Gold rises to six-week high as dollar drops after Fed statement –Reuters
“Gold rose for a second day on Thursday, hitting a six-week high as the dollar dropped to a 13-month low after the U.S. Federal Reserve indicated it would keep to a slow path of monetary tightening. The Fed’s statement followed a two-day policy meeting that ended on Wednesday where the central bank kept interest rates unchanged but expected to start winding down its massive holdings of bonds ‘relatively soon’. The decline in the greenback is a boon for dollar-denominated gold since it makes buying the metal less expensive for investors paying in other currencies. ‘We think that gold has turned something of a corner and may now be in a position to retest its recent highs,’ said INTL FCStone analyst Edward Meir. ‘With the Fed now likely on hold at least till the end of the year and U.S. bond yields falling, there are some forming tailwinds that should propel prices higher over the short term,’ Meir said.”
