Investors are waiting for the statistics unleashed in the USA. In particular, data on January inflation will be publicized on Thursday. Many analysts consider that it will continue to grow. They predict January inflation to pick up 0.3 percentage points from December’s consumer price growth to 7.3%, the highest inflation rate in the US in nearly 40 years. If the statistics are in line with the forecast, then the demand for gold will increase.
