Fundamental analysis

Gold prices are rising for the third consecutive day, with the cost of a troy ounce of gold reaching 2,380.00 USD.

Market participants eagerly await US inflation data for June, scheduled for release on Thursday afternoon. This data is crucial for understanding the Federal Reserve’s future actions on interest rates.

The US annual consumer price index is expected to have decreased to 3.1% in June, while core inflation may remain unchanged at 3.4% y/y.

US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell emphasised yesterday that the regulator would lower rates when ready. The market currently estimates the likelihood of a reduction in borrowing costs in September at 73%, with another cut projected in December.

A Federal Reserve interest rate cut will lead to a decrease in yields on US government bonds, which will also exert downward pressure on the US dollar. There is an inverse correlation between gold and the USD.
