COMEX gold has strong resistance in the 1810-1830 area and we are seeing some weakness from this zone where 1775 is a critical support level; any major weakness is expected only below this level. Eying the US Fed Chairman Jarom Powell’s speech in the Jackson hole symposium tomorrow, Gold is trading sideways. Coming to MCX gold, it has a critical support zone in the 47025-46825 area and any move below this can lead to any meaningful correction where 46580 will be the next support. On the upside, 47300-47500 is an immediate supply zone whereas 47750 is a critical hurdle.

COMEX gold trades little changed near $1790/oz after a 1% decline yesterday. Gold trades little changed as gains in US dollar is countered by choppiness in equities as market players position for Fed Chairman’s comments at the Jackson Hole Symposium. Support from virus risks, global growth worries and geopolitical tensions are countered by weaker investor interest. Gold may remain sideways ahead of Fed Chairman’s comments however global uncertainty may keep prices supported.

On the Comex front, prices are struggling to sustain above $1800/ounce mark. Key resistance is at $1810/ounce on closing basis. On the downside, key support is seen at $1770/ounce level.
