Gold and silver rebounded again on August 13 after a survey showed disappointing consumer sentiments in the United States.
The dollar index slipped to a one-week low and the benchmark 10-year bond yield also slipped below 1.30 percent on August 13 and supported both the precious metals, data shows.
“Short coverings and bargain-buying at lower levels also supported gold and silver at lower levels. We expect both the precious metals to remain volatile this week ahead of the Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting minutes,” Manoj Kumar Jain, Director, Head-Commodity & Currency Research, Prithvifinmart Commodity Research, said.
“At MCX, gold has support at 46,700-46,550 and resistance at 47,180-47,400. Silver is having support at 62,600-62,100 and resistance at 63,800-64,400,” he said.
Jain suggests buying in gold on dips around Rs 46,800 with a stop loss of Rs 46,500 for the target of Rs 47,400 and in silver around Rs 62,900 with a stop loss of Rs 62,200 for the target of Rs 64,400.Disclaimer: The views and investment tips expressed by experts on Moneycontrol.com are their own and not those of the website or its management.
