Gupta, who is Vice President (VP), Commodity and Currency Research at IIFL Securities recommends selling as Dollar Index strength and treasury yields weigh on the prospects of yellow metal.
“The dollar climbed to a fresh two-decade peak to the yen on Wednesday, buoyed by more Federal Reserve officials pushing for sizeable interest rate hikes, while the Bank of Japan stepped into the market again to defend its ultra-low rate policy,” Gupta said.
His strategy on Silver futures is also ‘Sell’ at 69500 with a stop loss of Rs 70100 and price target of Rs 68000.
On Tuesday, prices had fallen up to 1.8 per cent as a stronger dollar and rising Treasury yields overshadowed safe-haven inflows into the metal, Reuters reported.
On Monday, gold prices came within touching distance of the key USD 2,000 per ounce level as the deteriorating Ukraine crisis and mounting inflation worries drove investors to the safety of gold, this report said.
