Global Covid-19 cases continue to rise, led by daily records in the US, on track to exceed 60,000 infections per day. Healthcare experts believe the country is headed towards more than 100,000 daily cases over the next few weeks. The global economic fallout keeps safe-haven demand elevated. Central banks continue to expand quantitative easing measures, keep interest rates at record lows, and governments issue more debt to stimulate the economy.
As the pandemic depresses ecoomic activity, the majority of the public disregards warnings from healthcare officials, ignores social distancing, and refuses to wear face coverings. It allows the virus to spread quickly, which harms global economic output. Hopes for a V-shaped recovery have been reduced, but politicians including US Vice President Pence vow to continue opening the economy. Gold is advancing, and traders will focus on July's economic data moving forward.
