  • Is Jeffrey Gundlach’s Prediction on US Stock Markets Coming True?

    Is Jeffrey Gundlach’s Prediction on US Stock Markets Coming True?

    On November 20, Jeffrey Gundlach told Reuters that investors haven’t shown an appetite for Treasuries (TLT) even though US stock markets have fallen. He said, “Obviously, it is not a deflationary bear market, otherwise you would have a bond rally.” Gundlach also advised investors to stay out of investment-grade bonds. Gundlach is concerned that the selling pressure in the US stock markets (IVV) (QQQ) wasn’t accompanied by higher volatility (VIX). Investors should note that the drop on December 4 was also accompanied by higher volumes and volatility.

Looming earnings deceleration, trade policy uncertainty, and the Fed’s tightening have been major factors weighing on investors’ minds. For most of this year, gold (GLD) has not been a safe-haven asset, as the US dollar (UUP) (USDU) has continued strengthening and the Fed’s rate hike outlook has remained strong.

    Could Gold Rise despite a Strengthening US Dollar?

    Eureka for Gold Mining ETFs?

    Gold bugs, pull the gold bar out from beneath your mattress and admire its luster as the precious metal's price catches a bid. As of Oct. 23, gold futures for December 2018 are up 2.4% for the month, with several analysts predicting further gains. "We have a bullish outlook through the end of the year and into next year," said Jim Steel, chief precious metals analyst at HSBC, as reported in a CNBC article. Gold prices are likely to be supported in the near term by improved emerging market physical demand and short covering during periods of equity market volatility.

    Leveraged Gold ETFs Slough Off Trade Wars

    Leveraged gold ETFs like the Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF (JNUG) and Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bull 3X ETF (NUGT) sloughed off any possible negative effects of the escalating trade war between the United States and China. In less than 24 hours, China responded to the latest salvo of tariffs fired off by U.S. President Donald Trump as Beijing announced it will impose $60 billion worth of tariffs on U.S. goods beginning on Sept. 24. The new round of tariffs from China are said to affect a list of 5,207 products within a range of 5 to 10% as both the U.S. and China have already slapped each other with tariffs worth $50 billion total.

    Inflation, Rates, U.S. Dollar Could Set Leveraged Gold ETFs in Motion

    The dollar got some news it didn't want to hear on Thursday when the U.S. Commerce Department reported that the consumer price index (CPI) rose during the month of August albeit at a slower pace than the previous month, reflecting the first slowdown in the past year. Rather than investing in gold directly or trading its spot prices, investors can use leveraged ETFs to amplify their gold plays, such as the  Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bull 3X ETF (JNUG) . The Commerce Department reported that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 0.2% during the month of August, but fell short of the expectations set forth by polled economists who forecasted a gain of 0.3%. The prevailing sentiment in the capital markets thus far is that the Federal Reserve is expected to raise the federal funds rate two more times before the end of 2018–whether or not the latest inflation numbers are enough to give pause to that notion remains to be seen.

    Gold Miners ETFs: Poised for Something Big?

    As has been documented, gold prices have faltered over the past several months. An interesting element in that scenario is that gold miners ETFs, such as the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (NYSEArca: GDX ), the largest exchange traded fund dedicated to gold mining stocks, have performed less poorly than ETFs focusing on physical gold. GDX is comprised of global gold miners, with a notable tilt toward Canadian and U.S. mining companies.

    Does Speculative Positioning Imply that Gold’s Bottom Is Near?

    The CFTC (Commodity Futures Trading Commission) reports the position of major players in the futures market through its COT (Commitment of Traders) report. According to the COT report for the week ended June 26, 2018, money managers were barely net long on gold with just over 4,000 net speculative long contracts. According to Commerzbank, “Short positions, in particular, were built up, which means speculative financial investors are currently betting heavily on falling prices.” For the week ended June 3, money managers kept their positions almost unchanged, which implies the lowest levels of net long positioning since late 2015 when gold prices dipped below $1,050 per ounce.

    US Consumers and Businesses Feel Heat of Trade Spats

    As we’ve discussed previously in this series, the escalating trade tensions haven’t been able to support gold much in 2018 mainly due to the simultaneous appreciation in the US dollar (USDU), which has capped gold’s gains. While the index for current conditions came in as expected, the sentiment over future business conditions and income prospects declined. Investors should note that consumer spending (XLY) constitutes more than two-thirds of the US economy.
