Saish Sandeep Sawant Dessai, Research Associate- Base Metals, Angel One on gold

After having witnessed a positive closing in the previous session, the price of gold was back again in the negative territory as it ended with a cut of 1.49 percent, ending at 1709.4$ per ounce,

After a one-day pause, gold prices resumed their downward trend. The metal is now headed for yet another weekly fall due to a persistent rise in the dollar and concerns over hasty increases in U.S. interest rates.

The dollar was hovering near 20-year highs, which restrained demand from customers holding other currencies for bullion priced in the greenback. A strong dollar sent gold down nearly 2% in the previous session.

Although the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield inched lower on Thursday, two of the Fed’s hawkish officials indicated they preferred another 75 basis-point increase in interest rates at this month’s policy meeting.

Outlook: We expect gold to trade lower towards 49790 levels, a break of which could prompt the price to move lower to 49370 levels.

Market view: Sameet Chavan, chief analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One

We can see the key support zone of 15950 – 15900 getting defended successfully on a closing basis. Hence, the bias still remains positive and one should use this as a buying opportunity till the time we do not sneak below it on a sustainable basis. On the flip side, there are a lot of headwinds that are not willing markets to stay at higher levels.

For the coming session, 16040 – 16070 are to be seen as immediate resistances and only a move beyond this would trigger some broad-based buying in the market. At this juncture, it’s advisable to stay light and identify the apt themes that remain a key for momentum traders. Sectorally, banking and IT again started sulking, and hence, their participation is a must in order to lift the overall sentiments in the traders’ fraternity.
