The price of gold rallied nearly $70 in one day and then fell from the high, erasing most of the gains. Russian-Ukrainian tensions continue to play a major role in geopolitical risk; Russia “officially” invaded Ukraine; continuous updates regarding strikes and attacks heightened market distress. On top of that, the US and its allies have also reacted with more sanctions to punish Russia with “economic damage”. However, markets were expecting tougher sanctions, including Russia’s withdrawal from the SWIFT financial messaging system. On the other hand, after this chaos seen during the 1st half of the session, the United States announced a better than expected GDP, which shifted the market’s attention to the important Fed policy meeting scheduled. next month. Few Fed officials mentioned in their speech the risk of geopolitical tensions that could hamper the monetary policy decision, although investors anticipated aggressive rate hike action. A cautious approach is advised as further updates in geopolitical tensions could further increase market volatility. A broader trend on the COMEX could be between $1900 and $1940 and on the home front, prices could swing between Rs 50,500 and 51,600.

COMEX gold is trading slightly lower near $1915/oz, pulling back further from the September 2020 highs set in the previous session. Gold fell off the highs as risk sentiment stabilized as market participants weighed the impact of sanctions imposed by the United States and other Western countries in response to the onslaught of the Russia versus Ukraine. Falling crude oil and other commodity prices from recent highs have also dampened gold’s appeal as an inflation hedge. Gold has moved off the highs, but with the prospect of heightened tensions between Russia and world leaders, risk sentiment may remain low and that may keep gold supported.
