Gold Rises Noticeably Ahead of U.S. HPI, Richmond Manufacturing Index Data; $6+ Volatility Likely in Gold; Dec 28, 2021

U.S. Richmond Manufacturing Index Results

Today U.S. has scheduled to release HPI data at 1400 GMT/1930 IST and Richmond Manufactuirng Results at 1500 GMT/2030 IST. Here I am discussing only about the Richmond Manufactuirng Index data. It is derived via a survey of about 55 manufacturers in the Richmond area which asks respondents to rate the relative level of business conditions including shipments, new orders, and employment. Above 0 indicates improving conditions, below indicates worsening conditions. Tends to have a muted impact because there are earlier regional indicators related to manufacturing conditions.

Let’s see how Gold has reacted during the preivous data release:
