The headline inflation measure is estimated to grow by 0.1% MoM and 3.3% YoY. The core inflation figures are forecasted to rise by 0.3% MoM and 4.1% YoY.

On Monday, the White House said US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping are set to meet this week on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. However, the renewed tension between the US and China might exert pressure on the US Dollar (USD) and benefit the gold price.
Furthermore, the geopolitical conflicts in the Middle East remain in traders’ focus. The rising tension could boost the safe-haven flow demand and lift the yellow metal.
