On the daily chart Gold traded flat on the back of year-ending holiday season with little participation globally, but undertone remains bullish. A Phase I deal will be signed on 15 Jan20 which can limit the rally on upside.

Prices overall are in a positive trend market bias. Prices can be in the bullish momentum till the time they are above 38,100 on a closing basis. For the day 39,125-39,250 will act as resistance whereas 39,000-38,875 as supports.
