The gold and silver prices in India depend on several factors, including the value of the rupee against the dollar. Global demand also plays a key role in determining the trends observed in the rate of precious metals.


Gold prices on Friday were on track for their biggest weekly loss since February, as prospects of additional interest rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve this year supported the dollar, pushing zero-yield bullion to an over three-month low, news agency Reuters reported.

According to the latest metal report, spot gold ticked down 0.1 per cent to $1,911.32 per ounce by 0246 GMT, and was down 2.4 per cent for the week. U.S. gold futures edged lower 0.1 per cent to $1,921.20.

“Gold has extended lower out of the range that it was occupying for a few weeks, suggesting there is more weakness ahead. The decline matches up with the upshift in yields, reflecting hawkish comments from Powell & Fed officials more generally,” Ilya Spivak, head of global macro at Tastylive.

Among other precious metals, spot silver fell 0.5 per cent to $22.1238 per ounce.
