Mr Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities:
''COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1791/oz after a 0.6 per cent decline yesterday. Gold trades marginally lower amid stability in equity markets and rise in bond yields from recent lows. ETF flows also show weaker investor interest.
However, supporting price is rising virus concerns, setback in US spending bill negotiations, concerns about Chinese economy and geopolitical issues. Gold may remain choppy reflecting larger financial markets however Fed's tightening expectations may continue to weigh.''
