Draghi Set to Unleash SMP Program Whilst Gold and Markets Await Fed

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2012 Jul 31, 2012 - 07:35 AM GMT

Cross Currency Table – (Bloomberg)

Gold is flat on Tuesday ahead of the US Federal Reserve's policy meeting later today where investors hope to receive some hints on the bank’s position on quantitative easing. Many analysts are not expecting large policy moves.

The US Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City has its Jackson Hole Economic Symposium scheduled at the end of August, which will be significant for determining policy expectations ahead of the September 13th FOMC meeting. Attendees include prominent central bankers, finance ministers, academics, and financial market participants from around the world.

The European Central Bank has its policy meeting this Thursday, and because of Mario Draghi’s comments last week, some action is expected. Draghi is set to come out with a plan that involves employing the SMP (securities market program) bond-buying program coupled with EFSF/ESM purchases of Spanish and Italian bonds on primary markets. The main plan, was also confirmed by Eurogroup president Jean-Claude Juncker according to Spanish daily El Pais.

Gold Prices/Rates/Fixes /Volumes – (Bloomberg)

Today UBS analyst, Edel Tully, increased her short term gold bullion price targets. One month target $1,550 increases to $1,700 and three month target from $1,600 to $1,750. Factors for the increase include hints of action from Fed post the August Economic symposium, the next 3 months are historically the strongest for gold over the last 36 years and finally a boost from the ECB policy statement could lift the price as recently gold has been tracking the euro.

Spot silver surged to $28.28, its highest in nearly 4 weeks, before easing to $28.12. Spot palladium hit $590.75, also its highest price since the 5th of July.

In Greece, politicians in their ruling coalition are not able to reach agreement over the austerity plan and they will seek an extension of the bailout hoping to spread the cuts over a longer period. Troika officials signalled this is not acceptable. Therefore officials from the troika (European Commission, the International Monetary Fund, and the European Central Bank will stay on later than expected until a deal is finalized.

In a piece from the daily Gartman Letter, editor Dennis Gartman says, The Fed “must act at this meeting or it cannot act at all.” He mentions that this week is basically it before the looming November election in the US.

The Wall Street Journal quoted the following from Gartman’s Letter: We fear that no matter what the Fed does at the next two-day meeting its effect will be non-existent upon the economy. That is, even aggressive easing…and we do not think that likely…share have the most marginal of effects excepts perhaps upon equities prices, but we do fear that doing nothing at all shall have a detrimental effect. Thus, the Fed likely shall err upon further monetary stimulus and shall comment openly upon that fact, but it knows in its heart-of-monetary hearts that very little shall come of it.

In an uncertain world where central banks are grasping with a massive global economic contraction the value of money is in question. Quantitative easing is having less and less effect, soon inflation will take hold and when it undermines the real economy and alters consumer behaviour the only solution will be a rapid rise in interest rates.

Gold has shown time and time again that it is an essential element in an investor’s arsenal. The men in dark suits and their spin doctors will, no doubt, conjure up a series of statements exuding their confidence in the system, reasserting that their unorthodox monetary policies will deliver. The market grows weary, banks are consolidating back to their home countries, and credit is again being tightened.

Until a new order in global monetary policy is agreed upon, say a Bretton Woods II, we will continue to treat the symptoms of this imbalanced global trade model and not its causes. Gold remains a solid and independent hedge against the devaluation of fiat (paper) money and its effects.
