Pakistan’s market in Pakistan displayed minimal movement on a recent Tuesday, with the cost of 24-karat gold dipping by Rs100 to settle at Rs230,100 per tola. This marked a notable change in the market, breaking a 10-session streak of price increases for gold.

GOLD PRICE ADJUSTMENTS

For the first time following a remarkable 10 consecutive sessions of increases, gold prices experienced a downturn. This adjustment came after a significant surge last week, where 24-karat gold prices leaped by nearly Rs10,000 per tola, reaching highs unseen since September 2023.

The Karachi Sarafa Association detailed that the price for a 10-gram portion of 24-karat gold was adjusted down by Rs86, concluding at Rs197,274. Similarly, the cost for 10 grams of 22-karat gold witnessed a slight decrease, now quoted at Rs180,834.

SILVER MARKET STABILITY

Contrasting with gold, the silver market held steady. The price for 24-karat silver remained unchanged, sold at Rs2,600 per tola and Rs2,229.08 for a 10-gram measurement.

GLOBAL GOLD MARKET INSIGHTS

On an international scale, the spot gold price hovered around $2,177.14 an ounce, reflecting a minor dip of 0.26% compared to the previous session. Market observers are keenly awaiting the U.S. inflation data, anticipated to influence the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy direction.

MARKET STRATEGIES AND FUTURE OUTLOOK

Experts, including IG market strategist Yeap Jun Rong, suggest that the recent surge in gold prices might necessitate a period of stabilization. Financial markets are speculating on potential U.S. interest rate cuts, with expectations leaning towards three to four quarter-point reductions within the year, enhancing the attractiveness of non-yielding bullion like gold.

Moreover, the U.S. Treasury’s plan to auction $39 billion in 10-year notes later in the day adds another layer of anticipation for market movements.
