Gold prices are remaining resilient despite the strong US dollar. FOMC minutes showed that most of the Fed members believe asset purchasing should be curtailed and we might see asset purchase programs coming to end by end of this year. Gold reacted negatively to this news but have again climbed back near to $1780. One of the reasons for gold not witnessing sell off is because of long liquidation in equity markets. US Weekly jobless claims also came stronger which should be negative for gold but prices are remaining steady. We might not see strong rally in gold due to headwinds in form of strong US dollar, rising US yields and asset tapering talks. But looking at the resilient we assume that gold bulls are discounting all bad news and waiting for any positive news for rally. Today also we recommend buy on dips with stoploss of 47000 and expected target of 47400.

Comex Gold is facing some selling pressure from the supply zone of USD1790-1800 due to a surge in the dollar index after Fed’s minutes but it is still trading sideways with immediate support at USD1775. Any decisive move from 1775-1800 band will dictate the further direction for it. If we talk about MCX Gold then there are two forces in opposite directions as a surge in the dollar index causing pressure in Comex gold but at the same time weakness in the rupee will support gold prices in the MCX market. Technically, 47500-47000 is a well-defined range and any decisive move from this band will dictate further direction.

Gold price from past few days is closing mostly unchanged and has stuck in the range of $1770-$1790/oz. Market participants will be eyeing the upcoming economic symposium which could become the new catalyst for gold to surge. Gold on MCX is also finding its major support on 47000 and trading with short term bullish technical advantage. The outlook is positive for precious metal particularly due to heavy selloff in global equity market and increasing cases of delta variant globally. Traders are advised to follow key levels both the sides and investors can accumulate gold on every dip.
