Gold Price Forecast: Gold Hangs Near Weekly Lows

Gold Price Forecast: Gold edged lower for the second successive day and dropped back closer to the overnight swing lows heading into the European session. Currently hovering around the $1,785 region, the prevalent risk-on environment in the markets turned out to be a key factor that undermined the safe-haven precious metal.

Gold Price Forecast: Apart from this, expectations for an early policy tightening by major central banks, including the Fed, further acted as a headwind for the non-yielding yellow metal. Bulls seemed unimpressed by a subdued US dollar price action, which tends to lend some support to the dollar-denominated commodity.

Moving ahead, traders on Wednesday will take cues from the release of US Durable Goods Orders data, due later during the early North American session. Investors will also focus on the Advance US Q3 GDP growth report on Thursday, which will set the tone heading into the FOMC meeting next week and provide some meaningful impetus to gold prices.

In the meantime, elevated US Treasury bond yields should extend some support to the greenback and keep a lid on any meaningful upside for the metal. Gold (XAU/USD) extends the previous day’s losses below $1,800 heading into Wednesday’s European session.

The yellow metal snapped a five-day uptrend on Tuesday while confirming the bearish chart pattern, rising wedge. The corrective pullback, however, failed to reject formation and keeps the sellers hopeful amid firming expectations of the Fed tapering.

US inflation expectations jump to the highest levels last seen during May 2006, marking acute pressure on the Fed policymakers to consolidate the easy money streams. The same propels the US 2-year Treasury yields to the highest since May 2020, around 0.49% by the press time.

The much-followed US 10-year Treasury yields also snap a three-day downtrend and challenge the stock future, up by one basis point around 1.62% at the latest. It should be noted that the US stimulus and upbeat start to the Q3 earnings season seem to keep the equity buyers hopeful, challenging the gold bears.

Gold Price Forecast: However, cautious mood ahead of the key advance estimation of the US Q3 GDP weighs on the precious metal. Furthermore, the news of the US ban on China telecom over national security concerns and the Chinese summoning of the property companies to gauge the financial risk exert additional downside pressure on the gold prices.

Looking forward, the US Durable Goods Orders for September, expected -1.1% versus +1.8% prior, may entertain short-term gold traders but the key will be the US GDP and chatters surrounding inflation.
