Gold awaits US Q1 GDP

The investors now await the US Q1 GDP figure, which would provide an insight into whether or not the US economy is strong enough to withstand a rate hike in 2015. The second estimate of the US Q1 GDP is expected to show a downward revision to -0.9% from the preliminary estimate of 0.2%.

In the meantime, the movement in the USD index and sentiment in the major European equity markets could continue to influence the metal.
