Gold Benefits from Safe-Haven Demand

Although experts do not predict crucial breakout rallies soon, go9ld is seeing a growing safe-haven demand. Market participants look for an insurance asset that would keep them safe in times of geopolitical uncertainty. Besides, the FED is said to cut rates sooner than expected. Even with relatively high inflation, analysts point out that low producer prices portend a decline in consumer prices.

The yield on the U.S. 10-year dropped below 4% due to rising market expectations, and the 2-year yield reached an eight-month low. Gold is benefiting from the decline in bond yields.

Even though momentum is picking up, the market is still a way off from reaching its all-time highs from last month. Not all analysts, though, believe that gold prices will rise. Commerzbank economists stated that they continue to anticipate a rate reduction from the Federal Reserve only in May.

May the trading luck be with you!
