Now, the worries about Omicron, the new Covid variant have been faded in the last 2 weeks, as the severity of the variant is not as high as the delta variant. On the other hand, traders and investors are showing a better risk appetite this week. Gold rates have mostly been static this week, stayed around $1782/oz level. However, the market of gold ETFs is getting better momentum.

Pharma firm Pfizer has also recently said that 3 vaccine doses can neutralize the Omicron Covid variant, and 2 can prevent serious impacts of the virus. So, a third wave of the pandemic is not expected, and investors are realizing that gold rates will not gain in the markets, based on the pandemic. Only a higher inflation level can push the gold rates up again if the US Federal Reserve fails to control it.


Analyst Jim Wyckoff told Kitco News, "Buying interest is being limited in safe-haven gold and silver as trader and investor risk appetite has up-ticked markedly the past few trading days. Rising bond yields this week are also a negative for gold and silver markets. However, selling interest in the metals is being squelched by the big rebound in crude oil prices recently, which suggests "black gold" and the leader of the raw commodity sector has put in at least a near-term bottom."
