Gold Price Today: Globally, Gold prices edged higher today (Friday); however, the price of the precious metal is set for a weekly loss in the wake of the recent interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Gold, considered a hedge against inflation, is mainly impacted by the strength of the U.S. dollar. The price of the yell metal are quoted in U.S. dollars; a firmer U.S. dollar usually keeps the price of yellow metal lower and more controlled. Similarly, a weaker U.S. dollar tends to drive the gold price by increasing demand (since more gold can be bought when the dollar is weaker).
As of 0230 GMT, Spot gold was up 0.2% to $1,780.63 per ounce. However, it was down almost 1% so far in the week. Meanwhile, U.S. gold futures rose 0.1% to $1,789.40. The dollar index fell 0.2%. A weaker dollar makes bullion more affordable for buyers from other countries.

After a deep sell-off in the previous session, the rupee fell further in Friday’s early morning trade. As per Bloomberg, the rupee was last at 82.83 per dollar, compared to its previous fall of 82.7625 on Thursday.
