Last week, spot gold prices rose 1.4 percent to trade at $1316 per ounce while MCX gold prices declined 1 percent although rupee depreciation of around 0.9 percent cushioned sharp downfall. Spot silver prices declined around 4 percent to close at $16.5 per ounce in line with fall in gold and base metals prices while stronger dollar index also exerted downside pressure on silver. Stronger US dollar and lofty bond yields have dampened the interest in bullion for traders and investors across the globe. Growing supply of US government debt and inflationary pressures from ris-ing oil prices have pushed the yields on the 10 year bond yields above 3 percent for the first time in four years.
LME Copper prices plunged 2.6 percent while MCX prices fell 2.3 percent last week as dollar surged to three and half month highs buoyed by rising bond yields above 3% for the first time since 2014. The rise in yields was a result of expectations that the Fed would raise interest rates more aggressively to combat inflation. Further downside was limited as failed negotiations at Escondida mine in Chile and Gras-berg in Indonesia, world's biggest Copper mines, supported the red metal. Alumin-ium led the losses in base metals, down by a whopping 10 percent last week, after the US extended deadline given to American customers of Rusal to comply with the sanctions, from June to October 2018. Nickel was the second worst performer since the fears of sanction extension to Norilsk Nickel eased.
WTI oil prices declined by around 0.8 percent last week while MCX oil prices rose marginally by 0.2 percent in the same time frame. Risk of renewed U.S. sanctions on Iran, plunging Venezuelan output, and robust global demand shook off the ef-fects of a strong dollar on oil prices.
