Gold prices drops after modest gains
“Gold prices dropped on Tuesday amid modest gain in the US dollar index and surge in US treasury yields. Further, the consumer price index in the US rose by 6.0% YoY in February 2023 in line with market expectations. Inflation eased in February but remained stubbornly high, presenting a challenge for the Federal Reserve as it is trying to cool down the economy with higher rates at the same time it moves to stem financial instability.
“Gold is likely to trade with a negative bias for the day amid higher US treasury yields. However, sharp downside may be cushioned as demand for gold may increase as a hedge against economic uncertainties. MCX gold is expected to break the key support level of 57,250 to continue its downward trend towards the level of 57,000. MCX silver prices may face resistance near 67100 and drop back till 66,400,” said an ICICIdirect report.
