COMEX gold trades marginally higher near $1787/oz after a 1.2 percent gain in the previous session. Gold has recovered from the one-month low as mixed US jobs report has given a new turn to the ongoing debate about Fed’s monetary tightening. Increasing virus concerns has also increased gold’s safe haven appeal. However, weighing on price is weaker investor interest and gains in the US dollar and recovery in bond yields. Gold has recovered from lows but may struggle to break past $1800/oz as Fed’s tightening expectations may continue to weigh.

Gold traders are closely watching any sign of mutations in Omicron variant as the data is not sufficient to understand the severity and impact of this new variant. Gold prices will remain in the uptrend this week and short covering may be seen at dips. However, the recent hawkish stance of Fed is holding back the breakout in gold.
Buy zone above - Rs 48,000 for target of Rs 48,500
