Geopolitical tensions persist in the Middle East, providing ongoing support to the safe-haven gold market. This environment is further reinforced by expectations of interest rate cuts by major central banks, contributing to the appeal of the non-yielding precious metal.

Despite robust US dollar buying, fueled by anticipation of the Federal Reserve maintaining higher interest rates for an extended period, gold bulls remain resolute. Even positive sentiment in equity markets fails to deter the upward trajectory of the XAU/USD pair, indicating a prevailing bullish sentiment. However, the potential for overbought conditions may limit further gains.

In recent developments, escalating tensions in the Middle East, particularly following a suspected Israeli strike on Iran’s embassy in Syria, have propelled gold to a new all-time high. Furthermore, the US Producer Price Index figures, which came in below expectations, reinforce hopes for a forthcoming interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve, providing additional impetus to XAU/USD.

Traders, as indicated by the CME Group’s FedWatch tool, perceive a likelihood of the Fed delaying rate cuts until the September policy meeting, with expectations of fewer than two rate reductions this year. Comments from New York Fed President John Williams suggest that while inflation setbacks are acknowledged, immediate policy changes are not warranted. Meanwhile, Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin indicates that the central bank remains unsatisfied with current inflation levels, emphasizing the need for a cautious approach.

During the Asian session on Friday, the USD/CAD pair remained confined within a narrow trading range, exhibiting signs of a pause following a late pullback from its recent peak, the highest level observed since November 22.

The ongoing tension in the Middle East, particularly concerning a potential retaliatory action by Iran following a suspected Israeli strike on its embassy in Syria, has bolstered crude oil prices. This geopolitical concern has strengthened the commodity-linked Canadian Dollar (CAD), acting as a deterrent for the USD/CAD pair. However, the apprehension surrounding the escalating non-OPEC output, primarily driven by the United States, may limit gains in oil prices. Moreover, market expectations of a delay in interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve (Fed) have favored the USD bulls, providing a buffer against potential downside pressure on the currency pair.

FED Powell will do tapering in the upcoming meeting as Job data proves a positive mood in the economy.

Following the release of higher-than-expected US consumer inflation figures earlier in the week, investor sentiment regarding the timing of the Fed’s rate cut has shifted. This adjustment in expectations, pushing back the anticipated rate cut to September from June, has bolstered US Treasury bond yields and upheld the strength of the USD, consolidating near its recent peak levels. Technically, the breakout above the 1.3600-1.3610 resistance zone and subsequent upward movement suggest a bullish bias for spot prices.

Market participants will closely monitor the release of the Preliminary Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index during the North American session, along with speeches by FOMC members, which are expected to influence USD demand. Combined with developments in oil prices, these factors are likely to create short-term trading opportunities around the USD/CAD pair, which appears poised to record gains for the second consecutive week.

Oil Prices Navigate Bumpy Waters: Inflation, Geopolitics, and Demand

Oil prices, often referred to as “black gold,” are experiencing downward pressure today. This decline is primarily driven by concerns about inflation in the United States. Recent economic data suggests that inflation is not cooling off as quickly as anticipated. This has led to speculation that the Federal Reserve (Fed), the central bank of the US, will be forced to delay planned interest rate cuts.

Lower interest rates typically stimulate economic activity, which can lead to increased demand for oil. However, with the Fed potentially keeping rates steady or even raising them, the expectation for a surge in oil demand is diminishing. This puts downward pressure on oil prices.

Further contributing to the decline is a recent report from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). The report revealed a larger-than-expected increase in US crude oil stockpiles. This surplus suggests that supply is currently exceeding demand, another factor pushing oil prices lower.

However, there are forces acting in the opposite direction. Geopolitical tensions in the Middle East, particularly the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, continue to simmer. Additionally, the possibility of retaliation by Iran for a suspected Israeli airstrike creates significant uncertainty. These tensions raise concerns about potential disruptions to oil supplies in the region. If such disruptions occur, they could significantly restrict supply and drive oil prices back up.

In essence, the price of oil is currently caught in a tug-of-war. On one side, inflation and rising interest rates threaten to dampen demand. On the other side, geopolitical instability in the Middle East presents a risk of supply disruptions. The near-term direction of oil prices will depend on which of these forces proves more dominant.
