Gold market update
Gold prices edged up on Monday, recouping some losses after a sell-off in the previous session as US bond yields and the dollar softened, restoring some of the precious metal’s appeal.
Also supporting bullion, the US dollar index slipped 0.6% from last week’s 2021 highs, as investors figure that while inflation might pull forward the Fed’s rate hikes, other central banks may need to be more aggressive over the tightening cycle.
A global energy crunch has threatened economic outlooks and fanned inflation fears, driving some investors toward safer assets.
“There’s more risk aversion in the market and gold is benefiting from that, coupled with concerns about inflation and cooling of the global economy,” Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said.
