Gold price inched a bit higher towards $1800 as some relief was seen in the U.S. yields and Dollar. The U.S. Fed signaled interest rate hikes from March 2022 in its latest policy decision, which was scheduled last month. With that, many central banks like ECB, BoE and others have their policy meet scheduled this week keeping the pressure on the metal prices. Fed policymakers mentioned in their speech that they’ll raise interest rates in March but showed a cautious tone about what might follow, signaling a desire to keep options open in the face of an uncertain outlook for inflation, U.S. job scenario and a pandemic still ongoing. Top Asian hubs such as China recorded firm demand for physical gold during the previous week as shoppers prepared for the Lunar New Year holiday. Whereas, there was some delay seen on the domestic market, all eyes are set on the Union budget scheduled today. Any update regarding the import duty and development in bullion industry will impact the prices. Market participants will also keep an eye on the Manufacturing PMI data expected from major economies. Broader trend on COMEX could be in the range of $1775- 1815 and on domestic front prices could hover in the range of Rs 47,250- 48,000.

COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1797/oz after a 0.5% gain yesterday. Gold has edged up amid retreat in US dollar index from recent highs, mixed economic data and corporate earnings results, increased geopolitical tensions and inflation concerns. ETF inflows also shows buying interest. However, stability in equity market has kept a check on upside. Gold has edged up after taking support near $1780/oz level and may now move towards the key $1800/oz level however a sharp upside is unlikely as Fed’s tightening stance may keep 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 bottom at around $1,700 an ounce. Gold’s potential upside stems from the Fed’s hawkish stance to fight inflation as the U.S. stock market gives up last year’s gains. Gold responded well when the Federal Reserve started the last rate-hike cycle in 2015 till it ended in 2019 and expect that this time the metals will also be in favour when rate hike starts in March. US dollar has moved away from multi month peaks which also could give gold some respite. Gold is expected to remain sideways today and might see some volatility on back of Indian Rupee’s movement as we have Union Budget unveiling today. Support for intraday comes at 47450 while resistance comes at 47900.

Gold gained ground as the Dollar index retreated from higher levels. However, prices of precious metals remained range-bound due to long week holidays in the Chinese market. Today price selling pressure is likely to be seen in precious metals ahead of the Union budget of India.

Silver has support at 60000 and fresh selling is expected below this level.
