What Analysts Say:
Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Commodity Research Head at Kotak Securities:
Comex gold trades marginally near $1756/oz after falling 0.4% yesterday. Gold trades under pressure amid a stronger US dollar and higher bond yields amid Fed’s monetary consolidation expectations. ETF outflows also weaken investors. Shows interest. However, support is a safe haven buying amid rising challenges for the global economy and improving consumer demand. Gold may remain limited as a stronger US dollar will counter weak risk sentiment, though lower prices amid weakening risk appetite Might attract some purchases.”
