Gold Falls to Two-Week Low as Fed Raises Rate, Sticks to Outlook

Spot gold fell to the lowest in more than two weeks after the Federal Reserve raised its benchmark lending rate and maintained its outlook for additional tightening.

Policy makers agreed on Wednesday to raise the rate for the third time in six months and kept to their outlook for one more hike in 2017. Officials set out some details for how they intend to shrink their $4.5 trillion balance sheet this year.

The Fed also issued forecasts showing another three quarter-point rate increases in 2018, similar to previous projections in March, despite growing concerns over weak inflation. Disappointing economic data in the U.S. this quarter had fueled speculation that the Fed would move more slowly on rates, helping underpin demand for bullion as a haven.

The Fed’s statement “appears more hawkish,” said Frank Cholly, a senior market strategist at RJO Futures in Chicago. “They are ready to start unwinding their balance sheet.”

Gold for immediate delivery fell as much as 0.7 percent to $1,257.28 an ounce at 3:29 p.m. New York time, the lowest since May 26. The metal rose as much as 1.1 percent earlier.

Gold bulls who bet that the U.S. Federal Reserve may take a more cautious approach in monetary tightening appear to be on the money, judging by the latest batch of disappointing economic data.

Figures released Wednesday showed the U.S. consumer-price index unexpectedly fell in May, while retail sales slipped the most since the start of 2016, helping gold end its longest losing streak in three months. Even before the data that sent the dollar tumbling, investors already poured $675 million into SPDR Gold Shares last week, taking total bullion holdings in the largest exchange-traded fund backed by the metal to a six-month high.
