(Bloomberg) -- Gold held onto its worst daily loss since the end of November as investors weighed the latest U.S. inflation data and counted down to the conclusion of the final Federal Reserve meeting of the year later Wednesday.

Prices paid to U.S. producers posted a record annual increase of almost 10% in November, a surge that will sustain a pipeline of inflationary pressures well into 2022. This is boosting the case for the Fed to tighten monetary policy, which is weighing on non-interest bearing assets such as precious metals. 

Fed policy makers could announce a doubling of the pace of its bond-buying taper and lay out a steeper path of expected interest rate hikes, according to Bloomberg Economics. 

Bullion is heading for its first annual loss in three years amid diminishing monetary support from central banks, although uncertainties surrounding the impact of the new virus variant could stoke demand for haven assets. The World Health Organization is concerned that omicron is being dismissed as mild, even as it spreads at a faster rate than any previous strain of Covid-19.

Spot gold rose 0.1% to $1,773.18 an ounce by 9:02 a.m. in Singapore after dropping 0.9% Tuesday. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index eased 0.1% after advancing 0.3% in the previous session. Silver climbed, platinum was flat and palladium traded near the lowest level since March 2020.

    • Sometime one way to avoid touching one's PF is to participate in these kind of event to earn some passive income and perharps use some the proceeds to invest more. I am not quite friendly with bot but will refer it to friend with a trading community where i also get signals. I will appreciate you also share the link to the announcement for more details
    • Despite the fact that i have my reservation on some meme coin; i feel attention could tilting towards BNB chain meme coins. HODL was bullish yesterday upon launch and i may also look into CATA for some market analysis and possible entry cos missing out on most of the Solana chain meme can not repeat itself again haha.
    • I still beleive Pepe is still a strong competitor for shib and after Doge they should be among the few meme coin to hodl but would appreciate your analysis on HODL a new meme coin on BNB chain that has hugely pumped yesterday on Pancakeswap and Bitget. Its mainnet launch and initial listing was also yesterday.
