Gold goes up on Fed views in Asia

On Tuesday, gold prices soared in Asia in light trade with market participants cautious ahead of a widely expected Fed rate lift in June as well as prospects for a stronger greenback.

In New York, June delivery gold futures added 0.14%, trading at $1,228.78 a troy ounce.

Overnight, the number one precious metal stood still because traders ditched safe-haven assets, right after Emmanuel Macron grasped a landslide victory over Marine Le Pen in Sunday’s runoff vote.

Gold futures actually struggled to hold onto revenues because demand for safe-haven assets relieved, after centrist Emmanuel Macron outperformed his counterpart, gaining up to 66% of the French vote on Sunday.

The greenback managed to advance to session peaks and applied pressure on dollar-denominated gold, though downside momentum in gold was capped because a Macron win was highly anticipated, after he held a considerable lead over Marine Le Pen in the surveys during the buildup to the runoff vote on Sunday.
