Gold Poised to Resume Recovery on Bernanke Comments

Gold Poised to Resume Recovery on Bernanke Comments

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Gold is correcting lower after Friday’s rally but prices may be quick to recover on dovish comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Talking Points

  • Gold, Silver May Extend Gains as Fed’s Bernanke Strikes Dovish Tone
  • Crude Oil and Copper Rebound as Risk Trends Digest Friday’s Selloff

Commodities are trading in corrective mode to start the week as markets digest moves seen in the wake of Friday’s dismal US employment report. Sentiment-geared crude oil and copper are on the upswing along with Asian and European share prices. Meanwhile, gold and silver are edging lower having launched sharp recoveries after the soft Nonfarm Payrolls print spurred expectations of continued aggressive Fed stimulus efforts.

S&P 500 index futures are pointing higher ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street, arguing for more of the same ahead. In terms of scheduled event risk, the spotlight from here is on Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, who is due to speak at the Financial Market Conference organized by the central bank’s Atlanta branch. The address itself is likely to play second fiddle to the Q&A session that is to follow. A strongly dovish lean in the wake of the recent run of US data may re-establish support for precious metals although implications for larger risk trends (and thereby oil as well as copper) seem somewhat conflicted.

On the corporate earnings front, cycle-sensitive Alcoa Inc is due to report results. The company’s forward guidance may carry implications for the global growth outlook as overall risk appetite.
