Gold price maintains an upward movement vector amid growing fears regarding the global economy prospects. Major stock indexes today moved into the red trading zone, after reports of unsuccessful trials of a new anti-coronovirus drug. Gilead Sciences discontinued vaccine testing ahead of schedule due to inefficiency. Many investors hoped that the drug against Covid-19 would be quickly developed and the spread of the disease could be stopped. Restrictive measures would be lifted and the dynamics of the global economy would be V-shaped (a sharp slowdown and a quick rebound up).
Gold is also supported by active incentive measures taken by states and Central Banks. Recently, the US House of Representatives approved a new package of incentive measures with a net worth of nearly $500 billion. Data on the labor market indicates that the unemployment rate in the country can reach 20%, which will entail the adoption of new incentive measures by the FRS and the White House.
The restraining factor for gold remains unchanged - USD dynamics. The American currency remains a defensive asset and its appreciation somewhat limits the demand for precious metals. But in the long run, gold retains good chances for further growth.
