The data on China’s external trade for December 2011 showed a major import/export decline as compared with the forecast. China’s foreign trade turnover in 2011 hit the all-time record of $3.6 trillion. However, the balance-of-trade surplus declined down to 3-year low ($115B).
 
The Federal Reserve is planning to arrange a press conference. Investors will be looking for hints at the Fed Reserve’s further economic stimuli. In November 2011 the US consumer lending hit the record level (+$20.37B).

This week Spain and Italy are expected to hold their own bond auctions as investors will be focused on the bond yield. These auctions can influence France’s credit rating as French banks are major holders of these bonds. Today Angela Merkel will meet with the IMF President.
According to Goldman Sachs, the current macroeconomic situation around the world suggests an increase in gold prices up to $1940/oz by late 2012. Asia keeps seeing steady demand for physical gold.

It is currently above 1617-1617.5. However, the price still may test 1610. The closest targets are 1627, 1630, then 1640-1641, and maybe even 1668.
 
As for silver, in order to resume its rally, the price needs to consolidate above 29.30 in order to reach 29.50 and 29.75. A break above December’s high will give way to 30. A failed test will initiate a downswing to 28.9-29, and maybe even 28.7.

Oil Market: Moscow Loses Interest to OPEC

Price of oil is rising again, but this is not enough for producer countries. Quotation of 50 dollars per barrel is “not the best possible variant”.

Less than two months ago the Russian leader was doing everything possible to bring Iran and Saudi Arabia to agreement; he was an intermediary between two rivals , which divide raw material market and the Middle East, and tried to convince them to freeze fuel production in order to stimulate rise price. Today, when the value of petroleum has risen from the minimal point to almost 50 dollars per barrel, the Russian Federation prefers waiting. “Oil price has gone up, which makes the question of freezing oil production lose its topicality,” said Aleksander Novak, Energy Minister of the RF.
