The Biggest Gold Story No One Is Talking About (Video)

It’s one of the world’s biggest stories right now and it could dramatically affect the price of gold. But, Americans have heard only a little about it.

The decline in India’s currency, the rupee, is nothing short of stunning. Currently at record lows, the rupee has dropped nearly 18% since May. It now takes 63.25 Indian rupees to buy one US dollar.

Causing the plunge is – who else? – Ben Bernanke. Here’s why:

Back on May 22, the Federal Reserve Bank Chairman spoke before the US Congress and hinted that the Fed could start tapering its $85 billion per month bond buying program. That policy, known as “quantitative easing”, helped keep bond prices up and, thus, interest rates down to near-record lows.

The Wealth Management segment provides products and services, including fiduciary services, private banking, retirement services, investment management and advisory services, and investment banking and brokerage services. Please take a look at the 1 yr. chart of CMA (Comerica Incorporated) that I have shown below with my added notations: CMA CMA has formed a long channel upward over the last (8) months. A channel is simply formed through the combination of a trend line support that runs parallel to a trend line resistance.  When it comes to a channel any (3) points can start the channel, but it’s the 4th test and beyond that confirm it. You can see that CMA has multiple test points between the channel resistance (blue) and the channel support (red). Following the CMA channel can provide you with both long and short trading opportunities.

The Tale of the Tape: CMA has formed a common chart pattern know as a channel, in this case, an up-channel. A long opportunity could be entered on a pullback to the channel support, which is approaching $40. Short trades could be entered at channel resistance OR if CMA were to break below the channel support.
