Week review: the U.S. slowdown in gold prices soaring global relaxed Outlook – Sohu Finance – this week (February 1st -2 month 5 week) gold prices soared nearly 40 U.S. dollars, an increase of 3.7%. When the gold price was the lowest, it rose from $1116.82 an ounce to $1163.01 an ounce. U.S. data weak, Fed officials dovish speech makes the market believes that the pace of the Fed interest rate will slow down, which is the main factor in the rise in gold prices this week. In addition, the world’s major central banks loose related stock movements measures, physical gold buying, but also constitute a support for the price of gold. Next week (February 8th -2 month 12 day week) the focus of the market is still to the Fed’s policy outlook, especially Wednesday fed Yellen’s testimony, investors can find more clues to the Fed rate hike outlook. In addition, the real gold buying after the Spring Festival is also concerned by investors. The economic outlook is weakening, making the Fed slow to raise interest rates to support the price of gold. Oil prices and the stock market fall, prompting investors to buy safe asset hedging, gold prices in the Federal Reserve slowed down the main support of interest rate rise. Because the recent outlook for gold prices is mainly affected by the pace of interest rate hike in the United States, the increase in interest rates has weakened the attractiveness of gold because of increasing the opportunity cost of holding non income assets. U.S. data weak, Fed officials released doves speech. In the case of the Fed’s potential to raise interest rates in the future, investors seek to be regarded as a safer asset gold hedge. This week’s data show that U.S. manufacturing activity shows signs of stabilization in January, but the possibility of recovery in the short term is unlikely. US consumer spending was flat in December. The service sector in the United States is slowing, and the U.S. services sector slowed in January to the lowest level in the last two years, indicating a weaker economic growth in the first quarter. Fed officials’ dovish remarks have raised concerns about the market. Fisher, the vice president of the Federal Reserve, suppressed the dollar. Fisher said that the continued volatility of the market may undermine the U.S. economy and inflation. Dudley, chairman of the New York fed, said that since the Fed meeting decided to raise interest rates in December, the financial situation has been more tense, and if this situation continues in the March meeting, we will have to consider this situation. His comments prompted the market to weaken expectations of interest rates. Robin Bhar, an analyst at Societe Generale, believes that the main driving force behind the rise in spot gold prices is the weakening of the US dollar, and the uncertainty of the global economy is increasing, which stimulates investors’ demand for hedging. BMO Capital Markets, director of the basic metals and precious metals trading division, said, "the market is focusing on bad news and believes the Fed will no longer raise interest rates. At present, the price of gold is entirely affected by the weakening of the dollar. In addition, the market is under the Federal Reserve may not further increase interest rate expectations to adjust."
