Market of metals: gold & copper prices fall amid strong USD

YEREVAN, October 29. /ARKA/. Last week quotes for precious assets, including gold, significantly slashed amid the U.S. strengthening. As a result, gold quotes reached a new seven-week minimum of 1,698.81 USD per troy ounce.

The new concerns about the situation in Spain and Greece, as well as weak economic data of Germany  forced the investors to buy the U.S. currency, as an asylum currency.
Prospects for the growth of the fourth largest economy of the eurozone and its financial situation came to the limelight after the Spanish regulator informed the recession in the third quarter may get even worse. In addition, Moody’s downgraded Catalonia and four other regions of Spain, discouraging the investors. The report presented by the three largest international creditors didn’t cast any optimism on the matter, as it stated that Greece would need additional 30 billion euros by the end of 2016 to offset the deeper than projected recession, and budget goals implementation deferred for 2 years.

Nevertheless, gold quotes attempted to rise last mid-week as the U.S. Federal Reserve  released a statement on monetary-credit policy, which met investors’ expectations. Eleven out of twelve Federal Reserve directors voted for sustaining stimuli measures to accelerate labor market rally. The falling USD and careful purchases at low prices have also fostered climb in gold quotes.
