Gold Prices May Suffer Deeper Losses as Fed Rate Hike Bets Swell

Talking Points:

  • Gold prices digesting losses after dropping to five-month low
  • Crude oil prices advance on OPEC push for output cut deal
  • US retail sales data, Fed-speak may bode ill for commodities

Gold prices consolidated losses after having touched a five-month low in the aftermath of the US presidential election amid speculation that amid speculation that the on-coming policy pivot will boost inflation and encourage Fed tightening. Crude oil prices bounced amid reports that OPEC nations have re-doubled diplomatic efforts to secure a deal on output cut quotas ahead of a formal meeting later this month. The cartel unveiled the outlines of an accord in September but nailing down specifics has proven to be a challenge, as expected.

Looking ahead, US Retail Sales data and another round of Fed-speak may boost rate hike speculation, sending the US Dollar higher alongside Treasury bond yields. Gold is likely to weaken further as anti-fiat demand continues to fade in this scenario. Crude oil may also suffer as a stronger greenback puts de-facto pressure on the USD-denominated WTI benchmark, although OPEC-related news-flow and the API weekly inventory data set may disrupt prices’ response to broader trends.
