Will Gold Price in India Jump in the Near Future?

Gold is traditionally considered as a hedge metal against inflation. The US consumer price index soared 7.5 per cent in the 12 months through January, biggest yearly increase 1982. The surge in inflation boosted the yellow metal’s appeal amid a weaker dollar.The escalating tension between Russia and Ukraine also lifted the demand for safe-haven metal. The Ukraine conflict already spooked the global market. US equities had declined in the previous session.

The inflation data will increase the pressure on the US Federal Reserve to raise interest rate aggressively. Federal funds rate futures increased the chances of a 50-bps tightening by the US Federal Reserve at next month’s policy meeting following the inflation data, believed analysts.
