12.11.2015 - Traders are waiting for news on US crude oil inventories

The price of gold continues to consolidate after the sharp fall in the previous weeks caused by the strengthening of the dollar amid rising probability of the Fed raising interest rates. The tightening of monetary policy in the United States was negatively displayed on the attractiveness of investing in gold, compared with fixed income assets. In addition, the rise on the stock markets and reduced fears about the Chinese economy led to a drop in demand for safety assets like gold. Support for gold in the near future will be an increased demand in India and China, which is caused by the holiday season. These two countries together consume more than half the world's gold. The situation at the moment uncertain, and we are waiting for new signals on gold.
