The recently published US CPI data showed a little improvement ahead of US Fed meet next week. This is keeping the bullion market under pressure. The risk sentiment has failed the yellow metal to gain today in the international markets, thus impacting the Indian gold rates negatively.
A report mentioned, "A stronger-than-expected Empire State manufacturing survey released earlier today fell into the camp of the US monetary policy hawks, and that helped to pressure the gold and silver markets." It added, "Bulls' next upside price objective is to produce a close above solid resistance at the July high of $1,836.20. Bears' next near-term downside price objective is pushing futures prices below solid technical support at $1,750.00." However, if the yellow metal loses its resistance, the gold rates will fall again in the upcoming days, in the global markets.
