Gold Price News and Forecast: Fitch raises 2021 XAU/USD price forecast from 1400 to 1600

Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD remains at the mercy of US bond yields/USD price dynamics

Gold staged a goodish rebound from eight-month lows touched earlier on Tuesday and finally settled with modest gains for the first time in six sessions.

The precious metal failed to capitalize on the previous day's goodish rebound from multi-month lows, instead met with some fresh supply on Wednesday and was pressured by a combination of factors. The upbeat global economic outlook remained supportive of the underlying bullish tone in the financial market. This was evident from a fresh leg up in the equity markets, which undermined demand for the safe-haven XAU/USD. Read more...
