Hyderabad: The escalation of world’s worst trade war between the US and China has potential to engulf the entire world in due course. Therefore, not only developed countries like Russia, Britain, Germany and France are passing sleepless nights but also the emerging economies like India have been burning their mid-night oil to avert the gruesome situation.
Still, there was no panic in the global markets and it is unlikely that there would be a mad ‘gold-rush’ by the investors in a near future. The markets though marginally divergent are not volatile.
On the closing day, gold was traded at $1,256 (per Oz) while silver at $16.03. $ to Indian Rupee declined marginally and the $ was quoted at Rs 68.87. MCX gold closed at Rs 30,640 (per 10 gms) while MCX silver at Rs 39,830. Sensex and Nifty closed at 35,667 points and 10,773 points respectively. Brent closed at $76.53.
At home, the sentiment in both the precious metals remained moderate. During the week Standard gold (24 carats) and Silver (0.999) remained divergent.
