Sentiment for gold remains neutral as bulls and bears tug of war. The bulls play the inflation and safe haven cards while the bears play the rate hike cards. With the FOMC meeting over for this month, traders await the latest inflationary data. The US Dollar retreated after the Fed Chairman said the “US economy is very strong and well positioned to handle tighter monetary policy.” The probability of a recession is not particularly high at the moment, which gave bulls comfort, although gold prices remained subdued. Gold in MCX should remain in the 50200-51200 range and should remain neutral until the next inflation data.
