1 March, GKFX – The S&P 500 fell 30.45 points, or 1.1 percent, to 2,713.83 yesterday and the Dow Jones industrial average lost 380.83, or 1.5 percent, to 25,029.20. However, gold formed inside day Doji candle, signaling indecision in the marketplace.
Also, the Asian equities are reporting losses, still the yellow metal finds no takers. As of writing, the yellow metal is trading around $1,315 – down 0.14 percent on the day.
Bearish bets continue to rise
Further, the risk reversals indicate the traders are expecting a further drop in the yellow metal. The one-month XAU/USD risk reversals gauge stands at -0.325 – the lowest level since Feb. 5. The negative print shows the implied volatility premium for XAU puts (bearish bets) is higher than the implied volatility premium for XAU calls (bullish bets).
