Gold Prices May Fall as US CPI Data Cools Fed Rate Cut Bets

Gold Prices May Fall as US CPI Data Cools Fed Rate Cut Bets

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

GOLD & CRUDE OIL TALKING POINTS:

Gold prices rose as market-wide risk appetite unraveled once again, pushing bond yields lower alongside stocks and boosting the appeal of non-interest-bearing alternatives. The usually sentiment-geared crude oil prices managed to sidestep the selloff as Saudi state-owned oil giant Aramco revealed it slashed capital spending by a hefty 12 percent in the past year, stoking bets on reduced supply.

GOLD, CRUDE OIL PRICES MAY FALL AS US CPI DATA COOLS FED RATE CUT BETS

Looking ahead, July’s US CPI data dominates the spotlight. The core inflation rate is expected to print at 2.1 percent while the headline number ticks up from a four-month low to 1.7 percent on-year. While the Fed targets the perennially lower PCE measure of price growth (1.6 percent on-year as of June), outcomes in line with expectations may nevertheless cool Fed rate cut speculation.

As it stands, the markets are certain that more easing is due at next month’s FOMC meeting, with a 67.7 percent chance of a 25bps cut and a nontrivial 32.4 percent probability of a 50bps one. For its part, the central bank has been far less exuberantly dovish in its guidance than investors’ bets imply. Firm CPI data might pointedly suggest that markets have over-extrapolated.

Gold prices seem likely to suffer if the baseline outlook for Fed monetary policy is adjusted to a relatively less-dovish setting. The shift would probably boost the US Dollar and undermine the appeal of a non-yielding anti-fiat alternative. The Greenback’s gains may be amplified as diminished scope for accommodation in the current jittery environment makes for a risk-off tilt to overall sentiment trends.

Crude oil may revert to its place on the pro-risk side of the global asset spectrum, which would make it vulnerable in this scenario. API inventory flow data might muddy the waters somewhat however. It will be judged against expectations of a 1.57-million-barrel drawdown expected to emerge out of official EIA numbers due Wednesday.

Crude oil prices are retesting the 54.72-56.09 inflection area, with a daily close above its upper layer exposing falling trend line resistance defining a broadly bearish bias since late May (now at 58.86). Immediate support is in the 49.41-50.60 zone. Slipping below that would put the spotlight on the 49.41-50.60 region next.
