Gold traded in range amid political turmoil in Washington, after President Trump unexpectedly fired FBI chief James Comey. However gains were capped by better than expected producer inflation and labor market data. Fed’s Dudley said the U.S. central bank will normalize its balance sheet in a “very careful way”, while leaving “sufficient” excess reserves in the financial system.
New applications for U.S. jobless benefits unexpectedly fell last week, while producer prices rebounded strongly in April, pointing to a tightening labour market and rising inflation that could spur the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates in June.
President Donald Trump ran into resistance for calling ousted FBI chief James Comey a “showboat,” an attack that was swiftly contradicted by top U.S. senators and the acting FBI leader, who pledged that an investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to Russia would proceed with vigor.
Gold is highly sensitive to rising U.S. rates, which increase the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion, while boosting the dollar, in which it is priced.
Finance chiefs from the G7 begin a two-day meeting in Italy on Friday, with Europe, Japan and Canada hoping to come away with a clearer picture of U.S. President Donald Trump’s direction on important policies that he has yet to spell out. — Neal Bhai Reports
