Skerdian Meta • 1 min read
In the early Tokyo session, the gold price is under intense pressure to break through the round-level resistance of $1,800.00. As the bullish US Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP) failed to fade the risk appetite trend, the precious metal is predicted to show additional gains ahead and may extend toward a new three-month high of $1,824.63.
The US Dollar Index (DXY) is set to retest the previous week’s low of about 104.40, as market participants believe that good employment growth in November will be insufficient to dispel predictions of a slowdown in the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike pace (Fed). Furthermore, 10-year US Treasury rates have fallen below 3.50% with no intermediate cushion.
The United States ISM Services report, released on Monday, is the economic spark investors are looking for further direction. The economic statistics are expected to be stronger at 55.6 compared to the previous report of 54.4. Aside from that, the ISM Services New Orders Index data will impact GOLD prices. The economic statistics are predicted to be higher at 58.5, indicating healthy household demand that may give a buffer to future inflation.
