Analysts View:

Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: “Gold prices has fallen in a range bound zone since last few trading sessions as anticipated high and sustained inflation is supporting the prices whereas reduced Covid cases has increased the investment in riskier assets once again. In the lack of any fresh trigger this week, we expect gold prices to trade between Rs 48,500 to Rs 49,300 with an upward bias. Gold is having a strong resistance near Rs 49,500 levels in MCX. Any breakout above Rs 49,500 will start a new trading territory in gold prices. Buy Zone above – Rs 48,950 for the target of Rs 49,300; Sell Zone below – Rs 48,800 for the target of Rs 48,600.”
