Analyst and Head of Research at Monex Investindo Ariston Tjendra said today’s gold price movement was influenced by the pressure sentiment on the US dollar. This is because the US consumer confidence index fell to 84.8 in August 2020. In fact, last July the US consumer confidence index was in the position of 91.7.
“This survey is to the US public regarding the outlook for US economic conditions in the next six months,” he said, Wednesday (26/8)
In addition, the market is still skeptical about the continuation of the US-China trade agreement, because the relations between the two countries have become increasingly tense lately. Ariston predicts that the price of gold in the spot market will accelerate in the range of US $ 1,915 to US $ 1,940 per troy ounce today. “The market is also still waiting for the gathering of high-ranking central bank officials around the world and awaiting a speech from the governor of the Fed maybe on Thursday or Wednesday,” he said.
