Gold futures are trading flat early Wednesday after bouncing off minor support the previous session following a report that showed a sharp rise in U.S. inflation data. The news didn’t surprise investors who had been anticipating a large number.

This encouraged investors to buy government bonds, driving down Treasury yields and consequently demand for the U.S. Dollar. As the greenback weakened, foreign demand for dollar-denominated gold rose.

At 08:32 GMT, June Comex gold futures are trading $1746.80, down $0.80 or -0.05%.

U.S. consumer prices rose by the most in more than 8-1/2 years in March, kicking off what most economists expect will be a brief period of higher inflation.
