Gold prices have fallen sharply over the past three days, in line with stocks and other commodities, as financial markets have shifted their focus on the increased possibility of a 0.50% increase in U.S. short-term Fed Funds rates when the FOMC meets in the first week of May. This view, reinforced by Fed statements and comments, has led to a sharp rise in U.S. dollar interest rates and the U.S. dollar exchange rate, along with a broad sell-off of financial assets, including gold and silver.

The bullish factors that are likely to keep gold high and move it higher in the near term remain in place: the war in Ukraine and financial market concerns about high inflation. They are likely to push gold prices higher over the next few weeks, but presently are taking less prominent positions in the collective minds of the financial markets as the potential for rising interest rates command attention.

CPM has one-month, three-month ranges and eight-quarter quarterly price projections with greater discussion of the factors behind CPM’s analyses provided in CPM’s monthly subscription service, the Precious Metals Advisory.
