Gold low from 2-weeks high

Pure Gold

Gold prices eased on Thursday as the U.S. dollar firmed, although doubts over a swift global economic recovery and the Federal Reserve’s pledge to hold interest rates near zero until at least 2023 limited losses for the safe-haven metal.

Spot gold was down 0.3% to $1,954.42 per ounce by 0034 GMT, after hitting its highest since September 2 at $1,973.16 on Wednesday.

U.S. gold futures fell 0.4% to $1,962.90.

The dollar index rose 0.1% against its rivals, making gold more expensive for holders of other currencies. Longer-term U.S. Treasury yields hit their highest levels this week.

The Fed signaled on Wednesday it expects the U.S. economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis to accelerate with unemployment falling faster than the central bank expected in June.

It also said it would keep rates at near zero levels until inflation is on track to “moderately exceed” its 2% inflation target “for some time.”

Lower interest rates decrease the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion.

Meanwhile, data showed U.S. consumer spending slowed in August, pointing to a stall in the economic recovery from the effects of the pandemic.
