Gold regained above $1850 on the weak USA dollar. It dropped sharply despite the hawkish USA-federal monetary policy. The US dollar index dropped to 103.41 yesterday and showed a minor pullback. Unexpected rate hike of more than 50bpbs by the Swiss bank also puts pressure on the yellow metal. It hits a high of $1857 yesterday and is currently trading around $1840.
