In his press conference this week, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell signaled that the Fed is nearing the end of its regime of hiking interest rates, especially as a new tightening of lending standards resulting from the recent banking system woes is equivalent to additional rate hikes.

A Fed pause is likely good for gold, as that will end/slow the rise in real interest rates. And should the Fed actually pivot, as the market is pricing in by summer, that should be even more favorable for precious metals prices, as real interest rates should be in decline then.

And of course, if the Fed's tightening efforts "break something" beyond the cracks that have recently shown up in the banking system, crisis fears should drive even more capital into gold.
