Investing.com – Gold was up on Monday morning in Asia as some countries from the Group of Seven (G7) plan to ban bullion imports from Russia, which might tighten supplies.

Gold futures were up 0.37% to $1,837.05 by 11:59 PM ET (0359 GMT). The dollar, which normally moves inversely to gold, was down 0.2% on Monday morning.

As a way to tighten the sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, the U.S., UK, Japan, and Canada also plan to announce a ban on new gold imports from Russia during the G7 summit.

The G7 leaders plan to offer indefinite support to Ukraine in its defense against Russia’s invasion.

U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Mary Daly said on Friday that she supports another 75 basis-point interest rate hike in July while Fed Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard said fears of a U.S. recession are overblown.

The International Monetary Fund slashed its U.S. economic growth forecast on Friday, as aggressive Federal Reserve monetary tightening might cool demand, but predicted that the U.S. would “narrowly” avoid a recession.

SPDR Gold Trust, the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund, said its holdings fell 0.2% to 1,061.04 tons on Friday from 1.063.07 tons a day earlier.

In other precious metals, silver gained 1.08%. Platinum was up 0.58% while palladium jumped 0.73%.
