Current thoughts 8/18/16

From the Trading Desk:


Yesterday’s Fed minutes provided some brief excitement in an otherwise dull week of trading action.  The main takeaway from the minutes was that Federal Reserve opinion is deeply divided.  This serves to reconfirm that a September rate hike is highly unlikely.  The primary concerns for the members of the Fed include inflation being below its target of 2%, heightened risk associated with foreign markets and from events such as Brexit, and second quarter domestic job growth slowing down markedly from the first quarter.  At the time of the release, gold and silver immediately sold off by $10 and $.30, respectively, only to recover entirely in a matter of minutes.  Gold is still stuck in a range with $1,360 the level to watch overhead and $1,327.50 – $1,330 (50 day moving average and a double bottom) the clear area of near term support.  Silver continues to find strong bids on any move below $19.50.
