He said that short term investors can buy gold around from 51,300 51,500 per 10 gram level for the target of 52,600 per 10 grams mark while short term traders have a buy recommendation of around $1,750 in the spot market. However, long term investors are advised to start buying Keep depositing at the 51,500 level and every 4-5 per cent fall, while gold prices in the spot market are likely to accumulate more if they fall from the level of $1,720 to $1,725 ​​an ounce.

Key US jobs reports at the end of the week signaled a strong labor market for the US and established that the economy is not yet in recession.

This strong payrolls report strengthened the dollar index and dampened some of the recent gains in gold.

On her advice to gold investors, Sugandha Sachdeva of Religare Broking said, “Looking ahead, the overall bias is upward sloping, but we are likely to see a cool-off in the prices, with 52,500 per 10 grams and psychological $1800 per ounce mark are acting as tough resistance levels and limiting the upside. We expect profit booking to start after the recent rally, where gold will find support 51,100 per 10 grams ($1750 per ounce) initially and then on 50,500 per 10 grams ($1720 per ounce). A decline towards the mentioned support areas can be seen as an opportunity for the precious metal to accumulate, from where it could move higher and switch to the downside. 53,500 per 10 g level.”
