Gold – Comex& MCX


Recap– Gold prices dropped sharply in the second half of the week. Earlier on Tuesday we saw a breakout above $1330 and immediately prices tested a high of $1352.6 on the same day. Later we see prices started coming down to the previous lows around $1330, to close at $1327.5, erasing all the early gains.

Forecast – As we see prices trading in a range of $1310 to $1350, we expect the sideways movement to continue in coming weeks. MACD had a down line cross over, so we may expect prices to test the lower levels of $1300.

Gold – Comex 1327.5 1317.7 1301 1335.5 1350 Sideways



Recap–Gold in MCX prices closed yesterday in a weak note; earlier prices went up sharply on Tuesday after a break of Rs.31100 to close at 31378. Prices dropped later from its important Resistance level at Rs31500. We see prices trading in the range of Rs.31000 to Rs.31500 for nearly 10 weeks.No sharp decline seen like Comex as INR supported prices to hold.

Forecast–We expect prices could retrace to the lower levels of Rs.31100 in the first half of the week. Then prices could take support level at Rs.31000 – Rs.31100 and next move could be clear on a close below these levels. Need to watch out INR moves also which could have impact on MCX prices.

Silver – Comex& MCX


Recap –Silver went up earlier after a break above $19.5 and tested its important Resistance at $20. Later we see prices unable to hold on the higher level and dropped sharply lower to close at $19.04,near its key support level of $19, particularly on Friday after a break of $19.5

Forecast -We expect Silver prices to trade weak below $19 to target $18.5 in coming days as we see a formation of Head and Shoulders pattern towards $18.5. The $18.5 looks a good buying level for positional targets.
