In the morning gold touched the magical figure of $2000. Bears expect that the rally will be over while bulls are anticipating $2200 kind of levels. Going by the technicals, it seems that the rally is still left in the gold and any correction till $1950 or deep correction till $1920 should be used to add the metal in the portfolio for targets of $2040 before the financial year ends. Our view will negate if it manages to close below $1900.
In the domestic market, any correction till Rs 51500 and Rs 50500 should be used to add gold in the portfolio for target of Rs 56000 while the view negates below Rs 49500.
