It was a roller coaster ride yesterday for Gold as ADP jobs reports came well below expectation and gold jumped to $1831 before giving up almost all of its gains to close, in essence unchanged. The reason for gold giving up all gains were better than expected data from the Institute of Supply Management (ISM). Market participants will focus intently on Friday’s numbers. There is anticipation of strong numbers on Friday but if the data report comes in as weak as the ADP report as we could expect the Federal Reserve to continue to maintain its extremely accommodative and dovish monetary policy, which would be bullish for gold prices. Gold traders have to be nimble in current market environment where they have to be on their toes because of extremely fast movement in short time. The gold market was dealt another blow after Federal Reserve vice-chair Richard Clarida said he supported raising interest rates in 2023. We remain bullish on gold and that dips should be bought with 47300 to be considered as support.

COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1812/oz after a near flat close yesterday. Gold is pressurized by firmness in the US dollar amid some hawkish Fed comments. Weaker investor interest and slack retail buying has also put pressure on price. However, supporting price is safe haven buying amid rising virus cases, uneven economic recovery and concerns about Chinese economy. Gold may continue to waver amid choppy equities however increasing economic uncertainty may keep prices supported.

Spot gold corrected from a weekly high on stronger US dollar and comments from the top US Federal Reserve official about the possibility of tapering of economic stimulus measures. Meanwhile, a mixed economic release from the country and concerns over Delta variant of Covid 19 continue to offer support to the prices. Gold price is required to break $1835 to continue the positive momentum. Or else, there are chances of corrective selling, but major liquidation is seen only if there is a close below $1765.
