COMEX gold trades little changed near $1756/oz after a sharp 2.1% decline yesterday. Weighing on gold is upbeat US economic data which strengthened the case for Fed’s monetary tightening. However, supporting price is rising inflation concerns, persisting virus risks, concerns about the health of the Chinese economy and increased geopolitical tensions. ETF inflows also showed some buying interest at lower levels however the pace was modest. Gold’s sharp fall has dented market sentiment however we believe that market reaction to US data was exaggerated and price may stabilize near $1750/oz level.

Gold prices fell as much as $40 on Thursday after better-than-expected US retail sales. If we look at the economy as a whole, the retail sector plays an important part, a good indicator of economic strength. The retail sector due to Covid was fairly non-existent but now with a stronger retail sector could mean a more hawkish Federal Reserve down the road. Although we believe the retail figures will not impact the US Fed’s interest rate announcement next week as the Fed mainly looks at inflation and employment figures.
