Head of commodity research at Kotak Securities Limited, Ravindra Rao said, “COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1,812 per ounce after a 1 per cent decline on Friday. Gold is pressurised by some recovery in the US dollar index from recent lows on the back of upbeat economic data. However, supporting the gold price is Fed’s less hawkish stance, increasing concerns about China and rising virus cases. ETF investors moved to sidelines after brief inflows last week. Gold has come under pressure after failing to break past recent high near $1,835 per ounce and while choppy trade is likely, prices may remain supported by increasing economic uncertainty and Fed’s less hawkish stance.”
