According to the recent report of Mitsubishi, the rising US inflation could impact the gold-market participants. Gain more insights on the yellow metal with the 1 May Gold Price Technical Analysis.
1 May, OctaFX – Persistent US Dollar buying interest prompted some fresh selling around dollar-denominated commodities – like gold on Tuesday. Adding to this, a goodish pickup in the US Treasury bond yields, led by rising speculations over a faster Fed monetary policy tightening cycle, kept exerting downward pressure on the non-yielding yellow metal.
US ISM PMI to provide some impetus but the focus remains on FOMC and NFP
Meanwhile, easing geopolitical tensions in the Korean peninsula, coupled with improving risk-appetite did little to revive demand for traditional safe-haven assets and stall the precious metal’s fall to its lowest level since March 21.
The commodity, however, has been finding some decent support near the $1310 area and hence, it would be prudent to wait for a decisive break through the mentioned level before positioning for any additional near-term weakness.
Moving ahead, today’s release of the US ISM manufacturing PMI print for April would now be looked upon for some short-term trading impetus ahead of this week’s key event risks, including the highly anticipated FOMC decision and the keenly watched US NFP report.
