Gold Price Prediction – Gold Rebounds as Yields Fall and Dollar Drops
Gold prices moved higher on Tuesday, rebounding as the dollar moved lower and yields dropped. The decline in the 10-year yield came despite a larger than the expected headline and core CPI report announced on Tuesday by the Department of Labor. Treasury yields appear to be topping out which could lead to a rally in the yellow metal.

Consumer Prices Surge
Consumer prices surged in March, buoyed by a strong economic recovery and year-over-year comparisons when the Covid-19 pandemic was about to throttle the U.S. economy. The consumer price index rose 0.6% from the previous month but 2.6% from the same period a year ago. The year-over-year gain is the highest since August 2018 and was well above the 1.7% recorded in February. Expectations were for a rise of 0.5% monthly and 2.5% from March 2020. Gasoline prices were the biggest contributor to the monthly gain, surging 9.1% in March and responsible for about half the overall CPI increase.
