Hallo zusammen. Wir haben auf dieboersenblogger.de zuletzt immer wieder über den Goldpreis geschrieben. Das Thema ist auch bei den Jungs auf dem Parkett mehr als heiß.
In einem aktuellen Kommentar zum Thema Rohstoffe von Ole S. Hansen aus dem Strategy Team von Saxo Bank geht es ebenfalls um die aktuelle Rohstoffrallye. Den jüngsten Kursausschlag bei Gold wertet Hansen als Signal für eine neue Rallye. Dieser könnte den Goldpreis bis auf 1.300 US-Dollar treiben. Auf Sicht von 5 Jahren sieht Hansen das Kursziel bei 1.500 US-Dollar. Dennoch mahnt Hansen auch zur Gelassenheit: Aufgrund des überkauften Marktes sollten Investoren abwarten, da eine Kurskorrektur auf 1.120 US-Dollar oder sogar bis auf 1.100 US-Dollar möglich sein könnte. Der Auslöser für die Korrektur könnte schon der nächste Feiertag in den USA sein, Thanksgiving am kommenden Donnerstag, der für eine Gewinnmitnahme in Werten von miteinander korrelierenden Positionen wie dem Währungspaar EUR/USD sorgen könnte.
Hier einmal der Original-Kommentar der Saxo Bank: Gold shines despite signs of risk fatigue
Currency and stock market movements combined with a massive flow of investment into commodities continue to set the overall tone of commodity markets.
Last week was the last full trading week ahead of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday this week. This normally signals the beginning of the winding down for year end. After that time many traders and funds begin to focus on year end and on how they should be positioned into the normally quiet month of December.
Some risk fatigue began to emerge towards the end of the week with energy and base metals giving up some of their recent gains. Whether it is that or just early position squaring time will tell.
The wall of money floating around in the financial system continues to benefit commodities as a way of diversifying portfolios and in order to shield investments from a non-negligible risk of a US debt and currency crisis. A research note from a major bank sees flows into commodities this year of USD 60 billion which will bring the total amount invested up towards USD 240 billion at year end.
Most precious metals and some base metals made new highs for the year and the Baltic Dry bulk index, which indicates the cost of shipping dry bulk commodities around the globe, rallied sharply. Gold still catches most of the headlines as it despite moving into a very overbought situation continues to make new highs reaching USD 1.150, a 12.3% rally since the news about India buying IMF gold broke some weeks ago.
We see the break above the 2008 high as a signal that a new rally has been initiated which could take the price of gold towards an initial target of USD 1.300 followed by a potential 5 year target of USD 1.500. Gold still has a long way to go – both in terms of price appreciation and in terms of years of increases. It will at times be volatile, experiencing quarterly declines, but the overall direction will be higher
Near term however gold has moved into an extreme overbought situation which has not been seen for many years and we urge new investors to be patient as a correction back towards USD 1,120 and maybe even USD 1,100 is increasingly likely. The trigger for a correction could be the upcoming U.S. holiday next week as positions in correlated markets like the EURUSD could run into profit taking and thereby remove some of the recent support.
The energy sector continues to be driven by present reality versus future expectations as the overall demand situation still remains weak. Good demand from emerging economies continues to be off-set by continued weak demand from the developed economies.
On this basis the overall investor appetite for commodities is still the main driver of energy prices as investors seeks shelter and a hedge from the falling dollar. This tuck of war has kept Crude Oil range bound over the last month with USD 75 to 80 being the current range.
The global economic pick up over the last few quarters is still happening on the back of continued job losses and that leaves a big question about when and by how much consumption will pick up. For now though the worries about dollar weakness and future inflation should be enough to keep the prices supported over the coming weeks and months.
Technically the front month Crude of January is currently stuck in a bullish flag pattern between USD 75 to 80 range and just the last few days some risk adversity has been seen on the back of a stronger dollar. A greater bullish potential remains as long prices stay above USD 75, otherwise there is a risk of returning to the recent USD 65 to 75 trading range. Some position squaring ahead of the US holiday next week will probably be the main focus into the early part of this week.
