Gold prices are in hibernation ahead of the Jackson Hole symposium. Another reason for prices being quiet is there are less news flow, little economic data and anticipation of what Fed chairman will say about tapering in Jackson Hole. US GDP data for the second quarter came higher than the previous reading but fell short of expected number which helped gold prices claw back near $1800. We believe any break above $1815 will only come after the conclusion of the Jackson Hole symposium. Gold will witness knee-jerk reaction and traders are advised not to carry any position overnight but focus on intraday trade. Buy on dips strategy is advisable today with support coming around 46900 and resistance at 47700.

COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1800/oz after a 0.2% gain yesterday. Gold trades higher supported by safe haven buying amid increasing tensions relating to Afghanistan following attacks at Kabul airport. Mixed economic data from major economies and rising virus cases has also lent support. However, weighing on gold price is recovery in US dollar amid some hawkish Fed comments, weaker investor interest and drop in China’s gold imports. Gold may continue to trade firm amid risk aversion in the market and a fall may come only if Fed Chairman sounds too hawkish.

Gold prices are seeing some bullish traction from the lower range of the range and trading above 50-DEMA. Market participants are expecting to get more clarity and insights on precious metal from the speech of Fed chairman at the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium. Increasing threats of delta variants are likely to negatively impact economic growth which may force Fed Reserve to take a step back and would be a bullish trigger point both for Gold and Silver.
Gold on MCX is also closed mostly unchanged and awaiting more clarity on tapering timelines from the Fed meeting. The outlook for the gold is positive however we may see sharp moves in prices either side based on the outcome of the fed meeting.
