Investments are shifting from Gold & Silver to Treasuries !



In many of my early postings I repeatedly told that whenever tension arises in market, investments are shifting towards so called safe heavens. Precious metals also qualify for these safe heaven, then it is quite difficult to understand why these are not performing during last few weeks, considering the fact that Gold was in little over-bought zone ?
Now if we look on to Treasuries during last few weeks then we can see that it performed quite well, as we know that their Yields are dropping much during this time. Now this question must come that whether investments are shifting from Gold & Silver to Treasuries ?

May be !  Because if we think about US dollar here then we know, that during some weeks dollar is going against the trend it followed during this year. So there we may have some answer.  But what about Gold and Silver ?

In my weekly review, in few days ago I told that some more corrections are due in both Gold and Silver, as it look like in the charts. So that means, will they come into those levels, where they were in the beginning of the year 2011 ?  I don’t know for sure. But it is sure that some corrections are due, also considering the recent relation between US dollar and Treasuries. Then how long these movements in Treasuries will go ! 


Here one question comes in my mind that whether Treasury markets were discounting QE-3 !  Now if we forget that and think only about US dollar then it is sure that, this movement in USD is not for long, at least where the aim of the authorities is to keep Dollar low.

DAX forecast for coming week ended 15th March, 2013.

This week was very good for Dax, though it is getting resistance at 8100 range. Now it has a chance to test downside again. I think even if Dax tests lower levels, it has more chance to bounce back from around 7800 range and therefore it will again test upside.

On the other hand if it shows flat movements around 8000 range in initial days of the coming week then there is a chance that it may take a decisive call in later days. Considering the recent trends it has the chance to test higher levels may be around 8200 but that will be a very aggressive call after taking in to account the movement from last December. I will worry about the downside when Dax will be testing levels below 7600 ranges.

Fed’s rate hike Vs Sovereign rating up gradation

Financial market is very much worried about the rate hike in US, probably this is going to come in coming December. But I think that is not going to change much of the things. Even Fed hikes rate in December it will be not so much, because we are forgetting one thing that interest rate in US is around zero so even they hike rate by 0.25-50% basis points (at most) in this year that will not be enough cause for Dollars to change their locations around the world especially markets have already discounted this coming rate hike in US.

A new disaster is coming in EU banking sector, whom to blame, big Audit firms!

First I was thinking what should be the title of this posting? Will it be good if I write that big audit firms set the time for EU bank collapse! If someone is thinking that financial crisis is over then think twice because the coming EU banking crisis is no way less than 2008 financial crisis. The time bomb will explode at some point of time in future, the time has not yet set for it. In that tsunami, forget about the smaller if any major banks collapse then I will not be surprise.
