With the tensions remained high in Ukraine, gold price are still showing as bearish. This is mostly due to low inflation rate of UK and of Euro zone, plus encouraging US economic and corporate releases.

Additionally, economic growth had slowed in China in the 1st quarter of this year, which made the gold less attractive.

In my view, it has expected to rise further until political unrest eased between Ukraine and Russia.

Furthermore, Fed Chairwoman Janet Yallen’s speech also helped to ease worries about an early interest rate rise in US.
