Gold Consolidates As The Fed Loses Control Stewart Thomson

Please click here now . The Fed just cut interest rates again. It also cut the rate it pays banks on their excess reserves.
What does this mean for gold? Well, the 30basis point cut on excess reserves is bigger than the 25basis point cut on the fed funds rate. That could incentivize banks to loan money to the private sector rather than store it at the Fed.
Institutional money managers wanted to see a half point cut. That didn’t happen but Jay Powell did talk about potentially restarting QE.
The bottom line is that current Fed action is mildly inflationary and generally supportive for gold.

Unless gold closes under $1490, the most likely move from here is a test of the $1566 area highs.

More money printing may be required to regain control. That’s negative for the dollar and the stock market. It’s positive for gold and the yen.

Tactics? I suggest buying in the $26-$27 area and selling at $30-$31, while awaiting a major breakout above $31 on the weekly chart.

Gold, silver, and the miners are in a mild and expected pause at weekly chart resistance zones. My www.guswinger.com swing trade service for NUGT and DUST is a great way to play the range trade action, while awaiting the weekly chart breakout.
Gold is solidly supported by mid-East geopolitical action, dovish central bank action, a peaking US business cycle, and governments that can’t shake their addictions to spending and debt. For precious metals investors, good times are here, and great times are near!
