Wall, Main St. See Price Recovery
Monday, 7 May 2018 07:57 WIB | GOLD CORNER |Gold OutlookGold Corner

Wall Street and Main Street both look for gold to continue its recovery this week, based on the Kitco News weekly gold survey.

Comex June gold last week fell as far as $1,302.30 an ounce, its weakest level of the year. Since, however, prices have ticked higher again. One widely anticipated event that occurred last week was a Federal Open Market Committee meeting in which interest rates were left unchanged and policymakers did not signal materially more aggressive future tightening. Meanwhile, an April jobs report that showed less-than-forecast payroll gains of 164,000.

Eighteen market professionals took part in the survey. Twelve respondents, or 67%, called for gold prices to rise this week. Another four voters, or 22%, looked for gold to fall, while two, or 11%, called for a sideways market.

Meanwhile, 809 voters responded in an online Main Street survey. A total of 557 respondents, or 69%, predicted that gold prices would be higher this week. Another 183 voters, or 23%, said gold will fall, while 69, or 9%, see a sideways market.

The smaller-than-forecast rise in April nonfarm payrolls should bode well for gold, says Phil Flynn, senior market analyst with Price Futures Group. œEven though the overall jobless rate went down [to 3.9%], the headline weakness should allay fears the Federal Reserve will be more aggressive on interest rates in the future, Flynn said.

Further, he added, geopolitical worries are likely to impact markets, particularly whether the U.S. backs out of the nuclear accord with Iran.

George Gero, managing director with RBC Wealth Management, looks for gold to rise, with a potential trade war once again impacting markets. œWe™re past the major worries we had with the Fed and jobs report, Gero said.

Jim Wyckoff, senior technical analyst with Kitco, looks for gold to trade higher since œit appears strong support at $1,300 is holding.

Meanwhile, Kevin Grady, president of Phoenix Futures and Options LLC, is one of the respondents who are bearish, citing gold™s break this week to a new low for the year and also the fact that prices remain just under the 200-day moving average. Expectations for higher U.S. interest rates will keep the market in check, he said. Grady also pointed to recent peaceful rhetoric on the Korean Peninsula, which takes away some safe-haven demand.

œWe™re going to see some new shorts [bearish positions] coming into the market, Grady predicted.

Richard Baker, editor of the Eureka Miner Report, looks for gold to test the bottom end of its trading range.

œBarring a political/geopolitical shock, it is unlikely that the yellow metal will sustain rally against a rising U.S. dollar, which made a new high for the year after the weaker-than-expected nonfarm payroll report, he said.

Baker later added: œOn a positive, it appears the march of higher U.S. interest and inflation rates has stalled given comments by the Federal Reserve on inflation and an economy that added fewer jobs than expected. Rising U.S. deficits will establish a floor for gold prices, and it is likely that prices will stay in a range above $1,300 per ounce.

Colin Cieszynski, chief market strategist at SIA Wealth Management, is neutral unless gold breaks out of its trading range.

œI remain neutral on gold for this week as it remains in the $1,300-$1,360 range, he said. œHowever, USD [U.S. dollar] is climbing despite soft payrolls, so if gold breaks $1,300 I would turn bearish.
