Supportive US Federal Reserve minutes and weak United States PMIs and Jobless Claims data triggered a fresh sell-off in the US dollar, leading to gold’s gain.
"Gold and silver prices rose and closed above key levels on Thursday, benefitted from a weaker dollar as the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting showed that a growing number of members supported a slower pace of interest rate hikes. Precious metals prices jumped into positive territory as flash manufacturing and service-sector PMI data falls into contraction territory. Gold has support at $1744-1734 while resistance at $1764-1774. Silver has support at $21.35-21.22, while resistance is at $21.78-21.95.

“COMEX Gold trades higher by 0.60 per cent at $1756/oz as the dollar fell after the release of FOMC meeting minutes on Wednesday. The minutes were out yesterday and as expected it showed a majority of the policymakers were with the view of slower rate hikes as the aggressive stance is impacting economic growth. The US Dollar index closed near a day low of 106.03, a fall of more than 1%. Although the minutes indicated the end of jumbo rate hikes, the policymakers were uncertain about when will be the endpoint of the rate hikes. Smaller rate hikes by Fed are positive for precious metals, especially gold which had witnessed deep corrections since Fed started the jumbo rate hikes. On the price front after a Doji candlestick formation on Tuesday a high wave candlestick has been formed indicating the start of bullish momentum after a brief correction. Support remains near the $1740-1735/oz zone which needs to penetrate on a closing and sustaining basis. Till then there is a good probability of a recovery back to $1762/oz followed by $1778/oz,” said Ravindra V. Rao, CMT, EPAT VP-Head Commodity Research Kotak Securities Ltd.
