USDX chart from March 2013 with Price objective of 102!

USDX point and figure chart from March 2013 with Price objective of 102! This target flipped to 75 near the end of 2013 for just a little while, then became back in early 2014, when the dollar was in the low 80s and then what happened? The dollar has gone to 102!

CPI has informative correlation with energy prices.

The CPI index for all items, year over year, has a remarkable correlation with energy prices over the past 16 months.

So much so, that one can take the year over year energy price changes as given by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in their inflation reports and predict the All Items inflation rate to within about +/- 0.1%.

In the following chart, I have used the energy price % changes and scaled them by the weighting that the BLS gives them and then simply added a constant to this figure (e.g. 1.6%) and overlaid it on the CPI all items index graph. EC on the charts stands for Energy (price) Contribution. Energy typically contributes about 7% of the CPI with slight month to month variations in the BLS data.

Blue line is CPI All Items index year over year for each month reported
Red line is modelled CPI based on energy price change times its given weight each month
Green line is modelled CPI based on energy price times given its weight adjusted by factor of x1.2
Purple line is modelled CPI based on energy price at weighting of 9%

In any case, CPI inflation is about 1.6% + the energy price multiplied by its weighting.

I believe that this shows that inflation is critically dependent on energy price changes as the energy bear market might be starting to flatten out and turn up. This has big implications for interest rate policy and gold prices going forward:


The basic comparison between CPI and energy price changes:

Target for Pound $1.11, gold $1170 or $1100, gold might still be near £1000/oz.

My charts as of last week:

Target for Pound $1.11, gold $1170 or $1100, gold might still be near £1000/oz.

Once $1250 region is breached, $1170 and $100 come into play at the lower ines of the Andrews pitchforks:



As for you Britush pound, $.11 target would just need a duplicate of the Brexit fall in a typical Trident Trading ABCD pattern (not marked):

1st move $1.48 to 1.30, next move 1.29 to 1.11. It could be worse. It could be taken from 1.50 to 1.28 then 1.29 to 1.07:

20 months EMA on gold being tested - Twins?

Looking at the monthly gold chart posted by FullGold crown on goldtadise, the 20 months EMA on gold is being tested. Do we have twins? For bears there probably needs to be a little end run around this average before the plunge. For bulls, the 20EMA had better hold.

Gold price in GBP sterling has retraced 61.8% of its losses and more.

I just posted this on www.goldtadise.com in reply to Mark's post.

Mark was looking at gold's move to $1369 and saying that in USD that is very close to a 38.2% retracement of the entire downmove from $1900+ to $1045 and possibly a point for resistance. I replied:


It is now $1368.70 / $1369.70 Bid/Ask on Kitco, right where your lines meet (1369.90).
High so far today was $1371.90, low $1364.00 (6 July 2016 10,00 BST UK time).
I guess you are looking at the 38.2% retracement of the entire downmove from $1920 to $1045 approx coming in around $1369, approx.
I am looking at gold in GBP and I can tell you that the retracement of the downmove is now more than 61.8% in sterling. Not that it is the most important price but it is interesting to note.

Actually I have taken a closer look and it is very close to 61.8% in sterling. Close enough still to be resistance. Also, today's sterling price (£1057) has just broken above the upper end of the support zone during the market topping process (2011-2013) which was from about 960 to 1015 BP. Last week's close price was about 1013 but today's is 1057 GBP. I don't know why the $GOLD:$GBPUSD chart is not giving me any of this week's prices but there you go! Here is the chart:
