Gold Drops On Treasury Yields Rise, Potential U.S. Tariff To Ease Inflation

Gold Outlook: Gold dropped as Treasury yields rose and investors weighed the possible scrapping of some US tariffs on Chinese consumer goods that could help ease inflation. 

Bullion fell as much as 0.5% in Asian trading, after rising by a similar amount over the previous two sessions. President Joe Biden may announce a rollback of some levies as soon as this week, people familiar with the deliberations said, although the timing could slip and a final decision made. 

Major Policy

It would mark Biden’s first major policy step on trade ties with China and appears to be aimed at curbing inflation, which has spurred sharp rate hikes and damped the appeal of non-interest bearing gold. China’s Vice Premier Liu He discussed US tariffs in a call with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.

Interest Rates

The precious metal has fallen for the last three months on rising interest rates, but is managing to hold above $1,800 an ounce amid fears of a recession that could boost its haven appeal. Still, prices have formed a so-called death cross pattern — when the 50-day moving average drops below its 200-day counterpart — which is a bearish signal for some traders.

The minutes of the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting due Wednesday will be parsed for clues on the central bank’s tightening path and whether it’s likely to hike by 50 or 75 basis points at its July 26-27 gathering. 

Fed Minutes

Investors are likely to be on the sidelines until the Fed minutes and US nonfarm payrolls and unemployment data due Friday are out, said Brian Lan, managing director of Singapore-based dealer GoldSilver Central Pte. 

“If the Biden administration does scrap some Trump-era tariffs on China goods, it will definitely be good news for consumers and inflation,” he said. This “could mean that the Fed will not need to do as much to rein in inflation if this is passed, and will be good for gold,” he said. 

Spot Gold

Spot gold fell 0.3% to $1,811.10 an ounce as of 12:20 p.m. in Singapore, after rising 0.3% Monday. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index was steady. Silver and palladium, rose, while platinum edged lower.

  1. अमेरिकी सत्र से पहले सोना 1,800 डॉलर की गिरावट के साथ जारी है। बढ़ती मंदी की आशंकाओं के बीच डॉलर की मजबूती का असर मंगलवार को एक्सएयू/यूएसडी पर पड़ा, लेकिन 10 साल के यूएस टी-बॉन्ड यील्ड नकारात्मक क्षेत्र में बनी हुई है, जिससे सोने के नुकसान को सीमित करने में मदद मिली है।

  2. Gold has continued to edge lower toward $1,800 ahead of the American session. Renewed dollar strength amid growing recession fears weigh on XAU/USD on Tuesday but the 10-year US T-bond yield stays in negative territory, helping gold limit its losses.

  3. Fed Chair Jerome Powell said last week that the US central bank remains focused on getting inflation under control and added that the US economy is well-positioned to handle tighter policy. This was seen as a key factor that continued acting as a headwind for the non-yielding yellow metal. Apart from this, a blowout USD rally to a fresh two-decade high further contributed to driving flows away from the dollar-denominated gold.
