Gold Price Technical Analysis: Gold futures are trading at their high of the session late Wednesday as Treasury yields eased after subdued consumer inflation data and an adequate 10-year Treasury bond auction. The drop in yields also drove the U.S. Dollar lower, making dollar-denominated gold more attractive to foreign buyers.
Gold Price Technical Analysis – Target
At 20:28 GMT, April Comex gold futures are trading $1723.70, up $6.80 or +0.40%. 10-year U.S. Treasury yields dropped after data showed U.S. consumer prices increased in February, though underlying inflation remained tepid.
U.S. Treasury yields were also pressured after key 10-year Treasury auction data showed enough demand to stave off fears of investors worried about a possible slump in demand for the government’s debt and a recent rapid rise in rates.
