Gold Set for First Monthly Close Above $700 Since Jan 1980

Commodities / Gold & Silver Sep 28, 2007 - 09:43 AM GMT

By: Gold_Investments

Commodities Gold
Gold made a new 28 year high close on the COMEX in New York yesterday. It was up $4.70 to $732.50 at the close. In overnight trading in Asia and Europe gold has continued to rally and has risen to $738.00/738.50 per ounce as of 1130 GMT. There seems to be strong support now at $726.


If gold closes over $700 today it will be the first time since 1980 that we have had a monthly close above $700. In January 1980 gold closed at $681.50 after its speculative blow off. Prior to this month there had only been four days when gold has closed higher than the $731.40 .They were on the January 21st, 1980 top and the three previous days before that record high. The first monthly close for gold above $700 is very significant.

It is important to keep an eye on this big picture which is showing that gold is again in the early to middle stages of a new multi year bull market which is based on a very solid foundations unlike it's counterpart in the late 1970's which ended in a speculative blow off. This bull market will also witness a speculative blow off in a few years time when gold is likely to be valued at above $2000 per ounce.

The euro hit a new all time high against the pummeled dollar overnight at 1.4182. This is the dollar's seventh straight record daily low against the euro which is very unusual and highly supportive of the gold price. Oil rallying to new record highs overnight and remaining at a higher plateau will likely make any possible gold correction shallow and short. The Reuters/Jefferies CRB Index rose 1.44 percent to a new record high. With oil, wheat and many other commodities at all time highs there is clearly growing inflation in the global economy and this will likely manifest itself in higher inflation in the coming months.

Increasing global macroeconomic and systemic risk is leading to many respected analysts ratcheting up their gold price forecasts. The Time of London reported that Christopher Wood, chief strategist at Hong Kong broker CLSA (whose largest shareholder is France's Credit Agricole, the world's 7th largest bank by asset value) feels that "market ructions and a collapse of the dollar could send gold prices to $3,400 an ounce or more in the next three years."

Citigroup, have acknowledged that central banks have been suppressing the price of gold. The acknowledgement came in a long report on the prospects for the metals and mining industry, "Gold: Riding the Reflationary Rescue." which endorses GATA's contention. It was written by Citigroup analysts John H. Hill and Graham Wark, who, in a section titled "Central Banks: Capitulating on Gold?," write: "Official sales ran hot in 2007, offset by rapid de-hedging. Gold undoubtedly faced headwinds this year from resurgent central bank selling, which was clearly timed to cap the gold price. Our sense is that central banks have been forced to choose between global recession or sacrificing control of gold, and have chosen the perceived lesser of two evils."

There was a shock drop in German retail sales and consumer morale in UK fell sharply in the wake of the Northern Rock crisis, hitting its lowest level in almost two years, a survey showed on Friday.

Signs that the credit crunch has not gone away was seen in the FT reporting that Northern Rock borrowed another £5bn from the Bank of England. This brings its indebtedness to the central bank close to £8bn since it was given access to emergency funds nearly two weeks ago.


Forex and Gold
The trade weighted USD index traded as low as 78.204. It is now a fraction above it's the all-time low of 78.19 struck on its trade-weighted index in 1992. A close below this level could lead to further dollar selling and a sharper decline. With the US housing market in considerable difficulty and the US economy beginning to slowdown, there will likely be further interest rate cuts which will put even further pressure on the USD.

There is a raft of economic data today and this will determine the USDs short term movements and help evaluate the affect of the sharply slowing housing market on the 'Main Street'. The Chicago PMI, final Michigan sentiment reading for September, August personal incomes, consumer spending for September and core PCE inflation are released today. A number of Federal Reserve officials will also offer their assessment of the slowing US economy.

Further dollar weakness will create increasing demand for gold and ensure that gold prices remain elevated.


Silver
Spot silver was trading at $13.63/13.65 (1130 GMT).

PGMs
Platinum was trading at $1362/1368 (1130 GMT).
Spot palladium was trading at $342/348 an ounce (1130 GMT).

Oil
London Brent crude surged to a record high 80.49 dollars per barrel on storm concerns. New York's main contract added 12 cents to $83, having earlier hit $83.38 - just below its record of $84.10 of last week.
