#Gold has lost ground so far in 2021 after posting its biggest annual gain in a decade on the back of the devastating effects of the pandemic, vast stimulus, and rising haven demand.
Now, Federal Reserve officials are saying that more fiscal support and the mass distribution of vaccines could lead to a strong U.S. economic recovery in the second half, setting the stage for a discussion about tapering of bond buying before the year-end.
While gold had been pressured by the dollar’s rebound and rising yields, markets appear to have temporarily ignored the prospects for rising inflation and fresh stimulus, according to Shayne Heffernan. “That means the sell-off in gold could be temporary, and the downside may be cushioned by fresh stimulus to be announced by Biden,” he said.
Gold closed up 9.645 at 1,854.306. Volume was 8,900% above average (trending) and Bollinger Bands were 8% wider than normal.
Short-term traders should pay closer attention to buy/sell arrows while intermediate/long-term traders should place greater emphasis on the Bullish or Bearish trend reflected in the lower ribbon.
