The gold price still lacks momentum and hangs on the $1750 mark at the moment. The Fed Reserve has announced after the FOMC meeting this week in the press conference to maintain the current monetary policy. Tapering is very likely to start this year, but interest rates will remain close to zero. With the announcement, the Fed remains true to its line and waits until the labor market figures meet the expectations. Whether the rising national debt is an advantage remains questionable. The market is content at the moment, however, because liquidity will continue to be available.
Asian investors, however, are more skeptical because of the threat posed by the Chinese giant Evergrande. The due bond payment was not made this week. The Chinese central bank has already prepared for the situation and started pumping liquidity into the financial markets.
Shares of gold producers remain cheap. A gold price just above $1750 lets gold producers generate a lot of cash flow.
