Gold extended losses below the key psychological level of $1800 per ounce on Tuesday, the lowest in near four weeks and following a more than 2% drop the day before, as Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell’s reappointment pushed the dollar to fresh 16-month highs and bond yields closer to 1-month highs. The outlook for US interest rates is becoming increasingly hawkish, with at least three Fed officials openly discussing a faster pace of stimulus tapering. Gold previously gained as investors hedged inflation risks and sought safe-haven assets amid economic and policy outlook uncertainties. Higher interest rates dull bullion’s appeal increasing the opportunity cost of holding the non-yielding metal while a stronger dollar makes it more expensive for buyers with other currencies.

Historically, Gold reached an all time high of 2074.88 in August of 2020. Gold - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on November of 2021.
