However on daily chart, we notice the higher bottom formations and also the recent high of Rs 48,200. Chances are high that this recent October high will also be surpassed & that will confirm the intermediate uptrend. From the perspective of seasonality, the month of November has been moderately bullish for Gold in past five years and as long as Gold December keeps above Rs 47,230, there are possibility for yellow metal to take higher highs from the current levels.”

Nish Bhatt, Founder & CEO, Millwood Kane International: “Indians’ love for gold knows no bounds, it is the second-largest consumer of gold. In the run-up to the festive and marriage season coupled with unlocking across India, the demand for gold is likely to pick up, helping the price. After posting stellar gains for the past few years, the yellow metal has been trading range-bound in the past 12 months. Concerns of tapering, strengthening dollar, and high rate of vaccination have dampened prospects for gold. Going forward, the actions by the global central banks mainly the US Fed on the liquidity tightening will guide gold prices.”
