Gold yesterday climbed above $1900 but broke below $1900 during closing hours. Any correction might be shallow and short lived at best as the major fundamental drivers who have taken gold substantially higher are absolutely still in play. Gold has solid support at $1848 where 200 day moving average is. It should also be noted that in COMEX, gold has witnessed a golden cross between 50 and 100 day exponential moving averages. Last time gold tried to break and close above $1900 was in January and still it remains a key resistance level. In MCX, gold has managed to cross above its 200 day exponential moving average but still has to give closing above it. Rs 48,200-47,900 is a good support level for gold and any probable dip around that level is a good opportunity to go long with stop loss of Rs 47,200 and target of Rs 49,600. Next resistance for gold comes between Rs 49,500-49,700.

There is some volatility in gold on the rising dollar as investors are awaiting the US personal consumption report to gauge inflationary pressure, US GDP and jobless claims data all due later today. The safe-haven demand will remain intact but any upbeat data point may put upward pressure on dollar, thus if MCX gold breaks the crucial support of Rs 48,600, we may see a fall towards Rs 47,900, while Rs 50,000 will act as a crucial resistance.

Gold has corrected from Jan. highs amid some recovery in US dollar and profit-taking by ETF investors. However, supporting price is choppiness in equity markets, loose monetary policy stance of major central banks and China’s efforts to limit raw material prices. Gold has rallied sharply in last few days and is now seeing some profit-taking which may extend if the US dollar recovers further or if equity markets stabilize.”
