Gold and Silver's CPI Gains Fall as Fed Holds Rates Steady

The US Federal Reserve announced on Wednesday (June 12) that it will hold its benchmark interest rate steady at 5.25 to 5.5 percent following its two day Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting.

This marks the seventh time the central bank has maintained its policy since July 2023, when it last raised the rate.

The meeting occurred the same day as the release of May’s consumer price index (CPI) data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data shows a 0 percent change in CPI month-on-month, down from April’s 0.3 percent increase. On a 12 month basis, CPI saw a 3.3 percent increase over last year, a slight decline from April’s 3.4 percent year-on-year gain.
