Gold price today: Yellow metal gains in India; May face resistance near Rs. 51,900-52,000.
India Gold October futures rose marginally on September 16 despite a muted trend in international spot prices. The US dollar gained the day before the US Federal Reserve policy decision.
Experts believe there is some volatility in the precious metal ahead of the outcome of the US Federal Reserve policy meeting later today. Upwards, the critical resistance is kept at RS. 51,900-52,000 per 10 grams.
On the Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), October gold deals traded 0.06 per cent higher at Rs. 51,800 per 10 grams at 09:20 hours. September Silver Futures is trading flat at Rs. 68,930 per kg.
The two precious metals showed strength in early trading sessions on Tuesday, but with the dollar index recovering, some gains are likely to return to higher levels.
Both precious metals are slightly more positive in international markets. Gold for Troy ounces closed at $ 1,966.20. Silver settled at $ 27.46 for Troy ounces. Even at MCX, both precious metals are settled on a flat note. The dollar session index recovered on Wednesday evening ahead of the US Federal Reserve meeting result, which saw gains in two precious metals.

The optimism of economic recovery has hit safe heaven demand and hence the price of gold. Meanwhile, economic stimulus measures and the hopes of a weaker dollar continue to provide low-level support for the metal.
However, investors can bet cautiously today ahead of the US Fed policy decision and press conference from Chairman Jerome Powell.
Technical outlook (London spot):
Estimating the range within the ounces $ 1880-1975 was initially intended and breaking on either side indicates a new direction for the cargo.
