Fundamental View
Monetary policy in the United States is likely to keep the US dollar weak. The US Federal Reserve has hinted at keeping US interest rates low for the next 2 years till 2023. According to Fed’s chairman Powell, the U.S. labour market is far short of where it needs to be to start talking about tapering. As a result, interest rate in the US is likely to remain low in the immediate future with the US Federal Reserve keeping its dovish stance. This is likely to take away the big interest rate advantage that had kept the US dollar strong in the past few years.

Beside ultra-loose monetary policy, the Federal Reserve is likely to embark on a prolong program of bond buying to keep interest rates and yields low. US benchmark 10-year Treasury yields seems to have peaked at 1.776%. 10-year Treasury yields is currently hovering around the 1.60%. With the peak in Treasury yield, the US dollar might have lost a key reason for its rally.

A US stimulus relief package has been passed by Congress and this has helped the US economy to recover from the coronavirus pandemic. Together with COVID-19 vaccination, a stronger recovery in the US and global economy have led to surging crude oil as well as metal prices. This is likely to fuel inflation especially when the Federal Reserve is keeping to its dovish stance. This has led to demand for Gold as a hedge against inflation.
