Gold Trading Strategy Today:
International gold and silver prices rose on Monday as the dollar and yields remained under pressure, with investors eyeing a dovish U.S. Federal Reserve and a big stimulus package under U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration.
However, prices corrected on Tuesday as a slightly firmer dollar and uncertainty over a U.S. stimulus package kept bullion under pressure, with investors awaiting cues on future monetary policy decisions from the U.S. Federal Reserve.
Domestic gold and silver ended flat on Monday. Indian markets are shut on Tuesday on account of Republic Day holiday.
Domestic bullion could trade flat-to-marginally lower this Wednesday morning, tracking the international prices.
Gold Comex trades 0.3% lower near $1845/oz after a 0.2% decline yesterday. Gold is pressurized by increasing debate about the US stimulus package and position squaring ahead of the Fed’s monetary policy meeting.
ETF outflows also show a lack of investor interest. However, supporting price is rising virus cases and drop in bond yields and rise in Chinese imports last month.
Gold may witness choppy trade unless there are fresh triggers but general bias may be on the upside on hopes of US stimulus and expectations that the Fed may maintain an accommodative stance.
