Manufacturing activity in the US rebounded in June while similar surveys from China, Germany and France all pointed to a recovery in factory activity. An early trial of an experimental vaccine from Pfizer Inc. and BioNtech SE showed promise and was found to be well tolerated in early-stage human trials.

On the other hand, gold was supported on the downside by US-China tensions and hopes of more stimulus from central banks. Traders also monitored minutes of the Federal Reserve’s June meeting, which revealed that various participants viewed the economy needing support “for some time.”
