Gold Price Rally May Stall on a Trade War Resolution

Gold Price Rally May Stall on a Trade War Resolution

Peter Hanks, Strategist
Gold Chart

Forecast: Bearish

Gold Talking Points:

  • Trade wars and Fed speak will likely dictate gold’s price in the week ahead

Gold recorded a solid week last week as it traded near $1350 and notched a 10-month high on Wednesday before retracing later in the session. In the week ahead, the precious metal will have plenty of event risk and economic data to guide price action.

The forefront of risk next week lies in trade wars. On Friday, President Trump announced the US and China had made considerable progress on trade and would likely reach a deal. The statements were echoed by Chinese President Xi Jinping and equities rallied while gold traded slightly lower as the optimism worked to reduce market fears.

In the week ahead, gold may be due for a brief stall in the recent rally barring a new trade war front. That said, the resolution of the US-China trade war is an undeniable reduction in global economic risk which clouds the picture for gold. Further, it may cause inflation expectations to shift. With a major headwind for growth lifted, GDP forecasts may be revised upward, and a recently dovish Fed could in turn strike a more hawkish tone.

Wednesday will offer market watchers an opportunity to hear the Fed’s tone when Fed Chairman Jerome Powell offers his semi-annual testimony before a House panel. After last Wednesday’s Fed minutes revealed a unanimous vote to pause rate hikes, the reduction of global growth risk may prove a catalyst for change.
