Prices of gold and silver on the international market:
According to Reuters, gold was flat on Thursday, maintaining near a one-week low set the previous session, after the Federal Reserve agreed on rate hikes in March, which pushed up US Treasury yields and the dollar.
According to the most recent metal report, spot gold remained constant at $1,817.29 per ounce, close to a one-week low of $1,814.51. Meanwhile, U.S. gold futures fell 0.7 percent to $1,817.20.
Notably, while gold is regarded as an inflationary hedge, it is particularly susceptible to rising US interest rates, raising the opportunity cost of keeping non-interest bearing bullion.
Furthermore, spot silver fell 0.4 percent to $23.40 per ounce.
