In the overseas markets, spot gold at Comex was trading at USD 2,310 per ounce, down by USD 9 from the previous close.

Silver was also quoting lower at USD 27.15 per ounce. It had closed at USD 27.25 per ounce in the previous session.

“Gold prices are consolidating in a range so far in the week amid lack of fresh triggers, as market participants look for more incoming data to gauge the outlook on the future interest rates. The recent US macro data have come in weaker than expected – showing signs of a slowdown, which has led to rising bets for an early rate cut by the US Federal Reserve.

“The Middle-East geopolitical issue is already priced in. However, the bullion remains supported by demand from central banks, who are diversifying their FX reserves with gold,” Pranav Mer, Vice President, EBG – Commodity & Currency Research at JM Financial Services Ltd, said. (PTI)
