Gold prices fell on November 15 as investors' risk appetite was whetted by comments from White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow that the United States was close to an interim trade pact with China
On the daily chart on November 14, gold traded positive. Prices have traded flat this week, giving 3 Doji closings, and for the last two days, gold formed a bullish green candle on closing, which is a positive sign for the bulls.
On the upside, 38,350-38,650 is likely to act as a supply zone. Though prices have closed above 20-day exponential moving average placed at 38,031, and 50-day EMA placed at 37,870, and some profit booking will be on cards that would act as positional buying opportunities.
On the downside, Rs 38,000 will be the support point, and any fall below it should lead to further selling.Disclaimer: The views and investment tips expressed by investment experts on moneycontrol.com are his own and not that of the website or its management.
