Gold Price Jumps after Yellen Dovish Remarks, Copper Price Slides

Gold Price Jumps after Yellen Dovish Remarks, Copper Price Slides

Nathalie Huynh,

Talking Points:

  • Gold price rose as Fed Chair Yellen emphasized caution in Fed rate policy
  • Oil price pared losses after data of a smaller than expected inventory build
  • Copper price hit three-week low on Yellen’s outlook concerns

Crude oil prices cut losses late in New York session after data showed a smaller than expected build in crude inventories. The American Petroleum Institute published an inventory figure of2.6 million barrels in the week to March 25, compared with 3.3 million barrels expected.

Gold prices jumped to a daily high of $1243.1 after hitting a one-month low on Monday as buyinginterests returned after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said the Fed should proceed cautiously in interest rate policy. Her comments diverged from the recent hawkish remarks from other Fed members. U.S. Treasuries rallied with 2 and 10-year notes hitting four-week highs, as the market expected a more gradual pace of rate hikes.

Copper prices hit a three-week low of $2.1920 on Wednesday due to global growth concerns expressed in Ms. Yellen’s remarks. Looking ahead, China’s reviving property market will likely boost sales of steel, copper and other construction materials. However the outlook for metal demands remains gloomy as the Asian Development Bank downgraded its economic growth forecast for Asian developing economies in 2016.
