The Fed kept rates unchanged as expected and upgraded the inflation outlook. Consequently, the dollar index jumped to a high of 89.14, pushing the yellow metal lower to $1332.57. However, the greenback faded the spike, thus helping the safe haven yellow metal rise to $1347.58 – post-Fed high.
As of writing, the metal is changing hands at $1346.29. The S&P 500 futures are up 8 points. Meanwhile, the 10-year treasury yield has backed off slightly from the 3.5 year high of 2.75 percent but remains well above 2.7 percent. So, the American dollar could find fresh bids, thus the odds of the yellow metal may find it hard to cut through the trendline hurdle.
