    Gold's M&A wave to keep rolling as bullion tumbles

    Gold’s tumble to the lowest since 2010 promises to prolong a mergers and acquisitions boom that’s seen transactions at a three-year high as weaker prices slash asset valuations. Deals valued at $9.6 billion were proposed or completed in the six months to June 30, up 7% on the previous half, as producers including OceanaGold agreed acquisitions. They totalled $22.3 billion last year, the highest since 2011. Prices will drop to $984 before January, according to the average estimate in a Bloomberg News survey of 16 analysts and traders. Bullion capped a sixth weekly decline on Friday and declined to a low of $1,077.40/oz on July 24.

    thanks for your valuable insight, but please omit the "annualised" returns; they are distracting and irrelevant.

    The Big Picture Part 1: Preparing for the hike and more global QE
    The Federal Reserve's expected September rate rise is only seven weeks away and the market is not ready. At this time, I believe there are five main themes emerging. This article is the first of a three-part Big Picture series where I discuss all five themes. In today's piece I look at the first two themes – the coming rate hike, and where I feel quantitative easing sits with the rest of the world. Part 2 follows on Wednesday and Part 3 on Friday.

    Weekly Trading Forecasts on Major Pairs (August 3 - 7, 2015)

    Dominant bias: Neutral
    This pair experienced a great deal of volatility last week. Price went up on Monday, and then dropped seriously from Tuesday to Thursday. On Friday, price spiked upwards and immediately following that, got corrected to the downside. The high volatility and short-term swings in the market have cancelled any directional bias on the market, not because of any equilibrium conditions, but because neither bulls nor bears are able to dominate protractedly in spite of the fact that momentum is currently high. This pair would be characterized by high momentum this month, and it would be difficult for it to rally protractedly as long as USD is strong.

    Dominant bias: Bullish
    Despite the fact that bearish attempts caused the support levels at 0.9550 to be tested a few times last week, USDCHF was able to maintain its bullishness.
