Why Gold Went Down 40 Dollars In One Day

Apparently people still think the Federal Reserve is serious about raising interest rates because you had Jeffrey Lacker coming out this morning and saying that the Federal Reserve needs to be preemptive when it comes to inflation fighting, not really wanting for it to heat up. This is really absurd because if the Federal Reserve wanted to be preemptive it would have raised years ago and they would now be much higher than they are.

Again, I think this is all talk. But apparently the markets have not figures this out yet and gold went down 40 dollars because it thinks the Federal Reserve is about to raise interest rates.
