Gold Fundamental Analysis Forecast For 9 June 2015
Gold continued to decline as traders moved to the end of the week. Gold is trading at 1171.30 down $3.90 on Friday alone. Silver dipped to 16.055 and platinum eased to 1096.10. Platinum fell below the 1100 price level. Gold fell to its lowest level in nearly three months after stronger-than-expected U.S. employment data reanimated speculation that the Federal Reserve would soon raise interest rates.
Prices settled at the lowest for a most-active contract since March 18. For the week, prices were down about 1.8%.
The Commerce Department said the U.S. economy added 280,000 new jobs in May, the biggest jump since the end of 2014 and well above the consensus forecast of 210,000 produced by a MarketWatch survey of economists.
Global bonds and stocks swung wildly this week, after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi signaled that volatility is here to stay, the IMF cut its forecasts for U.S. economic growth, and uncertainty over Greece’s debt burden continued.
The first rate hike in nearly a decade is seen as a negative for gold, which can struggle as monetary policy tightens and Treasury yields rise.
Uncertainty over Greece remains a factor in the market. Greece on Thursday said it would opt to bundle a series of weekly June payments to the International Monetary Fund into a single payment at the end of the month.
