What's pulling down gold, silver price today

On why gold and silver rate today is trading tepid Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities said, "Gold and silver rate today is under pressure as US dollar has surged to 10-month high in last few sessions. This rise in US dollar can be attributed to the rise in optimism for breakthrough in US debt ceiling talks. Market is expecting that expected breakthrough may bring US economy on track as investment will start taking place in terms of US dollar."

Expecting further downside trend in bullion metals, Deveya Gaglani, Research Analyst - Commodities at Axis Securities said, "Gold prices extended their bearish trend for the third consecutive day, with the settlement around 59372, breaching the crucial support zone at the 59,500 level. Notably, the daily chart reveals a fresh multi-month low, accompanied by trading below the 20 and 60 Exponential Moving Averages (EMA). Furthermore, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is approaching the 40 level, indicating strong downward momentum in the market. Adding to the negative sentiment, the probability of a rate hike in the upcoming June meeting has increased to 60 per cent, which could potentially serve as a catalyst for further downside pressure on gold."

On important levels in regard to gold and silver prices, Sugandha Sachdeva, Executive Director & Chief Strategist at Acme Investment Advisors said, "Gold prices have support at the 59,100 to 59,200 per 10 gm zone, or $1935 per ounce mark, and are likely to witness a bounce back towards 60,400 per 10 gm in the coming days; otherwise, a breach of this support zone can lead to a fall towards the 58,500 10 gm mark. As for silver, prices have strong support at the 69,500 per kg mark, and if that holds, expect buying interest to resume in coming days."
