Gold Unleashed – Rip Your Face Off Rally Is Here

S&P 500 had another day in the red, and buy the dippers might be tempted to say enough is enough – but I am not convinced yet. The selling doesn‘t appear as over yet, and the premarket upswing stopped right below my tweeted target of 4,133, overcoming which would have flipped the entry into the U.S. session as bullish.

More of the same is expected for today – the bulls would need to demonstrate strength, which I am afraid won‘t convincingly happen right now. The VIX and options traders sense the shifting sands too. We‘re in the correction territory quite firmly now, and it isn‘t over by a long shot.

Nominal yields have retreated a little, reflecting the daily downswing in inflation expectations – but the overall dynamics hasn‘t changed as Treasuries keep frontrunning the TIP:TLT. As for liquidity, it‘s still obscuring rotations to a degree, but it must be said that pressure was felt almost fully across the S&P 500 board. That‘s risk-off – a much-needed whiff thereof.

Gold defied the daily selling stretching over to commodities such as oil. Gold and miners defied also the daily weakness in silver which I rightly found little concerning. The decoupling from the Treasury yields pressure goes on and is further relieved by Treasuries catching a bid again.

The dollar staged a daily reversal, but for how long would that last? The other indicative engine behind the precious metals growth, the USD/JPY pair, is tilting solidly in the direction of the yen carry trade suffering a setback, which means unwinding quite a few „no brainer“ trades, including those short precious metals. Remember, when yen as the safe-haven currency strengthens, gold usually likes that.

Such is the amply clear big picture:

(…) Now, it‘s up to gold and silver to catch up on what they missed since the early Aug 2020. Inflation is running hotter, and the Fed is tolerant of it, amply supplying liquidity. The gold bottom is in, and much brighter days ahead.
