All eyes are focused on the U.S. Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan policy decisions scheduled for Wednesday.
Those looking for a December rate hike are hoping the Fed delivers a “hawkish” tone in its statement. The general feeling is that if Fed Chair Janet Yellen wants to guide the market for a rate hike later this year, she’s going to have to be more specific in her assessment of the economy, rather than just saying the decision will be data dependent.
The consensus says the Fed will leave rates unchanged in September. This news will be bullish for gold.
BANK OF JAPAN:
The BOJ is expected to be more aggressive than the Fed. There is speculation the central bank may take interest rates deeper into negative territory. There is some controversy over this possible decision, however. Many traders feel that since lowering rates into negative territory in January hasn’t worked then why do it again?Oil and metal producers nevertheless remain supported and markets are going optimistic into this week’s key central bank decisions.Gold could rally if the BOJ lowers negative interest rates further. Gold traders like negative rates because it makes the precious metal a more attractive investment.
