Today EU GDP data came out and according to reports, "The GDP number came in better than expected and for both Y/Y and Q/Q." Additionally, Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union stated, "household final consumption expenditure had strong positive contributions to GDP growth in both the euro area and the EU." This slightly impacted gold demand across the international markets, according to industry insiders.
Since the last few days, global gold rates started to hike as the US employment data was not as good as was expected, moving investors to take shelter in gold. Today the market is going down by a tad. However, the delta variant Covid is rising across the globe including the US and Australia. So, the economic stimulus is not anticipated to shrink and the interest rate will possibly be the same for the upcoming few months. The gold rates thereby are expected to gain steady again in the international markets again.
