Commodities benefit from weaker USD

Market Analysis

XAUUSD, Daily                     

The Greenback has continued its decline this week and the main beneficiaries have been the key commodities of Gold and Silver. Last night’s FOMC minutes added to the negative sentiment for the USD this week. The Doves on the committee were suggesting that weak inflation may not be transitory and caution in raising rates. However, the December rate hike is now “baked in” to expectations and only a significant weakening of the data stream and some major shocks from the current Earnings round would be required to stall the move. GOLD and Silver both triggered LONG positions on the DAILY timeframe on Monday and Gold hit T1 yesterday for a net gain of $10.40 or 1040 pips. I discussed both positions with our live audience at our latest Seminar in Johannesburg on Tuesday evening. More Live seminars next week in South Africa in Durban and Cape Town, join us if you can.
