COMEX gold trades little changed near $1795/oz after a 1.6% gain last week. Gold remains supported by weaker US dollar, retreat in bond yields, increasing inflation concerns, renewed virus concerns, and mixed economic data from major economies.
However, weighing on price is lack of investor buying, strength in equity markets, and increasing expectations of Fed’s monetary tightening.
Gold continues to struggle to sustain above the $1800/oz level which shows a lack of confidence however with increasing challenges to the global economy, prices may remain supported.
