“Gold started the year steadily, but bullish momentum has picked up significantly, posting gains of around 14 per cent year-to-date in the domestic market" MOFSL said in its report.

The report also highlights the astounding growth registered by Silver this year, having already gained upward mobility of 27 per cent returns year-to-date in 2024.

Silver prices reached an all-time high of 97,100 in the local market on Wednesday, while gold prices increased by 250, reflecting strong trends in overseas markets, as reported by HDFC Securities. Extending its gains for the third consecutive session, silver surged by 1,150 to 97,100 per kg, up from 95,950 per kg on Tuesday.

In the futures market, silver also achieved a record peak of 96,493 per kg on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) on Wednesday.

What's driving the rally?

According to MOFSL, market participants are closely watching the US central bank for hints regarding potential interest rate cuts, which has been keeping them on edge. 

Despite expectations for rate cuts earlier in the year, hawkish comments from Fed officials have tempered those beliefs, leading to a reduction in anticipated rate cuts from over four to approximately two for the year 2024. However, the firm believes that probability of a Fed rate cut has shifted gradually from March through May and June, and now to September 2024.

“Geopolitical tensions have added to the risk premium for gold as concerns about debt pose long-term challenges to overall growth. The economic indicators from the US continue to show strength in the economy. Additionally, along with central bank buying, festive and wedding-related domestic demand could boost sentiment. It says that although ETF buying is struggling, investment and central bank buying are maintaining strong demand momentum," said Navneet Damani, Group Senior VP – Commodity Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
