Gold moves up overall
On Wednesday, the US dollar approached the 100 mark due to hedging demand, and gold fell slightly, but held above the 1700 mark. The cost of obtaining dollars in the market is still very high, and the shortage of dollars has not yet been completely resolved, which has caused the alternating strength of gold and the dollar to happen from time to time. But overall, gold is still generally on the upside, as the gloomy retail sales and industrial output data show that the downward pressure on the US economy has increased. At the same time, the wave of global easing will further reduce the cost of holding gold.
