Gold prices rose on Wednesday, Gold prices got a fiscal booster shot after EU leaders agreed AZupon a history rescue fund deal. Gold’s rally accompanied with surging stocks, so if big tech earnings disappoint after the close, demand for safe-havens could remain strong.
Gold inched up 0.85 to $1859.65 at the time of writing.
Gold is at nine-year highs, rising to levels it has not hit since September 2011, with the precious metals lifted by an agreement on a fiscal rescue plan by European leaders and expectations for additional spending by the U.S. government.
European Union leaders ended a grueling four-day summit with an agreement on a €1.8 trillion ($2.1 trillion) budget and rescue-fund package aimed at shoring up the worst-hit economies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The EU deal also lent support to equities, with U.S. benchmark stock indexes headed higher on Wall Street. However, gold, a traditional haven asset, was also boosted on expectations fiscal stimulus efforts could stoke inflation and lead to a weaker U.S. dollar.
The U.S. dollar is hovering around four-month slows, lending support to gold. The U.S. Dollar Index is at 95.09, down 0.03%. A weaker dollar makes gold cheaper in other currencies.
Investors seem to look for a safe-haven as the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in the U.S. continues to climb, while the Congress struggles to agree on a new stimulus bill after the current one ends at the end of the month.
Continued turmoil in U.S.-China relations may also be supportive of gold. Relations took a turn for the worse this week after the U.S. Justice Department accused China on Tuesday of sponsoring hackers who are targeting labs developing COVID-19 vaccines on Tuesday.
