International gold prices ended near three-week lows on Wednesday as robust US economic data lifted the dollar. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits tumbled 71,000 to a seasonally adjusted 199,000 for the week ended November 20, while US GDP increased at a 2.1% annualized rate slightly up from the 2.0% pace of expansion reported in October.
On the inflation side of things, the core PCE price index, which is the Fed's preferred inflation measure, accelerated 4.1% in the 12 months through October after a 3.7% advance in September.
However, gold continued to struggle this week on expectations that the Fed may begin to ramp up its tapering or bring rate hikes at a more rapid pace than previously anticipated.
Domestic gold & silver ended flat to marginally higher, while Bullion Index ended flat to marginally lower on Wednesday. Trading could be lackluster as U.S is on a holiday for Thanksgiving.

Gold and silver held steady after FOMC minutes and most of the Federal Reserve officials are not in hurry to raise interest rates. Inflation will subside significantly in 2022, believes the committee members. Lockdown in Germany will also support safe haven buying in precious metals.

Silver has support at $23.20-22.94 per troy ounce and resistance at $23.80-24.10 per troy ounce. At mcx, gold support is at 47250-47100 and resistance at 47660-47850.

We suggest buying gold around 47400 with a stop loss of 47180 for the target of 47800 and silver around 62500 with a stop loss of 61900 for the target of 63600.
