Prices may remain volatile

Bullion prices are likely to be volatile as a series of meetings by top US officials are scheduled in the next three days.

Later in the day, the US Fed Vice-Chairman will present his views on developments in the US economy. On Thursday, the US President will follow it up with his thoughts.

On Friday, the US Fed Chief, Mr Ben Bernanke, will address a conference on the US economic crisis and the effect of policy responses.

Analysts expect that the US Fed may go in for buying back bonds. If it happens, bullion prices may get a boost.
