Gold moderately declines in Asia

Gold moderately declines in Asia

On Monday, gold slumped in Asia because Donald Trump's first foreign visits as president were in focus with several deals signed in Saudi Arabia in the first stop. Additionally, traders neglected the latest missile test by North Korea.

June delivery gold futures tumbled 0.05%, trading at 1,252.99 a troy ounce. As for copper futures, they went down 0.62% a pound, hitting $2.571 a pound.

In the week ahead, market participants will be paying attention to Wednesday’s Federal Reserve gathering minutes for new signs as for the possible timing of the next American rate lift. Additionally, revised data on American first quarter surge as well as private sector poll data out of the euro zone will be in focus too.

In Canada, financial markets will be unavailable for a holiday.

The previous week, gold prices ascended on Friday and marked the greatest weekly revenue since mid-April. It’s because political uncertainty as for the Trump administration brought the greenback down, spurring demand for the number one precious metal.
