Prices as of 9:31 a.m. EDT 27 October 2022 $1,665.20 (Basis the December 2022 Comex Contract).
Initial Target Price / Range: $1,680
Initial Timeframe: 27 October 2022 to 11 November 2022
Gold prices have been in an uptrend since late last week. Prices seem to be holding up well in light of mixed economic data, volatile equity markets, and political winds. Today the first estimate of U.S. third quarter GDP came in at 2.6%, a healthy level and stronger than market expectations. Inflation meanwhile continues to be at high levels. It is expected that the Federal Reserve raise interest rates next week by 75 basis points. This is likely already priced into many markets, including precious metals. That said, the near term economic forecast suggests lower growth globally or recessionary conditions and still high inflation rates, in addition to political friction worldwide. Gold prices are expected to head higher, perhaps testing $1,680 or $1,700. There remains potential for a pullback, but could be limited to $1,650.
One-Month Price Range: $1,615 - $1,840
Markets continue to sway between the push and pull of rising interest rates, economic weakness, and high inflation. This will keep gold prices volatile in an aura of uncertainty. Over the next month expectations of continued increases in interest rates may act as a headwind to prices.
Three-Month Price Range: $1,615 - $1,840
Gold remains vulnerable to price weakness driven by rising real rates and a stronger dollar.
