Equities and oil also fell hard yesterday whilst the dollar rallied - price action that is clearly signalling deflation. This is most likely linked to the liquidity crisis in China, therefore a resolution to this problem will see stocks resume their uptrend.
However, we do not see the same outlook for gold over the next few months, as rising interest rates, low inflation and a perceived US economic recovery are all contributing to massive ETF withdrawals and a strong downtrend in gold.
We are now in the weakest part of the year for gold historically - it is unlikely that we will see a strong rally develop during the "summer doldrums" and a continuation of the downtrend is the most likely scenario until August at least.
