Volatile risk sentiment and positive U.S.-China trade talks are keeping the downward pressure on gold prices, writes FXTM market analyst Han Tan. “Risk sentiment has been volatile of late, with investors reacting to every headline pertaining to the US-China trade conflict. A signed deal this month would ease global recession fears while potentially sending Gold prices towards $1,460,” Tan says. All eyes are also on the Federal Reserve officials’ speeches on Wednesday. “The slate of speeches by Fed officials over the coming days could offer further support for the Dollar, especially if they continue trumpeting the U.S. economy’s solid footing. However, should investors get the sense that Fed officials are still open to policy easing over the near-term, we could see DXY unwinding recent gains,” Tan adds.

Slowing price action in gold could encourage more selling this week after prices dropped more than 1.5% on Tuesday, according to TD Securities. “We caution that algos are still set to sell their length in the coming days, which could in turn prompt other gold bugs liquidate their holdings,” the bank’s strategists write. “Loss-avoidance is a tough sell, when equities' are breaking out.” However, longer-term outlook favors gold, the strategists add. “The optionality presented by the Fed, which it would be quick to add to cuts if needed but would likely not hike rates any time soon, suggests that many will still see a need for holding the ‘quintessential hedge’, which argues against a rout.”
