Insights: Macroeconomic forces and future gold prices

Gold market update

Gold extended its recovery on Monday buoyed by a pullback in US Treasury yields and some safe-haven buying spurred by COVID-19 related concerns, with investors looking for more direction from the Federal Reserve on monetary policy.

Spot gold rose 0.5% to USD $1,787.76 per ounce by 14:40 GMT Monday, erasing declines from earlier in the session. US gold futures gained 0.6% to $1,788.10.

Prices jumped more than 1% last Friday after data showed US consumer sentiment plummeted in August, helping the metal recover from steep declines in the earlier part of last week after bets for tapering got a boost from recent, strong labour data.

COVID-19-related safe-haven buying has been seen in Europe, said TD Securities commodity strategist Daniel Ghali, adding that a rising trend of higher gold purchases from central banks is providing underlying support to bullion.
