Gold price crouches as US dollar hit decades high.

13-07-2022 03:03

“Stubbornly US inflation drove US dollar to a decade high.”

Gold price slipped towards mid-$1,700 threshold as investors continue to bet upon “hot inflation” in United States. Several series of data shows persistency in inflation as it continues to hover at four-decades high. Global supply chain disruption is left to blame as world’s largest manufacturing powerhouse – China exercised brute lockdown due to zero covid policy. Nonetheless, even as Fed initiated several rounds of rate hike, inflation pressure is too “sticky” to budge down.
