During the Asian open, gold prices took a bearish turn as the US dollar rebounded. The dollar index that measures the Greenback’s strength against a basket of other currencies edged up 0.2% to $97.072, causing a drop in the gold prices.
What caused a sudden drop in gold?
Well, the demand for safe-haven gold started diminishing after White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow backtracked from US President Donald Trump’s announcement that Beijing had agreed to reduce tariffs on US-made cars. This triggered the demand for the US dollar while investors started selling gold.
