Gold after the previous two-week rally, closed Friday, Oct 20, 2017, at $1281, which lost $23, and silver small 34 cents at $17.08 by early European trading. Trading on Comex exchange was subdued, and also the reason for the pause looks to be a continuous the US Dollar rally.
The US Dollar’s rally in all likelihood has been expected, granted its downfall since the beginning of the year. More often than not, it is a pause that shows traders sealing their gains. And whenever that process has ended, the US Dollar’s downtrend in all probability will likely resume.
Gold high demand causes two factors behind the US Dollar’s ongoing weakness. The foreign requirement for the US Dollar is set to weaken, as China continuously chip away at its position as the first payout currency. Most recent movements that will culminate in the impending launch of a Yuan for crude oil futures contract on the SFE (Shanghai Futures Exchange) hit at the heart of the US Dollar’s reputation. Indications are this specific futures contract will begin to trade the following month, to ensure that by the beginning of the new year will be moderately established.
At some point, this will imply that bank credit financed offshore from the US will contract, showing sales of excess US Dollars. To the magnitude these transactions aren't neutralized via currency intervention from the regulators or perhaps the banking institutions bringing down their balance sheets, these excess US Dollars will become onshore, bolstering domestic credit. The exchange coming from offshore to onshore is likely to weaken the US Dollar’s value.
Another reason for the US Dollar’s decline is that China will probably boost requirement for industrial commodities, now as this week’s US Congress may be out of the way. Domestically, America will undoubtedly encounter commodity-driven price inflation, and so will everybody else. However, finding itself being cut herself off from the Asian region development movement, the US overall economy is set to be somewhat fragile. The Federal Reserve is going to be torn in between keeping monetary stimulus intact and the need to hold price inflation. Actual interest rates seem to be likely to become more and more negative under all these circumstances, fueling, even more, US Dollar lack of strength.
The Gold prices are the other side of this spectrum. In the meantime, the chat is of US Dollar interest rates ascending, possibly by an additional 1/4 point, together with a further 1/4 point in the near future. Just how much can this process go, before the US Dollar debt colossal mountain starts to fall into indebtedness?
Trading markets are focused entirely on the short term, not necessarily discounting the increasing problems the US Dollar faces. That's likely to change, and also a time factor might be coupled with China’s intends to grow the volume of Yuan-denominated futures trading contracts. There is some chat that Russia, Iran, along with perhaps Venezuela will sell some of their Yuan for the yellow metal, complementing crude oil to the yellow metal using future contracts in Hong Kong and Shanghai Exchanges. That is going to push the Gold price higher. However, the need to purchase Gold with extra Yuan is not yet been established.
The driving force is going to be the US Dollar, as crude oil exporters begin to see the US Dollar’s inevitable downfall, for the underlying factors stated above. The exporters will look at Gold as a US Dollar hedge, as opposed to a currency substitute to keep and hold. But, in short-term, traders need to grow from being concerned about another increase in the Federal Reserve Funds interest rate towards a more significant understanding of the considerable risks confronted by the US Dollar.
The thought that the Yuan which will quickly replace the US Dollar as the global reserve currency right now is silly for underlying political factors, currency reasons, as well as economic factors. Lastly, given the ramifications of the reserve currency curse, it's doubtful that China actually seeks just what exactly all these Petro-Yuan financial analysts and economists claim.
