    Gold breaks above resistance, looks bullish now, silver must breach 63500 to rally; how to trade next week

    The US inflation data triggered a buying spree in Gold as precious metal jumped near $40 higher. September’s inflation numbers showed price pressures accelerating to 5.4% annually, slightly more than the market was expecting. Inflation has returned to 13 year high and with the stock market being in an overbought zone, we might see money shifting from risky assets to safe haven assets like Gold. We have seen Treasury yields flattening which is positive for Gold. Now investors are anticipating a rate hike sooner than expected. More persistent inflation could mean a more aggressive Federal Reserve when it comes to tightening.

    USD-INR should correct down towards 74.80-74.50

    We believe that the USDINR pair should correct down towards 74.80 and 74.50, which has an 80% probability. The key player for rupee management- “The RBI”, has so far done a remarkable job by not intervening too aggressively in selling dollars and let it be driven by market forces. However, considering the huge chunk of inflows paring the way, it will be watchful whether it also remains active downside. Overall, the medium-term trend for the USDINR pair remains bullish. But for a healthy and steady-up move, correction is required. And hence we believe that over the medium term, the USDINR pair will remain on a bullish note. Only if the crucial resistance of 75.50 is broken on account of any major market trigger, though having less probability in immediate time, then take it can take rupee towards 76.00 levels over the medium term.

    MCX Gold December future may witness a small pullback today

    Gold has been consolidating in the past few weeks amid mixed economic data and Fed’s tapering plans. But now finally gold has found a way out after the US inflation for September rose to a 13-year high of 5.4% year on year. Market has already discounted Fed’s tapering in November and the prospects of stagflation might incur some safe haven buying in the yellow metal.
