Gold & Silver; Global Recovery will Dampen Gold

As the Chinese Lunar New Year surge in demand for gold come to an end, we see minor correction as gold retraced lower after hitting high of $ 1276. Improved economic data forced the Federal Reserve to taper another $ 10 billion and Miss Yellen seems to be well underway in taking control of the market sentiment. Before she chaired the top role, she made it clear that easy monetary policy will stay on the table for as long as needed. At the moment, the recovering economy can do with less easing. Equity tumbled and the minor correction is underway, with the real question of how much correction will there be?
Developing economies will take the biggest brunt as “hot” money continues to move back to developed economy. Our take is that the currency market in those economies will have to adapt with higher interest rate and possibly a minor turbulent with liquidity. Meanwhile, developed economies will have to face higher inflation and possibly an overheating economy.



Gold Technical Outlook

Weekly Chart

Ever since the start of 2014, the yellow metal has started rather well to move higher. However, the steam to go higher seems to have reached a stalling momentum. Succession of higher high stopped as we approached the end of January. Gold will be vulnerable to selling in the next few weeks once support breaks $ 1238 and $ 1228. A revisit at $ 1180 is not out of the question if $ 1200 fails to hold. It remain possible to reach as low as $ 1125 or beyond that at $ 1040. The weekly downtrend remains solid, with a rebound as an opportunity to sell further.

Resistance: $ 1277, $ 1296, $ 1324 Support: $ 1237, $ 1227, $ 1180


Traders Notes: Flat for now. Buy on the break of $ 1301 target $ 1324 (stop at $ 1291).

Short Term (1 - 3 weeks) Medium Term (1 - 3 months) Long Term (6- 12 months)
Bearish $ 1221 Bullish - $ 1321 Target $ 1400


Silver Technical Outlook

Weekly Chart

As gold continue to see downward pressure, silver on the other hand did not manage to move higher. Instead, it has been struggling despite better economic data which to date remain a question if this recovery is here to stay. Downtrend channel line remains intact and will continue to drive the prices lower for now. Only a break above $ 21.05 can spark further buying to retest resistance at $ 21.80, followed by $ 22.20.


Resistance: $ 21.05, $ 21.40, $ 21.80 Support: $ 19.00, $ 18.85, $ 18.55


Traders Notes: Flat
