Gold found support last week as Treasury yields, which move inversely to price, continued their decline after the 10-year rate hit a 3 1/2 year high earlier this month. Rising yields can be negative for gold as they increase the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding assets. A weaker dollar also helped gold by making commodities rated in this unit cheaper for users of other currencies.

Gold benefited last week “from the combination of falling interest rates (both nominal and real) and a pullback in the recent unrelenting dollar rally,” analysts at Sevens Report Research wrote in a note Monday. “Looking ahead, gold remains in a countertrend pullback in an otherwise bullish market, but we will continue to monitor real interest rates and the dollar as key drivers. If they make new highs, gold will find it very difficult to sustain above $1,800 an ounce.
