The international market, particularly the United States, has inclined towards the stability of the US dollar and gold due to the unpredictability in the global economy. Rafizi pointed out recent events, including the bankruptcy of Silicon Valley Bank, conflicts in the US Congress regarding debt ceiling increases, and newly implemented federal spending cuts.

This delay could be attributed to the country’s focus on general elections.
