A strong rally in the US dollar index and sharp losses in the crude oil market were bearish outside market forces pushing the metals markets lower. The gold and silver markets extended losses after two Federal Reserve officials sounded a still aggressively hawkish tone on US monetary policy. Precious metals fell following the release of the US housing data from October, with housing starts and building permits dropping less than expected. Crude oil also slipped and pushed both precious metals lower.

We expect gold and silver prices to remain volatile in today’s session. Gold has support at $1758-1748 while resistance at $1785-1794. Silver has support at $21.38-21.22, while resistance is at $21.86-22.10. In INR terms gold has support at Rs 52,670-52,450, while resistance is at Rs 53,080, 53,220. Silver has support at Rs 61,450-60,780, while resistance is at Rs 62,470–62,880.

COMEX Gold trades near $1766 after a 0.72 per cent fall in yesterday’s session. Gold’s rally took a pause mid-week as the geopolitical premium that was built after a missile fell in Polish territory diminished after the Polish President’s statement. The recent rally in gold was mainly due to expectation that Fed would slow down the rate hike in their upcoming meeting after data showing inflation cooled in October. However, in the last few sessions various Fed governors seemed hawkish that has supported the US dollar.

Although some more correction can’t be ruled out, the undertone in gold still remains bullish as the probability of a smaller rate hike by Fed in the upcoming meeting is still more than 80 per cent. On the price front, as mentioned in our previous report gold failed in breaking the $1780/oz resistance on closing. Support now is pegged near $1740/oz which should hold and price might trade between $1740-$1780. Break on either side might give direction.

After two days of running correction, US Gold is trading slightly up in today’s session, as the metal’s safe-haven demand diminished on waning fears of an escalation in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. From the bottom of 1615, Comex Gold rose towards 1796 in a short span of time. A range of $1730- $1735 has become a strong base for gold. Bullion prices also saw an element of profit-taking after strong gains in four of the past five sessions, and still traded near a three-month high. In the United States, a gauge of manufacturing activity in the US mid-Atlantic region fell unexpectedly this month to its lowest level since 2011 as firms reported continued softness in new orders and a weak outlook.

MCX Gold has broken the 5 session’s winning streak and closed with a minor loss of 0.4 per cent. MCX. Silver Dec Futures broke below 8 session low with a loss of 1.64 per cent. Support for the gold Dec Future is seen at 52,600 odd levels, below which it could extend the correction. A level of 53,200 has become short-term resistance for the MCX gold December Future.
