Gold hedging demand boosted
On May 14, the US dollar index refreshed its highest point since April 24 to 100.56. Trump said that it is a good time for the US dollar to be strong. However, as US stocks rebounded sharply, the US dollar gave up most of the increase. Spot gold rose more than $ 20 at a time, refreshing its three-week high to $ 1736.55 per ounce. Investors worried about long-term economic weakness and trade tensions, which boosted the safe-haven demand for gold. US oil June contract soared 10%, reaching a new high of nearly 27.96 US dollars / barrel in the past month, due to unexpected reductions in U.S. crude oil inventories last week and IEA’s reduced demand drop forecast.
