Gold climbs on Bank of Japan's failed policy shift while markets wait for Fed rate announcement

Last night, the Bank of Japan failed to impress when they announced that there would be no change to their current interest rate level of -.10.  And as expected gold rose more than $10 per ounce with today's Federal Reserve announcement still to come at 2:00pm EST.

In reality there is little that most central banks can do except change course and raise interest rates since several have already gone negative, and ongoing stimulus programs are yielding little towards spurring economic growth.  But what has been the beneficiary of these central bank policies has been gold, with the monetary metal bouncing off its 100 day moving average on the BOJ's announcement alone.

Gold and silver are surging this morinng after BoJ's disappointment as a stronger yen weighs on the USD index. Heavy volume has lifted Gold off key technical support and silver through a major technical resistance...
