- Gold, silver prices plunge as US dollar strengthens; bullion rates may trade sideways to down
- Gold Price Today, 18 June 2021, gains after falling over Rs 1,500 in previous session; silver rates gain
- Gold Price Today, 17 June 2021, tanks to one-month low post US FOMC outcome; MCX silver below Rs 71,000
Despite a surge in US CPI, the market has not freaked out. Dollar bulls are convinced that Fed won’t hint at an earlier than expected tapering and reiterate at inflation being transitory. But all will be revealed at the June 16th FOMC meeting, until then dollar index is expected to remain subdued, which will provide support to gold. In MCX Gold, only a consistent trying below 49,000, will push prices towards 48450-48300-48000. The crucial resistance is around 49,650 and sustenance above that will push towards 50,000-50,300.

Yesterday gold prices bounced off their session lows following stronger than expected US inflation numbers. Headline inflation rose to 5% which is the largest 12 month increase since Aug 2008. Gold market now appears to be catching bid following strong headline number. US Fed had reiterated that inflationary pressure will be transitory and so we believe they will not be in a hurry to tighten interest rate which is positive for gold. Despite positive news for gold, gold bulls seem to be getting tired near $1900 levels and so we would wait for $1920 to surpass before recommending fresh long positions. Open interest suggests long positions getting unwinded and that is why we are not able to see gold ride on the momentum upside. In MCX, 49,800 is the level that gold bulls need to push. Trading range for today seems to be 48,800-49,500 and buy on dips should be the strategy with stoploss of 48,800.

COMEX gold trades modestly higher above $1900/oz after a largely flat close yesterday. Gold trades higher supported by choppiness in the US dollar and sharp decline in US bond yield in reaction to US inflation data. ETF inflows also show buying interest in the metal. However, weighing on price is weaker Indian consumer demand and general improvement in global growth outlook. Gold has rescaled $1900/oz and may trade with a positive bias unless there is a strong rise in US dollar and bond yields.
