Gold was trading lower in the Indian market on June 10 following a muted trend in international spot prices that were weighed down by a firmer dollar.
On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), August gold contracts were trading lower by 0.22 percent at Rs 49,015 for 10 grams at 0930 hours. July silver futures were trading 0.54 percent lower at Rs 71,495 a kilogram.
“Investors sat on the sidelines waiting for clearer signals on inflation levels and economic growth ahead of US data and the European Central Bank meeting later in the day,” said a Reuters report.
The dollar index edged up slightly to trade near 90.137 against its rivals, making gold less appealing for other currency holders, it said.
Gold and silver showed volatility ahead of the US CPI data on June 9. Both precious metals settled on a positive note in the international markets.
Gold August futures contract settled at $1,895.50 a troy ounce and silver July futures contract settled at $28 a troy ounce. Gold ended flat in the domestic markets on.
“All eyes will be on the US inflation figures due to be released today, if it comes lower than expected then expect gold to sell-off in the short term. However, a higher than expected number may give gold and silver the fillip it needs to break resistance and start the next leg in this bullish cycle,” Manoj Kumar Jain, Director, Head-Commodity & Currency Research at Prithvifinmart Commodity Research said on June 11.

“We expect both the precious metals to remain volatile in today’s session ahead of the US CPI data. Gold has support at 48,950-48,700 and resistance at 49,300-49,550, while silver is having support at 71,200-70,700 and resistance at 72,200-72,800 levels,” he said.
Jain suggests buying in gold on dips around Rs 48,950 with a stop loss of 48,700 for the target of 49,400 and silver around Rs 71,300 with a stop loss of 70,700 for the target of 72,500.

COMEX gold was trading modestly lower near $1,890 after gaining 0.1 percent the previous day. Weighing on the gold price is firmness in the US dollar index ahead of US inflation data and ECB's monetary policy meeting on June 11.
ETF activity remains mixed, while consumer demand in India remains impacted by virus-related restrictions.
Gold may remain choppy ahead of key events, however, the general bias remains on the upside unless we see a sharp rise in US dollar.
