Gold Fundamental Analysis (Video)

Today’s data calendar is relatively quiet, with only Eurozone producer price inflation and the U.K. CIPS Construction PMI. How will gold behave today? Let's look into this 3 October Gold Fundamental Analysis from HotForex.

3 October, HotForex - US reports revealed upside surprises across the September ISM and August construction spending reports that add upside risk to forecasts for an Irma-depressed 120k September nonfarm payroll rise and a 3.0% growth rate for Q3 GDP. For the ISM, we saw a headline pop to a 13-year high of 60.8 from a 6-year high of 58.8 in August, as all the producer sentiment surveys are showing a sharp rise with the hurricane rebuild to new cycle-highs.

The jobs index also rose, to a 6-year high of 60.3 in September from a prior 6-year high of 59.9. For construction, we saw a 0.5% August rise after upward revisions across the private construction components, though public construction was revised down sharply, and we now have a new cycle-low for that measure in July before a 0.7% August bounce.

The dollar has continued to find demand, posting gains versus the euro, yen, sterling and Australian dollar, among other currencies. Gold fell to 1.5 month lows of $1,268, weighed down by a firmer dollar, higher Treasury yields, and prospects for a December Fed rate hike.

Another weekend with no N. Korea missile/nuclear antics has also taken some bid out of the contract.

Meanwhile, the Australian dollar came under some pressure after the RBA left policy on hold, as was widely expected, but as the accompanying statement of Governor Lowe remained non committal in tone, acknowledging improving economic growth but reaffirming that the inflation outlook remains subdued.
