UBS anticipates that the demand for gold from central banks will remain robust even after a record-breaking year of purchases. In 2022, central banks acquired 1078 tons of gold, marking the highest annual demand for this precious metal since 1950, more than doubling the previous year’s level. UBS also projects that the price of gold could climb to $2,100 per ounce by the end of this year and reach $2,200 by March 2024.

European indices concluded the trading week on Friday, May 19, with gains. The STOXX600 index climbed by 0.66% to reach 469 points, marking its highest level in a year.

The French CAC rose by 0.6% to reach 7,491 points, while the German DAX soared by 0.69% to hit an all-time high of 16,275 points. The British FTSE closed the session with a 0.19% increase at 7,756 points.

Dollar index (USDX)

On Monday, May 22, the dollar experienced further declines against the yen and the euro, prompted by unexpected setbacks in US debt ceiling negotiations and comments from US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell indicating a preference for a slower pace of interest rate hikes.

At the start of the trading week, the dollar slipped 0.15% against the yen to 137.725, breaking a six-day winning streak it had enjoyed and retreating from a six-month high. Meanwhile, the euro continued its upward trend, rising 0.14% against the dollar to 1.08205. This followed its rebound on Friday from a seven-week low.

Investors are now eagerly awaiting a crucial meeting between US President Joe Biden and Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, scheduled for Monday, to discuss the issue of raising the debt ceiling.

The dollar index, which gauges the performance of the US currency against a basket of six major currencies, experienced minimal fluctuations, reaching 103.07 points. It remains close to the peak of 103.63 points reached the previous week, which was last seen on March 20.
