Gold Tries To Gain More Ground At The Start Of The Week
Gold is trying to settle above the resistance level at $1950, while Treasury yields are testing new highs.
The yield of 10-year Treasuries has recently managed to settle above the 2.75% level and is trying to move towards the 2.80% level. Longer-term yields have been rising fast in recent weeks, which was bearish for precious metals.
However, gold bulls ignored higher yields as they focused on rising geopolitical tensions. Demand for the safe-haven U.S. dollar has also increased, but stronger dollar failed to put any pressure on gold markets.
Not surprisingly, VanEck Gold Miners ETF managed to settle above $39.50 during the previous trading session and looks ready to test yearly highs near $40.25.
