    • Gold & Silver Dip On Poor Global Demand

      The price of gold and silver fell due to a drop in demand after a strong showing by equity markets. The possibility of an interest rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve was a major reason behind the drop in demand from industry and retailers.

      MCX gold futures fell by 0.17% to trade at Rs.30,172 for 10 grams on 19 March, 2018. Silver MCX also dropped, falling by 0.25% to trade at Rs.38,263 per kg.

      The U.S. Dollar continued to capitalise on positive investor sentiment as markets expected an interest rate hike later in the week.

    • Increasing U.S. protectionism concerns cause gold prices to rise

      After the sudden firing of the U.S. secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, the gold prices have risen due to the increasing concerns about the adoption of protectionism policy by the U.S. which would affect penchant for risk globally.

      The price of spot gold rose by 0.12% to $1,327.56 per ounce and at one point of time reached $1,329.22 during the session, its highest value since March 7. For the April delivery, the gold futures rose by 0.09% to $1,328.20 per ounce.

      On 13th March, Donald Trump fired Rex Tillerson due to numerous conflicts and disputes between them over a period of time on Russia, Iran and North Korea. CIA director and Trump loyalist Mike Pompeo has been appointed as the new secretary of state.

      “Pompeo is a supporter of Trump’s trade policy and could help advance his agenda of imposing it on U.S. trading partners ... all this uncertainty and risk aversion leaves gold as a safe haven option,” said OCBC analyst, Barnabas Gan.

      According to Gan, after the firing of Tillerson and replacing him with Pompeo would mean the avoidance of risk strategies in the current market. This leaves gold as the safe option of investment.

      The dollar had recently seen a surge in its value but after the incidents of the white house, the value of the U.S. dollar dipped against all the major currencies. When the dollar is weak, it makes bullion and in such a situation it is used as an alternate form of investment by people who hold other currencies.

      “With the U.S. protectionist rhetoric likely to ring equity market alarm bells, gold should continue to be an ideal hedge in this highly unpredictable environment,” said Stephen Innes, trading head at OANDA. On the contrary, Asian shares improved amidst increasing concern towards U.S. policy of protectionism.

      The expected increase in inflation will be steady as recently recorded data shows a decrease in the gasoline and rent accommodation prices in February which have led to a dip in the U.S. consumer prices.  

      Although if the inflation rate increase is more than the usual, it will elevate expectations for interest rates in the future putting pressure on the weak bullion.  

      The ANZ analysts were quoted in a note saying “the 0.2 percent increase in consumer price index suggests it won’t be enough to spur more rate hikes by the Fed than already expected.”

      According to Reuters analyst, Wang Tao, the spot gold may rise further to a value of $1,334 per ounce as it has already crossed a barrier at $1,327.

      Other precious metals have also seen a rise in prices in recent days. The price of platinum increased by 0.3% to $964.50 per ounce and palladium increased by 0.1% to $991.47 per ounce.
