Gold on Wednesday 15th March 2017, Gold prices down by -91pts (-0.32%) & closed at 27985 trading range between 27907-28054 and April Comex Gold futures closed at $1200.70, division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Gold prices were little changed on Wednesday ahead of the Federal Reserves expected rate hike later yesterday, while a slump in the dollar provided respite for the yellow-metal.
Overnight, the market noted the widely expected fed rate hike of 0.25% on Wednesday by the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee (FOMC), which marked the highest Fed Funds rate since October 2008, with up to three increases seen this year.
Golds wavering comes as investors refuse taking risks or making new decisions ahead of the Feds expected rate hike, as the economy reaches the banks employment and inflation targets.
On the other hand, the dollar fell against a basket of currencies after rising for two sessions, as consumer prices rose less than expected last month, but dollar’s fall failed to underpin the precious metal due to Feds expectations.
