The week commenced with the gold rate in India holding at Rs.38,300 per 10 grams on 14 October 2019 after an increased appetite for riskier assets surged amid the renewed trade deal optimism in markets. This led to prices dropping by Rs.10 per 10 grams from the previous session.

The next day, however, witnessed investors banking on safe-haven investments such as gold and silver following a lack of clarity the Sino-US trade dispute. Strong global demand, compounded by positive market cues led to gold prices in India surging by Rs.310 to Rs.38,610 per 10 grams on 15 October 2019.

Though gold rates plummeted to Rs.38,300 per 10 grams on 16 October 2019 on account of the stronger equities market, prices rebounded to Rs.36,610 per 10 grams on 17 October 2019 as equities and stock markets failed to capitalise on the Brexit negotiations.

Prices remained untouched for the next couple of days with uncertainties over the US-Sino trade dispute and the global economy capping further losses for the bullion.
