"Gold prices fall in a fourth straight session and tested $1,784 per troy ounce levels in the international markets amid strong gains in the US bonds. Gold prices fell to three weeks lows due to firm trend in the US bonds on expectations of interest rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve sooner than expected after re-appointment of Jerome Powell as Federal Reserve Chairman," said Manoj Kumar Jain, Director, Head-Commodity & Currency Research, Prithvifinmart Commodity Research.
International gold prices fell on Tuesday as the reappointment of US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell raised bets of faster interest rate hikes, said Sriram Iyer, Senior Research Analyst at Reliance Securities.
"The Dollar Index ended flat, while the benchmark US bond yields rose this Tuesday and continued to take support from news that Jerome Powell has been reappointed for a second term, reinforcing market expectations that US interest rates will rise in 2022. Markets will look to cues from data and testimony from Powell and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen before the Senate Banking Committee next week," said Iyer.
