Gold Price Today, Gold Price Outlook, Gold Price Forecast: Gold prices edged higher in India on Tuesday, on the back of positive global cues. On Multi Commodity Exchange, gold October futures were trading Rs 125 or 0.27 per cent up at Rs 47,289 per 10 gram, as against the previous close of Rs 47,164. Silver December futures were ruling at Rs 63,836 per kg, up Rs 250 or 0.4 per cent. In the previous session, silver futures ended at Rs 63,587. Globally, yellow metal prices were underpinned by a subdued dollar, with investors looking ahead to US non-farm payrolls data, which could be key to the Federal Reserve’s tapering decision, according to Reuters. Spot gold rose 0.1 per cent to $1,812.27 per ounce, and US gold futures were up 0.2 per cent at $1,816.00.

Gold prices are comfortable trading above $1800 despite US Fed changing the demeanor to a more dovish stance concerning the onset to taper their monthly $120 billion asset purchases. Money managers have increased their net long positions (up 28% from last week) and are waiting for the August jobs report this Friday. We see the potential for higher prices as it appears sentiment among speculative investors is shifting. 46800 continues to be strong support and we don’t see any reversal on the daily chart yet so we could go with the trend which is bullish. So a buy on dips strategy is recommended and we may see gold prices either breaking $1825 on Friday or back to its range of $1785-$1810 depending on the jobs report number. Profit booking before the event is unlikely and so bias should be on the long side in gold for traders.

Gold prices witnessed routine correction after the breakout on Friday and trying to consolidate above its 100-DEMA level. The precious metal after fed dovish commentary on tapering related times lines has entered into its strong resistance zone of the past few months which is established at $1835/oz and more traction can be expected once it crosses and sustains above these levels. Gold on MCX also traded with negative biases throughout the day, however maintaining the Rs 47000 level. The outlook is positive on the back of dollar and yield weakening while we recommend investors to buy gold and add more on every dip.

Key level for GOLD AUG Contract – 47268
Buy Zone Above – 47275 for the target of 47390-47500
Sell Zone Below – 47250 for the target of 47090-46950
