Reopening economy, hope of coronavirus vaccine, and upbeat US consumer confidence and new home sales data triggered profit-taking in both the precious metals on Tuesday. Gold slipped around 1.5 percent and silver also slipped around 1 percent.
“Despite corrections in the dollar index and US-CHINA tensions both the precious metals unable to get support and settled on a weaker note,” Manoj Jain, Director (Head – Commodity & Currency Research) at Prithvi Finmart Pvt Ltd, told Moneycontrol.
“Hope of further stimulus package from Japan also pushed both the precious metals lower. We expect both the precious metals will get support at lower levels again. Gold future is expected to hold crucial support of $ 1692/INR 45920 and silver is also expected to hold $ 17.20/INR 47200 levels,” he said.
In terms of trading strategy, Jain recommends investors to buy Gold on dips. Gold could be buy around 46150 with a stop loss of 45920 for a target of 46550.
