Precious metals on the rise as BoE holds off

Last week was supposed to mark the beginning of the tightening phase from monetary policy on both sides of the Atlantic, but the hesitancy shown by the Bank of England (BoE) has instead allowed traders to ease off on the idea of monetary tightening for now.

While the Federal Reserve (Fed) may have implemented a tapering policy, it is clear that this is very different from actual monetary tightening under a policy of rate hikes.

Looking at the relationship between the US 10-year treasury yield and the Fed Funds rate, we can see that yields often rise when the Fed starts raising rates. The shaded boxes highlight those counter-trend gains for yields at times of monetary tightening.

With that in mind, there is a good chance the BoE hesitation helps push that extended move higher into 2022.

By inverting the US 10-year yield, we can see the inverse correlation between precious metals and treasury yields.

\While much of the July 2020 to March 2021 period saw yields increase to the detriment of precious metals, we are seeing that ease off here.

The delay in monetary tightening from the likes of the BoE and Fed could bring about a reversal of that rise in yields, meaning we could see some favour for precious metals.

Looking at the silver chart, we can see how price has been rebounding from the $21.65 support level since late-September.

The current push is taking price back towards the $24.87 level, which if broken would seemingly pave the way for another period of strength here. Such a rally would likely take the form of either a retracement into the $26.18-27.16 zone, or a move back up into the range top of $28.75-29.86.

For gold, we are also rising into a key near-term resistance level, with the $1834 level the highest in almost five months. The past four occasions have seen gold falter at this level, but a break through here could bring about a fresh bullish outlook for the weeks ahead.

Set within the wider uptrend, there is a chance we could see a strong move higher if price breaks the likes of $1834 (and ultimately $1916).

    • Traditional banking systems served as the gatekeepers of financial services for long, dictating how people access loans, save, and invest in opportunities. Typically controlled by a centralized system with a single authority such as a bank or government in total charge, this centralization is limited by high fees, restricted accessibility and slow transaction speed. Dentralized finance, DeFi, got introduced as a blockchain-based financial system that removes intermediaries or central authorities, and utilizes smart contracts instead. By eliminating intermediaries, DeFi delivers core benefits like improved accessibility into the financial system for everyone having internet connection regardless of their location. DeFi is also valued for its transparency. While traditional banking system often deny customers audits on how their assets are being managed, DeFi, through the help of blockchain allows anyone access to tracking and auditing transactions, thereby raising trust. Furthermore, DeFi also offers various financial services and products like DEX, lending and borrowing, stablecoins etc, all known to proffer varied innovative solutions, while operating 24/7 in contrast to traditional finance. DeFi isn’t flawless as issues like insecurity, lack of consumer protection etc are still prevalent; however, the growth of DeFi has been impressive; since its introduction, the total value locked in DeFi protocols has grown significantly indicating that the demand for DeFi services is fast growing. DeFi seems to be redefining financial industry by offering an alternative to traditional banking systems. With the increasing adoption, can we expect to see an overhaul in the way we access financial services?        
    • Leverage is good but please use it according to your risk management system coz the higher the leverage the higher the risk, I trade my perpetual futures on Bitget tho, the exchange offers high leverage but I only use according to my risk management system.
    • Yeah, BGB is designed to create a simple, secure, and accessible crypto ecosystem. It offers exclusive benefits to holders so I believe it worth holding from my analysis.
