XAUUSD Gold Forecast: Gold Prices Fall Following Powell’s Comments
The FED Chairman Jerome Powell failed to shed any new light on the pace of interest rate cuts later in the year.
Speaking at an event in New York, Powell struck a relatively neutral tone on the U.S. economy and monetary policy; he reiterated his outlook for slow but positive growth this year, despite rising crosscurrents in the global economy.
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell stresses the central bank’s “independence” in a speech.
His warning about policy caving to “short-term political interests” comes amid intense pressure from President Trump to cut interest rates.
He also stresses the importance of policies that will “sustain the expansion.”
“Since the beginning of the year, we had been taking a patient stance toward assessing the need for any policy change,” he said. “We now state that the Committee will closely monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlook and will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion, with a strong labour market and inflation near its symmetric 2 % objective.”
However, he emphasized that politics won’t be a consideration as the Fed is “grappling” with the idea of a rate cut.
Gold’s rally comes after Chairman Jerome Powell said last week the Federal Reserve would “act as appropriate” to keep the current economic expansion going, which upped the odds of the Fed cutting rates in July. Gold — seen as a global safe haven — also reacted positively to increasing geopolitical uncertainty after President Donald Trump signed new sanctions on Iran on Monday, days after Iran shot down a U.S. drone.
