Gold found some stability after yesterday’s price volatility as investors seemed to breathe a sigh of relief over the much softer than expected US GDP numbers. The XAU/USD hit fresh session highs at $1895 in wake of this news which has caused more confusion.
During a volatile session XAU/USD went back to a lower level in the 1800s. Traders and investors alike wait for what is going on with US economic outlooks.
The US economy continues to expand, with the latest GDP numbers showing that growth is slowing down. The strong inflation readings released alongside these disappointing reports may be a sign of things going not-too-well for future investors.
A possible raise in interest rates, expected before the year’s end, would keep US yields and US dollars underpinned, which would open the challenge for a recovery in XAU/USD above 1900$.
If the Fed does become less concerned about fighting inflation, this could be a nudge for gold in the long-run. Since it would be perceived by investors as a safe-haven on which to rely.
On a technical side of the analysis XAU/USD during the last session marked a price of 1885.69 with a variation of 0.01%.
