Gold Market Update
Gold eased last week as investors opted for the relative shelter of the U.S. dollar.
Spot gold was down 0.2% at US$1,840 an ounce. Prices had fallen to their lowest since Jan. 18 at US$1,830.80 on Wednesday. U.S. gold futures shed 0.3% to US$1,838.60.
The delay in a US$1.9 trillion U.S. coronavirus stimulus deal, which has not received a green signal from Republicans, weighed further on gold.
“The Fed meeting yesterday had no positive impact on gold because, before and after the meeting, the dollar strengthened as it was sought after as a safe-haven due to other concerns in financial markets and that weighed on gold prices,” said Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann.
“Market players are waiting a little bit longer to see if gold can regain the 200-day moving average or if it’ll fall further to US$1,800, which should be quite an attractive buying opportunity”.
