What To Expect from Gold In the upcoming week

What To Expect from Gold In the upcoming week

2023-11-17 • Updated

Gold prices (XAU/USD) surged more than 1.0% on Thursday of this week, rebounding from a lackluster performance in the previous trading session. This upward momentum was driven by a notable retreat in U.S. Treasury yields, spurred by disappointing labor market data released earlier in the day. Key catalysts include higher-than-expected applications for unemployment benefits, recording 231,000 for the week ending November 11 against a forecast of 220,000. Continuing jobless claims also surpassed expectations, reaching 1,865,000, the highest in almost two years, indicating growing challenges in American employment. The combination of lackluster economic indicators and positive October CPI and PPI figures supports the perception that the Federal Reserve's tightening cycle is concluding, fostering expectations of future rate cuts, which has contributed to gold's upward trajectory amid a more dovish FOMC monetary policy outlook. But is this all there is to Gold? Read on to find out.
