Gold Price Today: Yellow metal to remain volatile amid rising US bond yields

Traders are advised to make fresh long positions in gold and silver on small dips, says Amit Khare of Ganganagar Commodity

October 20, 2021 / 10:04 AM IST

Gold was trading a tad higher in the Indian market on October 20 even as surging US bond yields dented the metal’s appeal in the international market and bets for upbeat corporate earnings lifted risk-on sentiment.

On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), gold contracts were up 0.29 percent to Rs 47,417 for 10 grams at 9.30 am. December silver futures were up 0.09 percent to Rs 64,511 a kilogram.

"The yellow metal showed extreme volatility yesterday and gained in the early trading session but give up most of the gains in the late evening session after strong gains in the US bond yields. However, silver posted solid gains and reached five-week highs," said Manoj Kumar Jain of Prithvifinmart Commodity Research.

"We expect both precious metals to remain volatile in today’s session and gold prices are expected to hold their key support of $1,750 per troy ounce,” he added.

Gold has support at $1,755-17,44 a troy ounce and resistance at $1,784-1,800 per, while silver has support at $23.55-23.20 a troy ounce and resistance at $24.10-24.40 per troy ounce, he said.


On MCX, gold has support at Rs 47,050-46,800 and resistance at Rs 47,550-47,770, while silver has support at Rs 63,900-63,300 and resistance at Rs 64,800-65,500.

“We suggest buying gold around Rs 47,100 with a stop loss of Rs 46,880 for the target of Rs 47,550," Jain added.

On MCX, gold has resistance at Rs 47,700 and selling pressure can be seen if it rises towards resistance levels. It has support at Rs 47,000. Silver has resistance at Rs 65,500 and support at Rs 63,800.
