Gold continued its weakness on Thursday on the back of a stronger US Dollar. The sentiments around bullion are currently down and are likely to remain like this in the near term, Expert Anuj Gupta, Vice President (VP), Commodity and Currency Research at IIFL said. Gold and Silver Futures were trading lower from the last closing price on Wednesday and the movement is expected to remain muted today on the intraday basis, Gupta said.
Among the key triggers higher US Dollar rate has been among the immediate triggers that has kept the upward movement in check. Over the past two weeks other important factors that have contributed to the price movements (upwards or downwards) have been bond yields, inflation numbers, interest rate commentary by US Federal reserve and US job numbers.
For traders, the strategy remains that of Selling in Gold and Silver futures, Gupta said.

Gupta, however, said that the existing weakness is a good investment opportunity for long term investors. June has been a good month for investors who have been planning to make fresh investments in yellow metal as the prices have come down appreciable this month not just in Gold but silver as well.
Gupta said that the MCX Gold Futures have become cheaper by over 4.6 per cent in June while MCX Silver Futures prices have come down by over 6 per cent during this period. In terms of value, Gold Futures prices have dipped by over Rs 2300 per 10 gram while Silver Futures prices by Rs 4000 per kg.
As for domestic prices, the fall has started reflecting not only on exchanges but in the physical markets too, Gupta said. In Delhi, the price of physical gold has come down to Rs 47,500 per 10 gram while that of silver is Rs 68,500, Gupta said.
In Noida jewellery markets, the prices are more or less similar, the VP said.
He expects more correction in the international prices, going forward, but that could have limited impact because of strengthening US Dollar leading higher exchange rates.
