COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1839/oz after a 0.3% gain yesterday. Pause in US dollar’s decline has put some pressure on gold. Also weighing on price is weaker investor interest and improvement in virus situation.
However, supporting price is Fed’s cautious tone on US economy and hopes of additional US stimulus. Gold may witness choppy trade amid lack of fresh cues however there is a possibility of correction if US dollar manages to recover.
