June 25, 2019, | SQUARED DIRECT - Gold price is taking bids above the 1425 mark during today’s early session as the on-going USD weakness and pessimistic trade/political plays, continue to please buyers. The FOMC-led USD decline continues to prevail after Monday’s Dallas Fed Manufacturing Index lagged behind the market consensus.
Adding to the greenback weakness could be U.S. President Donald Trump’s criticism of the US Federal Reserve’s monetary policy system. At the geopolitical front, the US and Chinese leaders are to break the deadlocked trade negotiation during this week’s meeting of 20 global leaders in Japan. However, none of the sides are providing any positive statements to please trade optimists. Furthermore, Iran continues to stand tough against the US and turns down odds for the talk while the US President levied fresh sanctions.
