Comex Gold

Gold futures are inching higher in a lackluster trade shortly after the opening on Wednesday.  A slight setback in the dollar and slightly lower Treasury yields could be behind the move. Most traders agree that gold isn’t likely to make a major move this week until after the European Central Bank (ECB) announces its monetary policy decisions on Thursday. Today’s price action could be a reflection of day traders trying to make a market.

At 13:11 GMT, December Comex gold is trading $1945.20, up $2.00 or +0.10%.

According to reports, some investors sold gold to offset losses from a recent selloff in equites, but worries about a delay in the development of a coronavirus vaccine limited the metal’s declines. Today’s rebound in the stock market could also be dampening the U.S. Dollar’s appeal as a safe-haven asset.
