USD/ INR: Oil Prices
The WTI futures fell by 2 cents and was at USD 37.28 a barrel by 01:10 GMT after increasing by 3.5% yesterday. On the other hand, Brent futures for November decreased by 0.2% and was at USD 39.98 per barrel. The decrease in prices resulted from an unexpected rise in the US stockpiles owing to the lack of oil demand. The increasing number of coronavirus cases has slowed down recovery in many parts of the world.
USD/ INR- Gold Prices
Gold prices further fell on 11th September. Accordingly, October gold futures fell by 0.9% to Rs. 51,306 per 10 grams on the multi-commodity exchange. Similarly, Silver futures fell by 1.5% to 67,970 per kg. In the international market, spot gold traded at $1,947.41 per ounce, decreasing by 0.3% from the previous session. The dollar strengthened later in the day and held gold back, but the prevailing economic uncertainty capped losses on gold.
Gold prices may remain volatile as the US Dollar and the global equity markets look for some direction. But, the economic uncertainty and geopolitical tensions between the US and China and the concerns over Brexit will contribute to gold’s haven appeal.
