President Joe Biden has stated that the Fed’s job is to rein in the fastest pace of inflation in decades and support the central bank’s plans to scale back monetary stimulus. The 10-year yield has fallen from its highest level since January 2020, while the 500 is down 1% on Wednesday.


Geopolitical tensions support the demand for safe haven assets. Biden said he believed Vladimir Putin would “intervene” in Ukraine after amassing more than 100,000 troops on the country’s border, though he indicated that a large-scale invasion might not be in the Russian leader’s plans. The US president also said this week that he is not ready to raise tariffs imposed by his predecessor on Chinese imports.

According to Fouad Razakzadeh, analyst at Think Markets, gold is holding above 1,800 an ounce after dropping for the first time in three years in 2021 as central banks globally began to return to pandemic-era stimulus. However, bullion’s traditional role as a hedge against inflation and a sell-off in technology stocks supports demand as investors seek refuge in safe haven assets.

Fouad stated, “Gold is finally responding to high levels of inflation around the world.” “It remains to be seen if the latest breakout attempt by gold can be halted, but there are now more compelling reasons for the bulls to conserve their gains.”
