Pritam Patnaik, Head - Commodities, HNI and NRI Acquisitions-Axis Securities is quoted in a leading dailies as saying- "Clearly, a robust Dollar index and buoyant treasury yields have inhibited any bullish sentiments. Expect gold prices to remain under pressure for some time now. If $1800 is again breached, a move towards $1780 -$1760 cannot be ruled ou. Bulls will only return if $1845 levels are taken out on the upside."
