Gold Price Forecast: Gold retakes $1,800, Upside Potential Limited Ahead

Gold Price Forecast: Gold built on the previous day’s rebound from the vicinity of weekly lows and edged higher through the Asian session on Thursday. The momentum pushed the gold back above the $1,800 mark, though a combination of factors might keep a lid on any meaningful upside.

Gold Price Forecast: Gold retakes $1,800

Gold Price Forecast: Gold flirts with the $1,800 threshold, keeps the previous day’s rebound amid softer USD during early Thursday. The yellow metal recovered the previous day from the weekly bottom as the US dollar faded the bounce off a one-month low, tracking the US Treasury yields.

The latest run-up in the gold prices, however, could be linked to the market’s fears of an end to the easy money policies introduced during the pandemic. It’s worth noting that the hopes of US stimulus and Sino-American tussles are extra catalysts that helped the gold buyers at the latest.

The US 10-year Treasury yields consolidate the heaviest daily fall since mid-August, recently picking up bids to 1.55%, up 2.6 basis points (bps). The reason could be linked to the expectations that the US Federal Reserve (Fed) and the European Central Bank (ECB) will track their global counterparts and tighten the strings of monetary policies. The market consensus takes clues from the firmer inflation expectations and recently firmer data from the developed economies, as well as receding fears of the coronavirus.

On Wednesday, the Bank of Canada (BOC) announced the end of bond purchases and the UK also cuts bond issuance. Further, Australia’s strong prints of the RBA Trimmed Mean CPI also push the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) towards a rate hike.

Talking about the data, a lower-than-expected US Good Trade Balance and improvement in Durable Goods Orders probed the US dollar bulls ahead of the key Q3 GDP, indirectly helping gold buyers.

Elsewhere, the White House’s (WH) push for faster progress over the budget talks ahead of the December deadline for the debt ceiling extension keeps the gold buyers hopeful. The news joins the Democratic Party members’ scheduling of an additional meeting for President Joe Biden to sort out some last issues with expectations of a deal on the much-awaited stimulus.

Furthermore, the US-China tussles regain momentum, recently over telecom and Taiwan whereas the Evergrande fears aren’t off the table, which in turn underpin the gold’s safe-haven demand. Against this backdrop, the US stock futures ignore the firmer Treasury yields and the US Dollar Index (DXY) stays on the back foot ahead of the key data/events.

Looking forward, firmer-than-expected preliminary prints of the US Q3 GDP will help the Fed hawks and weigh on the market sentiment, helping the US dollar to regain upside momentum. However, the ECB’s likely hawkish performance may challenge the greenback and help the gold buyers to keep the reins.

A generally positive tone around the equity markets could act as a headwind for the safe-haven precious metal. Apart from this, a solid rebound in the US Treasury bond yields, along with expectations for an early policy tightening by major central bank might further collaborate to cap gains for the non-yielding yellow metal. Moreover, investors seem to have moved on the sidelines ahead of Thursday’s key event risk – the highly-anticipated European Central Bank meeting.

The ECB is expected to leave its monetary policy settings unchanged, though the outlook – amid worries about rising inflationary pressures – should infuse some volatility in the markets. Beyond this, traders will focus on the release of the Advance US Q3 GDP report. The data will play a key role in driving the USD demand and influence dollar-denominated commodities, including gold.
