Gold likely to trade with a positive bias: ICICIDirect report
Gold prices recovered from their day’s lows and ended near the higher end of the day as a weaker set of economic numbers from the US raised hopes of a slowdown in interest rate hike. The US CB consumer confidence dipped to 107.10 against the previous reading of 109. Furthermore, weakness in Chicago PMI numbers and House price index has raised concerns of a slowdown in the economy. Additionally, a decline in 10-year bond yields and slide in the dollar index has supported the gold rally. Gold prices are likely to trade with a positive bias amid expectation of a slowdown in the aggressive Fed interest rate regime. Moreover, forecast of disappointing ISM manufacturing numbers and weakening of the labor market may support prices. Meanwhile, the major focus shifts towards the FOMC statement. MCX silver is likely to rise towards the key target zone of 69,500.
