COMEX Gold is trading flat today after gaining 0.48% in yesterday’s session. Although gold closed higher yesterday, it was bounded in a range as traders await important US economic data prints as well as Fed Chair Powell’s speech. The US Dollar index is also range bound between 107-106 after a recovery from lower levels. Gold is set for a best month in this year as the expectation of a smaller rate hike by Fed in their upcoming meetings has supported the yellow metal. Traders are on the side-lines awaiting the Fed chair speech as that will provide more cues on the US economy and Fed’s stance in the future monetary policy. Next three days will be important for precious metals amid important data prints like US Q3 preliminary GDP, ISM manufacturing PMI and NFP report.

Gold gained marginally in yesterday’s session despite gains in the dollar against its major crosses. Reaction on the dollar has been muted even after consumer confidence numbers released from the US came in below estimates. Investors’ focus this week will be on Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s speech on the US economy that is scheduled today and labor market for clues on the monetary policy outlook. The US Labor Department’s November nonfarm payrolls data due on Friday is expected to provide more clarity on the Fed’s rate-hike path. US Treasury yields rose in choppy trading as investors waited for upcoming data including third-quarter US GDP data; expectation is that the data could come in better-than-expectation and that could support the dollar at lower levels.
