The closely watched Core CPI also declined in April to -0.4% against the forecasted -0.2% and weighed on the US dollar. At 23:00 GMT, the Federal Budget Balance from the US showed a deficit of -737.9B against the forecasted -729.7BB and supported the US dollar. Another reason for the Gold surge was the renewed call for negative interest rates by Trump on Tuesday. In his tweet, Donald Trump said that the US should accept the gift of negative interest rates. He renewed his calls for the Federal Reserve to push rates further down. Federal Reserve lowered its rates near zero to reduce the economic destruction caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
