Comex Gold

Gold futures are trading lower on Tuesday shortly after the regular session opening. The early selling pressure is being driven by rising Treasury yields and increasing demand for risky assets. The market fell as low as $1323.60, taking out the June 4 low in the process, before recovering slightly. The move was fueled by a steady U.S. Producer Inflation report.

At 13:38 GMT, August Comex gold futures are trading $1328.30, down $1.10 or -0.08%.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Labor Department said in a report that business prices inched higher in May, the latest data to suggest anemic inflation in the United States. The Producer Price Index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.1% in May from a month earlier. Core PPI rose 0.2% as expected.

Gold prices rose after the release of the PPI data because the muted inflation figures support the chances of a Fed rate cut in either June or July.

Holding inside this range is likely to produce a choppy, two-sided trade.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under $1330.00 will signal the presence of sellers. Crossing to the weak side of the downtrending Gann angle at $1323.00 will signal that the selling is getting stronger.
