Gold: Prices driven almost entirely by US Dollar movements – CIBC


Katherine Judge and Taylor Rochwerg, analysts at CIBC, point out that a weaker US dollar on the horizon prefaces higher gold prices. 

Key Quotes: 

“The correlation between the price of gold and DXY has strengthened over the course of the past year, but at the same time, other traditional drivers of gold – inflation and interest rates – have become less important in guiding gold prices.”

“Our forecast for a weaker USD over the course of the year should therefore work to extend gains in gold, while a relatively stable interest rate and inflationary environment should work to limit volatility in the price of gold.”
