Gold Eyes 1680 ahead of G20
As the excesses of USD-bound safe haven flows hit a wall of data disappointments courtesy of a sub-50 composite PMI, gold extends its rally, picking the yen up along with it at the expense of new record lows in US bond yields. Now that Fed rate cuts are back on the table (they never left) as the US yield curve inversion deepens in 2 out of 4 measures highlighted here, USD traders shift attention from safe haven flows to Fed easing pricing (40% of July rate cut). Add to it the inevitable statements/misinterpretations/clarifications about USD strength at this weekend's G20 meetings of finance ministers and central bankers, and you're likely to see further playing out of gold appreciation a la 2011 analog in the charts below.
