Metals Rally As Dollar Fades

Generally, the leading industrial, and precious metal stocks will be the first equities to catch a bid when the U.S. Dollar Index declines intra-day. This morning, traders can easily see how the SPDR Gold Trust (ETF) (NYSEARCA:GLD), ProShares Ultra Silver (ETF) (NYSEARCA:AGQ), and the PowerShares DB Gold Double Long ETN (NYSEARCA:DGP) are all catching an early bid as the dollar retreats from the open. All of these trading vehicles will signal inflation in the stocks market and that is…

What Is Gold Telling Us Today?

There is a very simply rule that traders should follow, when gold is trading higher it is signaling an inflating stock market. The opposite is true when gold is trading lower, it is signaling a deflating stock market. Gold and the major stock indexes are synonymous at this time and will trade in the same direction. Traders and investors should know that gold often leads the stock markets and will usually signal the direction for the major stock indexes.

The Gold Barometer

Every trader in the world follows gold and they should. When gold rallies, or bounces higher it will usually signal that inflation is being pumped into the stock market. The opposite is true when gold declines and sells off, it will signal that the stock market indexes are deflating and will trade lower. Gold is the ultimate barometer of the amount of stimulus that the central banks are creating and putting into the market.

Traders can easily see the move in…

Gold Retreats Intra-day, Is There More To Come?

Spot gold for December ended the session lower by $3.60 to $1873.30 an ounce. Earlier in the day, gold reached a new all time high of $1923.70 before reversing lower. Many traders and investors believe that it is the strong surge in the U.S. Dollar Index that helped to pullback gold back from the intra-day highs. While a stronger U.S. Dollar Index will usually cause most industrial commodities to retreat it usually has very little effect on gold these days. Many traders are…

Nasdaq Gets The Pile-Driver

This afternoon, the major stock indexes are plummeting sharply lower. The catalyst for the decline is obviously the failure of Washington coming to some debt ceiling resolution. At this point, it really does not matter if the debt ceiling gets raised or not, it really comes down to knowing what the politicians are really going to do. It will help if the Republicans simply come out and say the debt ceiling will not be raised, period. This action would help to strengthen the U.S. Dollar and… Continue
