USAGOLD/Peter Grant/05-19-17

Gold is trading modestly higher after failing to sustain overseas losses. The yellow metal initially dipped to 1245.10 as the dollar staged a rebound, but the gains in the greenback could not be sustained.

Today’s U.S. calendar is empty, so focus will remain squarely on U.S. political turmoil, which is threatening to derail President Trump’s reflation agenda. In the absence of promised fiscal stimulus, the U.S. economy will likely remain confined to tepid growth and perhaps sets the stage for recession.

This will raise doubts at the Fed, as to their next policy move. Continued rate hikes into weak growth certainly heightens the likelihood of recession. How close to the tipping point is the Fed willing to go?

Geopolitical tensions are heightened today as well after U.S. warplanes attacked a pro-Assad military convoy. Both Syria and Russia have condemned the attack. Reports suggest that there may have been Iranian embedded with the Syrians as well.
