Foreign Exchange Rates:

Globally, gold prices were steady as concerns about a faster pace of policy tightening by the U.S. central bank countered safe-haven demand fuelled by escalating tension over Ukraine. Spot gold was little changed at $1,841.44 per ounce. U.S. gold futures were also steady at $1,842.10.

Analyst View:

Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: "Concern over rising inflation and Russia-Ukraine discord has kept the safe-haven appeal intact. Investors are mainly awaiting the U.S. Federal Reserve's meeting for clues on its interest rate hikes. Gold prices may see some profit booking after the Fed meeting."

He suggested, "Buy Zone above - Rs 48,600 for the target of Rs 48,800. Sell Zone below - Rs 48,250 for the target of Rs 48,000."

Amit Khare, AVP - Research Commodities, Ganganagar Commodity Ltd: "Gold and silver prices are now showing some strength again. Momentum indicator RSI also cited the same in hourly as well as daily charts. So traders are advised to create fresh longs near given support levels. They should focus on important technical levels given for the day: February Gold closing price Rs 48,564, Support 1 - Rs 48,480, Support 2 - Rs 48,300, Resistance 1 - Rs 48,650, Resistance 2 - Rs 48,800. March Silver closing price Rs 63,958, Support 1 - Rs 63,500, Support 2 - Rs 63,000, Resistance 1 - Rs 64,400, Resistance 2 - Rs 65,000."
