All gold traders are awaiting the Gold U.S. inflation report, due this week for establishing any clear trade in the metal. Currently, the metal has been in a range bound trade pattern. U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told senators on Tuesday that she expected inflation to remain high and the Biden administration would likely increase the 4.7% inflation forecast for this year in its budget proposal. While a higher inflationary set up supports gold prices, an aggressive interest rate hike by all central banks is negative for the non-interest yielding asset like gold. Expect range bound trade to continue.

Gold may appreciate amid warnings of slowing global economic growth. A surge in inflation bolsters appeal as a traditional safe haven. The World Bank cut its forecast for global economic expansion in 2022 further, warning that several years of above-average inflation and below-average growth lie ahead with potentially destabilizing consequences for low- and middle-income economies.
