On October 26, 2023, the gold market exhibited notable resilience, defying the prevailing trends in the US Dollar and Treasury yields. Despite a stronger US Dollar in other sectors and a rebound in Treasury yields following a recent decline, the spot gold price surged, reaching new highs.

Market sentiment took a hit, leading to a reassessment of the overall outlook, particularly evident in the turmoil of equity markets. Safe-haven assets like gold and the US Dollar experienced gains amid this risk-averse environment. Concurrently, Treasury bonds and the Japanese Yen faced declines.

The USD/JPY pair breached significant levels, surpassing 150 and nearing 150.50 for the first time since the Bank of Japan’s intervention in the FX market a year prior, resulting in a 2% increase in Japan’s Nikkei 225 index.

Meanwhile, the Australian Dollar (AUD/USD) plummeted to its lowest point since November of the previous year despite signals from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) indicating an impending rate hike. Market interpretation of RBA Governor Michele Bullock’s comments at the Senate estimates hearing seemed to have led to this unexpected downturn.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index (HSI) experienced a decline after a brief rally, spurred by hopes of Chinese Government stimulus measures revitalizing the economy. Global equity markets faced pressure due to speculation that the Federal Reserve might reintroduce its tightening program following a series of robust economic data releases.

Meta exceeded earnings estimates in the corporate sphere, reporting a revenue of US$34.2 billion, slightly above the projected US$33.5 billion. However, Meta also expressed concerns about the economic outlook, tempering its positive financial report.

Crude oil managed to maintain its gains amid ongoing geopolitical tensions affecting the energy market.

Investor attention remained fixed on the European Central Bank (ECB) rate decision. Despite President Lagarde’s somewhat hawkish statements, the market anticipated maintaining the target rate at 4.50%. Notably, gold exhibited increased volatility, as indicated by the GVZ index, suggesting the possibility of significant price movements soon, akin to the VIX index’s role in gauging S&P 500 volatility.
