Despite an international spot rate of $2,068 at the close, showing a $3 increase compared to the previous week, domestic gold prices faced a downside. The Middle East conflict concerns led to the safe-haven asset’s slight rise, but hawkish remarks from Federal Reserve officials limited the gains.

The Pakistani Rupee (PKR) marked its ninth consecutive weekly victory against the U.S. Dollar, strengthening its value. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) concluded the first review of Pakistan’s economic reform program, backed by the Stand-by Arrangement (SBA), boosting investor confidence. The relationship between domestic gold prices and the local Rupee is highlighted, as the metal, denominated in U.S. dollars, tends to fall when the home currency appreciates against the greenback.
