Speaking on the major levels in regard to gold rate today, Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities said, "Gold prices have strong support at $1,810 per ounce levels and it is facing resistance at $1,860 levels. As US non-farm payroll data is going to dictate gold prices today, my suggestion to gold traders and investors is to maintain buy on dips around support level and avoid taking any shot position. On MCX, one can buy gold around 55,000 levels for immediate target of 55,700 maintaining stop loss at 54,750 per 10 gm levels."
