Commodities: Gold Rebound May Be Short-Lived on US Inflation Drop

Commodities: Gold Rebound May Be Short-Lived on US Inflation Drop

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Gold prices are correcting higher ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street but an expected drop in US inflation may undermine upward momentum.

Talking Points

  • Gold and Silver Rebound May Be Contained by US CPI Decline
  • Crude Oil, Copper Look to US Housing Data to Extend Recovery

Commodity prices are correcting higher as financial markets digest yesterday’s aggressive flare-up in risk aversion. Sentiment-linked crude oil and copper prices are following S&P 500 index futures higher ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street.

Risk appetite may find added fuel from expected improvements in Housing Starts and Building Permits. US economic data has increasingly underperformed relative to economists’ forecasts since late March however, keeping the door open for downside surprises to punish sentiment anew.

The recovery in gold and silver may be capped even in the event of a broadly risk-on scenario as signs of ebbing inflation sap anti-fiat demand. The US Consumer Price Index report is penciled in to show the year-on-year price growth rate slowed to 1.6 percent in March, matching a six-month low recorded in January.
