Initially expected in June 2024, rate cut speculation heightened after release of strong inflation figures, prompting expectations for announcement during upcoming Fed meeting scheduled from April 30 to May 1, 2024.

Despite elevated dollar & US benchmark treasury yields, gold futures rose to fresh record high in early Asian trading, surpassing $2400 per troy ounce levels.
