    Gold resilient despite strong dollar, rate hike odds
    Gold is heading for its first monthly decline since May after falling victim to a stronger dollar on renewed speculation that the next US rate hike could be seen as soon as September. Sideways trading has been seen following the post-Brexit spike in June, but once again a key technical area of support is being tested.

    Gold remains stuck in no man's land ahead of Jackson Hole

    Head of Commodity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    Since the post-Brexit surge gold has increasingly found it difficult to make any decisive move in either direction. During this time, the price of gold has been averaging $1,340/oz, a level that has been touched in 12 out of the last 14 trading days. While the underlying fundamental drivers remain some warning lights have started to flash.

    Gold's 'Brexit premium' deflated ahead of vote
    Gold, which rallied 10% during the early part of June, has since last Thursday given back almost half of these gains. An exodus of "smart money" positions from hedge funds have more than offset continued demand from ETP investors. Once the dust settles, gold will continue to find support from a dovish FOMC and negative bond yields.

    The yen run ending in tears is a prophecy come true

    The yen run ending in tears is a prophecy come true
    Over a year ago I warned that the Japanese yen's weakening would end in tears. The tears started flowing last January, when the Bank of Japan surprised and lowered rates into negative territory. It was surprising, but probably a trend reversal. Today USDJPY is at an important juncture. Will the JPY's strengthening continue from here, or is something else afoot?

    Gold the comeback kid just had one of its best months ever

    Gold the comeback kid just had one of its best months ever
    Gold has undoubtedly been the comeback kid of 2016, and February was one of its best months on record. The change has been dramatic, as just two short months ago money managers were scrambling to boost their short exposure to gold as expectations of US rate hikes made the precious metal unattractive to hold. Now it's the best performing commodity.

    US ETF options cover broad range of funds
    Investors have found exchange-traded funds to be a good way to diversify risk, track underlying indices or stock portfolios at low cost. But investors tend to be less familiar with the wide variety of options on such funds. About 40% of US ETFs have options traded on them, delivering considerable positioning opportunities for the broad market or specific sectors. An option on an ETF also gives investors added possibilities, such as protection, and income generation.
