2nd February: Asian Metals Market Update

ASIAN METALS MARKET UPDATE
Gold rose on the back of rising bond yields and negative news on crypto currency news. After today’s US January nonfarm payrolls it will be a technical trade with Chinese demand and bond yields as the key. Today and Monday are big days for gold and silver. I expect $50 either side move in gold from the current price of $1347.90. Silver on the other hand needs a daily close over $1740 today and Monday to zoom.
Trader reaction to NFP has been very late over the past one year. I have seen reaction based on the numbers shift to the following Monday. Many a times on NFP days, gold, silver or the US dollar prices have reacted in just the opposite way of the NFP data and reversed on the following Monday. One needs to look for such signs today and Monday. No need to panic. Just trade in the technical.
