Gold prices in the international markets and in India is growing due to inflationary pressures. After the US Fed's November FOMC meeting Jerome Powell on interest rate stated, "The Committee decided to keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4% and expects it will be appropriate to maintain this target range until labor market conditions have reached levels consistent with the Committee's assessments of maximum employment and inflation has risen to 2% and is on track to moderately exceed 2 percent for some time." Not just US Fed, other major central banks of European countries are also worried about inflation. But they agreed that an interest rate hike might be detrimental to the economic recovery now.
Analyst Gary Wagner, commenting on the gold price hike told Kitco, "The bullish market sentiment for gold due to the high inflation levels had a much more pronounced effect than the strong jobs report which resulted in gold opening at $1792 and closing at $1820. The exceedingly strong jobs report and the dramatic rise in gold pricing over the last two days indicate that traders and investors are much more focused upon the current level of inflation than on additional jobs being added in the United States."
