Yesterday gold prices corrected sharply and closed at 48424 levels and in the international market it was trading at $1855 per ounce. Strength in dollar the main reason for the correction in gold prices. Feb meeting on rates would be the trend deciding factor for gold prices. However as per the scenario FED may take instance to curb the liquidity which may be negative for Gold price. For today traders can go for sell in gold at 48600 levels with the stoploss of 48850 levels for the target of 48100 levels. We expect gold may test $1830 per ounce level very soon.

Outlook is neutral in bullion commodities. FOMC will announce its decision on interest rates followed by statements at 11.30 IST. There’s growing nervousness about rising inflation and the feeling in precious metal markets is that central banks have to start to respond a bit more aggressively to these inflationary pressures. MCX gold August may stay in a tight range from R. 48,400 to 49,500 during the day session.
