  • The yellow metal edged higher on Monday from an 11-month low as the dollar dipped and oil prices rose after the Federal Reserve signalled an aggressive interest rate hike later this month.
  • There are many benefits of investing in gold as it is highly liquid and protects your investment and creates wealth in the long run.

The yellow metal surprisingly saw an uptick from an 11-month low as the dollar dipped and oil prices rose further. This was on the back of the news that the Federal Reserve signalled a second consecutive aggressive interest rate hike of 75 basis points later this month, which has hit the investors' expectations.

Traditionally, gold is viewed as a safe haven, especially in a volatile environment. The UK inflation rate has touched a record 9.1% and with the prediction of it reaching up to 11% later this year, investors may turn to gold as an inflationary hedge.

During the harsh economic conditions, the currency's value depreciates relative to the yellow metal, thus creating a perception of safety among investors. Recently, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned that it will cut its global economic growth outlook for this year and later this month.

The gold future had risen by 0.53% to US$1,712.50 an ounce at 2:22 AM (GMT+1) after falling to its lowest in nearly a year last week. Meanwhile, GBP to USD currency rates stood at 1.1884, up by 0.29%.
