Gold continues to come under pressure as dollar dynamics uncertain

Spot gold rallied on Monday (July 18) as the dollar index hit a one-week low of 107.18, further off last week near a 20-year high of 109.303. Several Fed officials hinted last week that they were not in favor of accelerating the pace of interest rate hikes this month. The Fed has entered a period of reticence ahead of this month's policy meeting. If the Fed ultimately proves to be duplicitous, it will be interpreted by outsiders as a medical emergency and damage the Fed's credibility.

This month's survey conducted by the Wall Street Journal showed a 49% chance of a recession in the US economy over the next 12 months. Some 46% of economists expect the Fed to raise interest rates excessively and cause unnecessary economic weakness; 12.3% believe the Fed will raise rates inadequately, and 42% say the Fed will raise rates by a moderate margin to balance inflation and growth.
