  • Retail traders continue to increase their net-long positions.

Gold Price Outlook – Support Looks Brittle as Rates Remain Elevated

 

The recent sell-off in the precious metal is taking a breather after testing, and rejecting sub-$1,700/oz. levels at the end of last week. US Treasury yields remain at elevated and multi-year high levels, while the US dollar continues to hit peaks last seen over two decades ago. US dollar strength is also being supported by Euro weakness as the indefinite closure of the Nord Stream pipeline threatens European energy supplies.

The interest-rate sensitive UST 2-year is currently offered with a yield of just under 3.50%, a level last seen over 15 years ago. While this yield is unlikely to move noticeably higher, it is expected to remain at the current elevated level for the coming months as the Fed continues its fight against inflation.

Gold Price Outlook – Support Looks Brittle as Rates Remain Elevated

The Fed is expected to hike rates by a further 75 basis points later this month, taking the target rate to 300bps - 325bps, and further increases are expected in the coming months to take the target rate to 375bps-400bps by late this year to early next year. The rest of this week is littered with Fed speakers, including Jerome Powell on Thursday, and their comments will need to be followed closely for any clue about the expected path of inflation in the months ahead.

    • Still the silence is deafening in here. When will this happen?  it have moved most my Trading Capital to another broker who does support Trading veiw Does the deal with Tastytrade have something to do with this lack of progress?  
    • Well to me I feel that the  crypto market values transparency and reliable services. And Bitget has embraced this approach, attracting a large following,gaining up to 1.4million twitter followers,. Recent data shows significant growth in trading volume, solidifying its position in the market.  The exchanges  focus on user protection and satisfaction has fostered a loyal community. As the platform continues to evolve, its value may continue to grow. What are your thoughts on the importance of value in crypto, and what do you see as Bitget's future potential?
    • As more users embrace Dapp, it gets easier to trade crypto, engage in DeFi lending/borrowing and trade NFTs. With the growing need to trade NFT comes the introduction of Love Power Movement, a transparent and accessible marketplace with the best conditions for successful NFT sales. Although the NFT sector has recorded significant growth, it's still impeded by challenges like low protection of artists' and buyers' data, absence of organised policy protecting sellers and buyers amongst others. Love Power aims to tackle those by offering fixed commissions and royalties to creators, ensuring proper profit for sales. LPM token forming a crucial part of the ecosystem has been launched with no presale and VC investment, with intent to direct proceeds from token sales to NFT artists. As $LPM prepares to list on Bitget, the vast community of Love Power Movement would surely be watching keenly.
