Gold at $1,600 is still in the cards despite short-term pressure - TD Securities
Monday September 30, 2019 09:00
Gold prices are still likely looking at $1,600 an ounce despite short-term pressure from better-than expected global data, according to TD Securities. “Notwithstanding the risks, we still think the Fed is set to cut rates next month, which suggests that $1,600/oz gold could be in the cards,” strategists at TD Securities write. On Monday, gold was hit by “less-than-gloomy round of global data, which follows less-dovish-than-expected messaging from the Fed.” Even if the Fed does not cut rates in October, gold stands to benefit, TD’s strategists add. “We suspect that a disappointment from the Fed could cause an undue tightening in financial conditions, which would arguably have a more pronounced impact on equities, and therefore could see interest in gold counter-intuitively rise thereafter in response.”
