The biggest catalyst that drove down the price of gold is the Fed’s decision to raise interest rates by 0.25% at their June meeting that took place on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. Immediately following Wednesday’s 3:00pm announcement of the interest rate hike, the price of gold plummeted.

The bullion is strengthening going into Monday trading because of uncertainty of what the outcome will be of the British meetings in Brussels that begin today to discuss the terms of Brexit more clearly and in more detail.
