Manav Modi, Analyst, Commodity and Currency, MOFSL, said, “Gold prices were flat as Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s hawkish commentary doused expectations that the US rate-hiking cycle was nearing an end, with investors awaiting economic data this week for confirmation on rate trajectory.”
All expectations that the 2 per cent inflation goal long sought by the US Fed and the ECB might possibly be in for a tweaking were dashed by the chiefs of the two institutions at the Jackson Hole symposium.
Governor Powell left open the possibility of further rate increases and stressed the U.S. economy's surprising strength, though he acknowledged declines in the pace of inflation over the past year.
