Gold Price Prediction – Prices Rise Led by Declining U.S. YieldsThe dollar eased
Gold prices rebounded from session lows bouncing at support levels and closing in the black. The dollar moved lower and continued to experience headwinds as U.S. yields broke down. The 10-year Treasury yield closed at the lowest level in 4-months declining down to 1.46%, after hitting a high of 1.67% early in May. CPI came in stronger than expected, but much of the gains were due to the base-effect implemented in the May report. Recall, May 2020 saw a massive decline in GDP, employment and inflation.
