THE FOREX market investors shifted their interest to safer assets. Uncertainties in the global economy have been increasing the demand for gold. The commodity currencies have been getting stronger as well. The day after the Federal Reserve’s announcement, gold jumped to its biggest one-day rise in three months. Gold prices are also getting support from options traders. Meanwhile, A poll carried out by Reuters showed most of the economists expect gold to continue its bull run in 2012. Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said “At the moment everything points to even higher prices, given the strong risk appetite, the better mood among market players, the strong equity markets and the weak dollar”. Analyst at Barclays Capital, Suki Cooper said “Coupled with continued central bank appetite for gold, the broader macro backdrop remains conducive for gold price gains, given negative real interest rates, concerns over longer-term inflationary pressures and uncertainty surrounding the financial markets and economic outlook”.

As fears mount that the eurozone debt crisis could trigger a global recession, all eyes are on Germany to take an even stronger lead in the rescue efforts. European leaders and the International Monetary Fund want Germany to increase its contribution to the European Stability Mechanism. But lately German Chancellor Angela Merkel disappointed these expectations. Neither eurobonds nor more stimuli that would see the ECB print more money are acceptable options for Germany. The forex market investors think the problem is that the austerity that Germany wants will push Europe into a deflationary death spiral, then the EU economy will contract and tax revenues will fall.
