The price of gold edged higher towards $1800 as some relief was seen in US yields and the dollar. The US Fed signaled interest rate hikes from March 2022 in its latest policy decision, which was due last month. With that, many central banks like the ECB, BoE and others have their policy meeting scheduled for this week keeping pressure on metal prices. Fed policymakers mentioned in their speech that they would raise interest rates in March, but sounded cautious about what might come next, signaling a desire to keep options open amid an uncertain outlook for the economy. inflation, the employment scenario in the United States and an ongoing pandemic. Major Asian hubs such as China saw firm demand for physical gold over the past week as buyers geared up for the Lunar New Year holiday. While there has been some delay in the internal market, all eyes are on the EU budget due today. Any updates regarding import duties and the development of the bullion industry will have an impact on prices. Market participants will also be keeping an eye on the expected manufacturing PMI data from major economies. A broader trend on the COMEX could be between $1,775 and $1,815 and on the home front, prices could swing between Rs 47,250 and 48,000.

COMEX gold is trading slightly higher near $1797 an ounce after a 0.5% gain yesterday. Gold edged higher amid a decline in the US Dollar Index from recent highs, mixed economic data and corporate earnings, heightened geopolitical tensions and inflationary concerns. ETF entries are also showing buying interest. However, stability in the stock market dampened the rise. Gold edged higher after taking support near the $1780/oz level and may now edge closer to the key $1800/oz level, but a big upside is unlikely as the Fed’s tightening stance may hold the US dollar supported.

After 2 days of negative closing, gold prices were flat on Tuesday and also opened flat today. After a year of consolidation, gold has formed a solid price floor at around $1,700 per ounce. Gold’s upside potential stems from the Fed’s hawkish stance to fight inflation as the US stock market sheds last year’s gains. Gold reacted well when the Federal Reserve launched the last cycle of rate hikes in 2015 until its end in 2019 and this time expects the metals to also be in favor when the rate hike begins in March. The US dollar has moved away from multi-month highs, which could also give gold some respite. Gold is expected to remain sideways today and may experience some volatility due to the movement of the Indian Rupee as we have the Union budget unveiling today. Support for the intraday lies at 47450 while resistance lies at 47900.

April MCX Gold futures opened near Rs. 47,674 per 10 grams capping upside on rupee appreciation. The yellow metal has seen a rally, erasing some previous losses despite a firm dollar.
