The April consumer sentiment number has been released, and it shows an uptick from March. Not only the sentiment numbee increased, but also inflation expectations. "Looking ahead, one-year inflation expectations rose to 3.1% in early May from 2.9% in April."
This result hasn't done much for gold, which endured a sharp drop just before the numbers were released. The release may have interrupted the drop, or coincided with a halt, but it had no effect otherwise.
