Yesterday's statements by the Fed representative Lael Brainard suggesting preservation of the low interest rate in the United States, has suspended the fall in the financial markets, which has continued since last Friday until Monday morning. The price of gold has rebounded from the support level of 1324.0 (Fibonacci 38.2% to the decline since October 2012) and started to rise since the opening of today’s trading day. It is likely that the price of gold cannot determine movement direction due to contradictory statements of the leaders of the US Fed about the future of the interest rate in the coming months and weak American macro-economic statistics.
