What Analysts Say:

Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: “Gold price in MCX traded in a range bound zone last week taking cues from global market and stronger treasury yields. The expectation of early stimulus tapering by Fed is keeping us dragging gold prices down whereas fear of economic bottlenecks towards it’s recovery is increasing the safe haven appeal. The demand of gold is also expected to increase during the festive season. We expect gold to be range bound this week with an upward bias.”

He suggested, “Buy Zone above – Rs 47,750 for the target of Rs 48,000; Sell Zone below – Rs 47,500 for the target of Rs 47,300.”
