Investing.com – Gold was down on Thursday morning in Asia. Investors are digesting the U.S. consumer price index (CPI), which suggested inflation remains high but has peaked in April, easing some concerns about more aggressive interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve.

Gold futures were down 0.01% to $1,853.58 by 11:12 PM ET (3:12 AM GMT). The dollar, which normally moves inversely to gold, edged up on Thursday morning.

U.S. inflation eased slightly in April but remained close to a 40-year high.

The CPI rose 0.3% month-on-month in April, the smallest gain since August, said the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics on Wednesday, compared with the 1.2% month-to-month surge in the CPI in March, the largest advance since September 2005.

The U.S. Federal Reserve raised its interest rate to 1% last week to cool inflation, the biggest hike in 22 years. Investors are concerned about the tightened policies from the Fed might induce a recession. The 10-year US yield extended a decline to 2.90%.

On the data front, the U.S. will release Producer Price Index and initial jobless claims later today. San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly will speak on the same day.

In other precious metals, silver inched up 0.1%. Platinum dipped 0.2% while palladium fell 0.7%.

High inflation with interest rates going up and gold barely holding or dropping. This isn't the expected outcome. We're going to crash with no safe haven. Higher interest rates will support the US $ and T-Bonds initially but will cause the cost of servicing the national debt go sky high and bankrupt America.
