    London spot Gold rose by 1.4% or $25 and closed at $1,817.57 an ounce, achieving the level in more than three weeks after U.S. Fed Chair Powell did not provide any clear guidance on the timeline for paring economic support at the Jackson Hole economic conference. For the week, London gold advanced more than 2%. The Fed Chair Powell said the Fed will likely begin to ease off its monetary stimulus packages but added that interest rate hikes are still off in the distance. At the same time, worries over the rapid spread of the Delta strain persisted, as some countries in the Asia-Pacific imposed fresh restrictions. MCX gold October future may appreciate as the dollar has weakened after Fed Chair Powell offered no signal on when the central bank plans to cut its asset purchases beyond saying it could be "this year" and indicated it will remain cautious in any eventual decision to raise interest rates. On Friday MCX Gold October appreciated by nearly 300 points hence we don't rule out possibility of a subdued start of week but eventually we expect MCX Gold October to appreciate to Rs. 47,700 per 10 gram Jigar Trivedi, Research Analyst- Commodities Fundamental, Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers

    Fall in dollar index, rise in US markets to enthuse bulls in India

    The much-awaited Fed commentary after the Jackson Hole Symposium has indicated that "it would be appropriate to start reducing asset purchases this year." But the Fed chief has hastened to add that there is much ground to cover before rate hikes. So, even though this can be treated as the beginning of normalization of the accommodative policy, the communication is smart enough not only to calm the markets but to enthuse it too. Consequently, the dollar index has slipped to below 93 and the risk-on in US markets has pushed the indices to record highs. This will enthuse the bulls in India too.
