Ravindra Rao said VP- Head Commodity Research at Kotak Securities “COMEX gold trades little changed near $1797/oz after a 0.4 % decline yesterday. Gold is choppy as support from Fed’s loose monetary policy stance and hopes of additional US stimulus measures is countered by higher bond yields, improving virus situation and continuing ETF outflows. Gold may remain directionless amid mixed cues however Fed’s loose monetary policy stance may continue to support.”
