Main St. Overwhelmingly Bearish On Gold; Wall St. Bullish

Main Street may be more bearish than ever on the direction of gold prices thisweek, while Wall Street leans bullish, based on the weekly Kitco News gold survey. Over the years, Main Street has tended to be mostly bullish on the metal. However, retail investors have called gold to be lower in three of the last four weeks, and perhaps never by as large of a percentage as this week. A total of 2,411 voters responded in a Main Street survey. Of these, 1,796 respondents, or 74%, predicted that...

Dollar dips on trade optimism, U.S.-China talks awaited

The dollar sagged on Monday as investor demand for the safe-haven currency receded on optimism over a reduction in U.S.-China trade tensions, with the focus on discussions between the two countries due this week. The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies was little changed at 96.126 after losing 0.55 percent on Friday. Escalating trade tensions between the United States and its trading partners, in addition to a plunge in the Turkish lira, has taken a heavy toll on emerging...

These 3 Drivers Will Support Gold In The Short-Term - ING
Tuesday, 22 May 2018 05:01 WIB | GOLD CORNER |Gold OutlookGold Corner

Even as gold continues to trade below $1,300, the œfundamental case for holding the yellow metal remains intact, said Dutch bank ING, listing three main drivers that will provide support to prices.

œWe look to physical demand, geopolitics, and inflation to provide support, ING commodities strategist Oliver Nugent said in a note published on Friday.

Gold prices closed the week below $1,300 an ounce for the first time this year, after posting the largest weekly decline since December 2017. The biggest drop was on Tuesday when the precious metal plunged more than 2%.

As Asian markets opened on Monday, spot gold on Kitco.com was trading at $1,290, down 0.12% on the day, while June Comex gold futures were last at $1,290.10, down 0.09% on the day.

ING said it doesn™t expect to see gold prices fall much further, but does project for the next couple of months to be dull before any significant rebound is seen.

œThings shouldn™t get much worse, but it will take time before we see improvement, Nugent said. œWe expect longer-term holders/consumers to build a floor for the yellow metal even if it remains shunned by active money managers hunting for more attractive near-term returns.

One of the signs that gold will hold its ground is ETF holdings, which increased to the highest level since 2013 and are showing little sign of liquidation after a drop in prices, Nugent added.

Another key aspect is ING™s forecast that the U.S. dollar is likely to reverse its rally later in the year, pressured down by uncertainties in the U.S.

œWe look to the flattening yield curve and burgeoning twin trade deficits against the looming catalyst of mid-year elections or nearer term trade spats that could highlight the US policy/political uncertainties and spell a reversal for the greenback, Nugent said. œAs the dollar eases, it will be game back on for our bullish gold view, given our expectations for inflation to pick up substantially this year.

Physical gold demand will also play a key role in boosting gold prices, according to ING.

œWe are under no illusion that rates and currencies direct gold above everything else, but the impact of a tightening physical market will play an increasing role to cushion these lows, noted Nugent.

Lackluster physical demand in the first quarter of the year was likely a temporary letdown, the strategist pointed out.

œThe World Gold Council estimated a 7% YoY decline for Q1 demand which was a decade low and led very much by the 12% collapse in India. However, as the WGC point out, Q1 Indian demand was temporarily hit by the fewer auspicious days in the quarter (days deemed lucky for weddings). There were only seven such auspicious days in Q1 compared to 33 for the rest of the year.

On top of that, there are some geopolitical issues that could come back and add support to gold prices, including North Korea negotiations and the EU-US trade standoff, Nugent added.
