Gold market is struggling after Yellen’s comments on the debt ceiling as the U.S. Treasury yields climbed to three-month highs. Powell’s confirmation of tapering from November till middle of the next year in front of congress also put pressure on gold prices. Gold prices have been lower for four straight weeks. Prices have also breached the support of $1750 and expect them to remain under pressure. MCX Gold has some support in the form of weak Indian Rupee so expect some cushion around 45600. Today’s range is expected to be 45700-46200.
