Gold likely to trade with negative bias: ICICIdirect report
Gold prices traded on a weaker note on Monday as markets expected interest rates to remain above 5% for longer. Further hawkish comments from the Fed Governor Bowman to keep rates at higher levels has diminished bullish bets on the precious metals. Now the focus shifts towards the key US CPI data, which is expected to moderate to 6.2% against previous reading of 6.5%. Gold prices are trading near four week lows at 56380. A move below this level would weaken the price towards 56,000, followed by 55,800. MCX silver has been trading below the key support of 50 day EMA at 67,200. Hence, as long as it trades under this level it is likely to slide towards the next support of 65,200.
