Below is the edited transcript of his interview on CNBC-TV18

Q: What accounts for the sharp knocks in bullion this morning?

A: The comments from the Fed Chief that they have still not avoided the fiscal cliff led to the sharp correction in most of the commodities.

Selling-on-rise was seen in precious metals and that got continued yesterday too. Now we are headed towards USD 1,680 per ounce on gold in the international market. So along with the trend, the sentiment too weakened overnight and that has led to the sharp correction in the precious metals pack.

Q: You are selling crude as well despite some strength globally on it?

A: Yes, we do not expect crude to rise. We are net sellers in crude for the last few weeks and we do not expect crude to go above USD 88-89 per barrel levels. Anywhere between USD 87 per barrel and USD 88 per barrel is a good level to short, keeping a stop loss of USD 90 per barrel.

We continue to remain net sellers in most of the commodities today on the anticipation that the dollar would strengthen going ahead and we would see some selling pressure into commodities.

Q: Any specific levels on silver that you are targeting today?

A: We expect a further Rs 500-600 correction but we would avoid selling at the current levels. We expect a minor bounce back in the first two hours of trading session and maybe that would be a good opportunity to short.

Maybe Rs 100-200 uptick from here would be a good level to short in silver, keeping Rs 700 on the downside.
