What Analysts Say:
Sandeep Matta, Founder, TRADEIT Investment Advisor: “The precious metal registered double digit gain as IMF trimmed its global growth outlook due to increasing threats from supply chain bottlenecks and delta variant. The yellow metal has seen incremental demand amid energy crisis, strong dollar and elevated bond yield. Technically, gold is facing strong resistance between $1775 to $1800/oz and seems not in hurry to cross these levels. The outlook stable for today and market participants are advised to follow key pivotal levels both the sides.”
He added that, “Key level for Gold December Contract – Rs 47,218, Buy Zone above – Rs 47225 for the target of Rs 47,375-47,468, Sell Zone below – Rs 47,200 for the target of Rs 47,016-46,900.”
Ravi Singh, Vice President & Head of Research, ShareIndia, said, “Stronger US dollar, expectation of Fed tapering and higher US Treasury yields have kept a downward pressure on Gold since June. However, the arising challenges in the recovery of the global economies and festive demand will increase the appeal of safe haven in coming weeks.”
He further mentioned, “Buy Zone – Rs 47,100 for the target of Rs 47,380, Sell Zone below – Rs 46,900 for the target of Rs 46,600.”
