ASIAN METALS MARKET UPDATE
North Korean’s moving away from peace talks after hints of regime change moves by the Americans should limit the fall in gold and silver today. Long term investors will also be using the fall in gold and silver to start investing. American are known to press for regime change. North Koreans are rightly cautious. Our view: I never expected Americans to go for peace talks in Korean peninsula. Selling arms and regime change is their business. Leaders come and go in USA but there is policy continuity in the form of forced regime change and prevent peace in the region so that American arms industry flourish. Gold will ultimately benefit in the long term. Those who are writing off gold will eat their words soon. Interest rates cannot rise endless. Next year the pace of global interest rate hike will be very slow in key nations.
Bullying and Protectionism is something Trump is using to nations to sing to his tune. Coercion with nations will work for a year or two. Thereafter nations getting coerced will find ways and means to get over the same. US dollar will be the sole looser. Trump bulling of European nations is the nail in the coffin for the US dollar. European people are getting increasingly frustrated by USA writing their nations policies. They are taking measures to reduce dependence on USA for growth and supply of key technology. This is just a transition phase for European nations. Gold and crypto currencies has to rise as a result of the same.
Yesterday’s fall in gold and silver is line with fundamentals. So far there was zero demand whether physical or ETF or investment. I always believe that fundamentals are the key. These days most of the traders are either momentum traders or technical traders. Fundamental traders and investors are a rare breed.
COMEX SILVER JULY 2018 – current price $1626.00
Bullish over $1620.70 with $1648.70 and $1674.50 as price target
Bearish below $1603.90 with $1587.10 and $1532.70 as price target
Neutral Zone between: $1603.90-$1620.70
- Silver is bearish as long as it trades below 100 day moving average of $1658.60.
- Hundred percent retracement is at $1603. Silver needs to trade over $1603 for the rest of the month to prevent a sell off.
- Silver needs to trade over $1648 to change the trend to bullish.
MCX NICKEL MAY – previous day close Rs.985.40
- Nickel needs to trade over 984.30 today to rise to 1021.20 and 1068.80.
- Yesterday’s rise in Nickel was mainly due to a sharp weakness in the Indian rupee. If the rupee reverses trend today, then there can be a small sell off.
- Support is at 973.90. Intraday bearish trend will be there below 973.90 to 945.20 and below.
