Gold, Silver and Platinum in Q4

The quarterly chart below is truly against metal-bulls. It is outlining the quarterly development for Precious Metals (Gold, Silver and Platinum). The graph is equally weighted among the three, and each bar is showing an entire quarter of trading activity.


According to the chart, there is a clear lower low and a lower high recognized on a quarterly scale. This pattern is signalling weakness rather than strength towards the latter stage of 2022. In order to change the current downward pressure, prices should collectively soar more than + 11.5% from September closes. That would challenge last quarter highs.


Precious Metals into September

The chart below is outlining the monthly development for Precious Metals. Gold, Sliver and Platinum are equally weighted and each bar is showing one month of trading activity.

According to the chart, there is now an inside bar on a monthly scale. There is a lower high and a higher low signalling some sort of pause to the last months weakness. Going into the fall, an upcoming stronger move is to be expected from a technical perspective.

From July's close to the top of the latest bar there is + 9.7%. Until metals is trading above this level, the downtrend is continuing for the longer term.

Soft commodities into autumn 2022

Let us see if Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa collectively make it back up into the autumn this year.

The weekly chart above consists of Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa and is made to have them equally weighted.

The last July's have seen these soft commodities finding support to prices throughout the month of July. Only time will show if this is the case in 2022 as well, in an otherwise strong inflationary environment.


Metals into July 2022

This graph below is showing Gold, Silver and Platinum prices equally weighted on a monthly scale. Each bar counting one month of trading activity.

June consolidated (sideways to lower) after May weakness, creating an outside Red bar making upcoming direction unclear for now. Trading above (or below) June highs (low) will trigger further direction for precious metals.


Soft commodities week 25

Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa are here defined as Soft Commodities. The graph below is showing all 3 commodities equally weighted on weekly basis, were each bar is counting as one tradingweek.

Collectively Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa are trading as much as - 6.7% from their February closes. In other words in USD terms, today you get ahold of more Soft Commodities for the very same USD amount compared to what you did back in February. 

Inflation is defined as the decline of purchasing power of a given currency over time. Prices of Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa combined are still at their November 2021-levels. According to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the annual inflation rate in May was 8.6%, its highest level since 1981. In conclusion, Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa are certainly not contributing to this inflation equation. At least not yet.



Gold or Silver week 25

The Gold Silver Ratio is marginally higher after week 24, making a higher low and a higher high.

According to the weekly chart above, Gold is holding up better than Silver on a weekly scale going into week 25. Gold is clearly outperforming Silver as long as the bars are Blue (marked by their higher lows). Seeing the ratio fall below USD 83 again, could quickly turn biased on Silver.

Stockmarkets in June

Here is the monthly chart combining the DAX and the Nasdaq100 indices.

There are now 5 months of lower highs on a monthly scale. YTD, the two indices are collectively - 16%.

The latest May bar is Red and still indicating weakness. As long as there is a lower low and a lower high on a monthly scale, weakness is prevailing for the longer term. From June 1st close, there is more than + 4% to the latest bar top. Only getting above this point could revalue current bearish stand.

Ether or Bitcoin in June

The chart below is continuing the chart from April 1st: Ethereum ( - 30.4% in May) over Bitcoin ( - 17.2% in May) or the price of Ethereum divided by the price of Bitcoin.

The monthly overview is again showing a downward pressure to this chart. The lower low and lower high for the latest bar is weakness for Ethereum vs Bitcoin. As long as prices are trending lower, Bitcoin is outperforming Ethereum. That is not to say both could fall, and Bitcoin is falling less- or hold up better than Ethereum.

Metals into June 2022

There is weakness in the metals space on a monthly scale. This is following the seasonality patterns for now. The chart below is consisting of Gold, Silver and Platinum equally weighted.

As markets are soon entering the summer, the monthly chart is showing a new lower low with a lower high. According to the chart above, Metals as a whole must soar + 7.5% or more from June entry, in order to potentially change the current weak picture. 


As this weekly chart is pointing out, Gold is stronger than Silver on a weekly scale.

The latest Blue bar is making a higher high and a higher low indicating more support to Gold prices than of the Silver prices.

As long as this graph is showing higher prices, Gold is performing stronger relative to Silver.
