what the experts say

Jatin Trivedi, VP Research, Commodities and Currency Analyst at LKP Securities, said gold prices were trading in a tight range after a slight decline in the beginning. The change was mainly due to a stronger US dollar following strong non-farm payrolls data. On Monday, the rupee fell by 10 paise to close at 83.50 (provisional) against the US dollar.

Trivedi said China could also suspend its gold purchases, suggesting prices of the yellow metal could remain under control for some time. He said traders will now turn their attention to the upcoming US political decision and CPI data due out on June 12, which may further impact gold prices.
