29 July 2021With the ending of the latest FOMC meeting, gold in itially fell back marginally on what was seen as a more hawkish outcome, but subsequent statements from Fed Chair Powell seemed to rule out any short term changes to Fed tapering or interest rate policy or timing, following which precious metals prices all rose - a trend which accelerated in this morning's European trade

22 July 2021After a positive early start to the week, the gold price has been stuttering above and below the $1,800 level, while equities and bitcoin have been recovering strongly despite some negative coronavirus data.

08 July 2021The release of the minutes for last month's FOMC meeting, even though they confirm the discussions which decimated the gold price a couple of weeks ago - from which it had mostly recovered - seem to have been received with equanimity.
