Further weakness will provide an opportunity to buy

Prices for gold and silver dropped by around 2%, supporting a bearish view on the FED’s hawkish shift towards further rate hikes that increased the value of the dollar. Traders may need to pause before concluding that the FED has finished tightening after inflation and jobs metrics consistently beat market expectations. Since inflation is still high and the most recent data showed a rise in consumer prices above expectations, the FED may choose to use 50 basis points during its upcoming policy meetings.

Other headlines that dominated the market last week are:

• In 2022, China imported 1,343 tonnes of gold, the most since 2018. The total amount of gold imported for the year increased by 64% from 2021.

• India’s imports of gold in January fell by 76% from a year earlier to a 32-month low due to weak demand after domestic prices soared to all-time highs and as jewellers put off purchases in anticipation of a drop in import duties. In January, the nation imported 11 tonnes of gold, down from 45 tonnes the previous month.

• Recent weeks have seen an increase in Treasury yields due to a string of extremely positive economic data. The yield on a 10-year Treasury note is almost back to where it was at the beginning of the year, and the yield on a two-year note is higher than it was in 2023.

Technically, Gold has fallen further and is now clearly below the 55-DMA, currently seen at Rs 56300. This increases the likelihood of further losses towards the long-term 200-DMA, currently seen around Rs 55000, which we expect to floor the precious metal and will offer an opportunity to buy.
