Commenting on the bullion market, Tapan Patel, Senior Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “Gold prices got support from a weaker dollar and lower bond yields. Gold prices may attract safe-haven buying over weak equity indices and recession worries. The global equity markets were down over concerns that tightening monetary policies might slow economic growth. We expect gold prices to trade sideways to up for the day with COMEX spot gold support at $1820 and resistance at $1850 per ounce. MCX Gold Aug support lies at Rs. 50,600 and resistance at Rs. 51,100 per 10 grams.”
