Overall, the focus is on Fed policy decision for further clues on the central bank’s next move on stimulus and US economic outlook. The gold traders may remain reluctant to take a new big position ahead of the Fed, as it could alter the trader’s sentiment. Ahead of the Fed, dollar index is subdued, cheering the gold bulls. Any dovish hint, will be positive for gold. MCX Gold prices gave up its intraday gains after hitting a high of 47784 levels yesterday and the counter closed with a marginal loss. Prices need to trade above 47650 levels today to see a retest of 47800/47955 levels. Intraday bounce will face resistance until then. Weakness below 47400 levels on a consistent basis will open targets of 47265/47045 levels for the counter. For short term, 46900 is the crucial support, above which every dip is buying opportunity for a target of 48000-48500. If prices drop below 46900, strong support lies around 46500-46300.

Gold is stuck at $1800 as market participants are waiting for comment from US Fed Powell this week. The trigger for gold would be the topic of tapering and now with growing concern that the US economy will slow in the second half of the year, tapering might not be as urgent as thought last month. If the US Fed gives no hint about tapering then the US dollar will weaken and ultimately will benefit gold. Hedge funds have covered their short positions, helping the market to bounce from $1782. Hedge funds though have also reduced their long positions as gold is stuck around $1800 and so they are not sticking their neck out on long positions either. Right now gold is a market that is looking for its next driver. Until the trend is clear, nobody is going to allocate much capital into the precious metals and that is why gold is stuck in limbo. In MCX, gold has support around 47300 and then 46800. Resistance comes around 47750-47800 and trend is neutral with no clear direction. Outcome of US Fed meet will give clear direction in domestic market so for now it is wait and watch.

COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1796/oz after a 0.1% decline yesterday. Gold is pressurized by continued strength in the US equity market, uncertainty about Fed’s monetary policy and continuing ETF outflows. However, supporting prices are rising virus cases, disappointing economic data, concerns about Chinese economy and increased US-China tensions and a jump in Chinese imports. Gold may witness choppy trade amid positioning ahead of Fed decision however global growth worries and virus concerns may keep price near $1800/oz.
