Gold finally managed to break $1800 yesterday after the disappointing U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index weakened the US Dollar. Hedge funds have also exited their short positions and increased their long positions ahead of Jackson Hole summit this week. Enthusiasm toward gold has grown by Hedge funds and retail participants due to doubts that the US central bank will take convincing actions to reduce its asset purchase program as the economy faces pressure from the fourth Covid wave. Gold’s net long position stands 66% up from previous week. In MCX, because of the strong rupee, we might not see gold jumping as much as in COMEX but the trend still remains positive and traders should adapt buy on dips strategy. Rs. 47700-47800 will be resistance for today while support comes in vicinity of Rs. 47150-47000.

COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1805/oz after a 1.3% gain yesterday. Gold steadied as the US dollar index paused after yesterday’s decline. Supporting price is reduced expectations of Fed’s monetary tightening post comments from Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan, mixed economic data from major economies, tensions relating to Afghanistan and persisting virus concerns. Weighing on price is continuing ETF outflows and recovery in equity markets. Gold’s break above $1800/oz shows positive momentum however gains may be limited if bulls fall in keeping it above $1800/oz.

Comex gold manages to break the 1800 resistance mark on the back of some weakness in the dollar index but still, it has resistance in the 1805-1835 supply zone so there is a risk of profit booking from here. 1790 will be the immediate support level while 1775 is a critical support level. MCX gold has a supply zone of 47750-48000 and 47300 is an immediate support level while 47000 will be a crucial support level.
