GOLD: the effects of tapering (Bernanke 2013 vs Powell 2021)

GOLD: the effects of tapering (Bernanke 2013 vs Powell 2021)


Hi Guys,

to keep it simple...

Financial Crisis 2007-2008 and Pandemic led to the implementations of QE programmes in combination with other accomodative monetary policies.

Following these events FEAR drove the value of Gold to its highest at $2.000 both in 2011 and in 2020.

In both these occasions, after having reached $2000, the precious metal bounced off the support to unfold lower highs to form what may look like descending triangles.

In 2013 the support was finally broken when Ben Bernanke announced a "tapering" of some of the Fed's QE policies contingent upon continued positive economic data. Specifically, he said that the Fed could scale back its bond purchases from $85 billion to $65 billion a month during the upcoming FED policy meeting.

On Sept.22nd, 2021 Jerome Powell said tapering of bond buying coming "soon".

Can you see the similarities? Will Gold react the same way as it did back in 2013?

It seems too easy to be true. LOL.

Hope the above is of interest but if you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask.

Good luck everybody!
