COMEX gold trades marginally higher above $1685/oz supported by a pause in the US dollar and bond yields amid positioning ahead of central bank decisions. Fed’s 0.75% rate hike has been factored in and market players are now assessing the possibility of a surprise move. While some believe there is a possibility of a bigger hike, we believe that the Fed may maintain the pace given signs of improvement in the inflation situation. Amid reduced expectations of a surprise move by the Fed, gold and other commodities have edged up and could see some extended gains.
