CPM Group’s previous sell recommendation failed to reach its $1,875 target. There has been strong support for gold prices on expectations of a recession and a consequent reversal in the Fed’s monetary policy during the fourth quarter of this year. This market expectation seems to be largely baked into prices at this time. There is a risk to the present bullishness in gold prices, from the Fed reiterating its plan to keep rates steady through 2023, during the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting on today and 1 February. This risk could weigh on gold prices over the next couple of days. While a trend reversal in gold prices is not expected, a pull back to $1,910 or even $1,900 should not be ruled out. Following the FOMC meeting, the next key piece of data will be January employment data due for release on 3 February.
