Gold inches lower as prospects of interest rate hikes continue to weigh

“Gold inched lower as prospects of further interest rate hikes from the U.S. Fed continued to weigh on the zero-yielding asset’s appeal. U.S. inflation and signs of economic resilience in the country drummed up fears that the Federal Reserve will have enough economic headroom to keep raising interest rates. U.S. core capital goods orders accelerated in January, beating forecasts, and contracts to buy previously owned U.S. homes rose the most in more than 2-1/2 years in January. Money manager’s now expect the U.S. Fed’s target rate to peak at 5.405% in September, from a current range of 4.50% to 4.75%, giving a boost to the U.S. Yields as well. Market participants’ focus today will be on India’s GDP and US consumer confidence data. Broader trend on COMEX could be in the range of $1790-1830 and on domestic front prices could hover in the range of Rs 55,000-55,650,” said Manav Modi, MOFSL.
