Gold on a sec… gold just posted its highest monthly close on record

Gold just posted its highest monthly close on record, and now trades less than $40 from its record high set in May. With seasonality on its side, I suspect another crack at the record high could be in order. Although it does run the risk of a shakeout around the milestone level.

Gold analysis: Metal falls back as yields rebound

Gold spent the whole of last week consolidating its sharp 7% rise recorded in October, ending a run of three consecutive weekly gains. The precious metal has struggled to move north of the key $2000 mark, though the metal hasn’t exactly sold off yet.

Gold may be lower against the dollar, but it’s holding up elsewhere

Despite competing with the strength of the dollar, gold has been trading higher against all other major currencies since its low in August. This could suggest that gold is acting as a safe haven, even if it is not immediately obvious from the XAU/USD chart.

Gold outlook: Will Fed trigger rally or sell-off?

Gold is holding above $2K ahead of the Fed & ECB rate decisions. Our bullish gold outlook remains intact heading into these events.


Gold outlook: Above $2K again as dollar eases

The gold outlook has improved because of a drop in US dollar and bond yields, following the release of more disappointing US data.


Gold outlook: Metal below $2K as dollar advances

While the metal may well extend its drop in the short-term, my longer-term gold outlook remains positive. I therefore envisage a rise to a new record high soon.
