Gold off from 3 – week high, expect to take some breathe here

Gold prices fell on Thursday after hitting  more than three-week highs, as a stronger US dollar and Treasury weakened support for expectations that federal interest rates will be cut early next year. The dollar index rose 0.3% after hitting a five-month low.

Yields on the benchmark US10Y 10-year note also rose, falling to their lowest level since July. US jobless claims increased last week, indicating that the labor market will continue to cool both for the year and in the fourth quarter.

 The number of Americans filing initial claims for unemployment benefits rose by 12,000 last week to 218,000, indicating that the labor market continued to cool during the year and the fourth quarter. Lower interest rates reduce the cost of unprofitable orders.

 On a physical level, China and Hong Kong’s net gold imports  in November increased by approximately 37% compared to the previous month.

 Gold prices rose sharply after the dollar index fell near a five-month low on market expectations of a US interest rate hike next March.
