Latest gold, forex rates in UAE: Gold near 7-week high – Emirates 24/7

Gold was trading near a seven-week high on Monday bolstered by a weaker dollar and expectations the Federal Reserve will not hike US interest rates this year.    

Spot gold was little changed at $1,157.70 an ounce by 0346 GMT (7.46am UAE time), after gaining 1.6 per cent in the previous session. The dollar was close to a three-week low.     

The metal climbed to $1,159.80 on Friday, its highest since August 28, after minutes from the Fed’s September policy meeting showed that the US central bank was deeply cautious about tightening monetary policy.

Trading activity during Asian hours was thinner than usual with Japanese markets closed for a public holiday. US markets will also be shut on Monday for a holiday.     

Markets now expect the first US rate hike in nearly a decade in early 2016.    

A delayed rate rise could support non-interest-paying gold, although uncertainty over the timing could weigh on prices in the near-term.    

Hedge funds and money managers raised their bullish bets in Comex gold and silver to four-month highs in the week ended October 6, data on Friday showed, amid expectations the Fed will delay a much-anticipated rate hike.     

Also supporting prices was news from South Africa that the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union voted on Sunday to strike at the operations of AngloGold Ashanti, Harmony Gold and Sibanye Gold.
