The ECB is set to end trillions of euros of asset purchases and cement a path to exiting eight years of negative interest rates at its meeting Thursday. Investors now speculate that an end to sub-zero policy could materialize as soon as July. Meanwhile, the Fed is expected to increase rates by 50 basis points at its June 14-15 gathering. The risk of an economic slowdown due to rate hikes across much of the world has spurred some investors to seek a store of value. The OECD said the global economy will pay a “hefty price” for the war in Ukraine encompassing weaker growth, stronger inflation and potentially long-lasting damage to supply chains, echoing a similar warning from the World Bank. MCX gold Aug may appreciate to Rs 51,150 per 10 gm.

Gold prices are slowly pulling upwards amid high inflationary pressure, geopolitical tensions relating to North Korea and global growth worries. The consolidation in gold may continue unless there are fresh triggers, however gains in US dollar and continuing Fed’s tightening expectations may keep pressure on prices.
