Gold set for best month in 4 years

Gold set for best month in 4 years

On 30th April, the gold prices had a surge, en routing to its best month in the last 4 years. This is because of the increase in expectations about the monetary ease provided by the central banks and the continuous stress over the global recession which increased the demand. Spot gold showed a surge of 0.2% at $1,713.75 per ounce by. The US gold futures showed an increase of 1.1% to $1,732.10 per ounce.

 

How the gold prices surged?

Eugen Weinberg, the Commerzbank analyst stated the immense monetary support received at the movement is helping gold. Regardless of the increasing risk appetite, the gold prices stayed above $1700 ounce even though it has faced pressure from the equity markets. Carlo Alberto De Casa, Kashif analyst of Activtrades said to the media that the investors will remain confident about quick solutions for the coronavirus. The central banks will be forced to print a large amount of money leading to hyperinflation in such economic turmoil.

 

Interest rates:

United States Federal Reserve preserved the interest rates and it should be left unchanged for sometime. The unexpected monetary influence provided by both the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve will probably increase the demand for gold in the future.

Over the last six weeks, the European Central Bank left the interest rates unchanged after revealing various stimulus measures including a plan to buy 1.1 trillion euros worth of debt this year. The Federal Reserve kept the interest rates near zero on April 29. They also promised to extend the emergency series of measures needed to help the battered and bruised economy.

In the first quarter, the US economy contracted at its shortest pace since the Great Recession. In the second quarter, it is likely to show a more sharper contraction. The Bullion showed an increase of more than 9% in the last month. It is boosted by several stimulus measures from the central banks to handle damage caused from the corona virus outbreak. The unchanged lower interest rates will reduce the alternative cost of holding non yielding gold. It is always considered as a risk against inflation and canker currency.
