The Fed's "hawkish tilt made the bond market scramble this week and that chaos has been supportive for the dollar, which was terrible news for bullion," he said. August gold fell $5.80, or 0.3%, to settle at $1,769 an ounce, the lowest finish since April 30. Prices based on the most-active contract lost 5.9% for the week, the biggest decline since the week ended March 13, 2020, FactSet data show.

Dow futures sink over 300 points as Fed's Bullard estimates that initial rate increase could happen in late 2022U.S. stock-index futures saw losses deepen Friday morning as St. Louis Federal Reserve President Jim Bullard said, during a CNBC interview, that the central bank could lift benchmark interest rates, which currently stand at a range between 0% and 0.25%, as early as late next year. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were down more than 300 points, or 1%, at 33,366, those for the S&P 500 index were off 0.8% at 4,180, while Nasdaq-100 futures were trading 0.6% lower at 14,068. The Dow and S&P 500 are headed for weekly declines, while the Nasdaq Composite Index was headed for a weekly gain after the Federal Reserve delivered its most recent policy update on Wednesday. Bullard's comments mark the first from a Fed member since the conclusion of its rate-setting meeting. Bullard is not currently a member of the Federal Open Market Committee, which helps to set rates. Bullard told CNBC that he thinks "it's natural that we've tilted a little more hawkish to contain inflationary pressures." He also said that comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell have opened the door to tapering the Fed's $120 billion montly asset-purchases, which include $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities.
