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).

    • GX Uranium ETF (URA) Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Counter trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Emerging Zigzag Position - Red wave (C) of blue 4  Direction - Red wave (C) of blue 4 is still in play Details - Price broke blow 30. Wave (C) was confirmed by the break below 29.26. Should extend toward 25.94. The GX Uranium ETF is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that focuses on investing in companies involved in the uranium industry. Uranium is a key component in nuclear power generation, and its demand is influenced by factors such as global energy needs, environmental concerns, and government policies regarding nuclear power.   Recent market movements have seen the GX Uranium ETF undergo a bearish correction, with a decline exceeding 5% over the current trading week. This downturn commenced on February 1st, 2023, and is anticipated to persist in the short term before encountering a support level, heralding the onset of renewed upward momentum. Notably, this correction unfolds within the broader context of a bullish trend that commenced in March 2022. Despite enduring an over 8-month pullback between November 2021 and July 2022, the ETF has steadily ascended, reaching its loftiest valuation since April 2014. Consequently, post the prevailing retracement, a resumption of the bullish trajectory is anticipated.   Analyzing the daily time frame reveals a discernible bullish impulse of the cycle degree (marked in blue) after the supercycle wave (b). The termination of the 3rd wave - designated as blue wave 3 - occurred in February 2023, characterized by a diagonal pattern, followed by the onset of the corresponding 4th wave. This 4th wave manifests as a zigzag pattern, navigating through wave (C) after completing wave (B) via an expanding diagonal. To maintain the integrity of the overall impulse structure, the 4th wave - delineated as blue wave 4 - must remain above the critical level of 24.36. Expectations converge on buyers eagerly awaiting the conclusion of wave (C) to propel the bullish momentum into the 5th wave. Examining the H4 chart illuminates the sub-waves of (A)-(B)-(C) and the emergence of wave (C). The initial target for wave (C) aligns with the 100% extension of wave (A) at 25.94, slightly above the psychological barrier of 25. Traders are thus advised to anticipate the culmination of wave (C) within the 25.94-25 zone, paving the way for subsequent rallies.   Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
