver is generally more volatile than gold, rising higher than the precious yellow metal when gold is on a rally and falling farther and faster when values retreat. However, silver is not “behaving” as it should this time around. In fact, while gold has steadily risen by about 11 percent since last December, silver has actually fallen slightly. Conventional wisdom would have expected a 20 percent silver rally with gold up by...

Gold Bulls “Back in Control” as Values Near 6-Year Highs

Posted by Metals Corporate on

By John McDonald As more precious-metals speculators buy up increasingly large amounts of gold, a rally that could take the metal higher than it has been since August 2013 gains steam. Gold values have hovered around $1,400 for several days, but with the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate cut coming in smaller than the markets and investors had hoped and economists warning the Fed is destroying its own credibility along with that of the U.S. dollar, gold is likely to sustain its rise for the duration of 2019, if not longer. As Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at Oanda Corp., said...
