“Nonetheless, the Fed’s affirmation that it will be sticking to its preset hiking path prompted the market to revalue lower the strike level on any potential Powell-put — which ultimately helped the greenback strengthen and challenged gold prices.”

“With tail-risks out of the way, we would not be surprised to see gold length resume its downward trajectory for now.”
