  • US Nonfarm Payrolls (Friday, December 8th at 13:30 GMT)

The United States will be releasing nonfarm payrolls and unemployment. Nonfarm payrolls have been trending lower recently, while unemployment has been inching higher. If the Nonfarm payrolls continue to fall while unemployment rises, there could be extended US dollar weakness and may push gold higher.

  • US Inflation (Tuesday, December 12th at 13:30 GMT)

The United States will report its CPI for November. October CPI came in at 3.2%, Year-over-Year, well below its peak of 9.1% peak in 2022. Inflation continues to fall, with levels approaching the Federal Reserve’s 2% target. The lower inflation could be positive for gold, as the US dollar could weaken.

  • US Federal Reserve Interest Rate Decision (Wednesday, December 13th at 19:00 GMT)

The Federal Reserve Bank will meet on December 13th to set the Fed Funds rate target. According to the most recent estimates, analysts are expecting the Federal Reserve to hold interest rates at the current level of 5.50%. Jerome Powell will hold a press conference following the Interest Rate decision at 19:30 GMT to answer potential questions and clarify the Federal Reserve’s stance on interest rate policy.
