Gold saw modest gain yesterday as the IMF trimmed its 2021 global growth forecast to 5.9% from previously estimated 6% on the back of rising risks from supply chain bottlenecks and price pressures. This is the second time when gold failed to sustain at higher levels after positive news, the first was lower than expected US employment number. Today’s FOMC meeting minutes and US inflation number would be in focus. Any increase in inflationary pressure may give gold some tailwinds. The troubled Chinese property Giant, Evergrande, reportedly missed another big debt payment and traders are increasingly worried about a contagion effect. The US dollar and US Treasury still are strong so we are not expecting any strong gains from Gold. Support for gold in MCX today is at 46950 and resistance at 47450.

Stronger US dollar, expectation of Fed tapering and higher US Treasury yields have kept a downward pressure on Gold since June. However, the arising challenges in the recovery of the global economies and festive demand will increase the appeal of safe haven in coming weeks.

COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1762/oz after a 0.2% gain yesterday. Gold has continued to trade in a broad range near $1750/oz amid mixed factors and this may not change unless there are fresh triggers. On the positive side, gold has gained support from volatility in equity markets and slowing global growth as indicated by IMF’s latest economic outlook. However, weighing on gold price is higher US dollar and bond yields amid increased expectations of Fed’s monetary tightening. Gold may remain volatile amid mixed trade however with risk sentiment shaky we expect safe haven buying to keep prices supported.
