Daniel Pavilonis, senior market strategist at RJO Futures, said tomorrow’s CPI will be a pivot point for Fed policy. Gold has been an inflationary hedge, but it faces a 10-year yield battle.

    If inflation remains high and the Fed raises rates too quickly, gold may struggle. The upcoming U.S. consumer price index (CPI) data is expected to show inflation slightly accelerated in July to an annual 3.3 percent.
