Gold price surges in the last hour to the highest level since April 2018, above the $1350 level. What next can traders expect?
June 14, 2019, | SQUARED DIRECT - Gold price is nearing year’s high as a recent tussle between the US and Iran over 2 oil tankers’ blast in the Gulf of Oman turns serious.
Adding to this, the US Federal Reserve is expected to keep rates unchanged at its meeting on June 19, but markets believe the likelihood of a rate cut before the end of the year has increased due to slowing inflation and rising trade tensions, which is supporting also the yellow metal’s price surging. Traders might be interested in the upcoming China data dump and the US retail sales during the latter part of the day to determine near-term trade direction.
