Gold Remains Slightly Volatile Ahead of U.S. Trade Balance data, $8+ Volatility Likely in Gold; Feb 08, 2022

U.S. Trade Balance

Today the only key indicator from the U.S. will be U.S. Trade Balance data scheduled at 1330 GMT/1900 IST. The goods portion has a muted impact because it’s a duplicate of the Goods Trade Balance data released about 5 days earlier. A positive number indicates that more goods and services were exported than imported. Export demand and currency demand are directly linked because foreigners must buy the domestic currency to pay for the nation’s exports. Export demand also impacts production and prices at domestic manufacturers.
