Gold Edges Up As Dollar Extends Slide

Gold prices inched higher on Friday as the dollar extended a slide and Treasury yields held steady amid easing worries about Fed policy moves.

Spot gold rose half a percent to $1,860.26 per ounce, while U.S. gold futures were up 0.6 percent at $1,857.88.

The dollar was set for its biggest weekly drop in nearly four months amid expectations that the Federal Reserve may become less aggressive in tightening rates later in the year.

Cautious comments by some Fed policymakers including Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic this week and the latest FOMC meeting minutes suggesting a flexible approach on rates prompted traders to lower rate hike expectations.

The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes dipped to 2.7468 percent as the focus shifted to the U.S. April core PCE price index due later in the day that could provide clues as to how the inflation outlook is shaping up.

Oil Little Changed Near Two-month High

Oil prices held steady near a two-month high on Friday ahead of an expected surge in utility demand during the upcoming U.S. summer season.

Benchmark Brent crude edged up 0.1 percent to $114.24 a barrel and was on track for its biggest weekly jump in 1-1/2 months, while U.S. crude futures were down 0.1 percent at $113.97.

Oil consolidated recent gains after data showed China’s industrial profits declined in April as a result of COVID outbreaks and lockdowns.

Industrial profits decreased 8.5 percent from the previous year in April, marking the biggest fall since early 2020, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed.

During January to April, industrial profits expanded 3.5 percent, slower than the 8.5 percent increase posted in the first quarter.

The downside in oil prices, if any, was capped by expected demand growth at the start of the summer driving season in the United States and the prospect of an EU ban on Russian oil.

European Council President Charles Michel said earlier this week that he is confident that an EU-wide agreement on the next major package of sanctions against Russia can be reached before the council’s next meeting on May 30.
