In early Monday trading, 1.8 million ounces of gold were sold within one minute, significantly moving the price of the bullion downwards. It is unclear who sold off such a large chunk of gold and why. However, analysts are still bullish on gold because of economic uncertainty worldwide specifically regarding the Italian bank bailouts, Brexit, and the Trump Administration’s policies.

Besides for the early Monday selloff, gold remains relatively steady as investors await US job data to be released later this week. Gold rose for three consecutive sessions last week with a weaker dollar bolstering the price of the precious metal. Additionally, James Bullard, the president of the St. Louis Fed said on Friday that the Fed should wait to see the effects of interest rate increases before raising them further later this year.
