Gold Prices Climb To Three-Week Highs After Markets Discount Early Rate Hike

SPDR Gold Trust (ETF) (NYSEARCA:GLD) and corresponding gold prices rallied for another session today as markets became less convinced of the likelihood of a June rate hike in U.S. Gold Futures for August delivery climbed $16 to $1,263 an ounce, adding 1.3% to three-week highs.

Global outlook also matters

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s comments earlier this week have restored a positive outlook for the yellow metal, which was trading under pressure following hawkish comments from the Federal Reserve last month. Frank McGhee, precious metals dealer at Alliance Financial, said that the expectations of rate hike are now shifted to July.

Jessica Fung, metals strategist at BMO Capital Markets, holds the view that sluggish global growth should also make gold appealing as a safe asset besides the Fed’s stance on monetary policy. In other metals, Silver Futures for July delivery also rose 3.75% to $17 during the session.
