Gold Breaks Through $2050: Is This a Turning Point?


Gold prices successfully broke through the key resistance level of $2,050 per ounce and were stable above this price at the close of the day.

In the recent international gold market, gold prices have shown a significant upward trend. Particularly on the 12th, the price of gold successfully broke through the key resistance level of $2050 per ounce and remained stable above this price at the close of the day. According to the New York Mercantile Exchange data, the price of gold futures for February rose by $32.4, closing at $2051.6 per ounce, an increase of 1.6%.

The increase in prices is mainly due to escalating geopolitical tensions and the influence of US economic data. Geopolitically, recent airstrikes by the US and UK on Yemen have heightened instability in the Middle East, leading to increased market risk aversion and thus driving up the demand for gold as a safe-haven asset. Additionally, the weak performance of the US Producer Price Index (PPI) in December caused a fall in US Treasury yields, which positively impacted gold prices.

Changes in market expectations regarding Federal Reserve interest rate cuts are also affecting gold price trends. Although the market generally anticipates that gold prices might enter an upward trend around mid-2024 as the Fed's interest rate cut signals become clearer, market analysts have differing opinions. Ole Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank, said that while a long-term upward trend in gold prices is likely, the market has not yet reached an overly bullish state.

Going forward, the trajectory of gold prices may be further influenced by US economic data. Market analysts point out that differing performances in US CPI and PPI data have led to fluctuations in expectations for Fed rate cuts. Moreover, the latest US economic data, including retail sales for December and the Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index, could all have an impact on the price of gold.

Despite gold prices showing strong performance recently, there is still disagreement in the market about future trends. Investors considering gold investments should pay close attention to geopolitical tensions, US economic data, and changes in the Federal Reserve's monetary policy.
