Gold futures are trading lower at the mid-session on Wednesday as investors await the Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision, due to be released at 18:00 GMT. Policymakers are expected to pass on a June rate hike, but traders want to know when the central bank will make it first interest rate cut in more than 10 years.

At 15:19 GMT, August Comex gold is trading $1348.10, down $2.60 or -0.21%.

Bullish gold traders are looking for the Fed to indicate it will make at least three rate cuts this year in July, September and December. This would set the most dovish tone. Prices are expected to strength on this news.

Gold prices could fall if the Fed indicates uncertainty over a July rate cut. This would make it appear to be a little hawkish.
