Gold slides in Asia on hawkish Fed minutes

On Thursday, gold went down in Asia because the Fed appeared to be a bit more hawkish in the December gathering minutes and market participants fretted over inflation difficulties.

February delivery gold futures went down 0.78% being worth $1,308.20 a troy ounce.

As minutes of the Fed's December gathering revealed, officials expect reductions in corporate as well as personal taxes to spur consumer and also business spending, although they are still unsure of how much impact the newly-passed reform effort will have.

The Fed increased their hopes for 2018 GDP surge from 2.1% to 2.5%. The vast majority of traders told that prospective changes in federal tax policy happened to be a factor, which led them to boost their projections of real GDP surge over the next several years.

While looking favorably on the soaring stock indexes, a number of officials have already expressed worries that that keeping policy too accommodative could drive bubbles.
