Asian Metals Market Update: May-24-2017

By: Chintan Karnani, Insignia Consultants

 -- Published: Wednesday, 24 May 2017 | Print  | Disqus 

The UK terror attack has failed to support gold and silver. There is some speculation that Indian demand for gold and silver is higher as jewelers expect higher tax rates on the GST front (Goods and Services Tax). GST rates on gold, silver and jewelry sales will be finalized on 3rd June. Gold and silver demand will fall after 3rd June as jewelers reduce buying. I do not expect the Modi government to lend support to the jewelers of India. The Modi led NDA government has increased taxes on every industry which is labour intensive. Jewelry making is still a labour intensive industry.


The direction of the US dollar is the key for now. Gold and silver fell as the US dollar gained yesterday. Iran is once again the hotbed for American bloodshed after North Korea and Syria. Trade sanctions have failed to affect Iran. Trump’s speech in Israel suggests that over the coming months there will be bloodshed between NATO and Iran. In the short term gold and silver can fall. Medium term to long term bullishness is intact.


There is massive speculation of Trump’s impeachment. I asked my friend Peter Spina of on this. According to him, it could happen next year. Trump’s woes will be bullish for bullion.


COMEX GOLD JUNE 2017 – current price $1251.30

Bullish over $1255.80 with $1265.10 and $1272.30 as price target

Bearish below $1249.40 with $1241.30 and $1228.80 as price target.

Neutral Zone between: $1249.40-$1255.80

  • Gold needs to trade over $1249 to prevent a fall to $1241 and $1228.
  • Rise only if gold trades over $1256 either in the UK session or the US session.

MCX GOLD JUNE – prices in Indian rupees below

Key support is at 28689. Gold needs to trade over 28689 to rise to 29025. Sell off only below 28689 to 28591 and  28372. Remain on the sidelines despite the mildly bearish trend.
