Gold prices rallied this morning as inflation data for the U.S. showed still high inflation, despite having retreated year-over-year. Most commodities prices rose as the U.S. dollar weakened. It could be that market participants expect the recent downward trend in inflation to continue and the Fed to slow its interest rate increase tendency. This may be too premature thinking, however.
While headline inflation has retreated at a fairly strong pace, core inflation has not retreated significantly. Inflation for goods has eased, but inflation for services has not and remains in an upward trend. Gold prices may have risen too fast too sharply and could be due for a continued correction, especially if the dollar strengthens once more. There is strong resistance from $1,900 to $1,910.
