Gold Could Correct after Drop – Euro to test new Lows – May 16

May 16, 2013

Despite fall in producer price index to 3-year low that eases inflation pressure market did not react, although fall provides more monetary easing space. Another reading, Empire State Manufacturing survey fell, but this did not have larger impact because its depicts survey of one particular region New York. Better home builders data may have been neutralized the negative impact. In broader sense, so far performance of US economy is quite satisfactory.
Lesser impact could be due to two factors because overall major economic data’s reflect better economic condition in USA. Elsewhere news from other economic front is not very encouraging. Earlier release of European quarterly report once again confirmed economic disappointment in the region. After poor economic performance by Germany the virus has now spilled over to France. Since both the country are top two economies of region this is a worrisome factor and hence, market surely has more confidence in US economy.
However, today’s release of US housing start will tell us more about how many new single homes have been constructed. More important is US initial jobless claims data will tell about first time claims and Plilly data that will indicate about activity in manufacturing sector should provide better picture and unless data enters the negative territory the mood of market will remain Bullish.
While, Mervin King showed some sort of confidence in UK economy and expecting it to perform a notch better and thinks that inflation condition has improved and could be heading for its 2 pct target in next 2 years time. I will give him some space for his courageous talk because this was his last quarterly presentation.  
Bottom line is that Dovish ECB stance is one big factor that is not helping Euro to recover and weaker Euro-zones outlook is helping US Dollar to gain strength.

GMT 3:11 – GBP @ 1.5224 = Needs to make a clear break of 1.5260-80 zones for 1.5325 Or else pressure on GBP could see fall extending towards 1.5130-40 zones on break of 1.5170.
GMT 3:16 – JPY @ 102.23 = Yen weakness will continue and seller will look for opportunity until 101.60-70 resistance holds, but Yen becomes heavy around 102.80-90 zones. 
GMT 3:21 – AUD @ 0.9884 = Pressure to continue on Aussie and unlikely to move beyond 0.9960, as top around 0.9920. Break of 0.9830 risks for 0.9785
GMT 3:24 – GOLD @ $ 1395.50 = The fall could extend up to around $ 1384 zones, but risk for correction will increase for $ 1405-10 zones. However, break of $ 1378 will encourage for $ 1372.
GMT 3:06 – 1.2872 =   I am expecting support 1.2820-30 to hold until mid-day and unless Euro moves beyond 1.2920. Euro should remain under pressure. Only break of support level will risk for 1.2775. While upside break of resistance will encourage for a test of 1.2975.
