Ravindra Rao, CMT, EPAT, VP- Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities:
COMEX gold trades little changed near $1815/oz after a 0.8 per cent gain yesterday. Gold continues to take cues from US dollar and bond yields as market players shift focus from virus situation to FOMC minutes which may give more clarity on Fed's monetary policy stance. Gold continues to trade in a range near $1800/oz and this may continue unless there are fresh triggers however Fed's tightening expectations could keep US dollar supported and this may weigh on gold price.
Amit Khare, AVP- Research Commodities, Ganganagar Commodity Limited:
