Gold on MCX settled up 0.52% at 28785 amid ongoing political worries surrounding U.S. President Donald Trump that are expected to keep weighing on the dollar. The U.S Federal Reserve’s expected plans for rate increases may be too fast for an economy that has shown recent signs of weakness, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said, making the case for a continued go-slow approach as inflation progress stalls.
The metal advanced by 2.2 percent last week as the furor over U.S. President Donald Trump’s alleged links to Russia and his firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey raised concerns about his ability to push through promised fiscal stimulus.
That caused a rush to safe-haven assets such as gold and drove U.S. stocks, the dollar and U.S. bond yields lower, reducing the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion and making gold cheaper for holders of other currencies.
Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan, a voter this year on the Fed’s policy-setting panel, said on Monday the U.S. central bank should keep raising rates before year-end, though he was not yet ready to declare victory on inflation.
