India Gold MCX August futures are trading higher on June 1 tracking the positive trend in the international spot prices which were trading near five-month high boosted by a weaker dollar and growing inflationary pressures.
Spot gold was trading around at $1,911.45 per ounce, after hitting its highest since Jan. 8 at $1,914.26 earlier in the session, said a Reuters report. The dollar index was down 0.3% against its rivals, making gold less expensive for other currency holders.
On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), August gold contracts were trading higher by 0.27 percent at Rs 49,483 for 10 grams at 09:30 hours. July silver futures were trading 0.93 percent higher at Rs 72,565 a kilogram.
Gold August futures contract settled at $1905.30 per troy ounce, and silver July futures contract settled at $28.01 per troy ounce. Both the precious metals settled on a positive note in the domestic markets.
Gold and silver gained smartly in the month of May amid inflation concerns and weakness in the dollar, suggest experts. Gold rose by about 8 percent to post its highest monthly gain in the last 10 months while silver posted its biggest monthly gain since December 2020.
“We expect both the precious metals to remain steady and weakness in the dollar continue to support prices. Gold has support at $1896-1884 per troy ounce and resistance at $1914-1933 per troy ounce,” Manoj Kumar Jain, Director, Head-Commodity & Currency Research at Prithvifinmart Commodity Research said.
“At MCX, Gold has a support at 49180-48950 and resistance at 49580-49800 levels, and Silver has support at 71400-70900 and resistance at 72400-73000 levels,” he said.
Jain suggests buying in gold around 49200 with a stop loss of 48950 for the target of 49600 and in silver around 71500 with a stop loss of 70800 for the target of 72800.

COMEX gold trades marginally higher by 0.35% near $1912/oz after a 0.4% gain on Friday. Gold continues to hold above $1900/oz as Fed and other central banks emphasize on continuing with loose monetary policy.
However, ETF outflows and weaker demand in India amid continuing virus-related restrictions might cap the gains. Gold has continued to hold above $1900/oz however any sustained rise may be challenged by a pause in the US dollar index fall.
