Gold May Rise as Dovish Fed-Speak Weighs on US Dollar

Gold May Rise as Dovish Fed-Speak Weighs on US Dollar

Gold prices may rise if dovish commentary from Boston Fed President Rosengren dents expectations of QE3 reduction and weighs on the US Dollar.

Talking Points

  • Crude Oil and Copper Outlook Clouded as Risk Trends Consider Fed QE Outlook
  • Gold, Silver May Rise if Fed’s Rosengren Pours Cold Water on QE3 Reduction Bets

Cycle-sensitive crude oil and copper prices are under pressure as risk aversion sweeps financial markets ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street. S&P 500 futures are trading firmly lower, hinting more of the same is likely ahead. Gold and silver are treading water in familiar ranges.

Looking ahead, the spotlight is on a speech from the Federal Reserve’s Eric Rosengren, who is scheduled to discuss the outlook for the US economy and take questions. Mr. Rosengren is a voting member of the rate-setting FOMC committee this year and traders will no doubt be keen to get his take on the probability of a cut-back in Fed asset purchases over the near term.

Given the Boston Fed President’s dovish credentials, there seems to be distinct possibility that his comments may pour cold water on calls QE3 reduction bets and weigh on the US Dollar. That has scope to boost gold and silveramid a pickup in anti-fiat demand. The impact of speculation about the timing of a decrease in Fed stimulus on risk trends remains uneven however, making for an uncertain outlook on oil and copper vis-à-vis Mr. Rosengren’s rhetoric.

Crude Oil Technical Analysis (WTI)- Prices bounce from support at 93.34, the May 10 low. Near-term resistance is at 96.85 a falling trend line set from mid-September 2012. A bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern and negative RSI divergence argue in favor of a downside scenario however. A move below 93.34 initially exposes the May 15 bottom at 93.11.
