Gold moves up in Asia on Fed dovish tone

On Thursday, gold strengthened in Asia because market participants considered the Fed’s May meeting minutes to be dovish.

June delivery gold futures jumped 0.50% in New York, trading at $1,259.38 a troy ounce. As for copper futures, they tumbled 0.19%, being worth $2.584.

Overnight, gold didn’t change because market participants parsed the Fed minutes for probable  changes in the outlook regarding the path of American interest rate lifts, right after the recent bunch of economic data demonstrated a slowdown in American economic activity in the first quarter.

American economic surge, measured by GDP, tacked on by annualized rate of 0.7% for the first three months of this year. Since 2014 it turned to be the slowest period of first-quarter surge.
