    Should You Be Worried about the Possible Yield Curve Inversion?

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different times. When the yield curve (BND) inverts, it means that the yields of shorter-duration securities become larger than those of longer-term securities. The inversion of the yield curve has been a good indicator of upcoming recessions in the past.

    US Dollar Strengthens after Dry Spell: Can It Continue?

    In August, the dollar came under pressure due to President Trump’s criticism of the Fed’s interest rate hikes as well as political uncertainty in the United States. The most recent speech by Fed chair Jerome Powell was slightly dovish (TLT), which led to a further slump in the dollar and a surge in gold. Year-to-date, the US dollar has gained whenever trade tensions have escalated and has weakened when trade tensions looked to be easing.

    Why Morgan Stanley and Standard Chartered Expect Gold to Recover

    After gold prices (GLD) fell to a 19-month low in mid-August, Morgan Stanley (MS) said that safe-haven buying in gold has fallen. The bank said, “Any hint of safe-haven buying, spurred by global trade tensions and fears of escalating emerging market volatility, has been drowned out by a conflation of bearish market drivers.” MS attributed gold’s decline to strength in the US dollar (UUP) as well as the decoupling of the US economy (SPY) (IVV) from the rest of the world. As far as interest rates (TLT) are concerned, MS is expecting a total of four rate hikes this year and two next year.

    These Analysts Expect Gold Prices to Rebound on Short Squeeze

    As reported by Morningstar, UBS strategist Joni Teves believes that the shorting of gold (GLD) “should ultimately be supportive” for the metal and allow “ample space for positions to be rebuilt ahead.” While UBS has lowered its expectations for gold prices in the third quarter, it kept the average for the full year unchanged. According to Business Insider, Bank of America Merrill Lynch (or BAML) chief investment strategist, Michael Harnett, says that gold prices (IAU) have weakened in 2018 along with emerging market (EEM) currencies as the US dollar (UUP) has strengthened while US interest rates (TLT) remain attractive. BAML expects gold prices to climb above $1,300 per ounce by the end of 2018.

    Gold Surges, Dollar Declines after Fed Chair’s Speech

    Gold (GLD) is poised to post its first weekly gain in seven weeks on the back of a weakness in the US dollar (UUP). In his much-anticipated speech at the annual meeting of central bankers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Fed chair Jerome Powell said the Fed is committed to continuing to gradually raise interest rates (TLT) since the US (SPY) (IVV) economy remains strong.

    A September Rate Hike Is Almost Certain—Beyond That, It’s Murky

    On August 22, the Federal Reserve released the minutes from the meeting it held from July 31 to August 1. According to the Fed, if the incoming data continue to support their outlook, “it would likely soon be appropriate to take another step in removing policy accommodation.” This statement is a strong signal that the rate is going up again in September. The Fed started quantitative easing and the near-zero interest rate policy after the Great Recession to encourage more borrowing to boost the economy.
