Gold prices steadied around $1,790 an ounce on Friday and were on track for a fourth straight weekly rise, underpinned by a sharp retreat in the dollar following the release of lower-than-expected US inflation numbers for July. This has prompted expectations that the Federal Reserve will tighten less aggressively, with markets now pricing in a higher chance of a 50-basis point rate hike in September versus earlier speculations of a 75-basis point increase. Safe-haven demand for the metal also jumped recently due to simmering geopolitical tensions between China and the US over Taiwan and a highly uncertain global economic outlook. Meanwhile, investors remained cautious as US policymakers indicated their commitment to keep raising interest rates until they see compelling evidence that inflation sustainably declines.
