Momentum as well as technicals are bearish for gold and silver. Geopolitics is not supporting bullion. Israel attacking Syria is a game changer and also an indication that regime change in Syria will be much sooner. Next week traders will shift focus to economics with the FOMC meet and US April nonfarm payrolls. France elections voter analysis will have a bigger impact than the actual results. Full Story

The big event in the U.S. was the publication of the new U.S. Tax Code proposed by the Trump administration. While it was in line with his election promises, it has a long way to go before it is law. The market barely reacted to the event. There are doubts as to whether it will pay for itself as it relies on creating growth to generate additional income on which a similar amount of tax revenue will be achieved as is achieved today. Trump’s target is to also create ‘millions of jobs’ through such measures. Full Story

The European central bank meeting will be the key today. One needs to look for surprises. The Trump administration is all about announcements and no action. Trump is keeping investors on edge. His own party is against his policies. Trump will continue to keep investors on edge. Europe will be a bigger mover for the markets. The Turkish president now has dictatorial powers. Turkey is like the “Great wall of China” between Europe and Asia. West Asia will never be in peace if NATO and Turkey are at odds with each other. Full Story

President Trump is due to announce the changes in Tax rates he proposes, today. But these will not be implemented for some months still. Meanwhile his policy progress is being interfered with once again as the government’s funding appears to be back on the table as a negotiating tool, this weekend. Will we see a government shutdown?

We just might see some consolidation due to lack of major news. There is no big news from the Korean peninsula. Economic data releases are not that exciting to cause a furor in the markets. The direction of the US dollar will be the key for metals and energies today. Asian demand will also affect gold prices. Silver prices have fallen on a technical breakdown below key moving averages.

The policy of the PBoC against speculation has now been extended to the equity markets. The application of this new policy caused the Shanghai equity market to fall back heavily. But once it has found its new non-leveraged floor it will be far more stable. As you can see the PBoC is not tolerating speculative pressures on the financial markets, unlike the developed world. The main speculators in the west are the banks, but in China these institutions are firmly under the control of the central bank. Full Story

OK, drama’s over. The French election has turned out pretty much exactly as expected. For all that some of the papers are leading with “French revolution” headlines, the reality is that a face-off between the right-wing Marine Le Pen of the Front National and independent/socialist candidate Emmanuel Macron of En Marche! has been on the cards for months now.

North Korea is supporting gold and silver from moving into a short term bearish zone. I prefer to use the fall (if any) in gold and silver over the next two weeks to invest for the medium term to long term. US GDP numbers, US April jobs numbers (5th May) and France presidential elections (on 7th May) are there to cause a royal rumble. Full Story

London opened at a discount of $11.03 after hearing the results of the French elections.

A piano tuner who discovered £500,000 (€590,000 or $640,000) worth of semi numismatic gold coins, gold sovereigns (0.2354 troy ounce) and half gold sovereigns (0.1167 troy ounces) inside the piano will get to keep half the cash – but the couple who owned the piano for 33 years won’t get a penny. The piano’s new owners, Bishop’s Castle Community College, Shropshire which is near Birmingham, will split the £500,000 with the piano tuner Martin Backhouse. Full Story
