The gold price has rebounded while the US dollar weakened in the first few hours after the FOMC. After a long phase with very little volatility, investors are awaiting the price to breakthrough the key level of $1,475 in order to give bullion a more defined direction. Technically, the price remains in the lateral channel between $1,450 and $1,475 but with growing pressure on the upward edge. This confirms investors’ interest in bullion is returning on the day of the UK election and the meeting of the ECB.
