Gold Price Today: The price of gold rebounded on Monday after the European Central Bank announced a 50 basis point rate hike on Thursday to tame inflation. This sparked a rally in the Euro taking some strength from the Dollar Index (DXY). A weaker US dollar helped the yellow metal rebound, said commodity expert Anuj Guta.
Selling pressure from gold and silver in global markets is keeping bullion prices on edge. The pressure is likely to continue in the short term, Gupta said. The price of gold fell 0.9% in the international market between Monday and Wednesday trading sessions this week, commodity expert Gupta said. Meanwhile, silver prices are down 1.20% over the period, he added.
The strength of the dollar index (DXY) is impacting its safe-haven appeal despite fears of an economic slowdown and geopolitical tensions, Gupta said. Gold should remain on guard as investors watch closely for the US Federal Reserve meeting scheduled for July 25-26.
Gupta, who is Vice President (VP), Commodities and Currency Research at IIFL Securities recommends a sell on MCX Gold and Silver Futures. Gold and silver futures prices rebounded in the evening session and this opportunity should now be used to book profits, the VP said.
