MCX Gold short-term trend negative; ‘sell on rise’ in Silver, fall below Rs 60000 will lead it to 57800

At the start of the year, the gold bulls party was popped by the US Fed hawkish tone. The Federal Reserve’s FOMC minutes that were released this week indicated a tight U.S. job market and rising inflation which might require the central bank to raise interest rates even sooner than many already expected. The minutes suggested that inflationary concern outweighed economic risk posed by the new variant of Covid-19. Rising interest rate helps US Treasury yields rise which is bullish for the US dollar.

Watch 17800 for shift in momentum

“While anticipating a turn higher from the 17680 region yesterday, our favored view was a quick return to the 18100 trajectory. While the objective would still be in play, we feel a consolidation would prevail over upside attempts. Though the turn of events is consistent with our reading of oscillators, we prefer to be watchful near 17800, for a shift in momentum,” said Geojit Financial Services.

Use corrections to buy large-cap IT and leading banks

“The spike in the volatility Index India Vix by 4.35%, renewed big FII selling (Rs 1927cr) after 4 days of consecutive buying and the US 10-year bond yield spiking to 1.71% indicate imminent volatility and uncertainty regarding short-term trends. While the tightening global monetary backdrop is a concern for equity markets, the improving corporate earnings scenario and the resilience of retail investors and DIIs are positive. An important trend in the market is the resilience of the mid and small-cap segments where there is no FII selling and the weakness in banks and IT where FIIs have been selling. The takeaway is that the moment FII selling stops, IT and banks will bounce back.
Short-term trend is highly uncertain. Long-term investors can use corrections to buy large-cap IT and leading banks,” said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

Consolidation on cards but bias positive

“Markets may witness further consolidation however the bias would remain on the positive side till Nifty holds a 17,400 zone.
