Gold fell to its lowest level in four weeks on Monday, extending a sell-off into a fourth straight session as investors feared the Federal Reserve would hike US interest rates this year.
The technical picture for gold has deteriorated, with traders warning of further price drops. Physical demand and investor flows have also not supported the metal.
Spot gold had eased 0.2 per cent to $1,139.93 an ounce by 0348 GMT, after earlier dropping to $1,134.60, its lowest since Oct. 5.
Gold had rallied last month on speculation that the softness in the global economy could prompt the Fed to delay the rate hike to next year. But the US central bank’s hawkish tone last week triggered a sell-off in bullion.
Technical selling and liquidation of long positions were sending prices lower, according to HSBC analyst James Steel.
“Gold probably needs moderately better emerging market import demand if it is to sustain a rally. In the near term, the market also needs a respite from investor liquidations if prices are to stabilise,” Steel said.
