Gold prices rose ahead of Fed statement

Gold prices rose ahead of Fed statement

2020-06-10 • Updated

A temporary return of  risk-off pushed XAU/USD upward after the recent pullback. It has broken through the key resistance level at $1700, that’s why it may continue climbing up further to the next retracement level at $1750. Last Friday gold prices fell dramatically after the surprisingly positive NFP report to the support level at $1680. That encouraging data was a clear signal that economy is recovering. As a result, investors turned to riskier assets that day on an optimistic tone.

Nevertheless, gold prices have gained for two days straight ahead of the Fed statement on June 10 at 21:00 MT time. Gold traders are waiting for guidelines from Jerome Powell, the Head of the Fed. If interest rates are low, gold will gain. It decreases the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding metal. Gold is also likely to be a hedge against inflation. The Fed’s prospect on a future recovery and downside risks will affect gold prices. Stay tuned!
