In the global market, gold prices were flat on Friday but on course for their second straight weekly decline, amid concerns over major central banks potentially conducting large rate hikes to curb runaway inflation weighing on precious metals demand, the news agency said Reuters reported.
Spot gold was little changed at $1,822.70 an ounce by 0724 GMT after hitting a weekly low of $1,820.99 earlier in the session. U.S. gold futures fell 0.3 percent to $1,824.10, the report said.
Commenting on precious metals prices, Nirpendra Yadav, Senior Commodity Research Analyst at Swastika Investmart, said: “As the US Dollar Index rose 0.25 percent and selling pressure on higher levels due to aggressive monetary policy from the US Federal Reserve is evident, the Gold Price Comex holds its support level. However, the benchmark Treasury yield continued to decline on Tuesday, falling 3.5 percent and supporting gold prices at lower levels. When prices move towards resistance levels, selling pressure can be seen at higher levels. Gold’s MCX resistance sits at Rs 51,100 while its MCX support sits at Rs 50,200. Silver support is at 59,000 rupees while resistance is at 60,500 rupees.”
