The Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged and the central bank also downgraded GDP for the balance of 2019 and 2020. They see unemployment moving slightly higher. The Fed also changed its dot plots which are the future forecast of prices providing more than enough support for the yellow metal to shine.
