Akshaya Tritiya is considered an auspicious day to buy gold and usually we see buying some demand ahead of it and also on that particular day. Overall, the MCX gold price continues to exhibit a strong solid show after a big blowout of the US Nonfarm payrolls data. After hitting a more than two weeks low of 46462 MCX Gold made a reversal thereafter to currently trade around 47900. The Immediate resistance is at 48250 and then at 48360.

The love for the yellow metal among Indians is no secret, and buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya is considered auspicious. But this time around gold buying may get affected due to the outbreak of the second wave of COVID in cities in India. It is advisable for investors and gold buyers to not venture out during these times and opt for digital/paper gold instead of physical gold. Gold prices are on an up move, helped by the weak jobs data, softness in the USD, a broader view that the interest rates will be low in the US for a long time. Gold prices are trading near a 3-month high in international markets, domestically gold prices are hovering near the Rs 48,000/10 gm level. The vaccination drive, control over the number of cases, and lockdowns internationally coupled with the movement of the USD will drive prices of gold moving forward.

The recent uptick in the Indian Rupee against USD will definitely help traders to adjust their valuation after considering inflation expectation. Further, RBI is letting Rupee to appreciate in a given environment to calm down the pessimistic sentiment.

As mentioned, all eyes will be on US and India CPI data. Amit Pabari, manging director, CR Forex Advisors
