Last week, gold rose slightly, with the most significant increase coming on Tuesday after the US Services PMI.

As of Friday, traders were pricing in a 30% chance the Fed will raise rates this month, up from 24 percent a month ago. This comes after Boston Fed President, Eric Rosengren moved more firmly into the hawkish camp. Dallas Fed President, Robert Kaplan additionally mentioned on Friday that improved US economic data over the last few months strengthened the case for a rate raise. However, he mentioned the Fed can afford to be “patient and deliberate.”
