Important News and Triggers
Rising Fed rate hike decision and Q2 GDP in focus
- International News – Gold price is reversing an early dip but remains cautious at the start of the critical Fed week. The rebound in the US dollar from over two-week lows capped the bullion’s ongoing recovery momentum. The greenback climbed on the back of renewed risk-off flows.
- Economic Data– Investors remain worried over a potential negative US GDP print in the second quarter, which would tip the world’s largest economy into a technical recession.
- Domestic News– Gold jewellery manufacturing units in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Coimbatore, Kolkata and Rajkot have cut work time to 6-7 hours from 8-10 hours earlier as demand had fallen by more than 60% after the government hiked import duty to 12.5% from 7.5% last month.
