Gold clinches 2-month tops, Trump on sight

The ounce troy of the precious metal keeps the bullish bias intact today, advancing to the area of multi-week peaks around $1,190.

Gold bid ahead of Trump’s presser

Prices for Bullion have recovered from yesterday’s small retracement and are extending the upside for the third week in a row so far today, as market participants remain cautious on the upcoming post-election press conference by president-elect Donald Trump.

Gold remains well bid against the backdrop of a weak start of the year for the greenback, particularly after the FOMC minutes poured cold water over USD-bulls, highlighting the significant uncertainty that surrounds the probable policies under Trump’s administration.

Today, investors will look for any detail on the promises made by Trump regarding fiscal stimulus, infrastructure plans, deregulation and taxes, which could prove to be vital for the buck’s direction in the near term.
