A total of 60% of the fund managers surveyed cited the trade war risk as the top tail risk.

    A net -11% of respondents in the BAML (Bank of America Merrill Lynch) July survey expect faster economic growth over the next 12 months, which is the lowest since February 2016. At the start of 2018, a net 40% of polled fund managers expected faster economic growth in the next year. While it is very difficult to pinpoint a turning point in the economic cycle, the consensus is generally growing that we are in the late stage of the economic cycle, which typically precedes a recession.

    Falling Commodity Prices Could Bother US Investors

    Although US steel prices and physical aluminum premiums have spiked this year after the Section 232 tariffs, metal prices have been largely subdued. Recently, seaborne iron ore prices fell to a multi-month low. Aluminum, zinc, and copper have also come under pressure amid concerns about the US-China trade war. Gold (GLD), which is generally seen as a safe-haven asset, has also been subdued. However, energy prices (XLE) have shown strength amid supply-side concerns due to looming Iran sanctions.

    Why Second Half of 2018 Could Be Much Brighter for Gold

    In the preceding parts of this series, we discussed how gold prices have remained weaker despite escalating trade war fears and geopolitical tensions. Many of these risks stem from the ongoing trade spats, which would create inflationary (TIP) pressures in the economy apart from uncertainty. Gold (GLD) is often seen as an inflation hedge.

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

    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.

Currency and equity markets were in turmoil as a result of the exit decision, while safe-haven assets including the US dollar, the Japanese yen, and gold surged. After almost two years, the uncertainty related to Brexit could again come in as a support for gold and other precious metals.

  • US Consumers and Businesses Feel Heat of Trade Spats

    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.

  • What Does the Flattening of the Yield Curve Mean for Gold?

    What Does the Flattening of the Yield Curve Mean for Gold?

    A yield curve tracks the yields of Treasury securities maturing at different time periods. The narrowing of the difference between these yields is usually referred to as the “flattening of the yield curve.” The more concerning thing is when the yield curve (BND) inverts, which means that the yields on shorter duration securities increase those on the longer-term securities. The inversion of the yield curve has been a good indicator of an upcoming recession in the past.

    Why Investors Should Take a Look at Gold in H2 2018

    Gold prices have gone through a rough patch recently with prices closing near their seven-month lows. Gold is hitting lows despite many factors that are favoring its safe-haven status. Despite the escalation of trade war fears and political tensions in the European Union, gold prices have been trending lower. While these factors have helped gold, the US dollar is also attracting bids because of these factors, which has capped gold’s gains.
