September 29, 2015

Current trend

On Monday, the price of gold significantly fell despite a weakening in the USD. At the same time, commentaries of Fed officials point out that the interest rate increase is going to happen in the near future thus increasing demand for the Dollar. Last Thursday, the Fed Chair Janet Yellen confirmed that the regulator is going to continue with its monetary policy plans. Furthermore, at yesterday’s press conference one of the Fed members William Dudley stated that the rate could be increased on the October meeting, though experts consider the chances of that as very small.
