With the Fed meeting tomorrow, and gold down to almost $1,300, I think we are about a day from a bottom and a higher price in gold on its way with gold heading back up to $1,370 finally. From there we’ll decide what’s next, but the dollar has been weak overall and it seems the Fed likes it that way. Anytime the markets get weak, the dollar mysteriously gets weaker and the market rebounds. Like clockwork.
Silver is about ready for a bottom as well.
Here’s what I see for tomorrow’s first Fed meeting under the help of Powell.
1. Everyone knows the Fed will raise rates.
2. Everyone is looking to the language.
3. No matter what Powell said in his testimony about a stronger dollar, this is clearly not Fed policy. They need a weaker dollar to stir up inflation. Mnunchin would agree.I don’t think Kudlow plays into this.
4. A weaker dollar has also been the tactic to stop any runs lower in the markets.
5. Markets seem to want to move higher with each dollar move lower, so if the Fed says anything about a weaker dollar, or that’s what occurs post Fed, the market will move higher and take gold with it.
