Gold Supported by Geopolitical Risks in Middle East and China, Currency and Trade War

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2011 Oct 12, 2011 - 09:20 AM GMT

By: GoldCore

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold is trading at USD 1,684.20, EUR 1,221.90, GBP 1,068.81, JPY 129,103.00, AUD 1,663.34 and CHF 1,509.80 per ounce.

Gold’s London AM fix this morning was USD 1,687.00, GBP 1,070.36 and EUR 1,222.02 per ounce.


Yesterday’s AM fix was USD 1,662.00, GBP 1,064.09 and EUR 1,222.96 per ounce.

Cross Currency Table

Gold has traded in a range between $1,580/oz and $1,680/oz for two weeks. Gold has broken out above the upper end of the range and resistance at $1,680/oz this morning. A close above $1,680/oz and rise to over $1,700/oz could result in gold quickly rising back to $1,800/oz.

Gold in US Dollars – 30 Day (Tick)

Support is at $1,600/oz, $1,580/oz and below that strong support is seen at the lows reached on September 26th of $1,532.70/oz.

Market participants are divided as to whether this is consolidation prior to a resumption of the bull market, whether a further sell off takes place or whether a bear market has commenced.

Strong physical demand being seen internationally, but especially in Asia, would suggest that gold may have bottomed and the bull market is set to continue in the traditionally strong autumn and winter months.

The fundamental factors that have driven the gold market in recent years - macroeconomic, monetary, systemic and geopolitical risk – also suggest gold’s bull market is set to continue.

Geopolitical risk is seen in the bizarre alleged plot by the Iranian revolutionary guard to use a purported Mexican drug dealer to assassinate Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States.

The Obama administration plans to leverage the incident into a new global campaign to further isolate the Islamic republic and maintain US dominance over the strategically vital region.

Gold in Euros – 30 Day (Tick)

The Middle East is already a tinder box on the brink of conflict over Iran's nuclear programme, with Israel increasingly twitchy over the progress Tehran is making towards an alleged capacity to make nuclear weapons.

A small spark such as this alleged plot and the reaction of the US, Iranian, Saudi and Israeli governments could result in military conflict in the region. Also, there are simmering geopolitical tensions between the US and the increasingly powerful Russia and China about the Middle East.

A military conflict would see oil and gold prices rise sharply due to supply concerns and safe haven demand respectively.

Geopolitical risk and the geopolitical instability in North Africa and the Middle East was one of the factors that led to gold’s rise in recent months and it is likely to remain an important driver of prices in the coming months.

Monetary risk remains and the Slovakian vote is another reminder of the real risk posed to the Eurozone and the euro through contagion.

Currency and macroeconomic risk is also seen in the Chinese warning to the US overnight that the US currency law risks a trade war and a 1930s style Depression.

Gold in Chinese Yuan – 30 Day (Tick)

Systemic risk remains heightened and Trichet acknowledged that yesterday with his warning that the crisis is ‘systemic’ and his warning that the high interconnectedness in the EU financial system has led to a rapidly rising risk of ‘significant contagion’.

European banks are on the verge of collapse and global debt markets risk a critical meltdown.

Finally, these risks are contributing to elevated macroeconomic risk and the significant risk of severe recessions in all major economies and the risk of a new Great Depression.

Gold remains an essential diversification that will protect from the real risks facing investors and savers today.

Those negative on gold and calling gold a bubble continue to focus almost exclusively on price.

A more enlightened approach for those genuinely concerned about people’s financial welfares would be to advocate a diversification into the safe haven asset and currency that is gold in order to protect against these real risks
