Metals market: Gold and Copper prices fluctuate depending on US data

YEREVAN, August 5. /ARKA/. Last week gold trading was marked by considerable volatility because of a string of important events which could change the mood of investors. The U.S. economic data was inconsistent. The initial assessment of the U.S. GDP level in the second quarter exceeded the expectations of investors, while the news from the labor market was mixed: the unemployment rate fell to 7.4%, but the data on the number of new jobs in the non-agricultural sector disappointed market participants.

Regular meetings of the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank (ECB) brought no surprises. The American regulator did not revise the interest rates, while purchases of securities n the U.S. still continues in previous levels because of high unemployment level despite the improving situation in the labor market. The ECB also preserved its monetary policy, after Mario Draghi made it clear that the super soft monetary policy will continue for a long time. As a result, after significant fluctuations the price of gold fell by 1.48% to 1310.97 U.S. dollars per troy ounce. The gold dynamics this week could be affected by economic data from the U.S. and the eurozone.

A string of important news is expected this week from China, which can also affect the price of gold, as China is one of the largest consumers of this metal. We would like to remind that Chinese economy has been experiencing a slowdown, so gold market may pay attention to its macro data.
