Current expectations for September, 2010

Expectations in short for September -
Dollar - down
Gold - down
Stock markets - up

Today the FED again has reassured the markets it will continue its monetary policy of easy money in order to stimulate consumer spending and get US out of the trap. This alone will give enough  strength of the Euro to continue its advance as there will be expectations of increasing the amount of available Dollars on the market. The weaker Dollar will give more competitive strength to US companies and further improve their financial results. As a secondary effect the Crude oil value could increase.

On the other hand such stimulus money (or any other type of government support) would give markets the long awaited trigger to start trading positive expectations again.

As markets turn positive using Gold as a hedging vehicle would become less popular. Having a big enough drop in demand of Gold would pretty much turn the tide. A considerable drop in Gold price would scare most of the last crowd that entered the Gold market in hope to make some quick profits which would increase the selling pressure further.

All these are an expression of an analytic point of view. Will wait for the end of September to compare with the real data.
