COMEX gold trades modestly lower amid stable US dollar and higher bond yields as US inflation data did little to deter market expectations that the Fed may continue with aggressive rate hikes. Also weighing on gold price is continuing ETF outflows which shows lack of investor interest. Gold has corrected after failing to break past the $1750/oz level and may remain under pressure as market players position for the Fed meeting next week however we need to see if it manages to hold near the $1700/oz level.

Gold is under $1700 despite US PPI meeting market expectation. The follow up selling continues after yesterday’s fall when the market was caught wrong footed after US inflation data came higher than expected. $1690-$1685 is the zone where typically buyers emerge and if gold fails to hold this level, then expect prices to test $1675-$1650. In MCX, price has already breached its recent swing low of 49876 and is looking vulnerable till 49500. So sell on rise should be the theme today for intraday with stoploss of 50400 and expected target of 49500.
