XAU/USD Surges 1% on Dropping Yields – 13 March 2023

Considering a weaker US dollar and declining rates, gold price bulls are aiming for $1,890.

Fundamental Overview

In the last four days, XAU/USD has surged higher and is currently up almost 1% for the day. Dropping US Treasury yields have driven up the price of gold as the market prepares for any potential 50 basis point rate hike for the FOMC meeting in March.

In the last four days, XAU/USD has surged higher and is currently up almost 1% for the day. Dropping US Treasury yields have driven up the price of gold as the market prepares for any potential 50 basis point rate hike for the FOMC meeting in March.

Due to the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) and US Treasury’s intervention in the financial system to save Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank, XAU/USD benefited from a weaker US Dollar earlier in the Asian session.

 The market has experienced the SVB fallout because of the United States (US) rising borrowing costs, which are damaging financial health.

Given that the price of gold is inversely connected with US Treasury yields and that gold is sensitive to the shorter end of the yield curve, the XAU/USD pair is displaying some strong upward momentum in the aftermath of dropping yield.

Last Friday, following the announcement of the Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP), the shorter end of the yield curve experienced a significant decline. The number of new jobs was larger than anticipated, yet the unemployment rate increased to 3.8%. The market has seen Friday’s NFP as being cautious and chaotic. The US Dollar as well as equities systems around the world are under a lot of pressure because rates are declining globally, particularly at the shorter end of the US Treasury yield curve.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) data is scheduled to be released by the US economy on Tuesday, but it appears that the market is not looking forward to the approaching CPI event. The market dynamics will probably continue unstable until the FOMC Meeting on March 22 because we are now in the Fed’s “blackout” phase.
