Domestic gold prices showed a slight dip in rates after the yellow metal touched its 2-1/2-year low on Monday in international markets mostly due to a stronger dollar and prospects of further interest rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve. India's gold prices were Rs 50,200 for 10 grams of 24-carat gold. The price for 10 grams of 22-carat gold was Rs 46,000. The silver prices were at Rs 56,300 per kg.

On Monday, the gold futures dipped by 0.8 per cent dip and were recorded at Rs 49,362. Silver futures however fell sharply to Rs 55,714 per kg, down about 1 per cent.

In the international market, gold prices have taken a hit, majorly pulled down by a firmer US dollar and aggressive stance on interest rates to tame inflation. In global markets, Spot gold gained 0.6% at $1,631.89 per ounce, as of 0103 GMT. Prices hit their lowest level since April 2020 at $1,620.20 on Monday.

Gold's future

In the last few months, the yellow metal has seen a lot of turmoil in its prices with an upside bias as geopolitical tensions have gripped the world.

On Monday, OECD said global economic growth is slowing more than it was forecast a few months ago in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, as energy and inflation crises risk snowballing into recessions in major economies. Fed officials on Monday sloughed off rising volatility in global markets, from slumping US stocks to currency turbulence abroad, and said their priority remained controlling domestic inflation. Rate hikes increase the opportunity cost of holding bullion, which pays no interest while boosting the greenback.
