Gold price today: Yellow metal trades flat, buy for a target of Rs 48,200: Experts

Gold may witness choppy trade along with the US dollar, however, the general bias remains positive as the US Fed may continue to emphasize the need for lower rates, said an expert

India Gold June MCX Futures trade flat on May 11 following muted trend in the international spot prices amid rise in the Dollar index.

A rise in the Dollar Index makes gold more expensive for other currency holders. The U.S. currency slipped to a more than two-month low in the previous session after U.S. non-farm payroll data on Friday showed jobs growth unexpectedly slowed in April, said a Reuters report.

On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), June gold contracts were trading lower by 0.01 percent at Rs 47,946 for 10 grams at 0935 hours. July silver futures were trading 0.18 percent lower at Rs 71,416 a kilogram.

Gold and silver showed mixed trends on Monday. Gold extended gains following weak U.S. data but Silver showed some profit-taking amid weakness in the base metals. Both the precious metals settled on a mixed note in the international markets.

“We expect both the precious metals to remain volatile in Tuesday’s session and gold could approach $1850 per troy ounce levels. Gold has support at $1824-1810 per troy ounce and resistance at $1850-1866 per troy ounce. Silver has support at $27.20-26.70 per troy ounce and resistance at $27.84-28.20 per troy ounce,” Manoj Jain, Director (Head-Commodity & Currency Research) at Prithvi Finmart said.

"COMEX gold trades little changed near $1837/oz after a 0.3% gain on May 10. Gold has turned mixed after testing a 3-month high amid choppiness in the US dollar.

The US dollar index turned choppy after hitting Feb low as easing concerns about US Fed's monetary tightening is countered by higher yields and persisting inflation concerns. ETF investors also moved to the sidelines after last week's inflows.

Gold may witness choppy trade along with the US dollar, however, the general bias remains positive as the US Fed may continue to emphasize the need for lower rates.
