Gold Prices Witness Upward Trend; Check Rates in Delhi, Mumbai and Other Major Indian Cities

Gold prices on Friday continued its climb for a second week with as data in the US economy flared expectations that the Federal Reserve could possibly ease its aggressive pace of increasing interest rates from December onwards. The growing interest rate in the US to control a historic 40-year surge in inflation has been building up pressure on gold, which is a non-yielding asset. The central bank is still expected to announce yet another 75 basis-point rate increase next week at its meeting. However, the Fed is also expected to slow this aggressive pace in December. Following the hope for a less hawkish Fed stance in December, Spot gold stood at $1,663.22 per ounce as of 0130 GMT, noting a gain of 0.4% for the week.
