Market Overview

Gold prices dipped in Asian trade, pulling back from recent highs as investors await U.S. labor and inflation data, impacting interest rate outlooks. Despite earlier gains from Middle East tensions, gold’s buying momentum waned, and profit-taking emerged.

Copper’s rally to 15-month highs cooled, with a slight fallback in prices due to profit-taking, although it remains near its peak, influenced by China’s economic prospects and supply considerations.
