FOMC Minutes Unlikely to Leave Significant Signal on Gold
Now that concerns about the conflict in the Middle East have eased noticeably, the outlook for US interest rates has regained center stage for Gold. Against this backdrop, the minutes from the latest FOMC meeting, which will be released today, are likely to , are of interest.
The fact that for many FOMC members, another rate hike is not yet off the table could be reflected again in the minutes.
