Commentary 31/07/2018

After an initial climb in gold's price, the yellow metal traded broadly lower for the remainder of the month. A decline in US Treasury yields boosted USD-denominated gold as signs of a potential recession hit the market. Needless to say, robust consumer and producer inflation reports in the US later supported two more rate hikes in the US. Furthermore, the threat of additional tariffs on Chinese goods to the order of $200 billion increased demand for the US dollar as a safe haven asset. Pressure continued on the precious metal following a hawkish statement by Fed Chair Powell at the Congressional Testimony. However, a series of tweets by President Trump helped gold to recover some of its losses. Trump tweeted his disappointment with the Fed's rising interest rates regime at a time when the economy is going so well. In this environment, the overlay programme fulfilled its objective by strengthening the hedge ratio as gold slid lower during the month.

(1) The rating grades the funds on a scale from 1 to 7. This rating system is based on the average fluctuations of the net asset value over the past five years. It corresponds to the variation range of the portfolio upwards and downwards. If the net asset value is less than 5 years old, the rating is determined by other regulatory calculation methods. Historical data such as those used to calculate the rating may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile. The current category is neither a guarantee nor an objective. Category 1 does not signify a risk-free investment.
