COMEX gold trades mixed near $1730/oz and has tested a fresh Sep.2021 low. Gold trades near a 9-month low weighed down by persistent strength in the US dollar. The US dollar index has jumped to 2002 high on safe haven buying and tightening expectations. Also weighing on gold price is correction across commodities which has dented gold’s appeal as an inflation hedge. ETF outflows show weaker investor interest. Concerns are also high about consumer demand in China amid virus related restrictions. Gold is a safe haven and global growth worries are high however it has failed to benefit due to continuing strength in the US dollar and this may not change ahead of US inflation data later this week.

Gold prices have been under sustained pressure thanks to a surging dollar. The currency has managed to maintain pressure over the precious metal, even as there is expectation of June inflation numbers coming in at 8.8% . Gold is desperately trying to hold on to its $1730 support levels, but this is sure to be tested after tomorrow’s inflation data, as a higher inflation number will force the FED’s hand to increase interest rates by 0.75% . Till then the negative to sideways trend will continue.
