Golden Tuesday rose more than 3%!
The Fed unexpectedly cut interest rates by 50 basis points unexpectedly on Tuesday, but US stocks are still plunging, thus pushing gold up more than 3%. At the same time, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield fell below 1%, and the market bet that the Fed would cut interest rates by an additional 50 basis points. However, considering that the current market is in a turbulent period, the market may continue to sell gold to meet liquidity requirements. At the same time, some funds may also return to the stock market due to central bank stimulus policies, which will still partially limit the rise of gold in a short time.
