US gold futures settled 1.3% higher at $2417.40 per ounce. Silver rate for July delivery rose $1.38 to $31.26 per ounce. Spot gold prices are up over 2% so far this week.

“Bullion rose, buoyed by increased expectations of Federal Reserve interest rate cuts, firm central banks buying, and safe-haven demand. Earlier signs of a slowdown in US consumer inflation and stagnant retail sales have provided the Fed with more leeway to initiate monetary easing. While policymakers haven't officially changed their stance, markets are already pricing in first rate reductions for 2024," said Ajay Kedia, Director of Kedia Advisory.

Gold rate also gathered steam after the major consumer China announced “historic" steps to stabilise the crisis-hit property sector.

Meanwhile, traders expect roughly two quarter-point cuts from the US Federal Reserve this year, with November being the most likely starting point. Lower interest rates tend to boost non-yielding bullion’s appeal.

According to Kedia, gold prices may find support at 72,406 and resistance is placed at 74,438. Support for silver is seen at 86,172 and resistance at 94,331 level.

He suggests buying gold June contract at 73,400 with a stop loss placed at 73,000 level, for a target of 74,000 - 74,400. Kedia also recommends buying Silver July contract at 90,200, with a stop loss at 88,800 and for a target price of 91,600 - 93,200.
