Foreign Exchange Rates:
Globally, gold prices edged up as the dollar eased, although hawkish comments by U.S. Federal Reserve policymakers dented the metal's appeal and kept it well below the key $1,800 mark. Spot gold rose 0.2 per cent to $1,791.76 per ounce, after slipping to its lowest since November 4 on Wednesday. U.S. gold futures added 0.4 per cent to $1,791.60.
Ravi Singh, Vice President and Head of Research, ShareIndia: "Comex gold prices remain subdued as robust U.S. economic data lifted the dollar and Treasury yields ahead of minutes from the Federal Reserve's November meeting that could provide cues on future interest rate hikes. Also, the government's reported proposal to hike GST on gold jewellery to five per cent from three per cent will be a setback to the rebounding jewellery industry in India. We expect gold prices to remain weak till it crosses the level of Rs 47,700 in MCX."
He suggested, "Buy Zone above - Rs 47,700 for the target of Rs 48,000; Sell Zone below - Rs 47,300 for the target of Rs 47,000."
