XAU/USD: Fundamental Analysis Report 17 May 2021


Current trend: the increase of demand instigates the asset strengthening.

Gold quotes continue corrective growth, trading at $1,855 per ounce. After the lifting of quarantine restrictions, the global demand for metals went up sharply, provoking price growth. 

At the moment, industry leaders are beginning to actively recover from the consequences of the pandemic, increasing gold production, which will undoubtedly affect the price of the precious metal. Yesterday, the South African statistics service published data on mining for March this year. According to official data, the figure rose by 21.3%, the growth of platinum ore production was 68.6%, and of gold – 10.5%. However, the volume of sales of the asset rose much higher, at 61.3%. 

Thus, the strengthening of world metal production and the current negative trend in the US dollar contribute to the positive dynamics of the instrument.
