Gold Prices held above $1,900 an ounce on Tuesday, hovering close to its strongest levels since April last year as easing US inflation and related expectations sparked hopes for less aggressive monetary tightening from the Federal Reserve.
The annual inflation rate in the US slowed for a sixth straight month to 6.5% in December, in line with market forecasts. That was also the lowest reading since October 2021, raising hopes that inflation peaked in June at 9.1%.
Investors are mostly expecting the central bank to downshift to a smaller 25 basis point rate hike in February after delivering four 75 basis point increases last year and a half-percentage point increase in December.
Gold is highly sensitive to the rates outlook as higher interest rates raise the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion, and vice versa.
