The gold market has reversed its previous gains after Fed Chairman Powell said tightening monetary policy could be more aggressive if inflation does not subside. Gold is again near the জো 1800 support zone. On the MCX, the rupee appreciated after hitting an all-time low yesterday, pushing the price below Rs 50,000 on the MCX. There is a headache for gold in the near future and we would advise investors to refrain from creating long positions. Gold is close to its oversold zone and so expect some technical bounce back but the initial trend still remains bearish.
