Major triggers for gold price rally
Speaking on the triggers that will fuel gold price rally Amit Sajeja, Vice President — Research at Motilal Oswal said, "Major trigger for gold price rally is the rising COVID-19 cases globally. Fast approaching marriage season and record rise in the COVID-19 cases in India will further help gold price to recover its lost ground after it made its bottom at $1,670 per ounce in the international market."
Sajeja went on to add that gold price in the international market has strong support at $1,670 while its immediate support is $1,700 per ounce levels. He said that till gold price in the international market is above $1,700 overall sentiment for the bullion metal will remain bullish and any dip to the tune of 4-5 per cent should be seen as a buying opportunity.
Gold price prediction
Commenting upon the gold price outlook; Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Commodities & Currency Trade at IIFL Securities said, "Gold price at MCX in the next two month may hit ₹48,000 per 10 gm as upcoming marriage season in India will lead to rise in demand for physical gold. Apart from this, second wave of COVID-19 has hit equity, bond and other investment yield and if this trend continues for next fortnight, gold may emerge as investors have again."
Asked about the gold price prediction for both short-term and medium-term Amit Sajeja of Motilal Oswal said, "In short-term, we can expect gold price at MCX to go up to ₹49,000 while in the medium-term or in the next six months, the precious metal price may go up to ₹50,500 per 10 gm."
