The USD and Treasury bond yields are suffering from damage from the dovish US FED November meeting minutes and bad economic reports. On the other hand, the preliminary S&P Global Composite PMI for USA dropped by 3.95%, indicating increased recession risks in the world’s biggest economy. The US weekly Jobless Claims reached a three-month high of 240K, as layoffs in the US technology industry increased. The markets disregarded the 1% increase in US Durable Goods Orders as the US economy slowed. The significant economic events in USA almost clinched a 50-basis point (bps) rate rise by the FED in December, causing a strong sell-off in USD along with US Treasury bond rates which improved the price of Gold. Lower interest rates often enhance the non-yielding gold price.

Gold price has ignored China’s Covid revival and new limitations despite the fact that these factors have hurt physical gold demand in Asia this week. Gold premiums in the world’s leading hub, China, have decreased further, while increased domestic costs in India have reduced demand for the yellow metal. India and China are the world’s two largest consumers of gold. Thursday’s official statistics revealed that since the beginning of the epidemic, the number of daily coronavirus cases in China has reached a record high. The nation registered 31,454 domestic cases, and lockdown limits were reinstated in large areas. The market attitude is cautiously optimistic as the Federal Reserve’s dovishness overshadows China’s covid fears.
