Gold prices rose after the USD decline
The dollar index fell on Tuesday by 0.3%, extending its losses for the third consecutive day, reflecting the continued decline in levels of the greenback against a basket of major and minor currencies.
This decline comes in light of the positive sentiment that dominates investors, and the slowdown in demand for the US currency as the best alternative investment, especially after positive developments regarding political talks in the United States about the new fiscal stimulus program.
The US House of Representatives spokesman said on Monday that Nancy Pelosi and Steve Mnuchin ”Treasury Secretary” continued to narrow differences over the fiscal stimulus program through a phone conversation.
Nancy Pelosi said that by Tuesday ending there will be clarity on whether the Coronavirus Relief Bill can be passed before the November 3 presidential elections.
Gold holdings of the SPDR Gold Trust, the largest global index fund backed by gold, increased yesterday by 0.29 metric tons, bringing the total to 1,272.85 metric tons.
