On the domestic front, Nirmal Bang, a brokerage firm, forecasts a potential rise in gold prices. “One can buy at Rs 71,700 with a stop loss of Rs 71,450, targeting Rs 72,000-72,200. Alternatively, selling at Rs 72,200 with a stop loss of Rs 72,500 is advised,” the firm reported.

Praveen Singh, Associate VP at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas, commented on the metal’s outlook: “Today’s US data, including April’s PPI, will be closely watched by gold traders. The UK’s March job report is also significant. We expect gold to trade between $2,320 and $2,360 with a downward bias. Support levels are at $2,334/$2,320/$2,300, and resistance levels at $2,350/$2,380.”

Technical View – MCX Gold

On Monday, global gold prices fell ahead of key US inflation data, which may influence the Federal Reserve’s rate decisions. Domestically, gold saw profit booking and formed a bearish candlestick pattern on the daily chart, indicating possible continued consolidation. The support for MCX Gold is at 71,200/70,870 levels, with a breakdown of 70,220 potentially testing 69,650 levels. Resistance is seen at 72,450/72,890/73,300/73,500-74,000 levels. Analysts at Way 2 Wealth suggest maintaining a bullish stance on gold with strict stop-losses due to expected volatility ahead of the US inflation data release.
