Gold Hits Two-week High On Safe-haven Demand

Gold gains as dollar dips on tame US data Brexit vote in focus Gold prices dip on dollar recovery over Brexit relief
Jean Garcia | 15 Марта, 2019, 01:37

Gold gained on Tuesday as the dollar slipped after tame U.S. inflation data supported the Federal Reserve's "patient" stance on interest rate hikes, while investors awaited a key Brexit vote later in the day.

USA gold futures rose 0.5 percent to $1,305.10 an ounce.

Gold prices hit a two-week high on Wednesday amid uncertainty over Brexit as well ongoing U.S.

Gold rose on Tuesday as the dollar weakened after the European Commission agreed to amendments to the UK's Brexit deal, although gains were limited as the agreement also buoyed sentiment for riskier assets. "The dollar has been falling for the last four sessions and we are seeing a small rebound today", said Margaret Yang, a market analyst with CMC Markets, Singapore.

"The ongoing Brexit (uncertainties) has diminished risk appetite as investors are increasingly unnerved on the potential of a "hard Brexit" deal", said Benjamin Lu, analyst with Singapore-based Phillip Futures.

The lawmakers are now widely expected to vote, later in the day, to delay Britain's departure from the European Union, currently scheduled for March 29.

"The markets are assessing the landscape in Europe and United Kingdom after the vote. If we do see the deadline pushed out, there wouldn't be a huge impact (in gold prices), but the reaction will be great if we see some sort of deal agreed to in the United Kingdom parliament", ANZ analyst Daniel Hynes said.

The safe-haven yen gained against the USA dollar, with the greenback easing 0.04 percent to trade at 111.30.

Meanwhile, US consumer prices rose for the first time in four months in February, but the pace of the increase was modest, resulting in the smallest annual gain in almost 2-1/2 years, supporting the Federal Reserve's "patient" stance on USA interest rate hikes.

Growth in China's industrial output fell to a 17-year low in the first two months of the year, pointing to further weakness in the world's second-biggest economy that is likely to trigger more support measures from Beijing. The US central bank's rate-setting committee will issue its next policy statement following its March 19-20 meeting.

As for other precious metals, silver for May delivery was up 4.3 cents, or 0.28 percent to close at 15.456 dollars per ounce.
