March 19, 2019, | SQUARED DIRECT – Gold prices rally are on the bid for the third straight day as the Dollar remains in the defensive ahead of the Fed meeting. The Dollar index is facing deeper losses as the US Fed is widely expected to keep rates unchanged on Wednesday and signal less inclination to hike rates in 2019. The dovish Fed expectations, however, seem to be boding well for the equities as they are reporting gains. This fact could hurt the demand for the yellow metal and that is the reason why gains are still capped.
