Gold prices push to $1,675 as U.S. core PCE rises 0.6% in August

September 30, 2022

NEW YORK (Sept 30)  Hotter-than-expected inflation data is providing some initial support for the gold market as prices retest the long-term support/resistance level at $1,675 an ounce.

Friday, U.S. Department of Commerce said its core Personal Consumption Expenditures price index increased 0.6% last month, up from July’s reading of 0.1%. Economists were expecting to see a 0.5% rise.

According to some economists, the rise in core inflation is an indication that rising consumer prices are becoming entrenched in the economy, which will provide further challenges for the Federal Reserve.

The gold market has seen a modest jump in initial reaction to the latest inflation data. December gold futures last traded at $1,675.70 an ounce, up 0.44% on the day.
