Foreign Exchange Rates:

Globally, gold prices moved higher, supported by a dip in the U.S. dollar and Treasury yields. Spot gold was up 0.3 per cent at $1,925.75 per ounce. U.S. gold futures rose 0.6 per cent to $1,930.10. Although, signs of progress in Russia-Ukraine peace talks dented the yellow metal's appeal as a safe haven and kept gains in check.

Analyst View:

Ravi Singh, Vice-President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: "Gold prices continue to be in correction mode this week also on the hope of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine. However, the new lockdown imposed in China on a possible outbreak of new variant may keep gold volatile."

He suggested, "Buy Zone above - Rs 50,900 for the target of Rs 51,200. Sell Zone below - Rs 50,600 for the target of Rs 50,300."

Amit Khare, AVP - Research Commodities, Ganganagar Commodity Ltd: "Market are very volatile nowadays due to the Russia-Ukraine crisis. As per the technical chart, gold and silver are now showing weakness. Momentum indicator RSI also cited the same in hourly as well as the daily chart. So traders are advised to create fresh sell positions near given resistance levels.
