Gold prices ended the U.S. day session modestly higher Thursday, boosted by the announcement from the Bank of England that it is easing its monetary policy for the first time since 2009. Traders and investors are now awaiting Friday morning’s July U.S. employment report from the Labor Department. The key non-farm payrolls number is expected to show 180,000 jobs were created last month, explains Gary Wagner of the popular website, thegoldforecast.com. He noted that tomorrow's number will be key for the metal. Wagner is sticking to his previous gold call of $1,450 an ounce. Gold rose even as the dollar climbed, which tends to be negative for commodities priced in the currency. A stronger dollar tends to diminish the appeal of assets priced in dollar terms.

Despite gold’s pullback, settling the day at $1,335.30 an ounce, veteran technical analyst Gary Wagner say he remains bullish. So much so, gold may rally to $1,445 over the next three months, he told Kitco News Tuesday after the close. Gold prices are struggling amid rallying equities and crude oil prices. Is oil stealing gold’s thunder? “We’ve seen fireworks in gold,” he said. “My sense with oil is that we could see sparks but we are not going to get the kind of fireworks we’ve been getting with gold and silver.”

The 800,000-pound Godzilla in the room at the moment is the fear of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike, says long-time technical analyst Gary Wagner. ‘As of Friday, interest-rate futures were pricing in a 30% probability of an increase at the June 14-15 meeting, up from 5% several days earlier, according to the CME’s FedWatch Tool,’ explains Wagner, the editor of the popular newsletter, thegoldforecast.com. Traders are desperately seeking some clarity in regards to the Fed's next move, trying to determine gold's direction, he told Kitco News. ‘[T]he lack of fiscal policy by the U.S. Congress forces investors to rely far too heavily on monetary policy as a barometer. That is very wrong,’ Wagner warns. On Tuesday, gold futures hit a 4-week low as the dollar index hit a seven-week high...

With gold prices posting solid gains on Monday, long-time technical analyst Gary Wagner, says the metal has found its floor.

“When gold touched the levels of $1,040 -$1,045 an ounce earlier this year, those turned out to be the bottom and I think that will be the bottom,” the founder and editor of the thegoldforecast.com said in an interview with Kitco News.

Both gold and silver hit nearly three-week highs on Monday. June Comex gold settled the day 1% higher at $1,258 an ounce while May Comex silver settled at $15.976 an ounce, up nearly 4% on the day.

The metals rallied as the U.S. dollar index dropped to an eight-month low following the perceived dovish rhetoric coming from U.S. Federal Reserve officials. Wagner added that major support for the yellow metal comes...

Gold prices ended the U.S. day session solidly higher and hit a 3.5-month high Thursday. ‘The falling dollar is intriguing for the gold trade we are in, the price of crude, and for future potential upward movement of equities pricing,’ said Gary Wagner, editor of the popular newsletter, thegolddorecast.com. Silver prices also scored a 3.5-month high Thursday. Safe-haven and technical buying continue to support the yellow metal amid volatile world stock markets that presently still have a downside bias. April Comex gold was last up $15.30 at $1,156.60 an ounce. March Comex silver was last up $0.126 at $14.86 an ounce. ‘The modest rise in the yield of 10-year U.S. Treasuries would suggest that not all safe havens are created equal. Gold and silver seem to be exerting a strong...
