COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $ 1900 / oz after a modest 0.4% gain in previous session when it tested fresh June 2021 highs. Gold eased back from recent highs as market reaction to Russia-Ukraine tensions subsided as western reaction to Russia’s troop movement was not seen as severe. US bond yields bounced back from lows while the US dollar index shed some of its recent gains. ETF investors also moved to sidelines. Gold has retreated after failing to break past the $ 1920 / oz level and we may see volatile trade as market players react to development relating to Russia however the general bias remains positive as geopolitical tensions are unlikely to subside soon.

Yesterday we have seen that MCX gold prices increased by 0.50% at 50328 levels and silver increased by 1.19% at 64345 levels. More sanctions and geopolitical tensions increased safe haven demand of bullions. Higher crude oil prices also supportive for gold as hedge against inflation. For today, traders can buy gold around 50200 levels with the stoploss of 49850 for the target of 50900 levels. They can also go for buy in mcx silver at 64000 levels with the stoploss of 63350 for the target of 65500 levels. In international market gold may test $ 1925 very soon.

Gold continues to hover near its nine months peak, near the $ 1900 level, amid the uncertainties rising between the US, and Russia over Ukraine. In the latter half of yesterday’s session profit booking was seen from the highs, as some reports mentioned a possibility of a peace treaty and we witnessed better than expected US economic data. The Biden administration could deprive Russia of a vast swath of low- and high-tech US and foreign-made goods, if it further invades Ukraine. The US, EU and Britain announced plans to target banks and elites while Germany halted a major gas pipeline project from Russia, which they say has amassed more than 150,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders. After positive Manufacturing, Service PMI and consumer confidence reported yesterday, the economic calendar is muted for the day. Market participants are also keeping an eye on the comments from Fed officials regarding monetary policy changes and overall outlook of the economy. Broader trend on COMEX could be in the range of $ 1885- 1920 and on domestic front prices could hover in the range of Rs 50,000- 50,900.
