Meanwhile, the US dollar index was down 0.1%, making greenback-priced bullion more affordable to overseas buyers.

“Gold prices got support from China dropping key interest rates for mortgages. Physical gold premiums in India rose to more than four-month highs as demand picked up. The demand for gold in India is expected to increase to 800-900 tonnes in the calendar year 2024. Traders are also looking forward to the release of the minutes from the last FOMC meeting of Fed," said Ajay Kedia, Director, Kedia Advisory.

According to Kedia, gold trading range for the day is 61,790 - 62,450. Gold may find support at 61,980, while it may face resistance at 62,310 level.

Kedia suggests buying MCX gold April contract at 62,000 with a stop loss of 61,800 and target of 62,250 - 62,450.

The minutes of the US central bank’s January policy meeting will be released later today. According to a narrow majority of economists polled by Reuters, the Fed will likely lower the federal funds rate in June. The greater risk is that the first rate cut would occur later than forecast rather than earlier.

Meanwhile, for silver, Kedia suggests buying at 70,700 with a stop loss at 70,200 and for a target of 71,400 - 71,900.

“Silver price may face resistance at 73,110, while support for silver is seen at 72,540 level," Kedia said.
