Gold prices gained as the dollar weakened after the U.S. Federal Reserve paused its monetary tightening cycle. The Fed held U.S. interest rates steady but said it would be patient in lifting borrowing costs further this year as it pointed to rising uncertainty about the economic outlook.
Meanwhile, attention turned towards the U.S. and China high-level trade talks that began on Wednesday, aimed at digging out from their months-long trade war. Investors are worried that Washington’s criminal charges against Chinese company Huawei and its chief financial officer could hurt the talks.
A surge in gold purchases by central banks to the highest since 1967 helped push global demand for the metal up 4 percent last year, the World Gold Council (WGC) said. The world consumed 4,345.1 tonnes of gold in 2018, up from 4,159.9 tonnes in 2017, the WGC said in its latest quarterly demand trends report.
Driving the increase were central banks which bought 651.5 tonnes – 74 percent more than in 2017 and the second highest annual total on record – as countries including China and Poland joined Russia, Turkey and Kazakhstan in adding to their reserves, the WGC said.
Underscoring investor interest in gold, holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, were at their highest since June. SPDR gold holdings have climbed 4.6 percent so far this month, the biggest monthly gain since September 2017.
