Gold prices were flat near a seven-week low on Wednesday pressured by a rise in the dollar and US Treasury yields on growing expectations of an earlier-than-anticipated interest rate liftoff.
On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), October gold contracts were trading higher by 0.12 percent at Rs 45,910 for 10 grams at 0919 hours. September silver futures were up by 0.14 percent at Rs 60,551 a kilogram.
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has set the ball rolling for a Gold Exchange and approved the creation of a Social Stock Exchange (SSE). The board approved the framework for Gold Exchange under the SEBI (Vault Managers) Regulations, 2021.
"The precious metal along with equity markets tumbled after the comment of US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on not raising the debt ceiling in time. Gold registered double-digit fall breaching the key levels of $1750/oz and seems heading towards $1700/oz in near future," said Sandeep Matta, Founder, TRADEIT Investment Advisor.
"Gold outlook is not investment-friendly currently, however, we are reaching in the price zone where physical buying can be initiated for the extended period while setting aside the price action. The key level for gold August contract is Rs 45,871 with buy zone above Rs 45,900 for the target of Rs 46,150-46,285 while sell the zone is below Rs 45,855 for the target of Rs 45,725-45,500," he added.

The Fed Chair Jerome Powell remarks prepared for delivery to the Senate Banking Committee clearly cautioned that the causes of the recent rise in inflation may last longer than anticipated. Powell further added that the central bank would move against unchecked inflation if needed and contributed to the upward pressure on the US bond yields. These factors jointly pushed gold under renewed selling pressure.
