Gold prices have been trending higher since late last week when they bottomed out at $1,631.10. As prices topped resistance levels, follow through buying began to help push prices higher. This week prices topped $1,700. Today prices continued to climb following the release of modestly weaker than expected inflation figures for the United States. Headline inflation and core inflation both were lower than expected by around 0.2%, suggesting that the Federal Reserve may not need to continue raising rates as aggressively as it has going forward. The idea that the Fed would slow its rate increases over the next four months already was the consensus in the broad financial market, and the CPI figures reinforced this opinion. The U.S. dollar weakened on this news, providing support to commodities prices, including gold.
It is not clear if inflation will continue to trend lower, but this is the expectation for now. The most recent consensus forecast published by the New York Fed with September data is that headline CPI may be around 5.4% a year from now. More will be known next month when inflation figures for November are released and the Federal Reserve meeting takes place.
In the interim gold prices are likely to continue to test resistance levels. Prices are technically strong now, with fundamentals also firm. This is in addition to the exogenous factors that remain supportive of gold prices, such as the politics that can surprise markets at any point.
