COMEX Gold futures are invariably linked to this easy US monetary policy dynamic and saw some buying after the Fed policy minutes yesterday indicated continued lax monetary outlook for the worlds largest economy.

The US dollar fell under 92 mark in last session, testing nearly three month low. The US dollar index is lingering at 92.05 right now, up marginally on the day. Global equities were mixed today but did not fall even after a slide in US stocks last night. In US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 index closed lower on Wednesday as mounting US layoffs in the wake of new mandated lockdowns weighed on sentiments.
