Gold Price Today: Precious Metal’s Price In US, Dubai, India, Singapore

Gold Price Today: Gold rate ticked higher in the early morning trading session on Monday amidst mixed global cues as the weaker dollar made bullion relatively less expensive for international buyers. Noticeably, today’s gain in Gold prices was limited by the prospects of further interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve the next year. Last week, the U.S. central bank increased interest rates by 50 basis points, making it the seventh rate hike in 2022. Fed has indicated that it will continue with its rate hike spree to bring down inflation to the target range.

Spot gold was up 0.1% at $1,794.60 per ounce as of 0226 GMT. U.S. gold futures jumped 0.2% at $1,804.00. The dollar index slipped 0.1%.

Gold, perceived as a safe-haven asset, is usually considered a hedge against inflation as well as economic uncertainties. However, rising interest rates tend to dent bullion’s appeal as the precious metal pays zero interest. There have been instances where prices appear detached from the safe-haven status when factors like Fed policies come into the picture.

Gold was trading on the higher side on the first day of this week when the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) opened. As of 11:21 AM on Monday, Gold February futures jumped 0.12 % at 54365.00 per 10 grams.
