Why gold, silver prices are falling?

On why gold and silver rate today are under pressure, Deveya Gaglani, Research Analyst — Commodities at Axis Securities said, “Weakness in gold and silver price today can be attributed to rise in Dollar Index after better-than-expected US inflation data. Furthermore, a set of fresh economic data released from the United States served to underscore current trends of lower inflation and a slower labor market. This has led to a growing expectation that the Federal Reserve may pause its tightening cycle in the upcoming meeting."

Axis Securities expert went on to add that the producer inflation rate dropped more than anticipated in April, lending credence to hopes of subdued prices following a cooler-than-forecasted CPI print for the period.

On pivot levels that gold investors should remember, Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities said, “Gold price has immediate support placed at $2,010 levels and on breaching this level on closing basis, next support for the yellow metal lies at $1,975 levels." On MCX, gold rate today has support placed at 59,500 levels, he said.

On outlook for gold and silver prices, Deveya Gaglani of Axis Securities said, “Overall, the current outlook for MCX gold and silver prices are moderately bearish, given the recent developments in the US economy and their potential implications for monetary policy."
