Technical Chart – Spot Gold
Source: Telequote 
Spot gold prices declined 0.8 percent as US inflation concerns fadedwhich led to reduction in the demand for the metal as a hedgeagainst inflation. The US Federal Reserve had yesterday in its policymeeting said that the inflation has been below the committee’slonger run objective. This caused selling in the gold prices. However,weakness in the DX cushioned sharp fall in the prices.The yellow metal touched an intra-day low of $1,657.54/oz andclosed at $1,662.99 per ounce on Thursday. On the MCX, GoldFebruary contract ended 1.1 percent lower due to appreciation in theIndian Rupee. MCX gold prices closed at Rs.29,871 per 10 gms onThursday after touching an intra-day low of Rs. 29,794 per 10gm.
Spot silver erased earlier gains of the previous day and ended 1.9percent lower on Thursday. Weakness in the spot gold prices alongwith bearishness in the base metals pack led spot silver prices totrade lower yesterday. However, weakness in the DX cushioned sharpfall in the silver prices. Appreciation in the Indian rupee exerteddownside pressure on the MCX silver prices.The white metal touched an intra-day low of $ 31.1/oz and closed at$ 31.41 per oz on Thursday. In the Indian markets, MCX silver pricesgained 2.1 percent and closed at Rs.57,849/kg on Thursday andtouched an intra-day low of Rs. 57,472/ kg. Appreciation in the rupeepushed prices of white metal lower in yesterday’s session.
 In today’s session, we expect precious metals to trade higher as theeconomic data from the major consuming nations are indicating slowgrowth. Investors might also adopt a cautious approach ahead of the jobs data to be released in the evening today. This is likely to restrictgains in the precious metals. Weakness in the DX might support anupside in the previous metals. In the domestic markets, depreciationin the rupee is likely to act as supportive factor for the preciousmetals on MCX.Technical Outlook
