- Gold price extends post-Fed upside, as US dollar, yields keep falling.
- US Q2 GDP contraction smashes aggressive Fed rate hike expectations.
- The path of least resistance appears northside for XAU/USD.
Gold price is extending the post-Fed bullish momentum, despite eyeing a fourth straight monthly decline this Friday. The bright metal is set to end with the biggest weekly gain since mid-May, as the US dollar correction strengthens. A less hawkish Fed decision, US Q2 GDP contraction and falling odds of a 75 bps Sept lift-off by the world’s most powerful central bank have weighed heavily on the Treasury yields, as well as, the dollar. Growing recession fears in the US and Europe have underpinned the bullion’s safe-haven appeal. The end-of-the-month flows will likely play a crucial role in impacting gold price along with the US PCE inflation going forward.
