At this point, investors are looking forward to corporate quarterly reports in order to estimate the near future of the US economy.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Japan’s balance of payments report came as a surprise, thus showing a decent surplus. The GDP forecast for Q1 2012 is +1.7% (y/y). Analysts expect the Bank of Japan to abstain for extra stimuli during the current meeting, which is to end tomorrow. However, it is said that during the next meeting scheduled for April 27th the central bank will be forced to announce new measures.
 
China’s PPI came out worse than expected, thus confirming the economic slowdown. The inflation and consumer prices reports exceeded the forecast considerably. The growing consumer inflation may prevent the People’s bank of china from proceeding to further economic stimulation.

According to the Commodity Trading Department of Masterforex-V Academy, today gold will probably continue its downtrend down to 1630, and maybe 1625-1620. On breaking below the level, the price gets a chance to reach 1600. However, if the support stays unbroken, the price may rebound and test 1650. In order to resume the rally, the price will have to break and consolidate below 1646. The closest targets of the bullish scenario are 1665, 1675.
 
As for silver, the price broke below 31.75, which suggests that it is ready to resume the downswing. A re-consolidation below the level will confirm the intension. The targets of the bearish scenario are 31.50, 31.25, 31-30.90. If silver fails to consolidate below 31.75, there is high probability that of a rally up to 32.0. The rally will be resumed only if the price consolidates above 32.0. In this case, the price may reach 32.25-32.50.

Why Doesn’t OPEC Fight Low Oil Prices?

One of the most burning problems of the contemporary society is the ultra low price of crude oil worldwide. Still, it is surprising to see that the OPEC, which is a union of some of the world’s major producers and exporters of crude oil, is still reluctant to start cutting down on their oil production. If you have been in financial markets for a while, you probably know that amid declining global demand for crude oil (mainly triggered by the economic slowdown in China - the world’s second biggest economy and the biggest consumer of crude oil), the steady and high level of oil production leads to oversupply at all times. Apparently, oversupply triggers a price collapse. The bigger it is, the harder the prices fall eventually. This is the case in the global market of crude oil right now. The prices have already fallen by more than 50% since its local highs set in mid 2014.
