Reasons for the decline in rates

The decline in gold rates can be attributed to the hint of a hike in interest rates following the recent Federal Reserve meeting.

The possibility of a hike in interest rates makes financial instruments more attractive for investors compared to gold.

The earlier surge in gold rates was due to geopolitical tensions, especially in the Middle East over the Israel-Hamas conflict and the Russia-Ukraine war.

It remains to be seen whether the gold rates in Hyderabad and globally will continue declining or if the trend will reverse.
