EM FX is ending last week on a firm note. We believe that the broad-based dollar rally remains intact, but we could see a period of consolidation until the interest rate backdrop becomes more positive for the dollar. The week after next holds the greatest […]

Silver showed impressive resilience on the latest dollar rally, refusing to break to new lows, and with the dollar signaling that its huge rally is burning out, and gold’s COTs now strongly bullish, the outlook for silver is suddenly a lot better. While the bearish scenario […]

As most of you know by now, I am bearish on gold from an intermediate term perspective on account of the fact that I do believe that the Fed is eventually going to have to raise rates and try to somehow normalize monetary policy/interest rates. Perhaps […]

I recently commented that it would not surprise me if bitcoin plunged to $1.00. That was not a prediction, it was a comment.

It was a pretty quiet trading day for gold on Thursday, as there was almost no follow-through price action in the Far East market—and the spike high at 9 a.m. Hong Kong time got capped immediately. Once London opened, the gold […]

Reversing all of yesterday’s FOMC-inspired idiocy, WTI has plunged back to reality this morning. Following comments by Kuwait’s comments that OPEC had no choice but to keep production steady, refocusing the market on global oversupply, April WTI is back down to a $42 handle.
