Quick Fundamental Outlook

Gold prices have dipped to a near one-week trough, as the dollar gains strength and the appeal for safe havens wanes. The focus is now on Federal Reserve officials’ upcoming remarks for clues on interest rate directions.

The dollar’s resurgence is weighing on gold, rendering it more expensive for non-dollar investors, coinciding with a slight easing in geopolitical tensions and a better appetite for risk, as seen with Israel’s softening stance towards Gaza.

Speculation is rife that the Fed may halt interest rate increases following signs of a slowing job market, a sentiment mirrored by a rebound in Treasury yields, suggesting investors are reassessing the rate outlook.

Despite the initial drop post-jobs data, yields on Treasury notes have bouned back, indicating investor speculation about a potential pause in the Fed’s monetary tightening cycle.
