COMEX gold trades little changed near $1749/oz after a sharp 1.6% decline yesterday. Weighing on gold price is firmness in equity markets, weaker investor interest and Fed’s projection of early rate hikes.
However, supporting price are global growth worries amid disappointing economic data and concerns about the Chinese economy.
Gold's sharp fall has dented market sentiment however a sustained decline is unlikely as economic data and rising raw material price reflect increasing challenges to the global economy.

The precious metal witnessed a deep cut in prices amid the increasing interest of market participants in global equity markets.
Equity markets are flying high after the FOMC commentary which set the table for future tapering of its bond-buying program and an increase in its interest rates in the Year 2022.
Gold prices are unable to sustain despite the looming inflation threat in the economy and maybe losing the safe-haven status for the near term.
Gold on MCX is also trading negative and bears have the overall technical advantage. The outlook for the precious metals is negative and markets participants will be better off in finding shorting opportunities.
