COMEX gold trades near $1799/oz up about 0.9% from Friday’s close. Gold has edged up as US dollar and bond yields have weakened in reaction to mixed US non-farm payrolls report. Also supporting gold price is mixed economic data from major economies and renewed virus concerns. However, weighing on price is weaker investor interest and Fed’s monetary tightening concerns. Gold has edged up however it might sustain only if US dollar index falls sharply.

Gold is near to its psychological level of $1800 and sentiment has started to shift despite bearish bets continuing to dominate gold’s speculative market. Speculative long positions have started getting added (5400 contracts) although speculative short positions (6554 contracts) is more compare to long but addition of long positions certainly hints at shifting in sentiments. Sentiment in the silver market also appears to be turning bullish as hedge funds covered their bearish bets as the metal managed to hold support above $25.50 an ounce. The mixed US employment number released last week may hint that easy monetary policy may continue for a prolonged time. Tomorrows US Fed minutes may be the trigger gold bulls are looking for to push prices above $1800. In MCX, buy on dips strategy should be used with support coming around Rs 47150 and resistance at Rs. 47700.

Range bound bullish behavior of the gold continues and seems to have found its near term support around $1750 an ounce. Central banks of many countries are unveiling their plans to increase gold holding in near term as a fundamental measure against inflationary and other forms of financial risks. The higher high formation on daily basis is encouraging and seems like yellow metal is ready to breach $1800 mark very soon. Gold on MCX replicated the same behavior as the global market and closed on positive note. We are positive on gold for the next few days and price surge is expected on technical parameters.
