Gold Slips Ahead of FOMC Rate Talk

Gold has been unable to hold its recent 14-month high and is drifting back towards minor support around $1335/oz. after a Friday rebound in the US dollar. The greenback remains the primary driver for gold and this Wednesday’s FOMC meeting will be closely followed for any further talk on the timing of US interest rate cuts. The Fed is fully expected to indicate a 0.25% rate cut at the July meeting, and if this expectation is missed, the US dollar may rally further, weighing on the price of gold.

DailyFX senior currency strategist John Kicklighter will be running Live Coverage of the FOMC Rate Decision on Wednesday from 17.45 GMT.

Silver Struggles with the 200-Day Moving Average

Silver’s recent break above $15.00 did not for long as the 200-day moving average, currently around $15.05, continues to act as strong resistance to a move higher. Silver has broken above the longer-dated moving average three times in the last two weeks but has been unable to close above the 200-dma. While this remains the case, silver will struggle to press higher.
