“The Federal Open Market Committee meet outcome has triggered surge in 10-year US bond yield and rise in US dollar which weighted heavily on gold.
Fundamentally we are of the view that rising inflation and rising interest rates mean economies are stronger, suggesting more consumer and commercial demand for metals and also needs to keep in mind that problematic inflation has historically been bullish for yellow metal, as a hedge against rising prices.
At current level of $1775 an ounce, gold is in oversold zone and one daily positive closing will help gold to again regain $1850 mark,” said Sandeep Matta, Founder, TRADEIT Investment Advisor.
