Gold market continues to trade sideways in COMEX while in MCX, because of weak INR, got some boost and traded higher. Gold clawed back all its losses yesterday after US Fed’s member’s statement that they will raise rates to keep inflation in control. This shows that bulls have upper hand as we have not seen any follow up selling after yesterday’s fall. US house speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit has been over in Taiwan so some risk on sentiment has also returned. In MCX, gold is at its resistance of 51740 as in the last 3 trading sessions, gold has made high around that region. So breakout above that level could see prices climb till 52100-52200. Intraday support comes at 51500. Bias remains bullish for intraday.

Fed policymakers signaled that the central bank remains resolute in getting U.S. rates up to a level that will more significantly curb economic activity and put a dent in the highest inflation since the 1980s. Yes, gold appears to have gained some ground in the past few sessions, although the prospect of further increase in interest rate this year capped gains for metal on the higher side.
Data showed the U.S. services industry unexpectedly picked up in July as new orders grew solidly, while U.S. factory orders also rose in June, gaining 2% after advancing 1.8% in May.
