Gold prices climbed over a per cent on Thursday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell turned less hawkish over rate hikes. However, silver outperformed the yellow metal with a wide margin.

Pritam Patnaik, Head – Commodities, Axis Securities said that gold prices rallied after the Fed event, primarily due to the fact that the 50 basis point rate hike was in line with expectations.

Rahul Kalantri, VP Commodities, Mehta Equities, said the outcome of the US Fed meeting dragged the US dollar index below the round level, but gold and silver prices jumped after Powell said the US central bank was not actively weighing a 75-basis point increase.
