Commodity Samachar’s Future Outlook:

The FED meet has concluded and here’s a technical outlook from Commodity Samachar’s Head of Research, Ankit Kapoor. He said ” The FED has currently given a hawkish statement. We believe that there would be a maximum hike of 6% and not more than that, however, they will maintain higher interest rates by the end of 2024.

The US economy is currently doing quite well and we all have the same expectation concerning the mild recessions in 2024.

Moreover, we are expecting gold to trade within a range of 1930 – 2080 on the higher side at least till March 2024. Until and unless there is no major news outburst from developed economies this will be the forecast in gold.”
