Gold near one year low

Gold is lingering at its lowest level in almost a year on Wednesday, awaiting crucial US consumer price data for further cues. The yellow metal stays bounded near the flat line at $1725 an ounce, a level not seen since August 2021. A brief pause in dollar rally is also likely to keep gold supported. The International Monetary Fund on Tuesday warned that avoiding recession in the United States will be "increasingly challenging" as it again cut its 2022 U.S. growth forecast to 2.3% from 2.9% in late June as recent data showed weakening consumer spending. The Fund also cut its 2023 real GDP growth forecast to 1.0% from 1.7% on June 24, when it met with U.S. officials for an annual assessment of U.S. economic policies.
