Gold and silver are under pressure in the morning session as global stocks were mostly higher overnight. Traders and investors continue to exhibit general risk-on attitudes that are bullish for the stock markets, and that is limiting the upside in the safe-haven metals. Gold once again failed to trade above its resistance zone of $1820-1825 and we have seen multiple times in 2021 then failing to clear the hurdle, gold loses its shine and plows back below $1800. In MCX, gold is near its support of 47900 and breach below that would see gold trade at 47600 to 47300. We continue to adhere to traders to keep their trades intraday due to low volume owing to the holiday season and any confirmed trend may only emerge next week.

Gold prices were trading in a tight range amid low volumes due to the global year end. It may remain in consolidation mode this week. However, the new year celebrations are fuelling the possibility of Omicron widespread, that’s why the majority of countries have already imposed the restriction on the celebration in order to curb the possible spread. The next few weeks would be crucial to decide the severity of Omicron after the holidays end. Any trigger will prove to be an upper breakout for gold prices.
Buy Zone Above – 48100 for the target of 48300
Sell Zone Below – 47800 for the target of 47600

Gold prices remained lower in early 2021 due to the overbought level however prices recovered around 6000 rupees per 10 gram from the low level of 43300 due to strong demand from the domestic Jewelry market. At the end of 2021, Gold prices are trading firmly above 48000 per 10 grams which is slightly down from December 2020. Continuing rising cases of Coronavirus variant Omicron and rising inflation may further support Gold prices for the year 2022. Energy and the prices of the other essential commodities are soaring again due to supply interruption increased due to pandemic which may ask for safe-haven demand. We are expecting Gold prices to move towards 54000 and beyond in 2022.
