Inflation is the key driver of gold rates now in the international markets. Gold is a hedge against inflation and the rise of the precious metal is rising. E. B. Tucker, Director of Metalla Royalty and author of "Why Gold, Why Now?" told Kitco News, "6% is only the beginning. It's going to go much higher, it's not transient. None of these people are going to lower prices, this is here to stay."

Supply-chain bottlenecks are hiking the inflation rate in the USA, while consumer demand is improving, with monetary support by the US Fed. Wages of the employees are rising too, but the pace of growth is not impressive. It is getting challenging for the Fed to control the inflation rate because they do not want to hike the interest rate. So, gold rates, along with other assets are rising globally, which is impacting Indian markets similarly.
