Gold eases as dollar rallies on hawkish Fed
Friday, 9 November 2018 18:14 WIB | PRECIOUS METALS |GOLDEMASEmas berjangka

Gold dipped on Friday, on track for its biggest weekly fall since August, as the dollar rose towards 16-month highs after U.S. Federal Reserve stuck to its tight monetary stance and looked set to deliver another rate hike in December.

Spot gold was 0.3 percent lower at $1,219.5 per ounce at 1028 GMT, having touched its lowest since Nov. 1 at $1,217.20.

Gold is down 1 percent for the week so far, which would be its biggest decline since the week of Aug. 17.

U.S. gold futures fell 0.4 percent to $1,220.3 per ounce.

Spot gold touched a peak of $1,243.32 on Oct. 26, its highest since mid-July.

The dollar firmed towards a 16-month high underpinned by a robust U.S. economy and rising interest rate environment, making bullion more expensive for holders of other currencies.

Rate increases also pressure gold prices by increasing the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion.

The Fed held interest rates steady on Thursday, having hiked rates three times this year but remained on track to keep gradually tightening borrowing costs, even one in December because of U.S. economic strength, rising inflation and solid jobs growth.
