Gold: Yen Lightning and Love Trade Thunder

Graceland Updates 4am-7am
March 29, 2016

  1. Gold continues to track the sideways action of the US dollar against the Japanese yen, ahead of Friday's important US jobs report.

  2. Investors who focus only on the USDX are focusing mainly on the action of one risk-on currency (the dollar) against another (the euro).

  3. That's a mistake, because gold is the world's premier risk-off asset. Gold's price action against the dollar is highly correlated to the dollar's price action against the Japanese yen.

  4. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. This daily bars chart of the dollar against the yen shows the dollar is meandering sideways, roughly between 111 and 115.

  5. It's unknown whether the dollar will break out to the upside or the downside from this trading range, but the target price zone of the huge head and shoulders top pattern is the 105 -107 area.

  6. A decline to that area would probably be accompanied by gold rallying to $1350, and perhaps to as high as $1500.

  7. Next, please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this daily bars gold chart.

  8. There's a very large inverse head & shoulders bottom pattern forming, and I expect the right shoulder low could occur around the April 19 time frame. Here's why:

  9. That's when the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) is scheduled to launch its gold price fix. The Chinese government has already told Western banks that their gold bullion dealings in China could be curtailed if they do not play a fair and significant role in the new gold fix platform.

  10. Please click here now. Gold often sells off quite strongly after Chinese New Year ends, but investment demand has surged, as I predicted it would when the gold market became more stable.

  11. I have more good news about the love trade, for higher gold price enthusiasts. To view it, please click here now. The ebb and flow of Indian gold demand is highly correlated to the monsoon season.

  12. For the past few years, El Nino has brought warm winters to the West, and relatively dry monsoon seasons to India. That's about to change.

  13. Not only is El Nino fading, but La Nina appears like it will replace it, and that means bumper crops for Indian farmers who are the world's largest gold buyer class!

  14. Also, La Nina can bring cold winters to the West, and higher oil prices. Rising oil prices tend to be accompanied by rising gold prices.

  15. The US jobs report occurs this Friday. Gold has a tendency to be soft in the days ahead of that report, and then stage a nice rally after the report is released.

  16. As the power of the love trade grows, the importance of the US jobs report is waning, and that is adding more overall stability to the market. That stability is highly attractive to Chinese investors.

  17. Polls in the USA suggest that while elderly citizens may want to rebuild the America of the 1950s with a Trump/Cruz team, America's youth are obsessed with socialist Bernie Sanders.

  18. The US 1950s GDP "super boom" occurred after World War Two ended. The America of the 1950s was built by hard working veterans. I'm a little worried that America's senior citizens may be overestimating the heart of the current younger generation to rebuild what they built, even with better tools and technology.

  19. So, my suggestion for stock market enthusiasts who dream of the past is this: focus on Chinese and Indian stock markets, where billions of gold-oriented hard working citizens stand more ready to take on any task, and get the job done.

  20. On that note, please click here now. I've suggested that Chinese stock market declines and crashes need to be bought, rather than predicted. Chinese culture is very old, and that society brings vastly more experience to the table than the West does. The latest news suggests that a major move higher in Chinese markets is coming, and probably in the very near future.

  21. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge this key Chinese stock market chart. From a technical perspective, the upside implications I've annotated on this chart are in sync with the solid fundamentals and pension fund news that is now in play.

  22. Please click here now. Double-click to enlarge. This daily bars GDX chart shows support in the $17 area. I think it's very important for gold stock investors who are out of this market to be substantial buyers in the $20 - $17 area.

  23. I'm a buyer on every 25 cent decline in this price zone, using my systematic capital allocator. If GDX declines below $17, I won't do any more buying unless it makes a new low.

  24. I don't expect that to happen. Instead, I think GDX is going to surprise most analysts, and stage a big rally towards the $28 area. That's mainly because of La Nina affecting Indian demand, the action of the dollar against the yen, and the re-emergence of the Chinese investor class!

Thanks!
Cheers
