By Ravindra Rao Gold witnessed a sell off from higher levels as the bulls failed in keeping it above Rs 48000. Although the short term trend is positive, some more corrective move is possible. Resistance for the day is pegged at Rs 47700 and strong resistance near Rs 48000. RSI is close to 50 indicating a sideways move. Support is near Rs 47290 and strong support is close to Rs 47000. For the day, we expect price to trade with a negative bias until Rs 48000 holds. Immediate downside objective would be Rs 47290. Only a break above Rs 48000 might once again give bulls the edge to take it past Rs 48400.
Sell MCX Gold June at Rs 47700 with a target price of Rs 47290 and a stop loss at Rs 47960.
