Gold Price Today, Gold Price Outlook, Gold Price Forecast: Gold prices are trading steady and prices have stabilized this week after the sell-off seen last week due to hawkish US Fed policy. Lots of short-term money has moved out of the gold market but the long-term picture hasn’t changed. These fear-driven dips should be bought. US President has given approval of $1.2 trillion infrastructure plans and government spending is going to create a unique inflationary environment. There is also fear that the US and global economies might start to slow down by the end of the year as growth has been strong since the start of the year due to consumers unleashing pent-up demand caused by the COVID-19 restriction. Right now gold prices are struggling to attract momentum and push the market above the psychological number of $1800. Rs. 46600 in MCX is proving to be strong support and gold bulls can take comfort till that level holds. Any price movement above Rs. 47400 will attract buyers. The technical picture for gold may change once it breaches Rs.46000 on the downside and trend would change from neutral to negative.

Gold may remain choppy along with US dollar however general bias remains weak owing to Fed’s monetary tightening outlook.
