Gold prices dropped 1% on December 6 after data showed that the US job growth had increased the most in 10 months in November, the strongest sign yet that the economy was in no danger of stalling.
On the daily chart, gold witnessed strong selling on the back of strong non-farm payrolls and jobs data. Technically, the ATR, which is significantly low at 355 from 500 in September, suggests that prices can be in momentum after a strong selling pressure on December 6.
Prices are hovering in a range-bound market between Rs 37,500- Rs 38,500. Flat to negative momentum can continue, hence, buying on the dip for minor gains and selling on rises for bigger gains should be maintained.
For the day, Rs 37,800-Rs 37,900 will act as resistance, whereas Rs 37,625-Rs 37500 as supports.Disclaimer: The views and investment tips expressed by investment experts on moneycontrol.com are their own and not those of the website or its management.
