Comex Gold declined by 0.25% in Tuesday’s session as traders waited for more clarity on monetary policy after the central bank struck a hawkish tone last week. From day’s low point Comex Gold rebounded marginally as US Fed Chair Jerome Powell promised not to raise interest rates too quickly based only on the fear of coming inflation. The dollar retreated even after US reported better-than-expectation sales of existing homes in May. (Actual 5.80M vs. forecast 5.72M). On the domestic front, MCX Gold for August future closed at Rs 46,011 per 10 gram down by Rs 63 although rupee weakened sharply. MCX BULLDEX June future closed at Rs 14,495 down by Rs 37.
