Daily Commodity Technical
Gold –Daily Chart
Gold: The intraday view for Oct. Gold prices will remain positive until prices stay above 24800. Momentum above 25050 will take prices higher towards 25200 levels Areas between 24700-24660 have become immediate support for the counter. Any major reversal in trend is likely only on a breakout above 25400 levels. Until then, rallies towards 25200-25350 zones will face selling.
Silver –Daily Chart
Silver: Silver prices rallied to hit an intraday high of 34450 levels during the previous session but selling at higher levels dragged the prices lower towards 34025 levels by close. We reiterate that a near term reversal in trend is likely only once prices breakout above 34500 mark on a closing basis. The downtrend will resume only on a breakdown below 33300 mark. Until then prices will stay side ways.
