On Thursday (October 27), the initial annualized quarterly rate of real GDP in the third quarter of the United States recorded 2.6%, a new high since the fourth quarter of 2021. This data effectively alleviated recession concerns. The dollar index returned above the 110 level, the 10-year US bond yield fell below 4%, and spot gold fell 0.31% after surging. With the easing of worries about economic recession and the strengthening of the US Index, the trend of the Federal Reserve's interest rate increase will directly affect the gold price trend.
