Gold edges higher

The price has moved slightly higher this morning, halting the run to the downside for now. A close above $1930 would still be needed to suggest that the buyers have managed to wrest some control back from sellers.

The zone around $1900 may continue to provide support, but a close below the 200-day SMA would certainly contribute to the negative medium-term view.

WTI bulls refuse to go quietly

While the price remains off last week’s highs, the buyers are not giving up easily. Friday’s session ended in indecisive fashion, and already buyers have come in at the lows on Monday morning.

A close below $81 might signal some additional near-term weakness is developing. Buyers will want a close back above $84 to suggest that a new leg higher has begun.

Silver downside stalled for now

Like gold, silver has suffered a severe rebuff since mid-July. For the moment, buyers have defended the area just above $22.50, and this might yet result in a low being created. A close back above the 200-day SMA might reinforce the bullish view, and potentially open the way to the highs above $25.

Sellers will want a close back below $22.50 to resume the downward move, and this would then open the way to the late June lows at $22.20.

    • Mathews Darcy mentioned that the quarterly production report released by BHP Group recently showed strong performance in copper and iron ore businesses, but adverse weather conditions affected coal production. Despite the upward trends in copper and iron ore prices, the market response to the stock price of BHP was relatively subdued. This article will delve into the analysis of the quarterly report of BHP Group and discuss its impact on the stock market and the reactions of investors. Quarterly Performance and Market Response Mathews Darcy pointed out that despite price increases in copper and iron ore on Wednesday, the stock price of BHP only saw a slight growth after the quarterly report release, reflecting the tepid response of investors to the report. Particularly noteworthy is the decline in the stock price of BHP amidst significant overnight increases in copper and nickel prices and iron ore prices maintaining a six-week high. Additionally, Mathews Darcy noted that major brokerage firms have begun adjusting their ratings and price targets for BHP based on the latest quarterly data. Several brokerage reports indicate that despite strong demand for copper and iron ore, the overall performance of BHP did not meet market expectations, possibly due to production constraints in its coal division. Investment Strategies and Future Outlook Mathews Darcy advised that when considering BHP stock, investors should carefully analyze the performance of its various divisions and future market prospects. While price fluctuations in mineral resources offer profit opportunities for BHP, investors should also be aware of the potential impact of price fluctuations on company performance. Furthermore, paying attention to brokerage research reports and rating updates will help investors better understand market dynamics and potential investment risks. Mathews Darcy also emphasized the importance of diversified investments, especially in an industry facing price volatility and geopolitical risks. Diversifying investments among different resource stocks can effectively reduce the impact of single market fluctuations on the investment portfolio.
