Gold Prices Drop as Fed Rate Hike Bets Firm Before Yellen Speech

Gold Prices Drop as Fed Rate Hike Bets Firm Before Yellen Speech

Talking Points:

Gold prices fell as the US Dollar rose alongside Treasury bond yields and the projected 2017 rate hike path implied in Fed Funds futures steepened, undermining the appeal of non-interest-bearing and anti-fiat assets. The move may reflect pre-positioning ahead of much-anticipated Congressional testimony from Fed Chair Janet Yellen. The metal may suffer further if she hints that December’s projection for three increases in the baseline lending rate this year remains intact.

Crude oil prices retreated to the middle of their recent range after OPEC’s monthly report showed that Saudi Arabia overshot its obligations under the cartel’s supply cut accord, slashing production by the most in eight years. Rather than boosting prices, this seemed to tell investors that the supportive influence of output cuts might fade sooner than previously expected even as swing output swells. Indeed, the EIA projected March US shale-oil output to be the highest since May 2016. APIweekly inventory flow data is on tap ahead.
