Gold spot 4 hours chart

The precious metals market is reorganizing itself in an orderly meaner and all steps are being made to allow much higher natural prices.

As I said before there is no need to fight the Forex of nature and gold is no one enemy but it could certainly be everyone savior.

Hence my bias continue to be to the up side, and the look is after bottoms, not tops!

Technically the channel chart is still intact; you can click on the chart below to enlarge:

Gold Wave count

This week gold didn't do much in terms of price but it proved itself comfortable at current levels. The USD Index had a good week so the gold performance in Euro, Yen. Etc was actually better. (Usually there is no need to pay much attention to the managed Forex casino)
I have annotated a daily gold chart with Forks and wave count covering the start of the second wave.

Golden toughts…

Why fight the forex of nature? As we all know the ESF is a leading force in the gold market. Now we all have to ask our selves – what happen when the ESF decide to change position and close all of its short positions and go long? After all the gold market at much higher levels will have the capacity to accommodate much of the paper liquidity plus the Fed should still be the largest gold bug on earth.

Silver Breakout

Good day for the precious metals, Platinum made an all time high, Silver broke out of a triangle pattern with target of well above 10$, Gold had a modestly good day.

Gold and Silver intraday spot charts

It appears like both gold and silver are pretty comfortable at current levels. I again re modified the wave counts (annotated on the charts). Silver had built an extended box formation and the breakout should be powerful – Up in my opinion.

The "professional" analysts are always looking for some kind of political news to explain the price of gold , but remember, this market is subject to growing demand and rigid to declining supply , the renewed recognition of gold as the base monetary asset and the waves of almost infinite paper liquidity looking for home… All are long term global forces.

Gold spot two hours chart

Gold channel chart still intact, silver actually behaved stronger today giving sign of an imminent breakout.

Gold Short positions

It is very difficult to know how much gold is really sold short because many trading houses are holding spread positions due to arbitrage trading. Also most of the positions seems to be OTC derivatives.

Here is a summery of the open Interest for the COMEX (NY) , CBOT and TOCOM (Japan), Options are not included.

COMEX (CFTC) : 361,704 x 100 oz = 36,170,400 oz
CBOT : (12,404 x 100 oz = 1,240,400 oz + 4,853 x 33.2 oz = 161119.6 oz) = 1,401,519.6 oz
TOCOM : 342,873 x 33 oz = 11,314,809 oz

COMEX + CBOT + TOCOM = 48,886,728 oz

Few notes...

Gold channel chart still valid, Silver consolidating and might be coiling.

Please see latest copper chart for an inspiration of what movement gold can have. (Link)

I found this interesting information about gold content in ocean water:

"There are about 26,000 tones of gold in the ocean, about 5 grams for each of the 5 billion humans on the Earth."(Link)

Short study about gold short positions will be published soon.

Thoughts on gold

Gold is neither holy nor sacred; I do not worship gold or anything else for that matter.
The purpose of this site is to share my thoughts and knowledge.
Many analysts tend to explain the movements in the price of gold with political events, I disagree about that. In my opinion the price of gold doesn't have much to do with politics like most analysts tend to think.

What are the drivers behind the price of gold?

The variables which determine the price of gold could be devised into two main groups:

Internal variables:

1) Physical gold supply(limited) and demand.

2) Paper gold (futures, options, OTC derivatives, CFD, ETF, etc.) supply (unlimited) and demand.

3) Crowd psychology regarding gold – is gold cheap or expensive?, should I buy, sell or hold?, why is the price going up or down? , fear and greed. Etc.

External factors:

1) Monies supply in the form of M1, M2, M3…Mn , for each currency C1, C2, C3…Ck, Subtotal of the summarize matrix {[Mn] X [Ck]}

2) Systematic risks and malfunctions of the global monetary system and the crowd psychology regarding those issues.

3) Inflations deflations debates, expectations and perceptions.

All of those are very complicated issues which are largely misunderstood even by the professional gold analysts. That’s my opinion and this is why technical analysis is so important when you want to understand the gold market.

Some points about Gold , this Site(Blog) and Myself

1) Im not a multi millionaire investor, not a professional author and English is not my mother language. I would like to stay anonymous.

2) Gold is an asset with extraordinary bullish fundamentals and technicals. I'm biased to the bullish side looking for bottoms not tops , it will stay that way for some time I suppose.

4) One of the biggest misunderstandings in the Investment world is the difference between investing and saving. In my opinion it is very simple: investing is putting capital to work in an active way (building a factory or a mine for instance..) while saving is more of a passive way to use capital (usually in the form of buying something on paper from brokers or buying gold coin from bullion shops) and gold is an excellent way to save capital in my opinion.

5) This site is hosted on Google bloger network mainly for security and privacy reasons.

6) I don’t write much when there isn't something special to write about.

7) I put lots of effort updating this site , feel free to enjoy it and benefit . If you wish to support this work click on the "make a donation" button on the bottom of the page.

Gold Oil ratio

The gold oil ratio is still historically very low, in other words: gold is still cheap also when compared to oil.

See my previous review of gold oil ratio (weekly chart):
Oil itself has more then a few bullish fundamentals and seems at the beginning of a recovery from the latest correction. see oil charts here:
Overall and in my opinion both Gold and Oil are headed higher in 2006 but gold should finally outperform.

Gold 4 hours and Gold / Silver exchange rate charts

Again, not much change in the gold price today, the channel chart is looking good and from the intraday action its seems like support is being built.

The Ratio between gold and silver is about 60, so sixty oz of silver are worth one ounce of gold. The chart is building a 20 month triangle formation and later this year we should see one of them outperforming the other significantly.

Time to review the Gold : Euro & Gold : Yen exchange rates

Gold the ultimate Forex, for two decades it was somewhat misused by central banks, commercial banks and even some of its producers - the miners. Well, look like its time to pay the bill. Unlike other assets which have the benefits of: growth, dividends, competitive interest rates, etc. Gold is a rare metallic mineral, the money of nature, a currency with thousands years of history – that’s all and that’s enough.

Nothing much to say, a bit of consolidation, possibly some profit taking and more shorts trying to catch tops- Will only serve as jet fuel for the next rally which could come real soon. In my opinion the real party will only start once gold will take out its all time high of 1980. More later… real1.

Gold & Silver 1 hour charts

Nothing goes straight up, so are gold and silver. Silver was leading to the upside (rallied 100 cents with no corrections) and now leading to the downside, already touched its 50% Fibonacci retracement line. Gold did not pull back much like silver and shouldn’t go much lower then the 38.2 Fibonacci retracement line( if any). You can use this opportunity to add more positions.

Gold 8 hour chart

It was an excellent new year start for gold , silver and their indices. The 8/24 hours gold spot chart is annotated with a 3 parallel lines to make it easier to see where things are probably headed and what performance one should expect from the Forex of nature.
In the future I might post some gold and silver stocks charts but I want to warn you that the stocks tough can and do outperform the physical stuff are very different from the metal itself for obvious reasons.
So is the futures, cfds , options , derivatives ..etc- which are all paper gold instruments and under some circumstances could be defaulted .
