Will prices of yellow metal fall below 70K mark?

Though it is unlikely to fall below the Rs 70 thousand mark in the near future, there is an expectation that the rates may increase, given that Middle East tensions still exist and the Russia-Ukraine war is ongoing.

Recently, Goldman Sachs, an American multinational investment bank and financial services company, raised the forecast for the price of the yellow metal to USD 2700 per ounce by year-end. This forecast was made when the price was around USD 2389.

If the forecast of Goldman Sachs turns out to be true, the rates of 10 grams of 22-carat and 24-carat gold in Hyderabad may cross the Rs 75 thousand and Rs 82 thousand marks respectively this year.
