COMEX gold trades 0.5% higher near $1783/oz after a sharp 4.7% decline yesterday when it slumped to April lows. Gold has edged up on dip buying and pause in US dollar’s recent gains, renewed virus concerns and mixed economic data. However, weighing on price is Fed’s monetary tightening expectations and weaker investor interest as is evident from ETF outflows. Gold is seeing some relief rally however general bias may remain on downside unless the US dollar corrects sharply.”

Gold prices traded firm with spot gold prices at COMEX were trading near $1786 per ounce in the morning trade. The yellow metal halted decline on Friday after falling nearly 5% on Thursday. Gold prices witnessed sell off on stronger dollar on US FED tapering signal. The FED hinted at a hawkish stance by 2023 which boosted buying in dollar with outflow from safe haven asset. Gold prices may see some pullback while short term bias remains bearish. We expect gold prices to trade sideways to down for the day with COMEX gold support at $1760 and resistance at $1800 per ounce. MCX Gold August futures support lies at Rs 46,800 and resistance at Rs 47.500 per 10 gram.

Yesterday, we noticed that gold prices corrected sharply on the back of an optimistic Fed view on US economy and expectation of hiking interest rates two times by year 2023. This impacted on dollar and bond yield increased sharply. Optimism on the US economy faded out safe haven demand of Gold and gold trading on 6 week’s low level. We are expecting for short term gold may trade lower however depreciation in rupee and higher inflation may curb the sharp fall in Gold. For Short term traders can go for a sell in gold at 47200 with the stoploss of 47550 for the target of 46500 levels. Prices are also correcting in the physical market as there is no marriage and festival demand. We advise investors to wait for a lower level to buy.

With the rise in US DOLLAR INDEX since a couple of days the bullions have seen a hit. We anticipated that the dollar index would rise and it happened as anticipated. The DXY is likely to extend its gain upto $93.5 in the short term as it has reversed from oversold territory. This indicates that the bullions will remain under pressure for the short term. Now, in the international markets, gold is expected to fall till $1685-$1650 in the medium term whereas in the short term it is likely to extend its fall till $1750. On the upside the is a resistance at $1866 in the medium term and till those levels aren’t taken off the short to medium term bias remains negative on gold. The MCX gold is likely to continue its fall till 46400 in the near term and once that gets broken it will correct till 43500 levels. On the upside the resistance is pegged at 48105 on immediate basis and till that is not overlapped the overall trend remains negative in the short to medium term.
