Fundamental Report: Gold traders are keeping an eye on the upcoming April U.S. consumer price index, which is a widely watched measure of inflation. According to economists polled by Dow Jones, they expect CPI to have risen 5% last month compared to the same time last year. They also predict a month-over-month gain of 0.4%. Investors will analyze the report for any indications on future Federal Reserve policy moves. Currently, traders are only predicting a 13.1% chance of another 25 basis-point rate hike next month, according to the CME Group’s FedWatch tool. On Friday, yields increased following stronger-than-expected job growth in April. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 253,000 nonfarm payrolls were added, exceeding the anticipated 180,000 by Wall Street. The unemployment rate was also below expectations at 3.4%, making it less likely that the Federal Reserve will stop its aggressive tightening campaign. This policy shift is something that many on Wall Street had been hoping for. Last week, prices tumbled as the U.S. Labor Department released the nonfarm payroll jobs report which revealed that the labor market is robust as well as resilient considering the massive campaign by the Federal Reserve to slow the economy by raising rates to over 5% in just over a year. These reports beat estimates and suggests that the economy in the United States continues to be strong with 253,000 new jobs added last month. The report also showed that the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% down 0.1% when compared to the prior month. In addition, the report revealed that wages rose. The unemployment rate of 3.4% matches January’s level with both months being at a level not seen since 1969. According to the New York Times, “Job growth was broad-based, even if less vigorous than the eye-popping numbers of 2022 when the nation was rapidly digging out of a deep pandemic deficit. Leisure and hospitality added 31,000 jobs, down from a 73,000-job average over the past six months but another step toward its high in early 2020.”
