Recall, the Federal Reserve during the two-day meeting to determine policy on Sept. 17 reduced its bond-buying program by $ 10 billion on the way to its full completion in the next month. The Fed also reiterated that rates are likely to remain unchanged for a "long time" after the completion of the program, although the predicted faster pace of rate hikes.

Meanwhile, today in his speech the head of the New York Fed, William Dudley said that there is no need to hurry with the increase in interest rates, taking into account the weak economic growth and inflation expectations at low levels. He suggested that now it is better to wait for the more obvious signals that the economy is recovering United States, before taking action. However, he noted that "low interest rates are not satisfied with the Fed," and that they should be raised as soon as possible.

"Investment flows are directed to the dollar, as well as in the stock market and the bond market is the United States, and is the outflow of the precious metals market, - says Peter Hug from Kitco Metal. - It seems that investors in precious metals have surrendered. "

In such circumstances, there is a sharp decline in investment demand for gold.
