A Short Term Outlook: XAU/USD (Gold); March 31, 2022

Key U.S. Indicator To Keep In Mind While Trading In Gold During U.S. Session:

Today U.S. has scheuled to release U.S. Personal Income/Spending data at 1230 GMT/1800 IST and thereafter U.S. Chicago PMI 1345 GMT/1915 IST.

Income is correlated with spending – the more disposable income consumers have, the more likely they are to increase spending. Consumer spending accounts for a majority of overall economic activity. It’s one of the most important gauges of economic health due to the vast ripple effect consumer buying creates in the economy.

On the other end, Chicago PMI is a leading indicator of economic health – businesses react quickly to market conditions, and their purchasing managers hold perhaps the most current and relevant insight into the company’s view of the economy. It is derived via a survey of around 200 purchasing managers in Chicago which asks respondents to rate the relative level of business conditions including employment, production, new orders, prices, supplier deliveries, and inventories.

Let’s see how gold has reacted during the previous data release:
