Just as gold, silver looked to set up for trend change, they sold off late. It was a volatile day yesterday where precious metals charged higher once again after higher than expected US weekly jobless claims before giving up all gains and settling back to where they started. Off late, we saw investors unwinding their inflation positions i.e. selling commodity markets and buying US Treasuries. Today’s support for gold is 47600 and bias is on buy side with dip near 47600 is a good opportunity to go long with an expected target of 47900 and stoploss of 47400.

COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1804/oz after a 0.1% decline on Thursday. Gold trades higher supported by safe-haven buying amid growth and virus concerns, weaker US dollar and lower bond yields. However, weighing on price is Fed’s tightening expectations and continuing ETF outflows. Gold may remain choppy near $1800/oz as safe-haven buying will be countered by Fed’s rate hike expectations.

Post FOMC minutes, gold is holding high. The minutes didn’t hint at any timeline for scaling-back the asset purchases by the Fed so that has been a positive factor for gold. The focus is back on the rising delta virus cases, the worries over lockdown will keep the gold prices steady. In MCX gold, as long as the price trades above 46900, the view is bullish with major resistance around 48500-49000, while major support is around 47300-46900.
