“Gold prices opened slightly higher on Monday and consolidated during most of the session in the range of Rs 46,900-47,100 levels. Prices traded in a tight range in the last few sessions as investors remained on the sidelines given the US Federal Reserve’s mixed signals on policy tightening. Therefore, we expect gold prices to consolidate in the range of Rs 46,800 - 47,300 levels in the short-term," said ICICI Securities in a report.
“Technically, August gold futures bears have the overall near-term technical advantage. A five-week-old price downtrend is in place on the daily bar chart. A bearish pennant pattern has formed on the daily chart. Bulls’ next upside price objective is to produce a close above solid resistance at $1,826.40. Bears’ next near-term downside price objective is pushing futures prices below solid technical support at $1,750.00. First resistance is seen at last week’s high of $1,795.60 and then at $1,800.00. First support is seen at today’s low of $1,770.40 and then at the June low of $1,761.20," said Amit Khare, AVP- research commodities, Ganganagar Commodities Limited.
