Gold had its biggest monthly range for the year in May moving up $134. The month saw continued USD weakness on the back of Fed rhetoric around inflation only being “transitory”. The market has started to believe the Fedspeak and drove commodities higher with continued strength in copper, iron ore and crude oil. Gold strengthened with limited retracement. Gold volatility (measured by GVZ) was steady around 16 for the month with a spike to 20 in late May taking gold $40 higher on the day.
