Israel news under scanner

pointing towards Israel-Hamas war for recent rally in gold prices, Prithviraj Kothari, National President at India Bullion and Jewellers Association (IBJA) said, "Gold prices have appreciated sharply from 56,000 to 60,000 in 10 days as an escalation in the Israel-Palestine conflict spurred concerns over a spillover into the broader Middle East region, which in turn fuelled demand for conventional safe havens. Investment demand and Physical Retail Demand is back, supporting the prices. The fundamental and technical landscape has improved with a long-term bullish view. I expect prices to trade at least 10 per cent higher from current levels by next year, so auspicious day like Dusshera is the best time to buy Gold."

US dollar to INR

"We expect Rupee to trade with a slight negative bias as escalating tensions between Hamas and Israel may continue to deteriorate global risk sentiments. US Dollar may bounce back as safe haven demand may come into play and crude oil prices may rise further on concerns over supplies. US 10-year bond yields may are at fresh cyclical highs and is near the psychological resistance of 5% levels. However, any diplomatic efforts to contain the conflict in the Middle East and RBI intervention may support Rupee at lower levels. USDINR spot price is expected to trade in a range of 82.80 to 83.50," said Anuj Choudhary, Research Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.
