Gold fell sharply because speculators continuously sold when they were expecting the US Federal Reserve (Fed) to continue raising interest rates by 50 percentage points in June. Hundreds of tons of gold were sold through the futures market for the past 3 weeks.
Gold fell as the dollar spiked to a 20-year high. The DXY index, which measures the volatility of the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, rose above the 104-point threshold.
Gold fell because the commodity closely related to gold, oil, fell rapidly. Oil prices Crude futures on Nymex fell below the threshold of $100/barrel.

Despite the decline, inflation remains at a very high level over the past 40 years. That shows, the Fed will continue with its plan to accelerate interest rate hikes as well as withdraw money.
Gold price forecast
History shows that gold benefits from geopolitical uncertainties around the world as well as high inflation. Gold is always a safe storm shelter.
However, in the short term, gold is under pressure from the Fed’s interest rate hike. An increase in US interest rates increases the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets like gold.
A strong dollar and high US bond yields put downward pressure on gold.
In the long term, many forecasts say that gold will soon rise again. Representative Barrick Gold shared on Kitco that gold will return to the threshold of $ 2,000 / ounce by the end of this year.
