BULLION METALS OUTLOOK GOLD - Gold prices traded lower on last week on the account of profit booking at higher levels while
strengthening dollar index will further lower gold prices in the near term. The Gold is on an upward
trajectory as investors look for a safe haven in an increasingly uncertain world. Despite the strength of
the dollar. Gold typically rises when there is fear and uncertainty in stock markets. But the stock market
has not been following its typical relationship to gold by selling off. Since Trump’s presidential win in
early November. We have had a bit of a triple-top development in gold over the last three days, just
below 29525-29680 – that is the level that’s going to offer some resistance. “We still think that the gold
market is targeting 30900-31000 level to the upside so long as we stay above 28890-29050 support.”
The precious Metal is Expected to trade in positive note in this week the crucial levels for Gold is 29580
is up side and 27800 is Down side
Chart Details - The Bollinger Bands show price giving support from the middle band a good test and
I expect price to eventually move back up to the upper band and push even higher into that band to set
up the final rally high. We have been expecting the 5 point broadening top to morph into a more bearish
7 point top and I believe we now have the point 6 low in place at 29700-29880. It is possible for one last
marginal low although I personally favour a higher low to form. Let’s see. The MCX Gold it is Expected
to touch the level of 30900 in next week Trading Session.

SILVER - There are three crucial reasons why the silver price will outperform the gold price when the
highly inflated paper markets disintegrate under the weight of massive debt and derivatives. While many
precious metals investors are frustrated by the ability of the Fed and Central Banks to continue to prop
up the markets, the longer they postpone the day of reckoning, the worse the collapse. The Significance
levels for Silver is 42090-43160 is up side and 40150-39890 is Down side.
Detail of Chart - The daily chart of the Silver shows it making a stair-step series of lower highs and
lower lows, following the path of the declining 50-day moving average. The inverse head-and-shoulders
pattern began forming last November, with the low that month forming the left shoulder, the December
low defining the head, and this month’s price action marking the right shoulder. Previous resistance in
the $ 16.30 area delineates the neckline, and it was successfully retested in Friday’s strong session. The
Significance Levels for Silver is 40890-41256 is Down Side and 43280-443860 is Up side silver is

announcement. Gold for February delivery settled down 0.15% at $ 1,235.0 on the Comex division of the

borrowing costs rise.
