Gold Prices Slip in Trading

By Mala Yachts Staff -March 28, 2023

Gold prices slipped during trading hours today, as the yellow metal lost about $1.1 in spot transactions. However, contracts saw a rise after incurring sharp losses yesterday. As of 10:59 am Emirates time, the price of gold fell by 0.06 percent, or the equivalent of $1.13, to reach $1955.33 an ounce. Despite this dip in prices, gold contracts for April 2023 delivery increased by 0.11 percent, or the equivalent of $2.15, to reach $1973.55 an ounce.

This decline in gold prices can be attributed to a strengthening US dollar and rising bond yields. Investors tend to shift their focus towards these assets during times of uncertainty and market volatility, as they offer a safer haven for their funds. Additionally, the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the economy also continue to influence market sentiment.

Meanwhile, other precious metals also experienced losses during trading hours. Silver fell 0.37 percent to $23.05, platinum fell 1.01 percent to $975.9, while palladium fell 1.16 percent to $1,400. These losses have come amid growing concerns about the potential impact of rising interest rates on the demand for these precious metals.

Despite these fluctuations in prices, gold continues to be a popular investment choice for investors looking to diversify their portfolios and hedge against inflation. Analysts suggest that gold prices could see a rebound in the coming weeks as the global economic outlook becomes clearer.
