SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) - NYSEARCA
  • Oct. 22, 2015, 3:34 AM
    • Gold has recaptured its shine in recent months, but that doesn't change the cloudy outlook for the precious metal over the longer-term, warns Goldman Sachs, which sees prices falling to $1,000 in 12 months as the Fed normalizes monetary policy.
    • The yellow metal has rallied almost 8% since mid-July reflecting a reduction in expectations for a U.S. rate hike in 2015, a spike in global equity market volatility and lower U.S. long-term real rates. It's currently trading at $1,168 an ounce.

    • Gold settles at three-and-a-half month highs, rallying $14.50 (+1.2%) to $1180/oz., as soft U.S. economic data and concerns over deflationary pressures in China add to expectations the Fed will delay any interest rate increases.

    • Gold has climbed to a seven-week high bolstered by a weaker dollar and continuing expectations the Fed won't hike interest rates in 2015.
    • "Markets are continuing to price in doubt about a Fed rate hike in December despite Vice Chairman Fischer's weekend comments," said Ric Spooner, chief analyst at CMC Markets.
    • The yellow metal gained as much as 0.9% to $1,166.80 an ounce, the highest since August 24, following a 1.6% advance in the previous session.

    • Gold has plenty going for it - particularly a Fed reluctant to hike rates amid a run of lame economic data. The metal's inability to break higher, says UBS, suggests many investors just don't care. "Investors' thresholds for warming up to gold are relatively high at the moment - stronger evidence seems to be needed in order to shift gold sentiment materially."
    • "The key missing piece for gold right now is physical demand and this seems to have captured market participants' attention. Lackluster physical buying so far during this typically-strong period is disappointing investors and likely adding to the reluctance."
    • Gold is flat in morning action at $1,138 per ounce.

    • The yellow metal is ahead 1.7% to $1,150 per ounce, its highest level since the panicky action of late August. It's been able to hold its gains today despite a big bounce in U.S. stocks - down just modestly now after being lower by well more than 1% a couple of hours ago.
    • Caterpillar remains lower by 6.25% after cutting 2015 guidance, warning on 2016, and setting in place major job cuts. Interest rate markets are busy pricing out chances of a Fed rate hike this year - now a roughly 50/50 proposition.

    • Trading at about $1,115 per ounce head of the FOMC decision yesterday afternoon, the yellow metal jumped about $15 per ounce in the immediate aftermath of the news, and has tacked on more this morning, now going for $1,137.
    • The statement, economic projections, and Yellen press conference did imply at least one rate hike is still coming this year, but October hardly seems likely at the moment. ZIRP could remain in place at least another three months.

    • Slightly in the red for most of the morning following yesterday's melt-up, crude oil has turned sharply higher again in the past few minutes, now up 3.75% to $44.16 per barrel. Black gold had traded south of $38 during Monday's panic.
    • Asleep for most of the week as the markets tossed and turned, gold has moved higher by 1.15% to $1,135.50 per ounce.
    • There's no particular news out, but an appearance on CNBC by leading Fed dove Kocherlakota (not a FOMC voter this year) makes for a good excuse. Given the weakening inflation numbers, the Minneapolis Fed boss said a near-term rate hike would not be appropriate. More interesting, he's not against consideration of QE4, and says the Fed still has asset-purchase tools.

    • Europe has turned green after being down more than 2% earlier, and U.S. stock index futures are now ahead by about 2.5%.
    • Beijing overnight pumped more money into propping up China's markets and economy, and the ECB this morning hinted at a QE boost.
    • After putting in only a modest rally amid the market panic of the last three sessions, gold is lower by 1.2% on today's session, and back to $1,125 per ounce.

    • Gold had caught a bit of a bid over the past couple of weeks thanks to likely oversold conditions combining with macro jitters, but with the panicky action in equities worsening into today's close the yellow metal is seeing little interest, up $6 per ounce to $1,159.
    • The S&P 500 is down 2.95% and the Nasdaq 3.35%.
    • Silver is lower on the session by 1.7% to $15.26 per ounce.

    • The averages bottomed out more than 1% lower just before noon, and have been given an extra charge from the FOMC minutes which at first glance show maybe a smaller-than-expected sentiment for an imminent rate hike.
    • The Dow (DIA -0.1%), S&P 500 (SPY -0.1%), and Nasdaq 100 (QQQ +0.1%) have all returned to nearly flat.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield fell as low at 2.13% in the aftermath of the minutes from 2.23 earlier in the session. The rebound in stocks, however, is drawing some money out of fixed income, and the yield has bounced back to 2.15%. TLT +0.4%, TBT -0.8%
    • Oil continues sharply lower, and is within a few cents of trading with a $39 handle.
    • Gold (GLD +1.1%)  has added to gains post-minutes, now up 1.2% on the session at $1,130 per ounce.
    • Previously: FOMC minutes: Getting closer to rate hike (Aug. 19)
