We have seen a shift in market sentiment amongst money managers as they have been positioning themselves based on the assumption that gold is moving higher. The recent increase of net long positions in gold resulted in an increase in their holdings by almost 30% compared to last week. Gold is comfortably moving above $1800 and the key statement from US Fed chairman which helped gold and equity market lift off was that the timing and pace of the coming reduction in asset purchases will not be intended to carry a direct signal regarding the timing of interest rate liftoff. Next trigger for gold would be jobs data for the month of Aug to be released this Friday. 46800 continue to be strong support and we don’t see any reversal on daily chart yet so we could go with the trend which is bullish. So buy on dips strategy is recommended and we may see gold prices either breaking $1825 on Friday or back to its range of $1785-$1810 depending on the jobs report number. Profit booking before the event is unlikely and so bias should be on long side in gold for traders.

COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1814/oz after a 0.3% gain yesterday. Gold is rangebound amid continuing debate over Fed’s monetary policy. Supporting the price is virus concerns, disappointing US and Chinese economic data and tensions in Afghanistan that is countered by continuing ETF outflows and general positive trend in equities. Gold may waver as market players may remain non-committal ahead of US jobs report however increasing challenges to the global economy may keep price supported.
