Gold is facing a double-edged sword of inflationary pressures where rising inflation is positive for gold short term but US Fed statement of rising interest rates in 2023 is negative for gold. Gold’s reaction to yesterday’s press conference from Powell was tepid at best as gold failed to hold its head above 47300. Some of the gains can be attributed to the falling US yields yesterday. Failure for gold’s rally is the comments from Jerome Powell that inflation is transitory as demand has cropped up because of opening of business and economies and Fed will not put the brakes on its easy money policies too soon. Right now gold is fighting with the equity market and it seems most of the money is getting rotated back to the equity class which is why we are seeing equity markets near to all time high. Speculators continue to trim their long positions and we feel once $1820 is taken out in COMEX, then we may see long positions getting added. Till then we remain neutral in gold and will only recommend going long in Gold above 47300. Support for gold comes near 46600-46200.

Gold is going back and forth, as the price action in the dollar has become a more important factor especially after the conflicting signals from the Fed officials. The traders have shifted back into price discovery mode, as the Fed needs to fine-tune the taper lift-off date. So a short term boost can be seen in gold, the MCX gold price can witness a resistance around 47350-47750, while support is located around 46500-46100.

COMEX gold trades modestly lower near $1776/oz after a 0.3% gain yesterday. Gold weakened again as the US dollar stabilized amid hawkish comments by some Fed officials and some upbeat economic data. ETF outflows also showed weaker investor interest. However, supporting price is increased US-China tensions and persisting virus concerns. Gold may remain choppy as market players react to central bank comments however the general bias remains weak as diverging monetary policy stance of Fed and other central banks may support US dollar.

Technically, MCX Gold Aug prices are looking negative for intraday. However, Price going to trade in a sideways movement for the next few days (47,350 to 46,500) levels. Going forward, we expect the next leg of movement will start only breaking above this level. On the other hand, the ADX indicator continues to move above 30 levels which suggests that still more weakness can expect in the gold price in the coming sessions. On an hourly chart, MCX Gold price will be going to face a strong resistance zone at 47350 levels and breaking above which price can head towards upper channel line which comes around 47900 to 48000 levels. Similarly, on the downside, it will take strong support at 46,500 and break below which can expect more weakness in the gold price in the coming sessions. The overall short-term trend for the Gold price is ‘Sideways’. MCX Silver price has taken strong support at a 200-day moving average (66,580) and from there it bounced back. We expect MCX Silver price going to trade in the sideways movement for the intraday (66,580 to 69,000).On the upside, the price will be going to face strong resistance at a 100-day moving average (69,000). Going forward, we expect the next few days silver prices are going to hovering around these two (100 & 200 days) moving averages.
