Gold sees modest gains as crude oil rallies, U.S. stock indexes sell off

Kitco News

(Kitco News) - Gold prices are mildly higher in midday U.S. trading Wednesday. The yellow metal at mid-week is benefitting from the bullish elements of higher crude oil prices and a still-wobbly U.S. stock market. However, the bearish aspects of rising bond yields and a recent rebound in the U.S. dollar index are limiting the upside in gold. August gold futures were last up $5.60 at $1,857.70. July Comex silver futures were last down $0.048 at $22.13 an ounce.

Global stock markets were mixed overnight, with European shares mostly down and Asian shares mostly up. U.S. stock indexes are down at midday. The U.S. indexes are still shaky but have shown technical signs that near-term market bottoms are in place. However, bulls have not shown the power to start near-term price uptrends.

Two key data points of the week lie just ahead: the European Central Bank’s regular monetary policy meeting Thursday, at which the central bank is expected to lay out plans for tightening its monetary policy. On Friday the U.S. consumer price index report for May is set for release. The CPI is expected to be up 8.2%, year-on-year, after a rise of 8.3% in April.
