Gold on MCX also closed around the day’s high with a rally of nearly a thousand points and the bulls gained a short term technical advantage. We are repeatedly advising market participants to stay long on gold in recent days and always be positive on the yellow metal. The outlook is positive today with some consolidation after this strong recovery and market participants are advised to follow key pivot levels on both sides. “
