Gold has dropped below $1900 and although dollar weakness contributed fractional tailwinds, it was not enough for gold to close positive yesterday. Despite minor pullback, gold bulls have near technical advantage. A two-month-old price uptrend is in place on the daily bar chart. Next resistance for gold comes around $1959, a level last seen in Dec 2020. Immediate support for gold in COMEX is at $1885. In MCX, prices are still above its 200 day moving average and we recommend taking some profit off the table as gold in COMEX is trading in an overbought zone while in MCX, Gold prices due to strong rupee (it underperformed compared to COMEX) has just entered overbought zone. There would be an opportunity to go long around 48800 with stoploss of 48200. Wait for some decline before taking fresh long positions but the underlying trend still remains positive.

COMEX gold trades in a narrow range near $1900/oz after a near flat close in the previous session. Gold is choppy near $1900/oz reflecting volatility in US dollar and equity market as market players assess monetary policy amid economic growth and rising inflation pressure. ETF inflows indicated some buying interest from investors however this is countered by weaker consumer demand in India owing to virus related restrictions. Gold may witness choppy trade along with US dollar and equity market however general bias may be on the upside until the US dollar recovers significantly.

Comex gold was down 0.25% or $4.85 and closed at $1,900 per ounce, after hitting its highest since 8th January at $1,916.4 per ounce. Yesterday gold retreated as strong U.S. economic data prompted the shift back into riskier assets. Yesterday Gold July future at the India International Exchange (India INX) ended at $1,903 an ounce as momentum in the international market was weak in the evening session. In the absence of any major data today, market participants’ focus this week will be on U.S. payrolls data due on Friday for further clarity on economic recovery and near-term Federal Reserve policy action. Since strong economic data has supported a rebound in the US dollar, the yellow metal may fall during the intraday.
