GOLD (XAU/USD) - "Gold prices fell for the second consecutive week with the precious metal down 2.67% to trade at 1201 ahead of the New York close on Friday. Bullion is down more than 5% off the yearly high and has been fueled by expectations for higher borrowing costs from the Fed. Heading into next week, the quarterly FOMC policy meeting will be central focus with gold approaching key near-term support targets of interest."

GOLD (XAU/USD) - "Gold prices are higher this week with the precious metal up more than 2% to trade at 1229 ahead of the New York close on Friday. The rally marks the first weekly advance this month and comes alongside a sharp sell-off in the greenback and while the near-term picture may see prices struggle, the technical implications suggest gold may have turned a corner. However with the committee’s outlook broadly re-affirming expectations for three rate hikes this year, the greenback seems to be faltering - for gold prices, a softer dollar and an uptick in the central bank’s Core PCE (Personal Consumption Expenditure) projections were just the trigger needed to fuel a recovery as prices responded to a key support zone noted last week. Looking ahead to next week, event risk simmers down a bit with February Existing Home Sales & Durable Goods Orders highlighting the U.S. economic docket."

GOLD (XAU/USD) - "Looking ahead to next week, traders will be eyeing the third and final read on U.S. 4Q GDP with consensus estimates calling for an upward revision to 2% from 1.9%. Aside from the economic docket, look for a fresh batch of Fed rhetoric to drive USD / Gold price action with Chicago Fed President Charles Evans, Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan, Chair Janet Yellen, Fed Governor Jerome Powell and Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari slated for commentary next week. Markets are priced for three hikes in 2017 and for gold, the fuel for a sustained push higher could be sparked by either a shift in the Fed’s tone or a broader turnover in equity markets- (note the SPX posted its largest weekly loss since November this week)."
