Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 9/28/2014

Gold did not break to new multi-year lows last week, but if you read all the news you would think it was just a matter of time. I continue to watch the weekly chart of GLD that appears below and as of this past week the move lower seems to be slowing.   GVZ moved […]

Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 9/7/2014

Oil futures finished the week closer to 90.00 than 100.00.   This continues to perplex me as the demand for energy seems to continue to increase while the supply side of the equation has the potential to be impacted by a gamut of potential issues. OVX moved up on the week, mostly in the early part […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 8/24/2014

The SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD – 123.19) dropped about 2% last week, but stayed in the mid-120’s range that we have become accustomed to, although at the lower end of the range. GVZ moved up a tad, but with a 13 handle the direction does not mean as much as the level. The level […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 8/17/2014

The price action for the oil and gold markets, along with their respective volatility indexes is inerrable when the state of the world is taken into consideration. Even a looming shooting war between Russia and Ukraine doesn’t do much for the price of oil, gold, or implied volatility of either markets. Friday things started to […]

Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 8/10/2014

Oil futures remained below $100 and despite frightening things going on in the world there seems to be very little geopolitical risk premium showing up in the price of oil or options that are based on the oil market. OVX basically worked lower over the course of the week. This past week was a busy […]

Oil and Gold Volatility Last Week – 8/3/2014

When I put these numbers together for the weekend there is always something that stands out and makes me double check my figures. This week it was GVZ. For goodness sake, they are panicking, I can feel it, they are panicking out there. I was in the classroom most of Thursday and Friday, but our […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 7/27/2014

Checking with top people at the Rhoads family reunion this weekend, the feeling is that Gold is moving up, that is if more buyers than sellers show up.   In reality the published pundits seem to have a bearish outlook for the yellow metal. As for me, I just hope it breaks out in one direction […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 7/20/2014

The price of oil rose a bit in conjunction with the flare ups in the geopolitical situation this past week. However, oil had backed off from 2014 highs a few weeks ago and did not come close to surpassing those levels despite some real fear that showed up in the stock market. This resulted in […]

Gold and Oil Volatility Last Week – 7/6/2014

The United States Oil (USO – 38.25) ETF was lower last week as the geopolitical risk in the price of oil seems to be subsiding. We saw OVX rally a few weeks ago when the price of oil moved higher based on increased tension in the Middle East. Now the price of oil starts to […]

Last Week in Gold and Oil Volatility – 6/22/2014

The price of oil remains a bit elevated based on extra perceived risk in the Middle East. Despite the price of a barrel of oil well over $100, the lack of follow though from previous moves higher resulted in OVX backing off slightly last week.   The price of gold woke up a bit with […]
