Gold Dollar Notes

Precious metals have taken to steady uptrend move during today’s market hours. With US Greenback weaker in the broad market, both yellow and white metals have made considerable gains today. While increase in bond yields usually boost US Greenback in broad market, US bonds hitting new highs caused investor focus to shift funds from forex and equity markets to bond market and significant change in fund flow caused wall street to face huge losses which in turn inspired bearish sentiment in equity markets across globe resulting in weak US greenback.

IMF’s reduction in growth forecast owing to trade war woes and World Bank president’s comments above escalation in trade war leading to a possible decline in major economies across the globe also added to bearish investor sentiment boosting safe-haven demands. This situation has led to yellow metal moving uptrend for the third consecutive trading session today.
