Yes the yield curve is shifting the the left for 2/3+ UK and US bonds which would imply higher expectations of future inflation. This could also start to temp capital flows into government bonds that could reverse recent gains in the equity markes.

I see the recent rally in gold as a good indicator to immediate term equity trends ie downards correction.

I think gold will certainly trend higher from where we stand and break $1000 this summer.

Carlco, you aint seen nothing yet. with bond yields soaring, centralbanks are going to have to flood the market with heavier purchases of treasuries and guilts. but the real cost of these borrowings wont be felt on the currencies until commodities push further up.

hi ashraf, still reading/rereading your book, im finding the current market just about the best schooling for trading the fx gold exchanges as there could ever be. Is the market having the wool pulled over its eyes by the fed in the way of extra capital needed by banks? this flooding of treasuries by the usa and uk has to feed into the cable at some point, right? my mind is boggling over how this will unravel, Q. How might the interest payments on gov. borrowings effect/influence BOE base rate, ie are these huge debt obligations going to pressure inflation ?

OK Christine will do. Still bullish gold for the long term. but 930 appears as a ST target as early as this week if stocks do come down. Today's chart shows a break above the Feb trend line. Support at 870 trend line.

Hi Ashraf this is Christine from Singapore again. I like to recommend everyone to read your book which is clearly written, offering many valuable insights that many of us will benefit. You said as long as gold holds $880 short term still bolsterred. Last few days gold under heavy selling and today 6 apr broke the 880, what is the near term support? although longer view is intact. Should one get out first nwait for better price. Thks
