Gold Price Spike Erased, Selloff Resumes on Italy Vote Rethink

Gold Price Spike Erased, Selloff Resumes on Italy Vote Rethink

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Gold prices erase gains as selloff resumes as markets weigh Italy vote
  • Crude oil prices rise with stocks in market-wide risk appetiterecovery
  • US ISM data may cap WTI rally as US Dollar gains on Fed outlook

Gold prices spiked higher after the outcome of Italy’s constitutional referendum sent jitters across financial markets. Intraday gains have evaporated however as investors rethink the vote’s implications (as expected), putting the metal back on the defensive.

Risk appetite is firming anew, with benchmark US Treasury yields rising alongside S&P 500 futures ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street as bonds decline. Not surprisingly, this has undermined the appeal of non-interest-bearing assets.

Crude oil has falling in with other sentiment-linked and cycle-sensitive assets, following shares higher. Gains may be relatively capped if upbeat ISM data boosts the US Dollar, driving a further steepening of the projected Fed rate hike path and applying de-facto pressure on the USD-denominated WTI contract.
