The US dollar was mixed against the G10 last Friday and gold recorded its biggest weekly gain in more than six months, following last week’s inflation report in the US.

The spectre of higher entrenched inflation saw investor demand surge and the breakout in the yellow has also attracted new buyers as global markets search for inflation hedges. The sentiment is likely to stick around for the foreseeable future. the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that consumer prices in the United States rose 6.2% over the past year. However, this is not a uniquely US phenomenon.

Eurostat, the statistical agency of the European Union, has released a flash estimate for annual inflation in the euro area and like the US report, this estimate showed inflation surging beyond what has been considered the norm. The data has come in at 4.1% in a preliminary estimate based on incomplete data, considerably lower than the US rate. In fact, the world’s four largest economies – the US (highest in 30 years), China, Japan (highest in more than 40-years) and Germany – have all reported record inflation numbers for October. Economists, politicians, Central Bank leaders had been insisting that the current inflation is temporary, but the markets seem to think otherwise, and that is bullish for gold. 

One of the worst inflation calls ever by the Fed

We have already started to see policymakers back off from the transitory mantra but there is still a lot of work to do on the labour recovery, so there needs to be a fine balance in the communication in the past pandemic recovery. However, there are economists out there who are far more concerned. 

Mohamed El-Erian, for instance, a chief economic adviser at Allianz SE, says this will go down in history as one of the worst inflation calls ever by the Federal Reserve. He doesn’t think inflation will come down anytime soon and the concern is that the time between ending the paper and interest rate hikes is not going to be significant and that they will have to raise rates much faster, tapping on the breaks at the wrong time. In this regard, for the week ahead, the bond markets and US yields are going to matter for the gold price.


Gold will rebound for the third consecutive week on Friday as the recovery of the yield on backed Treasury bonds and tepid dollar will erode bullion’s safe haven appeal. Asia stocks were lower on Tuesday on the highside of data from China showing china is in a slump. China has already been on track for a recession in the US despite. Prices shot at record highs as earnings dropped slightly but were stable during Friday’s earnings.
