Speaking on reasons for dip in gold price, Vipul Srivastava-Research Analyst at Religare Broking Ltd said, “Gold prices took a breather after a series of gains witnessed in recent weeks. The mighty dollar found the spotlight as it surged close to two-decade highs again with the central banks betting big on interest rate hikes in their battle against runaway inflation. Also, a plunge in energy prices along with industrial metals will likely provide some respite from soaring inflation, which again dented the appeal of bullion. However, worries of a global economic slowdown capped the downside in the precious metal, which gains traction as a safe haven.”
