Silver July futures were trading in red at Rs 62,322 per kg on MCX. Globally, yellow metal prices edged lower and looked set to fall for a third straight week, weighed down by a robust dollar and rising yields, while investors await the U.S. jobs report to assess its impact on monetary policy, according to Reuters. Spot gold fell 0.4% to $1,869.26 per ounce, while U.S. gold futures slipped 0.4% to $1,869.10. Bullion has declined about 1.5% so far this week.

Gold prices fell, giving up some gains from a more than 1% rise, amid the rise in U.S. Yields and Dollar. The dollar index gained 1.3%, towards 103.90 levels, boosted by safe haven inflows driven by a retreat in Wall Street, while the yield on 10-year Treasury notes rose over 3%. The Fed raised its benchmark overnight interest rate by 50bps, the biggest jump in 22 years, while Chair Jerome Powell added the bank was not considering a 75bps move in the future. Any signs of a recovering economy reduces demand for safe-haven metal. Hence, after a fall witnessed in U.S. private payroll numbers, focus for today will be on the Non-farm payroll and unemployment data from the U.S. to gauge further direction for the metals. Broader trend on COMEX could be in the range of $1860-1910 and on domestic front prices could hover in the range of Rs 50650-51250.

After some initial exuberance by the marketplace that the Fed was becoming less hawkish on U.S. monetary policy, traders and investors came to their senses and realized nothing has changed which is why we have seen equity markets and bullions crashing down after strong up move. Traders and investors are now awaiting Friday’s U.S. employment situation report for April. Strong US dollar and bond yields still are headwinds for the gold market and we believe gold will remain confined in the range of 50500-51500 for the next couple of days. Any dips near 50500 could be bought with stoploss of 50000 and target of upper range i.e. 51500.
