Analysts View:

Manoj Dalmia, Founder and Director, Proficient Equities Ltd.: “Several technical evidences pointing out that gold will likely remain pretty bullish in near future. The adjoined weekly chart of MCX December contract shows that the intermediate downtrend had terminated early October with a falling wedge pattern. The breakout was accompanied by good volume as well. The short term target for gold is now Rs 50,500. Corrections will therefore be buying opportunities in gold with stop loss at supports over Rs 48,870 and Rs 48,200.”

Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: “The higher US bond yields and stronger dollar pushed gold prices lower yesterday. However, the inflation concerns has increased the safe haven appeal which is providing support to gold prices. This tug of war between bulls and bears is keeping gold in the range bound zone. We expect gold to show some upward move this week. Buy Zone near – Rs 49,100 for the target of Rs 49,500; Sell Zone below – Rs 49,000 for the target of Rs 48,700.”
