Bloomberg – Gold, little changed in London, may drop on lower demand for an inflation hedge after U.S. consumer prices posted their first annual decline since 1955.
The consumer price index fell 0.4 percent in March from a year earlier, the Labor Department said yesterday. That helped to ease concern that Federal Reserve actions to stimulate the economy will cause inflation to soar. Investors often buy gold as a hedge against accelerating prices.
