Gold Futures Slide to One-Month Low Amid Waning Haven Demand

Gold fell to the lowest in a month after hedge funds pulled back amid waning haven demand and easing political uncertainty in Europe.

Money managers saw the move coming, and deserted the metal before the Federal Reserve raised U.S. interest rates for a second time this year, while holdings in the largest exchange-traded fund last week fell by the most in three months. Even analysts and traders surveyed by Bloomberg were bearish for a second straight week, a trend not seen since December.

Bullion has fallen 4 percent since trading at a seven-month high on June 6 after the Fed raised borrowing costs and reiterated its outlook for more rate increases through 2018. In Sunday’s vote, centrist French President Emmanuel Macron’s party and its allies won the biggest majority in the nation’s parliament in 15 years, boosting investor appetite for riskier assets such as stocks and curbing gold’s appeal.

“The market is tired after it had a big run-up,” Peter Thomas, senior vice president at Zaner in Chicago, said by telephone. “We’ve had an awful lot of buying off of the geopolitical situation and with the French election over, that’s now out of the way.”

Gold futures slid 0.8 percent to settle at $1,246.70 an ounce at 1:44 p.m. on the Comex in New York, after touching the lowest for a most-active contract since May 19.

Gold falls to lowest in more than three weeks amid risk-on sentiment as stocks climb in Asia and projections show the centrist party of France’s president winning a large majority in parliamentary elections.

Bullion for immediate delivery as much as -0.2% to $1,251.24/oz, lowest since May 24, and at $1,251.84 by 2:51pm in Singapore: Bloomberggeneric pricing; metal -1% last week

Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index little changed after -0.3% last week

MSCI Asia Pacific Index +0.5%

“Gold prices can be seen largely in a consolidation pattern with moderate risk sentiment within the market,” Jingyi Pan, a Singapore-based analyst at IG Asia, says by email
