Analyst View:

Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: “US November producer price index report showed a rise of 0.8 per cent from October and a rise of 9.6 per cent, year-on-year. Gold prices pushed lower on account of increasing inflation. All of the major central banks are holding monetary policy meetings this week and after inflation report it’s most probable that Fed will hike rates and take a hawkish stance. Gold prices are under pressure on this anticipation and may remain weak for few trading sessions.”
