Gold fell on Thursday as risk appetite recovered, but bullion was still on track for a weekly gain buoyed by safe-haven demand amid the Ukraine crisis and mounting price pressures, Reuters reported.
Spot gold eased 0.5 per cent to USD 1,967.90 per ounce, as of 0916 GMT, after a six-session winning streak. U.S. gold futures GCv1 dropped 0.6% to USD 1,973.00, this report said.
“The main move was on Tuesday when we saw the (U.S.) CPI (Consumer Price Index) numbers and although they were pretty much in line with expectations… gold still reacted to the order of $15-$20 or so, and has been consolidating since then,” this report said quoting StoneX analyst Rhona O`Connell said.
Gold has gained about 1.1% so far in the holiday-truncated week. Most markets will be closed on Friday for a holiday.
“One of the factors that has lent buoyancy to gold in recent days has been strong buying interest on the part of ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) investors,” Commerzbank analyst Daniel Briesemann said in a note. GOL/ETF
“We believe this is due to news about the Ukraine war – Russia appears to be preparing to launch a major offensive in the east of the country – that is generating considerable demand for gold as a safe haven,” Briesemann said.
Spot silver XAG= dropped 0.8% to $25.53 per ounce and platinum XPT= dipped 0.9% to $977.37, while palladium XPD= rose 0.9% to $2,354.54.
