Gold

Gold edged up on Monday, adding to sharp gains from the previous trading session, as weakness in the dollar and equities helped the metal recoup some losses from last week’s US interest rate hike.

Concern that demand for bullion will take a hit from the rate hike continues to cast a shadow, and is expected to limit any rally in gold, which does not pay interest.

Spot gold had ticked up 0.3% to $1,069 an ounce 3.39am GMT, adding to the 1.4% gain on Friday.

“We believe trading conditions will start to thin out but that does not mean trading ranges will necessarily narrow,” INTL FCStone analyst Edward Meir said.

Liquidity would start to drop as trading entered the last two weeks of the year.

“Given the uninspiring chart patterns, we have to suspect that the path of least resistance remains lower still for the precious group as a whole, exacerbated by a stronger dollar and a more aggressive Fed,” Mr Meir said.

The metal attracted some safe-haven bids on Friday after global equity markets fell sharply as slumping oil prices raised concern about slower growth, while the dollar slipped against the yen on views that the Bank of Japan may not ease policy as much as expected.

But the outlook for the dollar is bullish as the Fed is set to increase rates further next year.

Gold’s rally on Friday followed Thursday’s 2% loss, the metal’s biggest single-day drop in five months, as the Federal Reserve raised US interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade.
