Gold price got some booster yesterday after FOMC meeting minutes tilted slightly dovish on US monetary policy. Some Fed officials were worried the Fed could be tightening monetary policy more than necessary. USD dropped sharply lower which helped both gold and silver to gain. Despite the gain, there are still headwinds as Fed terminal rate remains the same as the Minutes showed that some committee members expect the Fed Funds rate to end higher than previous projections.  Gold is again above $1755 in COMEX at the time of writing and with the US market closed today, we don’t anticipate any major moves.  Today’s intraday strategy should be buy on dips with stoploss of 52400 and expected target of 52780.

Gold prices closed in the green in the last trading session, as the Dollar Index corrected after the Fed minutes, as members supported a slower pace of interest rate hikes. Markets are now pricing a nearly 80% chance that the Bank will raise the rate by 50 bps in December. Also, the US private sector saw a solid contraction in business activity in November, which added downward pressure to the dollar. On the technical front, the immediate resistance zone is seen around the 52500 level. Breakout and sustained buying above the mentioned level may push prices higher toward the 53000 level. On the other hand, breakdown below 52300 may drag prices lower toward the 52000 level by this week.

Gold and silver prices rebounded from intraday lows after the dollar fell against its major crosses as the Fed meeting minutes suggest that the central bank was less hawkish as compared to expectations. A “substantial majority” of Fed policymakers agreed it would “likely soon be appropriate” to slow the pace of interest rate hikes. The minutes also showed an emerging debate within the Fed over the risks that rapid policy tightening could pose to economic growth and financial stability, even as policymakers acknowledged there had been little demonstrable progress on inflation and that rates still needed to rise. Today, volatility could remain low in the latter half of the day as the US market remains shut on account of Thanksgiving day holiday. We expect the gold to trade with a positive bias and quote in the range of 52,450 and 52,980.
