Highlights

  • The price of yellow metal dropped to its lowest level since 17 March, trading at £1,586.
  • Many experts are now predicting that gold will slide further.

With the strengthening of the US Dollar in anticipation of an interest rate hike by the US Federal Reserve, gold prices witnessed a drastic fall on Tuesday. The price of yellow metal dropped to its lowest level since 17 March as it was trading at £1,586.

The drop is in anticipation that the Fed Reserve will increase the interest rate by 25 basis points when its monetary committee meets next month in June. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis data, the rate hike is on the back of a rise in US consumer spending. Consumer spending rose 4.4% from April 2022.

Many experts are now predicting that gold will slide further, and with silver’s inverse correlation with the dollar and Fed interest rates relative to gold, the price of metal may remain lull. With the concerns about the existing cost of living and inflation persisting, many investors may turn towards gold as a safe-haven. Investors often explore purchasing shares of gold firms in the hope that it may give better returns compared to physical metal.
