  • Dip buying in gold once again pushes the bulls towards $2050.
  • Fresh leg down in the US dollar, the main catalyst behind fresh highs.
  • Tumbling US yields, geopolitical concerns keep the bulls hopeful.

With ‘buy the dips’ emerging as the main underlying theme behind the gold (XAU/USD) price action so far this week, the bulls flex their muscles further to record fresh all-time highs near $2040.

The spot found solid support around $2010 level earlier in the Asian session after the profit-taking slide from the previous record high of $2031.20, as the buyers saw it’s as a bargain-hunting opportunity, with $2050 on their radars.

Fundamentally, the yellow metal continues to draw support from the crumbling US inflated-protected Treasury yields on the narrative of faltering economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic-induced massive GDP contraction.

The falling US Treasury yields, both real and nominal, continue to exacerbate the pain in the US dollar. At the time of writing, the US dollar index trades near fresh monthly lows of 93.06, down 0.27% on a daily basis.

Further, expectations that the US Congress will agree on a fiscal stimulus package also adds to the bullish momentum in the yieldless gold. Markets now await the US ADP jobs data for fresh hints on the official Non-Farm Payrolls due this Friday. Slowing jobs growth could likely intensify the US economic concerns, boosting the bright metal at the expense of the greenback.
