Fundamentally gold seems to be well placed as balance sheet shrinking by Fed has been shifted to end of year and hedge against inflation may continue to support the prices.
Technically, yesterday gold traded above its major moving averages and was well supported around $1815, for the day support is seen at $1814 and $1808 while resistance at $1830 and $1834. As per charts, we may see some dips today but overall gold and silver have turned buy on dips bets.
