Demand for gold rose slightly as tension in between US and China boils over. After US Speaker Nancy Pelosi left Taiwan, China has reportedly deployed several aircrafts and drones near the shores of Taiwan. However, gains on the commodity were limited as several members of the Federal Reserve stoke up expectations for a larger interest rate hikes this year. San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly and Chicago President Charles Evans signaled that inflation has yet to cool and they may initiate more rate hikes to combat rising consumer prices.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment
