ASIAN METALS MARKET UPDATE
Gold rose due to safe haven demand on the plunge in global stock market plunge. Gold gained despite a strong US dollar. If gold rises today, then there will be short covering. A lot of short term traders are short. One needs to remain on the sidelines in gold and silver. In case of extreme margin money pressure in stock markets, some of the long positions in precious metals and industrial metals could get liquidated.
One thing I know is that bottom fishing never works whenever anything falls. A week’s fall in global stock markets is an investing opportunity. Short term bearish trend will be there if global stocks markets continue to fall into next week (around Valentine day). If you are sitting on cash, keep a close watch on the stocks you want to invest. Proper stock selection is the key. This is the reason why I prefer everyone to invest in physical gold in small percentage. The value of your stock investment can fall fifty percent under a rout. I do not think gold prices will fall fifty percent under any price crashes in the next few years. There may be times when gold investment returns may not cover real inflation. Safe havens asset classes have very low returns with almost zero chances of capital erosion.
If USA stock markets fall today also, then last night slide could be just the tip of the ice-berg. Buyers and investors will vanish. Margin squeeze could result in more sell off in stock markets. The upcoming twenty four hours is very crucial for global financial markets. Global economy is fundamentally strong. There is nothing to worry. US, Eurozone, China, India, Japan and most nations have rising growth numbers.
