Gold weakens

FXStreet (Mumbai) - Gold prices have declined slightly from a day’s high of USD 1245, although prices remain well supported on growth concerns.

Gold is trading 0.44% lower at USD 1239.10/Oz, tracking minor gains in the US Treasury yields. The Asian equity markets are trading mixed with the Asx up 0.18%, while the Nifty down 0.11%. The Chinese markets are trading 0.64% lower while the Nikkei is down 2.22% today. Moreover, the losses in the Japanese equity markets are driven by a sharp decline in the USD/JPY exchange rate.

The yellow metal had clocked a 4-week high of USD 1250/Oz yesterday, after the US Ten-year Treasury yields slumped below 2%. The Gold prices may extend losses today as the European equity futures are pointing to a strong opening.

Gold Technical levels

Gold has an immediate resistance of 1245, above which prices can re-test yesterday’s high of 1250 levels. On the flip side, Gold can decline to 1233 levels if the immediate support of 1238 is taken out.

Czech Republic Producer Price Index (MoM): -0.3% (September) vs previous 0%
