Gold was trading flat in the Indian market on October 27 as international prices retreated from the key $1,800-mark after a strong dollar and elevated bond yields dented bullion’s safe-haven appeal ahead of key central bank meetings.
On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), the gold contracts were down 0.08 percent to Rs 47,775 for 10 grams at 9.40 am. December silver futures were marginally up 0.02 percent at Rs 65,001 a kilogram.
A day earlier, gold was steady at Rs 48,171 on rupee appreciation and subdued global trends. The precious metal managed to trade above $1,800 on rising coronavirus cases in China and inflationary pressure globally.
At home, gold retreated from the resistance level of Rs 48,300. The dollar, which moves opposite to gold, gained ground by 0.21 percent in the previous session. US bond yields also inched up after two days of downwards movement. Strong US Consumer confidence and new home sales data put pressure on gold and silver prices.
More downside is expected in gold and silver. On MCX, gold has support at Rs 47,450, while for silver, it is seen at Rs 64,400, said Abhishek Chauhan, Head of Commodity & Currency, Swastika Investmart.

MCX gold is technically in a very strong uptrend, taking cues from the Comex gold, which is supported by increasing worries about inflation in the US.
The increasing demand in domestic gold due to improved retail buying and rising footfall at jewellery showrooms due to lucrative discounts and offers has held the prices.
