Gold reached a two-month high of $1,853 per ounce on Tuesday, as investors sought safe-haven assets, threatened by the Russia-Ukraine crisis and the stock market turmoil at the beginning of the week.
Gold could not hold onto its gains in the wake of the Fed’s announcement of a rate hike though, and plummeted to below $1,815 per ounce. Fed Chair Powel’s speech was especially hawkish, signaling a rate hike at the next Fed policy meeting in March, and not ruling out hikes at consecutive meetings. The US dollar and treasury yields climbed after Powel’s speech, putting pressure on gold. The appeal of gold as an investment diminishes when interest-bearing assets, such as treasury yields, rise.
If the price of gold rises again, it may find resistance at $1,829 per ounce and further up at $1,877 per ounce, while if the price of gold decreases, the $1,800 level may provide support, while further down, support may be found at 1,782 per ounce. This week, gold price is expected to show some volatility, due to the mounting tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
