Gold prices hit CPM Group’s previous price target of $1,840 earlier this week and broke below that level today. U.S. CPI figures released this morning came in stronger than market expectations. While the U.S. dollar and 10-year bond yields had been rising in anticipation of today’s inflation figures, gold had been moving mostly sideways in a somewhat trendless manner. The stronger than forecast May U.S. inflation figures are likely to cause gold to play catch up. In the short term gold prices could rise to around $1,860. The gains could be short lived, with a stronger dollar and high and rising interest rates acting as a headwind to gold prices.
It should be noted that the stronger inflation figures probably are being interpreted by the financial markets, including gold and silver, as pushing the Fed to be more aggressive on increasing interest rates and reducing the cash in the economy via reductions in its bond holdings. These trends and the financial market interpretations of them may persist through the summer, and into the autumn. Consequently, gold and silver prices might be lower over the next few months.
