A Short Term Outlook: XAU/USD (Gold)

Today’s U.S. session will remain light as few key indicators are scheduled to release but the U.S. session will remain interesting one as U.S. Fundamentals will give adequate volatility to the FX markets and gold too.

After the FOMC Meeting, gold traded sharply higher as Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell reiterated regarding flagged risks to the U.S. economy from rising inflation which took the U.S. dollar lower. In addition, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said that policymakers were ready to approve half-percentage-point rate hikes at upcoming policy meetings in June and July. Another FOMC statement to keep in mind is that, “A 75-basis-point increase is not something the committee is actively considering,” Powell told reporters during Press Conference. That made the market sentiments negative for an aggressive tightening policy path. Overall, Fed sounded a less hawkish tone which leads the U.S. dollar weak against major peers and gold higher.
