Gold prices fell to a new 2-1/2-year low on Monday, weighed down by a sturdy dollar and prospects of further interest rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve to bring down inflation. Spot gold was down 0.3 per cent at $1,638.59 per ounce, as of 0053 GMT, after hitting its lowest level since April 2020 earlier in the session. US gold futures fell 0.6 per cent to $1,645.8.
Even though gold is seen as a hedge against inflation, higher interest rates increase the opportunity cost of holding bullion and boost the dollar.
Meanwhile, 1 kg of silver in Mumbai, Delhi, and Kolkata was trading at Rs 56,300. In Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad, one kg of silver is selling at Rs 61,500.
Spot silver fell 0.8 per cent to $18.68 per ounce.
