Expect the market to continue to be negative, says Pritam Patnaik of Axis Securities. He is Head – Commodities, HNI & NRI Acquisitions.

“The triple impact of an impending US interest rate hike from 0.75% to 1%, a strong dollar and higher bond yields undermined any potential positivity from gold bulls. The Brief Yesterday’s move in gold sold off aggressively, showing the lack of confidence the asset class enjoys among traders and investors,” he said.

“It’s a fact that gold is technically in oversold territory, but with the upcoming U.S. Fed rate decision in the coming days, no traders are ready for exposure. Fund managers and retail investors appear to be reducing their long positions, with data from the CFTC and gold fund SPDR indicating the unwinding of long positions and cash outflows,” the expert said.
