On Tuesday, gold prices are in the red zone (-0.5%) due to rising global stock indices. The American stocks became a driver for the entire market, reaching new highs on Monday. Investors react positively to the publication of macroeconomic reports from the United States, which indicate a good state of the economy. Indices growth traditionally leads to a decrease in demand for gold and other protective assets.
Today, investors will focus on the speech of Jerome Powell, Chairman of the US Federal Reserve, addressing Congress. At the last meeting, FRS leaders decided to leave interest rates unchanged and continued to take a wait and see attitude. Investors will be waiting for signals from Powell about further plans for the implementation of monetary policy.
A speech on the ECB's head, Christine Lagarde, may also have some effect on the market. According to Bloomberg, Lagarde may provide information on the Central Bank's new development program.
