Silver is trading at 59050 levels on mcx and in international level it is trading at $20.62 levels. Weakness in dollar and investment demand supports the gold and silver prices. Safe haven demand due to geopolitical tension is seen in bullions. Physical demand for bullion is increasing in India in the upcoming festival season. We are expecting that gold and silver may trade higher further. Gold may test 53000 to 54000 on MCX and $1820 to $1840 very soon. Silver may test 63000 on mcx and $22 in international market. Investors can add gold and silver in their portfolio.

Gold is trading marginally lower during the European trade session. Traders are still watching China’s military exercises near Taiwan and any aggression from China might help gold in the short run. Crude hit 4.5 month low which might cool off inflation which is negative news for gold. The US dollar and yields are trading flat so we are not expecting any big move today. Technically, October gold futures bears still have the overall near-term technical advantage. Above $1850-$1865 can we see gold bulls taking charge. Right now gold is expected to trade weak but in MCX because of the weak rupee, gold will find some footing and is not looking as negative as in COMEX. In MCX, gold still looks positive until it is above 51200. On the upside, 52500 is the resistance.
