The MCX Gold could appreciate as the dollar index edged down, entering a third consecutive session under pressure, with investors favoring riskier currencies and asset classes. Nonetheless, the United States Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve the COVID-19 treatment pills from Pfizer Inc and Merck as early as Wednesday. Therefore, the increase can be limited. MCX Gold February can go up to 48,200 per 10 grams.

Gold fell for a second straight rally due to a rally in the stock markets. Traders have chosen to largely ignore the potential economic risks that could arise from the new Omicron variant. The rebound in yields on US Treasuries and a better appetite for risk (especially the equity asset class) have been negative for demand for safe havens like gold. Reports of telephone conversations between US President Biden and Senator Joe Manchin also gave investors hope that Biden’s spending bill could be revived. Gold has again failed to hold above $ 1,800 and it looks like there won’t be a Santa rally for precious metals. As the holiday season approaches, we don’t see gold going above $ 1,800 and we expect gold to trade between $ 1,760 and $ 1,800 this week. In MCX, support is around 47800 and resistance is around 49000.

COMEX gold trading mixed near $ 1,790 / oz after falling 0.3% in the previous session. Gold hit record highs as risk sentiment stabilized somewhat as US bond yields edged up. However, support prices persist amid the increasing spread of the variant and restrictions imposed to limit its spread. ETF investors have also moved away, indicating a lack of direction. Gold could stay in a range, but the Fed’s tightening outlook could keep the US dollar strong and this could weigh on prices
