On the news, the exchange rate of the pound against the US dollar soared, while the US dollar fell under pressure due to the remarks of the new British Prime Minister Sunak. The U.S. economic data released yesterday showed that the recent performance of the U.S. economy was slightly weaker. After the data was released, the US dollar fell rapidly, and the market bred the sentiment that the interest rate hike would hurt the real economy, which led to the cooling of expectations for the Fed to raise interest rates. At the same time, the Fed issued a signal that it may intervene in the U.S. Treasury market, which led to a drop in the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond.
Technically, in the daily chart, yesterday, affected by the fall in the yields of the US dollar and US bonds, the price of gold rose sharply by more than US$20 in the short-term. . In the 4-hour cycle, the previous K-line closed out a doji, the current market saw a short-term rise, the Bollinger Bands opened up, and the KD indicator was dead. In 1 hour, the market started an upside based on the position of the middle rail, the Bollinger Band expanded, and the KD indicator was golden.
