MCX Gold future has sustained in the range of 48600 – 48680 today and if it breaks above the resistance of 48715, we may expect a move towards 48840 – 49040.
Like Gold, International Silver is also trading in narrow sideways range of $27.25 – $27.40 since morning. The resistance holds near $27.47 and if the price breaks above this resistance, we may anticipate a move towards $27.75. MCX Silver future has sustained around the level of 70700 and trading back & forth, tested the resistance of 70850. The price is likely to be marginally positive and may move towards the psychological level of 71000 – 71250.”
Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities:
“COMEX gold trades modestly lower near $1869/oz. Gold has fallen sharply as upbeat US economic data has pushed US dollar index and bond yields higher while adding to debate that Fed may tighten monetary policy. US equity markets have also stabilized on President Biden’s tax proposal. Gold’s sharp up move in last few weeks has made it vulnerable to profit taking which may extend further if US dollar strengthens further.”
