Gold prices hedged up during early Tuesday trading, with the precious metal finding support amidst the US dollar losses of the last few sessions. The price action of gold has in recent times been, to a large extent, determined by the oscillations in the value of the greenback, due to its inverted correlation with the currency. After last week, when the Fed hiked interest rates by 75 basis points, other central banks and authorities around the world have been telegraphing inflation related concerns, hinting at the need to further tighten policies, while doubts remain over how hawkish the US Federal Reserve is prepared to be. Against this background, the markets will listen attentively to Jerome Powell’s testimony to the US senate later this week.

European Shares

Shares climbed higher in Europe on Tuesday, extending gains registered during the Asian trading session, as risk aversion mood takes a break.

Even if the mid-term investing landscape remains blurry to most market operators at the beginning of this summer season, some investors looking for opportunities to buy shares at a discounted price have been reassured after President Biden said a recession wasn’t “inevitable”. Furthermore, the fact central banks are moving quickly towards a super hawkish stance in order to tame inflation is also perceived as good news by some, on the short-term at least. However, questions remain about the mid- to long-term economic outlook and traders around the world are highly likely to pay close attention to this week’s macro developments with the Senate and US House testimony from Jerome Powell, the ECB bulletin as well as major data such as the US jobless claims and Eurozone PMIs. Industrial shares are among the top performers today in Europe, boosted by soaring industrial metal prices. Markets are likely to be volatile as US investors are coming back from a long weekend, Bond markets are likely to set today’s pace on stocks.

The STOXX-50 index trades back above the 3,500pts level with 3580pts as its next resistance. The RSI shows a bullish break-out while the DMI indicator displays a dropping bearish pressure.
