Gold Consolidates Further, As Dollar Gains on Euro Weakness

by Peter A. Grant

March 05, AM
(from USAGOLD.com) --

Gold continues to consolidate around the $1200 level. However, the yellow metal is actually proving quite resilient in the face of new 11-year lows in the euro, which are perpetuating the recent uptrend in the dollar.

The ECB held steady on rates this morning, and announced that they would begin their massive €1 trillion+ asset purchase program on March 9. That pushed the EUR-USD rate below 1.11 for the first time since September 2003.

ECB chief Mario Draghi seems optimistic that €60 bln a month in asset prices will result in a sustained adjustment to the path of inflation. Nonetheless, his own staff's projections don't see inflation getting close to their target until 2017. The market is far less optimistic, with expectations for inflation below 1% into 2017.

That suggests that QE may have to extend beyond the scheduled end-date in September 2016. Something Draghi acknowledged today that he is prepared to do if necessary. I suspect it will be necessary.

The dollar remains well bid today, despite yet another round of generally soft U.S. economic data. This offers further proof that the dollar gains are more a function of euro weakness than anything optimistic happening on the U.S. economic front:
• US initial jobless claims +7k to 320k in the week ended 28-Feb, well above expectations of 289k, vs 313k in previous week.
• US Q4 productivity revised down to -2.2%, inside expectations of -2.4%, vs -1.8% previously. ULCs revised up to +4.1% from +2.7%.
• US factory orders -0.2% in Jan, above expectations of -0.3%, vs negative revised -3.5% in Dec; ex-trans -1.8%. Inventories -0.4%.
I'd look for gold to remain contained within the recent range ahead of tomorrow's release of March nonfarm payrolls. Median expectations are for a gain of 240k jobs and downtick in the unemployment rate back to 5.6%.
