How to Trade Gold

The Fed Gave Gold the Green Light after Reaffirming Rate Cut ViewThe Federal Reserve announced their latest monetary policy statement yesterday alongside the summary of economic projections. The immediate takeaways from the announcement include the Fed sticking with the original, three interest rate cuts this year alongside upward revisions to both inflation and growth.Fed Summary of Economic Projections, March 2024Source: Federal Reserve, Summary of Economic Projections March 2024Questions have been raised over just how tight economic conditions are in the US given the resilience of both the jobs market and economic growth. Naturally this has led to much speculation over the ‘neutral rate’ which is the Fed funds rate that is neither accommodative nor restrictive and was previously thought to be 2.5%. The March forecasts include upward revisions to the Fed funds rate for the entire forecast horizon and more notably saw a slight rise in the long-run rate rate from 2.5% to 2.6% – perhaps a nod to a higher theoretical neutral rate.Ahead of the announcement markets had priced in the potential for the Fed to ease up on rate cut expectations in light of robust economic data and hotter-than-expected inflation prints that have emerged in some way or another since December 2023.Therefore, the confirmation of the Fed’s December rate projections resulted in a dovish repricing in the dollar and shorter dated yields like the 2-year Treasury yield, providing gold with the ammunition to forge a new all-time high on Thursday.Gold 5-Minute ChartSource: TradingView, prepared by Richard SnowLearn how to prepare ahead of a market moving news/data with the easy to implement strategy outlined in our guide below:
