Fundamental Report: Gold markets were a little positive during the trading session on Thursday, even though it was very thin and limited Thanksgiving trading. As the market guessed earlier, FOMC Meeting Minutes reveal that interest rate hikes will continue in smaller portions. The majority of Fed officials agreed that it is better to raise interest rates in smaller increments than the last four rate hikes. There are two primary techniques or tools they use to achieve their goal of reducing inflation to its target rate of 2%. One technique is by adjusting the money supply by buying or selling assets from their balance sheet. Their asset balance sheet includes U.S. debt instruments and mortgage-backed securities (MBS). However, the primary technique they use along with another powerful option i.e. adjusting their benchmark “Fed funds” interest rate. The Federal Reserve has completed seven of the eight yearly meetings and except for January has raised its Fed funds rates at each consecutive meeting. The Fed has raised rates by 75 basis points at each of the last four consecutive meetings (June, July, September, and November), taking their benchmark rate from between 0 and 25 basis points in March to its current rate which is between 375 and 400 basis points.

Gold markets gapped higher to kick off the Thursday session, and then rose slightly even though it was Thanksgiving in the United States, therefore trading hours were limited and volume of course was thin. The minutes revealed what market participants have been already anticipating which is that the Federal Reserve will begin to reduce the amount of each rate hike beginning in December. According to the CME’s FedWatch tool, there is an 80.5% probability that the Federal Reserve will raise its Fed funds rates by 50 basis points in December. The pace at which the Federal Reserve has been raising rates can be best described as extremely hawkish and aggressive with consecutive large rate hikes for the last four meetings. Market participants and economists have been voicing concern that the Federal Reserve has been overly aggressive risking a hard landing. As reported by Reuters News service, Tai Wong, a senior trader at Heraeus Precious Metals in New York said, “Gold traded higher in a relief rally after the Fed minutes contained no hawkish surprises, and just about confirmed the pace of hikes would drop to 50 bps in December. Furthermore, he added, “The financial markets are convinced the Fed is overtightening so it is dovish interpreting the minutes which contains no real surprises given Fed commentary the past two weeks.”
