Strong US Dollar (20 year high) and rising bond yields have contributed to fall across all major asset classes be it commodity or equity. Gold prices have bounced from its support of $1850 but it is not out of the woods yet. Yield on the 10 year US Treasury is at four year high and traders fear that global price inflation has gotten out of control. Another fear in the market is that aggressive monetary policy from central banks could derail growth and push economies into recession. These collective fears have pushed traders into safe assets like US dollar and treasuries while selling off precious metals and equity assets. For the third consecutive week, hedge funds reduced their bullish bets on gold and increased short exposure. Gold’s net length fell to a fresh three-month low. In MCX, gold has got support from weak rupee which is trading at all-time low. 50500 continue to be strong support and long positions can be taken with stoploss of 50500 and expected target of 51500 intraday.

Gold and silver prices extended their retreat to fall more than 1%; on Monday as the dollar hovered near two decade highs, dimming the metal’s safe haven appeal. U.S. central bank’s policy tightening action has supported the rally in yields and Dollar which is currently hovering around 3.1% and 103.70 respectively. Economic calendar is muted for the day although market participants will be keeping an eye on the U.S. Inflation data scheduled this week which could give further direction to the metal. Broader trend on COMEX could be in the range of $1830-1890 and on domestic front prices could hover in the range of Rs 50,700-51400
